World Cup 2014 - quick, comprehensive and free!

Published by at

If you've even a casual interest in the football World Cup starting tomorrow then you might be interested in a decent Windows Phone application to keep track of it all. I've found one such below that's quick and easy to use - perfect for answering most workplace and family questions about schedule and results so far.

From the Store description:

All the 2014 Brazil World Cup results, fixtures, standings and scorers in real time, starting from the preliminaries straight to the final in Brazil!

You can follow your national team, check its match schedule in its way to the Cup, and share your comments with soccer fans from all over the World.

It works very well, though obviously most things are set to zero at the moment, since the tournament has started yet!

The panorama spans schedule, results, standings, players, and much more - it's all fast and laid out very well....

The 'Matchday' nomenclature is a little confusing in places, since the headers in green only signify the start of a period of days, but you'll get the hang of it etc. Shown on the left here are some of the qualifying matches, by the way. Drilling down into a match when it's in progress gives live data, plus social media comments on each match and (presumably eventually) video links - but you'll have to wait for the action to start before we get an idea what's included here.

There are dozens of other World Cup helper applications in the Store, but you might like to start, at least, with this one. You can download this for free in the Windows Phone Store.
