Not knowing the scores of important sporting events can be nerve-wracking to sports fans, so many turn to their electronic devices to put their mind at ease. Nielsen reports that nearly 60 percent of U.S. smartphone and tablet owners access sports scores on their mobile devices each day. In the case of smartphone owners, 24 percent say they look up scores at least two times each day. Smartphones, along with laptops, are unsurprisingly the preferred method of finding scores. Nielsen reports 16 percent of respondents use their smartphone most often to cheek scores, and 9 percent use a tablet.
