GoLearn Soccer for Kids is like having a personal soccer coach in the palm of your hand. Created by a professional soccer coach, the app provides more than 30 video drills to instruct coaches, parents, and players on a variety of subjects. While the videos are intended for kids between U6 and U12, players of all ages and levels can benefit from them. These high-quality videos contain warm-ups, stretches, proper skills and training drills, games, cool downs, and more.
A must-have for any sports fan, ESPN’s ScoreCenter brings you up-to-the-minute scores from over 500 sport leagues around the world. The soccer portion of the app is fairly comprehensive, allowing you to follow the major soccer leagues including MLS, the English Premier League, Championship League, La Liga, Bundesliga, and Series A. You can follow soccer around the world, or focus in on your favorite country or team.
SoccerCard SKS lets you create an unlimited number of personalized virtual soccer cards of you and/or your favorite players. The interface is pretty slick and very easy to use, and each card is formatted to look like an actual trading card. The “front” displays the player’s photo and basic info. You can use the iPhone’s camera to take a player’s photo, or you can upload a photo from your library.
Real Soccer is the only game in this review, and I can’t believe it only costs 99 cents. Its graphics are top-notch, game play is incredible, and the details and customization are unreal. One person can play this game, but it also has multiplayer functionality. You can choose which team you want to be on (USA, Manchester United, and dozens of others).
Hey, soccer lovers! I searched the App Store and came up with my list of must-have soccer apps for the iPhone and iPod touch. Some of these apps, like Real Soccer and SoccerCard, are directly related to soccer. Others, like TVULite and Wunder Radio, are more general, allowing you to access a variety of content in addition to soccer. I enjoy watching soccer, have a good grasp on the basics, and am gaining a better understanding of the game’s intricacies. It’s true—I can’t bend it like Beckham, but I have no trouble spotting a great soccer app when I see it.
I’m a refugee from the land of the dinosaur phone, where you hit a button three times to get a “C” and four times to get an “S.” You can imagine how my world changed when I got the iPhone. My first discovery was that the onscreen keyboard makes it a lot easier to compose and send e-mail or texts. I love that I can access my three e-mail accounts wherever I am. I no longer have to wait until I get to the office to be on top of the action.
MLB At Bat not only gives you real-time scores and schedules, but also provides standings, SMS alerts, video, and even live-game action. With the paid version, you can follow your favorite teams using video, box scores, pitch-by-pitch, and even live audio. For just shy of ten dollars, it is the almost as good as being there (maybe even better depending on how your team is doing). This one is a “must-have” for baseball fans.
