Top 5 Football Apps


Football Manager

Football Manager has long been an essential game for football fans to have on their laptops or PCs, but more recently a handheld app has been developed.

The original game has gone from strength to strength and its handheld offering is no different.

Manage a multitude of clubs to league and European glory on the bus to work or sitting in the park; it’s one of the must-have apps for true football fanatics.

You know when you try to please your significant other by going shopping on a Saturday only to realise your mistake and end up stranded in football’s no-mans-land, without any idea of the important scores of the day? Well make those mistakes no more!

The Livescore app is basically a conditioned version of the popular football scores website and is essential for knowing your team’s score when other things in life prevent you from getting to follow the game live.


It’s 2.45 on a Saturday afternoon and you’re still stuck out with your partner shopping. Worse still, there’s no bookmakers around and you feel today would have been the day that five-team-accumulator would strike gold.

Fear not, the Coral App has arrived to save your betting day. While betting on football is popular and Coral can offer plenty of different betting opportunities, it is not everything.

The Coral App makes betting easy with smooth controls, easy click options and a whole host of betting categories in the palm of your hand.

ESPN Goals

Similar to Livescore App in the sense that following the goals as they happen is the mission statement from ESPN’s app, but if you really can’t wait to actually see the goal then ESPN is your app.

Soon after each Premier League goal is scored this app lets you view the strike and with a whole host of stats and a full fixture list too the ESPN Goals app is certainly value for money.

You Are The Ref

Ever fancied yourself as a Howard Webb or Mark Clattenburg? We all have opinions on what happens on the pitch and most of the time we reckon we could do a better job than the man in black – well here’s our chance.

The You Are The Ref app has spawned from the classic book featuring scenarios and Paul Trevillion’s magnificent artwork and it could prove a popular addition to the App Store.

Whether you’re a budding man-in-the-middle or you just want to prove to friends that you could ref just as well as Clattenburg, You Are The Ref offers plenty of scenarios to get your teeth (and whistle) stuck into.
