The Off Switch
Much more important for the next few weeks.
Kick off is mere days away - this coming Friday, no less, with South Africa vs Mexico and Uruguay playing France - so now's the time to get your smartphone loaded up with World Cup goodies. Whether you'll be watching from home, at a friend's house, down the pub - or even in South Africa itself, here are our ten favourite apps, …
A really unique iPhone app providing incredible live statistics and visualisations including every pass, every shot, every tackle and every foul for all 64 games.
Also includes a 'Player Influence' feature to display in a tag cloud like interface which players are having the biggest impact on a game and enables users compare player v player, team v team and to share their analysis using Twitter and Facebook.
Only launched on Friday, really worth checking out:
because we want to vent our spleens over the scores! not just suggest other apps. 80 & 75%s?
I liked the vuvuzela app that proclaimed "We work of almost all phones!"
Also the ad about prayer. England will need it, though obviously they'll have to be fervent and righteous to be effectual and availeth anything (James 5:16 in case you had to ask)
This is a Predict The Scores game that is free to play and has round by round and overall cash (well, voucher) prizes!
Only available for Jailbroken iDevices unfortunatly, but it allows you to have mini-head to head challenges with your friends and climb up the leaderboard.
Part of a university research project it seems, support UK research and get this on the toplist.
It's my world cup 'Bible'
Gorgeous interface - and really quick/intuitive too.
All the fixtures (viewable in lots of different ways), news (for the entire tournament, or just for your team), points, groups, teams, venues, venue photographs, location photographs - and even maps and satellite imagery! You can zoooom in from above on stadiums!!!! Right down to the grass.
It push downloads scores, and who's qualified automatically in the background and is just really cooool.
