SpoW: Football Edition: Written iPhone App Review
Listen up, sports fanatics! Are you tired of missing out on the latest football (soccer) scores? Do you wish there could be an easier way to keep track of your favorite teams and leagues? Fret no more thanks to this amazing new app.
Concept and Functionality:
Sports fanatics will definitely go crazy over this great new app. SpoW: Football Edition works by bringing you extremely fast score updates from soccer games around the world. You can even link your Facebook account with the app for an even cooler social experience.
One of the things I really like about SpoW: Football Edition is how well all of the information is organized. You can quickly and easily see a list of all challenges being played today and tomorrow, along with scores of games that were played yesterday. You can also view extremely detailed stats for games, such as player lineup, penalties, and player details.
If you choose to follow individual teams, SpoW: Football Edition can optionally send you push notifications for goals and red cards. This is great for fans who aren’t able to keep an eye on the app all day but would still like to know what’s going on with their favorite teams. All you have to do is press on the whistle next to the match you want to track and you’re all set!
As I mentioned before, SpoW: Football Edition includes a unique social experience. Instead of just keeping an eye on scores, you can choose to make your own predictions. If you predict correctly, you can move up in rankings, hopefully earning cups along the way.
Also, there’s a handy interactive newsfeed that allows you to see the most popular matches and your friend’s predictions. Remember, this only works if your friends use the app and your Facebook account is linked to it. Therefore, do your best to recruit fellow football fans to the app!
Lastly, SpoW: Football Edition allows you to keep track of your personal stats via the Profile page. You can see how many cups you’ve earned, your division, activity, stats, and overall ranking. One of the great things about this app is that it can be as simple or as interactive as users want it to be.
SpoW: Football Edition is available to download for free from the App Store. There’s an optional app upgrade that you can purchase for $2.99 which would unlock your prediction stats, allow you to view the average predictions of nations and clubs, and banish ads. This is definitely a must-have app for fans of the game!
SpoW: Football Edition is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
