5 Free IPL cricket apps for your mobile
| by Rossi Fernandes
The Indian Premier League or IPL as most of us know it as, is on in full swing. Now many of us are busy at work or are on our way home from work when most of these matches are played, so it’s hard to tune it on the action on TV. Many app development houses have been working on apps for various mobile platforms that let users stay updated with the latest happenings, scores, commentary and schedules of these matches. We’re looking at some of the free apps available for the most popular mobile platforms.
IPL 5 Calendar and Live Score (Android)
A rather feature rich app with widgets for the Android desktop
IPL5 Calendar and Live Score is one of the more popular IPL apps on the Android Play store with a ton of downloads and votes. Like most of the other free apps, you’ll find an ad banner on both the app and also the Android desktop widget, that gives you a reminder of upcoming cricket matches. The scoreboard lists all the recent matches along with the team logos along with detailed scores and statistics. If you’re looking for records broken through the series, you’ll find those details too through the Series Stats menu. Live scores are updated automatically and you also have the option of entering the frequency of updates. Users can choose to be notified when a wicket falls as well. There’s also a commenting section for those who want to leave comments for other app users to see. The live scores along with the ability to interact with other fans makes it a rather interesting app to use on your Android device.
The official app for the IPL cricket league
The IPL has its own official app out for Android and BlackBerry devices. The apps are pretty identical in terms of features on both platforms but there are a few differences as far as the user interfaces go - that’s it. The interface on the Android platform appears more colourful. There are detailed statistics and personal details of all the players from the various teams. You can also browse through the past few days and look at results of the matches held then. Users can also browse through photo galleries of matches and practice sessions being held at the different venues. Then, you have the list of all the matches being played at the different stadiums being clearly mentioned along with the teams. The BlackBerry app doesn’t have videos and the UI looks a little underwhelming. Nevertheless, it gives you the information you need.
