We showed you ProWidgets last month, an extensible widget platform for iOS created by iOS developer Alan Yip that offers support for widgets made by third-party tweak developers, and there have been a variety of different third party widgets created for ProWidgets that we've been showing you as they came out the most recent being the currency conversion widget.

Some good news for those sports fans out there is iOS developer Tim Perin has just released another third-party ProWidget called Sports ProWidget for viewing all kinds of miscellaneous sports information from anywhere in widget form.

Shown above, you can see what the widget looks like. From the Menu option, you will be able to pick from several different sports including:


  • NBA
  • MLB
  • NHL
  • NFL
  • NCAA Basketball
  • NCAA Football
  • Euro Football
  • UK Football
  • Intl. Football
  • MLS


You will then be able to see any games listed under those sports, and you can tap on them to see sport score information for that game. There is also a News option at the top right of the widget that you can tap on to bring up news relating to the sport that you have chosen.

As we showed you in the original review of ProWidgets, the tweak supports several different ways of opening different widgets. If you're an Activator fan, then you can assign an Activator action to Sports ProWidget. Alternatively, you can use CCLoader to add a quick shortcut to Control Center, or you can configure some of the built-in ProWidgets shortcuts for Notification Center without installing more tweaks like we did below:
