Sport applications for Nokia N8

Sport applications for Nokia N8

If you’re a fan of sports, then look no further. These applications you see before you will keep you updated with your favourite sports, whilst on the move, wherever you are (as long as you have connectivity that is). If you’re anything like me, then you will want to know what the score is for your favourite football team, in my case, that being Everton FC. There is nothing worse than missing the big match and not knowing what is going on, not knowing how your team is performing and in extreme cases, not knowing the future of your favourite team.


Sadly, for some weird reason, there are no very good sport applications available on the Ovi Store – and i wish i knew the answer as to why. Even though the applications aren’t the best, they’re free and do offer some form of news that keeps you updated and connected to your favourite sports – luckily they are free of charge. Hopefully at some point in the future, us sport fans will have applications that revolutionise the way we use our Nokia N8′s.

Football

This application provided by ESPNsoccernet is an awesome tool provided by ESPN for staying up to date with all of your footballing needs. You can enjoy in-depth team and region news coverage, including live game visualisation, match commentary, team tracking, detailed fixtures, league tables and much more. With this application, you can be in-the-know and updated whilst you’re on the move, all from your Nokia N8 mobile phone.

Whilst this application is decent, it definitely needs an update to fix a few bugs and to give it a few UI enhancements – with a few updates, this application would be potentially great. Hopefully we will see such updates in the coming weeks – but for now, it gives you the information you need (if you’re a Premier League fan at least).

Football

For everything else that the ESPNsoccernet app doesn’t cover, or even if you think that the app is below par and not what you want, check out this application. It pulls data from the Football.co.uk website and puts it into a format that you can easily read on your Nokia N8 device.

The website covers football news from the Premier League, Champions League, Series A, La Liga and much more. Keep up to date with all of the goings on in football around the world – it’s great to be connected to all of your football needs whilst on the move.

Cricket

The ECB Cricket application allows you to keep up to date with all of the live cricket scores, news and photos whilst on the move. You even get ball-by-ball scores and full scorecards from all England tests and one-day internationals at home and abroad – this includes the Ashes and ICC Cricket World Cup, along with other country matches and every international game played across the globe.

This application isn’t just for England fans, it’s for fans of any team in any part of the world and offers you world cricket news stories and photo galleries to go along with them. A great application if you’re a fan of cricket.

Hockey – NHL

If you’re a fan of hockey, and yes there are many people out there that are, then this is an application you will need on your Nokia N8. The sport, which is seemingly exclusive to America, is in fact pretty lucrative around the world such as in countries as Sweden. This application offers you scores, stats, ice trackers and play-by-play, game photos, schedules, standings and news – all from your mobile phone. There is even an NHL Twitter feed and player profiles to keep you up-to-date and in-the-know with your favourite players. Even add your favourite team on the application to track their progress.
