World Cup 2011 – Cricket Companion on Your Smartphones
Guest Post by Ammar Faheem
At the last World Cup four years back, it was difficult to keep track of the latest cricket happenings while you were at work or busy with anything outside. Life has changed remarkably over the past few years, especially with the increasing uptake of smartphones and the way third party applications have been accommodated by mobile phone manufacturers across the globe.
Now, you can keep a track of the latest match scores (LIVE!), see history of what happened in previous matches and also have a look at what is to come next in action. We’re talking about an application developed locally in Pakistan by a company called Tricast Media, Cricket Companion, that has made the nation proud with several thousand downloads worldwide.
If you’re running a Nokia phone, like we were while testing the Nokia C7, download the application from the Ovi Store and have a feel of the application for yourself. Standard GPRS/EDGE rates will apply for using the app if you’re not on WiFi.
A brief list of the features available is as follows:
- Current Matches
- Recent Matches
- Cricket Genius
We’re sharing it here so all of you cricket lovers can stay updated and not miss out on a single moment of the world cup 2011! Apart from the Ovi Store (Nokia), the application is also available for the iPhone and over WAP for other users.
The application can be downloaded directly from your handset’s browser by visiting http://m.crick.cc
