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.

Soccer Scores

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.

Closing Words

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.

    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.
