It’s not an area we get to talk about all that often, but here at the iPhone App Review, we actually like the sports quite a lot.
In fact, we like them so much that when we have the chance to review a live score application, we tend to get a bit giddy.
We got today’s entry, FlashScore Livescore, from FlashScore, thinking it was just a footy scorer. Then, we flicked a finger and found the world’s entire sports registry at our fingers, complete with in-depth breakdowns, odds, and everything else in-between.
If that sounds like a good time out, then you need only slide down below the break to view our entire thought on the matter. Starting with:
Concept and Functionality
If you’ve ever owned a sports app before, then you’re probably already familiar with a lot of what FlashScore has to offer.
For the sport of your choice, you’ll get live breakdowns of the action, including plays, penalties, goals and fouls.
You can also check-up on games you missed, in case you had a board meeting or a piano recital to go to and couldn’t be glued to the streaming device of your choice.
However, we’d by laughably underselling FlashScore if we didn’t mention the sheer volume of data you’ll get here.
Let’s take hockey for instance. Within this one sport, you can get all that we’ve mentioned, plus lineup information, sports betting odds, team history, current rankings, future games, past games, and almost anything else you can think of.
And this is just one sport that FlashScore offers: They also include football (American and World), rugby, cricket, hockey, handball. badminton, beach soccer, boxing, darts, floorball, snooker, and water polo. And we’re still not done with that list.
Enough said on that front! Now onto the pretty side of FlashScore.
