The Best For News:


The ESPNsoccernet is an extremely comprehensive, yet slick iteration of the huge website. You can choose the leagues that you are particularly interested in to get the latest news and results and can also do the same for specific competitions, both club and country based. As well as providing comprehensive data for the top European leagues, the MLS and the Australian A-League is also covered for good measure.

Football League – Official Clubs’ App

If you support a club plying their trade in the Championship, League One or League two, then their official apps are something that should interest you. There are free and premium options available, with the premium offering giving you access to video content, such as match highlights (24 hours after the game) and also a Google map function to help you to find your way to the stadium!
The free offering includes everything you would expect from an official app – the latest news, fixture information and league tables amongst others.

Sky Sports News

This app delivers everything you could want from a football news app. What helps it to stand out from the crowd though is “Sky Sports News Radio”. This is a new service that broadcasts 24/7, focusing soley on the breaking sports news. If you have a Sky Mobile TV account, this app also provides easy access to the Sky Sports News live app.

Best For Video

ESPN Goals

Everybody loves goals! Without them, the game would be pretty dull, wouldn’t it?
ESPN Goals is a premium app that allows you to see all of the goals, “within minutes” of the ball hitting the back of the net, apart from on Saturdays when the Premiership goals aren’t usually available until 5:15 PM – which is still considerably earlier than they are shown on Sky Sports and Match Of The Day. A 30-day pass costs £3.99, or if you’d prefer you can subscribe for a season for £29.99.

Football Manager Handheld 2012

“The greatest job on Earth!” many say when referring to the world of football manager. The app is stand alone to the PC and Mac-based version of the game, which allows you to take control of a club of your choice and (hopefully) lead them to glory by making all of the important decisions, such as formations, tactics, and transfer dealings.

EAS FC Companion

If you’re a football fan, then it’s pretty likely that you are partial to a game of the latest incarnation of EA sports’ massive football franchise Fifa! A few years ago EA launched a game mode called “Ultimate Team”, which essentially allows you to buy, sell and trade players to build your team and play against the AI and against fellow players online.

Players can be bought and sold via online auctions via a web app, but with the EAS FC companion, you can access this on the go! You needn’t ever miss out on an auction while you’re on the go.
