    I downloaded the vuvuzela app from virtual vuvuzela.com and have enjoyed it. Each of the world cup teams has their own vuvuzela.

    WOW! There are a lot of these apps that I like (iSouth Africa 2010, 100 Best Soccer Goals and Best Football Goal Videos), I will start downloading them right away!

    Who are we kidding? I just happen to be an Indian living in the US with flippant interest in soccer, *nobody* here cares about the World Cup or even know it exists!

    I bet 88% or more of India does not know or care and you better believe it. Soccer is big, only in Europe, and South America, and nothing is about to change it.

    The Olympics is the only true WORLD event, and yes, even India, a no-show in most sport that is not Cricket cares :)

    Hi, After comparing some WorldCup apps, I decided to get an app called “SouthAfrica-Fan.com” which seems to have everything you need to know, including YouTube Videos, Push Notifications and Facebook Connect. I would also recommend it. : )

    Ramesh, you have to be kidding. Football is massive worldwide not just europe and south america! Your country is definately in the minority. I can only think of India with no real interest in football. Most Asian countries are fantical, all over se asia and obviously north east. Tge middle east, and pretty much everywhere else have a real interest. Your deluded if you think otherwise.

    I have made a very big research and comparison of the world cup world cup for iphone. and believe me, the best one is:
    http://iphone-app-world-cup.ahorrecomparando.com/world-cup.php

    (Wcup Draw) -itunes store.

    It is very simple.
    gives you the local time of the matches.
    save you the results that you type.
    and predict the results for finals, semifinals, and quarters.

    i recomend

    Pretty good selection of apps here but have my own recommendation to make on behalf of Continental Tyres…

    They have a similar score prediction app like number 20 in that list, but this one is completely free. As well as the ability to predict scores (and see how it affects the tables and fixtures as a result), social sharing on Facebook and Twitter, users can also enter themselves into competitions for official World Cup match balls and a holiday to South Africa.

    Definitely worth checking out: http://www.whowillwintheworldcup.co.uk/

    Check out this new iPhone app. It’s really cool. It allows you to find fellow fans of the world cup and also shows you where you can watch the games (bars, cafes, etc) all over the world. Very cool. Gives an ever-changing, ever-updating map.
