Fanatix football app

Here are it's features and why we think it's currently the best football app:
  • Twitter Tracker - It has a Twitter tracker so you can follow you favorite footballers and see what everyone is tweeting about. Keep in touch with all the pre-game banter, in-game chat and post-match reaction.

  • Latest Scores - In our opinion, a must for any football app is to have a really good live scores feature. Fanatix app allows you to view all the latest scores, from all over the world, up to the minute and straight to your device.

  • Goal Alerts - Free goal alerts on your iPhone or iPod the moment they hit the back of the net. Can prove incredibly addictive on weekends when you are at one game and desperately want to know what’s happening at another.

  • In Game Chat - As well as the wonderful goal alert system you can also enjoy all the chat, discussions, debates that will no doubt be going on before, during and after the big game
