What is Sports Fan Widget for Mac

Sports Fan Widget helps you keep an eye on your favorite sports teams by providing all the information you need in one small, user-friendly widget. Show the current scoreboard, full results from previous days, the upcoming schedule (game times are displayed in your local time), or current division and standings. The widget supports baseball (MLB and minor leagues down to Class A), basketball (NBA, WNBA, and Men's NCAA college), football (NFL and NCAA college), and hockey (NHL).

You can open multiple instances of the widget to track different sports or teams -- each instance of the widget will remember your selections.

Latest version (1.3.82) has a peculiar glitch that could probably be easily corrected if the developer knew about it. It fails to show the standings for the NBA Eastern Conference or for that conference's Southeast division. The standings do not load and the spinning gear shows on the widget. All other divisions seem to work properly.

I just found this note on the developer's website: " if the widget doesn't display correctly even after updating to the latest version, try refreshing the widget (by hitting <command>—R after selecting it on the Dashboard)." This solved the display problem.

I've been waiting for the developer to fix the problem where no NBA scores are displayed. This isn't it. As well, the dev. still cannot package his widget so that it will install without an error message when decompressed Apple's native Archive Utility or Stuffit Expander. I have to use Pacifist to extract it correctly with admin privileges. I think this app is on its last legs, sad to say.

This file always unpacks with problems using the default system Archive Utility. When I try to install the widget I get an error message saying the file is damaged. Usually Stuffit Expander can decompress it so it will install properly, but for this version not even Stuffit worked. So I used Pacifist, which enabled me to extract it with admin privileges. This made the difference and I was able to install SportsFan Widget successfully. This is one of only a few apps where I have this problem.

Nice little widget.... useful, works pretty well.... EXCEPT... Using the NBA option, the standings by "conference" won't load for "East." Each division loads fine and even the "Western Conference" works.... funny little quirk.... other than that ....great... salute the developer for continuing to perfect this.

This update, 1.3.67, restored the NFL coverage that crapped out a few days ago. However, for some time now, whenever I decompress the Sports Fan Widget with the OS X default app, Archive Utility, the widget is reported as corrupt when I try to install it. If I use the old reliable Stuffit Expander, it works just fine. Since most other dmg files decompress just fine, without corruption, I have to wonder what the developer is doing here. What does he use to make his dmg files? I can't complain too loudly because this app has always been free, but it seems to me there is an issue here.

I downloaded it from MacUpdate and from the developer's site and it won't install. OS X reports that it is corrupt. So, instead of decompressing it with the default Archive Utility, I used the old reliable Stuffit Expander and the resulting widget installed properly.

"Version 1.3.65 seems to have everything back running smoothly..." Close, but not quite everything; there may be other problems, but so far all I've noticed (in the College Football section), is that the AP Top 25, and the Coaches Poll rankings aren't accessing (but for me, those are extremely significant problems). I understand that this is Freeware, and appriciate how well it's worked over the years (and how well it works even now), but would love to see all of the features I'm used to using, up and running again. Thanks in advance for anything you can do.

I use SportsFan daily to track all my sport teams, but the newest version of Webkit affects the widget (From the dev's site:) NOTE: due to a bug in CSS rendering (selection of alternate style sheets) in WebKit included in Safari 5.0.6 & 5.1, the widget currently does not display properly when the latest version of Safari is installed (e.g., under MacOS X 10.7 "Lion"). This should resolve itself once Apple fixes this bug - registered developers please duplicate rdar://problem/9567255 (Safari 5.1: switching alternate stylesheets doesn't work)

Mr. Amann, Thanks for continuing your incredible support of this awesome widget. I did have one feature request that has come up in the midst of these frequent minor updates: Is there a way that you could implement the updates so that every time we need to re-install the widget for update purposes, the widgets we usually have open remain open and saved? For instance, I always have three widgets open: NBA, MLB, and NFL. I have my favorite teams selected as: BOS Celtics, BOS R-Sox, & NE Patriots (no comments please). Every time I update the widget, I have to open up all three widgets and choose my favorite teams and reposition the widgets all over again. Is there a way to avoid this? Thanks so much. If any users could let me know, that would be great.

i'm not a big widget person at all. i tried hundreds of them when they first came out and decided most just aren't worth the while. i let about six of apple's widgets come through -- and two 3rd party ones: iStat and Sports Fan. it's sooo useful with its live updating. remember that scene in The Matrix when this guy is looking at the screen of numbers and symbols falling down the computer screen and he says he sees right past it and all he sees is a beautiful blonde or streets and buildings, etc.? that's how i feel about this widget - i can follow the triangles -- see who's on what base, at bat, pitching -- and follow a game like i'm there. well done.

This widget does everything that it says it does. I have never run into any problems with the widget after one full year of use. There have been no network or CPU performance hindrances as a result of the widget. My only suggestion would be to offer an even "larger text" option for team names and scores. I have my resolution set to 1920x1200 on my 17" MBP. When I set the Sports Fan Widget preference to, "larger text", the text still appears rather small, albeit a bit larger than the standard preference. All in all, a fantastic widget that actually does what the developer says it does - nothing more, nothing less.

For some reason when i'm using the NBA scoreboard, and i advance past the current day, it always says no games are scheduled. This has been happening for a long while and i'm hoping i can figure out what's causing it or it will get fixed. I really enjoy this app for its simplicity and seeing the upcoming schedule to find out what time and who my team plays later on this week is one of its best and most simple features, yet its not working anymore. I've tried re-installing/ re-downloading it and still doesn't work. Any suggestions?
