If you love soccer you never want to miss when your team is playing in the World Cup. Well, thanks to the PushMyFoot app for the iOS now you never have to! PushMyFoot allows you to track games live and also find information on what games are coming up!
Part of what makes this app work is the simple interface. While some may be turned off by the simple artwork, this app loads quickly and is very easy to navigate through. When you open it up you’ll start out viewing a list of games sorted by “Groups.” You can also sort the games by Date or Venue by touching the buttons at the top of the screen.
Once you find the game you want to follow all you have to do is touch it. It will bring up a full overview of what’s going on in the game. The teams playing and the score are shown at the top of the screen, and a detailed list of what’s going on in the game is shown below. The live information shows all kinds of things from offside calls to substitutions, penalties shots and exciting plays!
At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find a menu with three other buttons besides the “Games” one that you start out viewing. Touching the “Groups” button will show a list of all the groups and what countries are in each group. All you have to do to find out how your country is doing is find it’s flag and touch that group to see the detailed standings of their group!
You’ll also find a list of all the players that are involved in the World Cup under the “Teams” button at the bottom of the screen. To view a list of players for any team all you have to do is find that team and touch it. The list of teams can be sorted alphabetically or by the previously mentioned “Groups.” this is toggled by touching the buttons at the top of the screen.
The final menu option is the “Venues” button. This simply brings up a list of all the stadiums that are being used for the 2010 World Cup. Touching any of them will bring up detailed information about that stadium. At the top of the screen you’ll see the city where the stadium is located and its capacity. Just below this you’ll find three buttons that allow you to view a detailed description of the stadium, a picture of it, and an overview of where the stadium is on a map!
My overall impressions of this app are that it is very functional, and offers a lot of good information in an easy to view format. If you’re a big soccer fan, but you find yourself away from the TV when a lot of the games are going on, you’ll love this app.
