If you are a football fan, and chance is you are if you are not from the US, then you have probably your favorite local team and a favorite league that you follow, as well as an interest in international leagues like the Champions League and the World Cup.

While it is certainly possible to read about major matches and events in the newspaper or online, mobile apps can add a lot to the experience.

When it comes to football applications for Android, Live Score Addicts - Soccer is without doubt the most popular in the niche.

One of the main reasons for that is support for a wide variety of teams, leagues and cups that you can follow using the app.

Live Score Addicts - Soccer

When you start the application for the first time it walks you through a setup process where you can pick leagues, teams and cups that you want to follow.

Support for teams and leagues is excellent. When you open the add teams dialog, you find options to add teams from dozens of countries.

While you find all major football nations for selection, you will also discover that you can add -- at the very least - the national teams of other nations such as Senegal, Haiti or Faroe Islands to the app so that you can follow them.

For many countries, you get options to follow a lot of different leagues. If you take England as an example: you can follow the English national team, the Premier League, League One and Two, the Championship, the FA Women's Super League, Conference National, North or South, the Premier Reserve League, the U21 Premier League, the Isthmian, Northern or Southern Football League, the Capital One Cup, the FA Cup and Trophy, Community Shield or the Football League Trophy.

Not only can you follow those leagues and cups, you can also follow individual teams that play in them. If you are a fan of York City, you can follow that team using the app and get notifications about its matches next to those of Barcelona, Munich or Arsenal.

Once you have made the initial selection -- you can always go back to the settings to add or remove teams, leagues or cups -- you are presented with a daily view of events. You can swipe left or right to check up on upcoming or past games.

Each game is listed with the competing teams, the time of kick off, and the league or cup the match is taking place under. The teams and leagues you follow are displayed prominently at the top so that you can't miss them easily on big match days.

A tap on a match opens pages full of details. Match events for example highlights statistics about the two competing teams, their form, average height and age, where the match takes place, and who is managing the teams. You can swipe to the right for media, lineups, statistics and live table information.

Not all are available prior to the match, and depending on the match type, some may not be available at all.

The application will notify you about important match details. From goals and assists to cards and substitutions.

Note: Ads are displayed on the match event pages.


If you are a football fan, you will certainly like this application a lot, especially if you like to follow different leagues and teams, or want to keep in touch while you are on the go.

The notifications and updates arrive fast, and it is possible to increase the update check frequency from the default ten second period even further, or slow it down if you prefer less frequent updates.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
