We’re just a few short days away from the Final Draw of FIFA’s 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the football event that pits the globe’s top countries against each other for the coveted championship every four years. The prestigious event is sure to have many fans and followers, and FIFA’s making it easy for fans to follow on the go with a brand new official app.
The Android version of the official FIFA app is now sitting in the Google Play Store for free. The app will not only serve as a definitive source of information for the big tourney, but will also be a one-stop shop for all things FIFA. News, videos, rankings and more will keep you in tune with the many leagues and football clubs around the world.
A quick stroll through the app reveals an experience that is breathtakingly refreshing. Many sports organizations tend to completely disregard the “rules” of Android app design, but FIFA nails it right on the head with their official app. It conforms to the latest Android design guidelines, including the new-style sliding drawer and a card-based UI. It’s a sad state of affairs when bad app design is so common that you have to applaud something like this, but we’ll do it anyway. Find the free download in the Google Play Store.
