Here’s another reason to get an iPhone if you don’t already have one. Sky Sports has released a free app (available in the AppStore for the Apple iPhone) entitled Football Score Centre.
The new iPhone app features a picture of Jeff Stelling on the opening screen. Once the app loads, you can see:
- The latest sports news on a ticker,
- Today’s football fixtures,
- The latest football scores updated in real-time,
- and more.
If you select one of the matches that are in progress or have been played, you can read the text commentary from the game, see photographs (for example, the player celebrating after a goal has been scored), the team line-ups, and match statistics.
I haven’t had a chance to use the app during a real match yet, but so far the iPhone app looks very impressive and gives you the feel of Sky Sports News, as far as the fonts, colors and how they display the news on the right side of the screen and in the tickers below (on programmes such as Through The Night, for example).
