Sports Fans Go Mobile

MobileSport If you have a mobile phone or an iPad or other connected device, you must have used it to check on the progress of your team online. There are a number of great apps that you can get on your phone that can help you keep up to date with all the latest goings on from the world of your favourite sport.

Sports fans who can’t watch the game, match or tournament would do well to download the BBC iPlayer Radio app. Unlike the BBC Sports app which is little more than a mobile-friendly version of the website, you can use this app to listen to sporting events such as the Ashes lives on your mobile on Radio 5 Live or Sports Extra while you work or while you are on the move. The app is easy to use, and you can programme in alerts so you don’t miss your favourite games.

If you don’t subscribe to Sky but want to see some of the games, then the Sky Sports TV app is for you. The app itself is free and you can subscribe to the sky sports channels, including the four Sky Sports channels, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports News and Sky News for only £4.99 per month plus VAT. You’ll have to watch over a WiFi connection to make sure you don’t rack up some really high bills though.

If it’s the thrills and spills of Formula One for you, then the F1 2013 Timing app is the one. At £19.99 the price is quite high, but if you are a dedicated fan then this app is totally worth it. There’s so much more information to see from 3D driver tracking which lets you see who is where on the track. Additionally, there are also lap times, info on the cars and tyres, control messages, text commentary live and more.

When it comes to betting on your favourite sports, there is a move from the bookies to the computer, and now with the increase in the number of people using mobile phones, onto mobile. You can check all the latest odds at Freebets.org on your tablet or phone while you watch the game and download the appropriate app that will get you the biggest payout.

With apps from William Hill, Betfred and all of the other bookies, you can be sure that you will be able to place your bets and win big.

If you love sports, but struggle to find people to watch them with, you should download Fanatic. This social sports app lets you find out where you can watch your favourite team, and lets you chat with fellow fans and arrange meetups in venues showing the match.
