ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 #CWC15 – Mobile Apps Review (Android)

The very exciting, anticipated event of the cricketing world — ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 #CWC15 — is here. We are all pumped up and looking forward to mess our routines for the game (speaking on behalf of the people on the other wide of the globe; i.e. Pakistan).

I’ve come across few mobile apps that I found on the Google Play store and tried them out myself. Here are my comments on each one of them.

Context

  • Match Fixtures in general
  • My Selected Team Match Fixtures in particular
  • Live match Scores
  • News & Multimedia (Pictures/Match Highlights etc)
