Soccer Scores - FotMob is one of the most popular and highly rated football applications for Android devices.
The free application provides you with options to follow your favorite teams and leagues, get news, fixtures, live text commentary, live scores, match stats and more.
Note: The app displays advertisement by default but you can make an in-app purchase to buy the premium version for €2.99 which gets rid of all applications and supports push notifications on top of that.
The app walks you through a quick set up process on first start where you may select teams or leagues that you are interested in. You can skip this step however and add teams, competitions or leagues later on at any time.
A tap on the menu icon displays the main menu of the application that lists all leagues you follow, your favorite teams, and general options.
A tap on "select league" or "view favorites" enables you to add leagues or teams that you are interested in to the application to follow them closely.
The app supports a wide range of leagues including national leagues like the Bundesliga or Premier League, the Champions League, and National competitions.
All major leagues are covered as well as many national leagues that are lesser known. You can follow Denmarks' second division or the Finnish Veikkausliiga for instance as well using the app.
You may star leagues and/or enable notifications, and this determines how information are presented to you in the application.
Leagues that you have stared are listed in the menu from where you may access them with a tap. This opens detailed information about the selected league including the current table, fixtures, news, and top scorers.
From there, you may tap on a team to display information about that team such as the last five matches, news, fixtures or squad information.
Soccer Scores supports a wide range of alerts. You may receive alerts when goals are scored, for fulltime results, or lineup information. This works both for individual teams, entire leagues and upcoming matches, and it is up to you to select the information you are interested in when you are setting up notifications.
News are offered in different levels. You can access worldwide news, including news about transfers or champions, but also news for select leagues or even individual teams. There is also a daily audio news section but it seems limited to UK leagues currently.
There is a TV schedules listing which lists games that are broadcast on national TV, and an all matches listing that lists all known football matches in a long listing.
Soccer Scores supports all major and many minor leagues and teams. What I like in particular about the app is that you can customize it to your liking. Want notifications only for your favorite team or league? You can do that. Want to keep up to date with everything that is happening in major leagues in Europe? You can do that to.
Everything is just a tap or two away, and you may customize notifications for leagues or teams individually to receive more or less information.
If you are interested in football, and who is not, this is the app that you may want to try to stay up to date with everything of interest in the football world.
