The best March Madness apps for iPhone that let you check scores, keep up on news, view bracket standings, and more!

March Madness is upon us and all the basketball fans will no doubt want to keep up with all the action. If there's a game you can't watch, your iPhone can easily let you check scores, view brackets, and more. These are currently the best App Store apps for iPhone to help you keep up with March Madness!

NCAA March Madness Live

The March Madness app by the NCAA is the official app for the tournament. Not only can you view brackets, news, an upcoming schedule — you can even log in with your cable provider and watch every single game live. You can even make your own brackets within the app. If you aren't sure what channels March Madness games are on in your area, there's a channel finder to fix that problem as well.

If you want the ability to watch every single game in the palm of your hands, get the official March Madness app by the NCAA.

NCAA Sports

The NCAA Sports app encompasses not only March Madness coverage but coverage of all NCAA events. Aside from all Division I scores and rankings, you can view all kinds of sporting events including baseball, basketball, hockey, and more. Choose the schools you want to follow and receive notifications and alerts for their standings and scores.

If you'd prefer an app that focuses on NCAA as a whole, not just basketball, NCAA Sports is what you want.

ESPN SportsCenter

ESPN SportsCenter covers pretty much every sporting type you could imagine across many different levels. Not only can you view NCAA information — but NFL, MLB, and more. You can set up push alerts for your favorite teams, check scores, watch highlights, read news, and more.

If you want one place to follow all your favorite teams, regardless of classification or level, get ESPN SportsCenter.

ESPN Tournament Challenge

ESPN's Tournament Challenge app lets you create brackets, join other peoples, invite your friends and more. You then compete with your brackets against everyone else to see who ends up being the Final Four. ESPN also offers a chance for someone to win $10,000 every year based on their brackets. Tournament Challenge ties in with the official SportsCenter app as well for live coverage and scores.

If you're a bracket fan and want to compete with friends, ESPN Tournament Challenge is for you.

CBS Sports

CBS Sports, like ESPN SportsCenter, lets you catch up on all your favorite sports in one place. Set push notifications for your favorite teams, view brackets, check out video highlights, read news, and more. The thing that stands out to me about the CBS Sports app is that you can view more information at a glance due to the way scores are presented.

If you want to quickly check scores on the go, CBS Sports does the best at displaying the most information in the least amount of time.

Help and how to editor for iMore. I can take apart an iPhone in less than 6 minutes. I also like coffee and Harry Potter more than anyone really should.

This is only because the U.S. is south enough to un-freeze in March. (Though the idea of basketball on ice does hold a certain appeal...)

Any comment or review on the ability to create a bracket on the phone? Several family members are "phone only" (no computer) and I'm trying to get a tournament together and I was tasked with finding out which app to use.
