If you have a nine-to-five job, you know very well that 8:50 is not exactly the best part of your day. If you are not furiously running on your way to the office, you are already at work, you have turned your computer on, and you have just filled your mug with the first of many coffees.
During the 10 minutes that separate you from the start of a new working day, you would like to do a lot of things. You would like to check the latest news about your favorite team, to have a look at what's happening to their opponents in the league, at that big tennis match played at night, at the qualification round for the next Formula 1 Grand-Prix, at the latest news about golf.
The problem? You have only 10 minutes left. Only 10 minutes.
The Solution? Say Hello to 8:50 Sports Digest
If you like reading sports news, you often find yourself short on time and you have a smartphone or a tablet - 8:50 Sports Digest has got you covered.

"850 Sports Digest was the most intense project we have worked on together yet with me setting tight budgets and pushing on delivery times and asking the world of the quality of the look-and-feel and features. But as always, they delivered above expectation," the App's co-founder Bishop said.
