There are numerous ways to stay updated with your favourite sports, however most of them require you to be in front of TV or computer. Mobile apps with such functionality are very rare, which is why Free FlashScore app for iOS deserves a mention. Not only one or two sports, the app offers scores from 26 sports and more than 3000 competitions. Thus, you can easily know the latest scores from football, tennis, basketball and many more sports.
User friendly design
The app has been designed to be very intuitive and user friendly. Therefore unlike other apps, the app doesn’t take ages for you to find the results of your favourite team or current table of your popular league.
When you launch the app, the main screen will appear for a few seconds. After that you will be served with the overview of today’s matches. The list of matches is divided by the leagues (which may be opened). In the left corner of the screen you have the icon for selecting other sports, while every sport has a different color layout. In the upper right corner, you can click on the calendar icon to see results from the previous 7 days (for the sport you are currently at) and to see fixtures for the next 7 days.
Lower part of the main screen provides us with the main overview of all games for today (All Games), current live games (LIVE), list of the matches we have selected with the star icon as our favourite ones (My Games) – it’s by the way great feature and tables for all available leagues within selected sport (Tables).
Match detail offers basically everything we might need to know. With football we get the main Summary (eg. goal shooters, cards, subs., etc.), detailed Stats (e.g. ball possession, goal attempts, shots on/off goal, free kicks, etc.), and also nicely designed Lineups, H2H stats and league Table. In case you would like to know the current Odds for selected game, you can easily click on the Odds tab and you will get an overview of the odds from top 5 online bookmakers.
In case you are not really a football fan and you prefer to watch tennis results, you will be surprised to know that this app offers “point by point” results for all top tennis events (ATP/WTA). So it’s pretty easy to see the whole progress of any the previous set(s) in specific tennis match.
Fast live scoring service
In order to find out if the app has what it says in app description (“fast sport results”) we made a small test to see how fast the scores are being updated in comparison with other popular live scoring apps (Livescore, SofaScore and The Football App). The testing has been done with selected matches from the top European football leagues (Premier League, Primera Division, Bundesliga, Serie A). The result was better than what we have been expecting. In nearly all tested matches/games, FlashScore app has been faster with scores updates than any other mentioned app. So if you are looking for one reason why to download this app, here you have a really good one.
Developers from FlashScore team have done seriously good job with this app. We could hardly find one thing we don’t like about it.
It has clean crisp graphics, sharp colors, very intuitive navigation and it provides everything that sport fan might be expecting from live scoring app.
In terms of sports/leagues coverage, there is not any other app that would be anywhere near to FlashScore app. Where else you can follow results from 26 sports in one place? Just the football covers over 900 competitions, so you may watch live results even from lower leagues in countries like Ecuador, Chile or Peru.
FlashScore app brings service that is already well-known to over 40 million users of FlashScore website network. The main task for developers was pretty clear – to bring the successful service from website projects into the native iOS app. With such a huge user base and potential feedback from them, it would be shame not to release great app millions of iOS users will be using. If the app will be well supported from the developer’s side, we can look forward to long-lasting sports enjoyment.
