Navscore iOS & Android app taken down from App Store & Play Store: Here are some alternatives you can try

Navscore is a fairly popular app on iOS and Android that provides sports fans with a quick API for reports, stats, fixtures, and goals of the top 5 leagues in the world.

Like any other app, Navscore has its shortcomings. But these shortcomings have kept piling up and have finally led to the app being pulled from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store for Android and iOS respectively.


The Navscore team indeed acknowledged the problem and issued an official statement on its website. However, the site cannot be reached at the time of writing.

So we’ve added a screenshot of the cached version of the statement. Check it out below:


According to the official statement, the app should be restored to the App Store in late April or the first week of May for iOS users to download once again.

In case you have Navscore installed on your iOS or Android smartphone, you should avoid uninstalling the app since you won’t find it on any official app store.

Although, Android users can still sideload the app via an APK file. A quick Google search would show a boatload of guides to install APK files on your Android in case you’ve never done it before.
