Goal Live Scores
Goal.com is one of the biggest football news websites on the planet and their live scores app is simply magnificent too.
Information on over 10,000 clubs is available at your fingertips with this incredible app, which also allows you to set push notifications, analyse form and tables as well as look at recent head-to-head results.
The biggest feature of the Goal.com app, however, has to be its advanced match coverage. Not only can you get real-time updates of major developments, you can also follow proceedings live thanks to the animated commentary that is very similar to the running-ball feature used by the likes of Unibet. It arguably offers the most detailed live match coverage of any app on the market.
A word of warning, though: watching the match cast can drain your battery fast.
Sky Sports Score Centre
Football fans have come to expect a level of quality associated with anything carrying the Sky Sports brand and the company’s Football Score Centre ticks all the boxes needed to be a great app, particularly if you’re a more casual fan / punter.
The Sky Sports Football Score Centre’s coverage isn’t quite as comprehensive as some of its competitors but it does include all of the top leagues as well as an extensive range of English football.
What really stands out, though, is the extra features.The Football Scores Centre allows you to track games, set favourite teams, turn on notifications and even view starting XIs. Perhaps most impressively, though, it boasts a very handy ‘pub finder’ tool to locate the nearest establishment with Sky Sports, meaning you never have to miss a game again.
Another of the long-running live score services on the internet is FlashScores and, with a total of 26 sports to monitor, their app is another fantastic option for sports consumers.
In terms of football alone, the FlashScores app covers nearly 1,000 different competitions from all over the globe. This extensive service, combined with a crisp design, makes it a leading candidate for any sports enthusiast.
The app also boast a number of handy features such as tables, head-to-head results, and team lineups, all included to give users an in-depth and reliable service. Moreover, the push notifications are extremely responsive so you’ll never miss a goal again.
A global audience of 50 million users can’t be wrong.
The original live scores service, which first hit the internet way back in 1998, also provides one of the industry’s first apps and it still very much ranks amongst the very best.
This app possesses a very simplistic aesthetic but provides oodles of information, including starting lineups., live text commentaries and real-time tables.
Arguably the best feature about LiveScore, however, is the fact it also covers basketball, hockey, cricket and more. It is the one-stop service for sports enthusiasts.
If you’re only interested in football, though, there are better options on the market.
