Top 3 (free) World Cup Apps

With all the excitement around the World Cup, it's now more easier now than any other World Cup's before to follow the tournament on your phones or tablets (or even phablets). So I wanted to share with you three of the best apps (in my opinion)that you can use to get all the latest news and statistics right at your fingertips.

1. FIFA (iOS and Android, Free)- We're starting off with the official World Cup app and it certainly doesn't disappoint. It has all of the extensive coverage with commentary on all of the highlights of what is going on in the game with additional exclusive photos and videos. You can also do other things like enter the giveways to have a chance to win the actual kick-off ball. This has to be one of my personal favourites. You can pick up the iOS app here and the Android app here. However be warned, the push notifications can be too irritating.


2. Onefootball Brasil (iOS, Android and Windows phone, Free)- Onefootball has release a whole different app for the World Cup and it remains to be one of the polished. It has extensive World Cup coverage with national news as well as personalised push notifications (much better than the FIFA app). The interface is clean and follows the Google's design guidelines with a slight card like interface. Download the iOS app here , the Android app here and the Windows Phone app here

3. Google Now (Android, iOS and PC Free)- This may seem like a strange choice to have a smart virtual assistant but it seems as if Google is replacing putting a lot of small apps in to one awesome app these days.

Google has added a lot more than just score-tracking with this latest update. You can view the different groups, line-ups as well as the main events that have happened during the match. Minute by minute coverage is a welcomed change, and with this also being a voice assistant you can ask "When does (insert team name here) play next?" or "What was the score in the (Team 1) vs. (Team 2) match?" The best part is that you can view all of this if you just search for the World Cup on your PC or Laptop. You can click here if you want to view the current match score or what matches are coming up. For iOS, click here. If you're on Android (4.1+) and Google Now didn't come bundled with your phone or you want to check for an update you can do so by clicking here

At the end of the day, whichever app you install you can't really go wrong. If you are looking for a more detailed app that offers extensive coverage, I would either recommend the FIFA or Onefootball Brasil. If you want a basic app that allows you to check the score quickly, I would recommend Google Now.
