Let’s face it, during March Madness anything can happen.
It’s a time in college basketball where the playing field, or the playing court rather, is totally equal and everyone is able to start at square one. So, extreme underdogs and number one seeds essentially share the same space and have an equal opportunity to win it all.
In order to catch some of the action during this year’s March Madness, we picked out a few of the best apps to create your brackets and watch the tournament as it’s happening. With so many games being broadcast at once, it can be challenging to determine who beat who and which teams were upset by the team that wasn’t even supposed to have a chance.
The NCAA March Madness Live app is considered the official app for the tournament and it offers free streaming across all devices, so you can pick up games from stations TNT, TBS, truTV and CBS.
In order to access the service, users need to sign on to the March Madness website with their television service provider information, and from there, they’ll be able to view games, follow the in-between-game commentary and access a social and interactive feature that comes with the app.
Since the app directly links with the channels that will be playing the tournament, it’s probably your best bet for staying up to date on scores and game results as they unfold.
The Bracket Picker Madness app, for 99 cents, is really for the person who wants to create a bracket, but doesn’t want to research all of the stats and analytics that sometimes go into picking the final four teams.
Users can simply select which stats they feel will be most useful when teams face each other and the app automatically creates a bracket for you based on the data that you selected beforehand.
