The Associated Press Launches FIFA World Cup 2010 App


Want coverage from a source that has been at every World Cup match since 1930? Then look no further, as the Assoicated Press has released its very own FIFA World Cup 2010 mobile app for smartphones. It certainly isn’t the live video coverage that Sprint subscriber’s can procure through ESPN Mobile, but you will receive all of the news, previews, and analysis you could want.


Given the global nature of the World Cup, there is language support for English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese, and you can customize the UI skin to match your favorite team. Add in some exclusive video and photo content and you’ve got everything you could want to know about the World Cup in your pocket, including information on the various stadiums and regions showcased by the tournament.

The app  is available now from the Android Market, and the World Cup is a mere few days away. Who are you rooting for?

  2. Um, am I the only person to notice that this app is simply a browser link? Is this a 1.6 only sort of thing?

  7. I’m on a 2.1 Droid and after scanning said that there are no matches in the Market.

    2010 World Cup app by Luke Shan gives you a calendar of all matches. You can long press a match and add it to Google Calendar. Pretty helpful since I don’t need reminders for every match.

  25. “Sudafriva Live” seems really good. It plans to “comment” in real time all the matches via instant messages.
