Best iPhone Apps For FIFA World Cup 2010
The 2010 edition of the FIFA World Cup is finally underway in South Africa. The next one month will see 32 teams battle it out for the much coveted championship.
While there is nothing that can substitute live action on TV, there are some cool iPhone apps that will keep you updated on the event besides letting you test your soccer knowledge. Here are five iPhone applications that we think are must-haves for every soccer fan during the next 30 days.
ESPN 2010 FIFA World Cup [iTunes Link]
This iPhone app is a great handbook that will offer a quick reference to the live scores, tournament schedule, hosting venue details and player profiles. You can also personalize the application by selecting your favorite team and track their movement as the tournament progresses. The iPhone app is free to download. However, you can also access premium features like live ESPN radio streams, video highlights, live commentary and studio analysis for an additional $7.99 (which we thought was quite expensive).
2010 World Cup South Africa [iTunes Link]
This iPhone app from Infindo Technology offers comprehensive coverage of matches for users on the move. The app offers text commentary for matches right from the announcement of the starting line-up to the end of the match. Users may get access to live text commentary of matches as well as track the live scores. The app also offers several other nuggets of information about the World Cup that will be a great read for soccer fans. The iPhone app retails at $0.99 in the App Store.
AP 2010 World Cup Coverage [iTunes Link]
This application from the Associated Press provides live game scores, schedules and rankings to the user on the move. You can access information on star players and tournament venues. The application is also available in French and Portuguese and is a great pick for iPhone users who speak these languages. The iPhone app has some very pretty graphics and is available for free in the App Store.
World Cup Factoids and History [iTunes Link]
Are you a history buff? This iPhone app is just for you. The application provides a lot of interesting tidbits and historical information about the World Cup, which is sure to get soccer fans excited. An excellent app to pass time this season and good thing is that you can download it for free from the App Store.
World Cup Trivia Challenge [iTunes Link]
Do you love soccer trivia? This is a great app to challenge your soccer knowledge by pitting yourself against an opponent. Players will have to answer as many questions as possible in the space of a few minutes and score a goal for three correct answers, for every wrong answer your opponent gets a point (opponent doesn't actually answer any questions). This is a wonderful app for you to play this soccer season. The iPhone app retails at $1.99 though it is available for $0.99 for a limited period.
We hope you like the iPhone apps and do drop us a line to tell us your favorite one. Which team are you cheering for? Which team do you think will win the 2010 FIFA World Cup?
