101 Great Goals: iPhone App Review

For soccer fans on the go, mobile apps are incredibly useful tools so you can follow your favorite sport wherever there’s a cellular connection. So I was particularly interested to see that one of the most popular soccer video sites, 101 Great Goals, had launched an iPhone app recently. Its web site is a must-visit, so I was curious to see if the app could come close.

The 101 Great Goals iPhone app is a perfect extension of the 101 Great Goals website. Simply said, it does what 101 Great Goals does best which is providing you with great video content that is otherwise difficult to find.

The iPhone app, which is free, features a stream of the latest news and videos of the day. You can scroll through the ‘news feed’ and select which items you’d like to read or watch. The beauty of the app is its simplicity. You want to watch a video of Andy Carroll in his Liverpool press conference? Click the feed item, push the play button on the next page of the app and the video loads within seconds.

In addition to goal highlights and video interviews, there are also blog posts from 101 Great Goals.

If you’re on the go and like to stay on top of what’s happening in the soccer leagues around the world, especially the Premier League, I highly recommend the 101 Great Goals iPhone app.

    Quick response…

    Andy, definitely agree with your thinking and an Android app is in development.

    Jeff – we are restricted on the app to YouTube videos…

    The only problem with the app is that it doesn’t have all the goals for each game like the website does. Unless I’m missing something. I guess that would be pretty tough to do though since some of videos on the website require flash.

    This is the same post as I posted on 101GG where you are crosspromoting each other.

    Nice but limited.

    Smartphones % are 33% RIM (Blackberry) and Android and Apple at 26 and 24% (it was news recently when android passed apple) which I believe are the american numbers where Apple does the majority of its business.

    Limiting yourself to only one quarter of the smartphone market seems ridiculous. Why? It would be like someone try to have Internet Explorer sites only. Remember those signs?

    Android numbers will only grow since they are carried by multitudes of phone manufacturers and carriers. (Notwithstanding the lawsuits which Microsoft’s dying empire is sponsoring against the Google made Android.)

    I am clueless how the Blackberry market works since most people I know have it becayse of work but that too is a huge smartphone market and it never ceases to amaze me how fanboism of the tech kind seems to overpower common sense.

    If you want to reach people why would you limit yourself at 24% of smartphone users instead of 50% or 83% (the top three)?

    Heck, if the Android numbers go up, how long can you even justify being exclusive on the THIRD most popular platform?

    >is a man ahead of his time, both in terms of technology an

    Ahead of his time?
    Just another fanboi sheeple who is using his personal tastes as a barometer of whats really out there.

    And if he is so technologically inclined, them by all means, you can make your own Android apps:

    I have no horse in this race BTW, I use a regular cell phone.
    I do work in tech and find it astounding that in a field where you are trying to get as many people possible to visit your site/buy your app, someone could have so little common sense when it comes to business.

    Brand allegiance like team allegiance can blind one very easily.

    This post takes nothing away from the work both sides do.
    101GG is my first site every morning as well as all of my coworkers and while we are not huge fans of the EPL (besides the 4-5 big money teams), this site does a great job, entertaining while not ‘trying’ to be funny.
