The Official England App
Like most World Cup apps, the Official England App keeps you up to date on the latest World Cup news, as well as providing info on fixtures and player profiles. However, the advantage of buying this ‘official’ app developed by the FA is that it has access to video footage from FA.TV – the video channel on the FA’s website. This includes behind-the-scenes footage from England training sessions, as well as interviews with Capello, Rooney and co. The only thing I didn’t like was the weird chequered background used for text on the news section, which makes your eyes go a bit wobbly.

Sun Football – World Cup Edition
The Sun’s football app is a lot like the paper itself: it's packed with eye-catching info-nuggets that are good for browsing through on the train, but a bit lacking in depth - and there’s also some very sloppy text formatting that suggests the Sun’s publishing system is unfamiliar with the concept of the apostrophe. In addition to the main news section, the app also includes a ‘match centre’ with live coverage of matches in progress. There’s an extensive photo-gallery, a selection of video clips, and a ‘wall-chart’ that uses the iPhone’s touch-controls to let you quickly flick through each set of group matches.

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)
Here's a suggestion for Android developers: get your UI designed by someone other than a child. I can't believe how amateurish all these apps look. No wonder they're free. Do the paid ones look any better?
Good work, Reg
Nice mix of both Android and iPhone apps there. Much appreciated.
