CWC Review for Bloggers
As the #1 Cricket World Cup App for the Android Market, Apppli’s Cricket World Cup 2011 promises cricket addicts the full World Cup experience live on their mobiles. But does it live up to its 5 star ratings?
Features - Live cricket matches, scores and news. - Live cricket commentary from cricket’s most renowned commentators. - Players’ individual twitter feeds. - Complete database of player, team and venue stats, records and trivia. - Notifications and reminders
Pros Amongst the cricket apps we have seen so far on Android, this app arguably has the best user interface. It is also very comprehensive in terms of features with live score, commentary, statistics and World Cup trivia. The live notifications for scores and wickets and the ability to add reminders for matches to your calendar are what set it apart from the competition. However the most innovative feature of the app is how it embraces social media, recognising how for the first time Twitter feeds can add zing to the usual stats and trivia.
Cons The app would definitely benefit from live video streaming, a feature that Apppli is considering developing for a future release. It is also not available on all Android handsets, requiring Android 2.0+.
Verdict This is undoubtedly an easy, fast and comprehensive way to follow the Cricket World Cup 2011, with added social benefits for cricket lovers. Whilst there are other cricket apps out there, this is definitely your best bet for live World Cup action on your Android!
