The World Cup is finally here, and with the first game of the competition almost underway with South Africa playing against Mexico, we have decided to list 10 of the best World Cup applications that make your life so much simpler when you just have to know there score, news, injuries, goals, bookings and sendings off, wherever you are.
Each smartphone seems to have their own special application dedicated to the World Cup, and we will start with South Africa Live, an iPhone application which makes use of Opta stats. You can choose to receive push notifications, check out all the news, and even go to the chat forum, photo gallery and watch streaming video. The iPhone also has another application up it’s…er, sleeve. Maybe sock would be better? Manage Your Football Club is more on the games side of things, and lets you choose from 100 countries and focus on taking them all the way to the World Cup.
Another rather interesting application for the iPhone is the Vuvuzela World Cup app. Great fun this is, just make sure you do not over use it. Not familiar with a Vuvuzela? Check out what it is here. This app will let you blow into your iPhone mic, and lets you play the Vuvuzela as if it was a real one. There is also a two player mode to see who can blow for the longest. Have fun with this one.
There are also three other iPhone applications available in ITV1 2010 FIFA World Cup, which would be the go to application if you want to be able to watch highlights, all for free. FIFA World Cup is an official game from EA, and Sun Football — World Cup Edition is another app that brings, news, stats and all the rest of the football info. The difference being that this also comes integrated with The Sun’s World Cup Dream Team fantasy league, letting you control your entire squad from your phone.
It seems as though Nokia and BlackBerry have taken a backseat when it comes to applications, most of them doing what they all want to do, and that is providing up to the minute World Cup news to you. If you want to see the rest of these applications, then check out the source below.
