SportzPicks (free)

4 out of 5 Stars

One thing many sports fans like to do to is share their enthusiasm with their friends. More often than not, such debates come down to who you believe will win a game. These days, you don't even have to be face to face to make these debates happen. Online fantasy sports are booming, from rotisserie leagues to simple 'pick 'em' contests. SportzPicks is the newest entry in online sports prediction gaming, with a twist.

This app by SportzRush is a straightforward game where you pick the outcome of six games and send your choices to friends who you wish to compete against after first setting up the app and linking your friends to it via Facebook. You can then choose who'll win games in eight different sports, including the NFL and soccer. The results are then logged and displayed for all to see.

In terms of use, the app is a breeze to set up. The design is simple, but appealing. The Facebook connectivity is solid; there was a glitch or two during testing but that was more due to network connection. All in all, SportzPicks is a great app that allows for you to have some bragging rights (or endure some ribbing) over sports with your friends.
