Launched way back in 2011, WatchESPN for iOS has delivered a slew of ESPN channels to mobile devices across the US. And today, the app has been given a facelift.

Now, in addition to serving up access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater, a live toolbar has been introduced to the iPad incarnation, which presents stats, scores and on-demand video clips from ESPN.com – without the user having to navigate away from any live-stream they’re watching.

You’ll see three main tabs across the bottom scroll of the screen: Live TV Lineup, Scores and Top Videos. A handful of other updates have been introduced, which you can read all about on the App Store link below.
