    Hi guys

    Now the new season has properly started I really want a good app that tracks scores properly so I thought we could all discuss the ones on offer. I use 'Soccer Score Centre lite' at the moment but I'm not happy with it - as I can't figure out how to track games taking place (apart my 'my club') and it doesn't lock the screen so my screensaver comes on and then it doesn't refresh properly.

    I know fotmob is a popular app as well - could I seek people's views on that? I'm after an app that shows you all the live games (and when clicking on them you can find out the scorers, the yellow / red cards and so on) and for it to show you the upcoming fixtures as well.

    I'm a championship support - not EPL - so it needs to cover all leagues. Surely that is not too much to ask?!

    I know there have been a few threads on this already - but not since this season has started and frankly the ones on offer appear crap :(

    Fotmob would be best for you mate the leagues it covers are endless and its defo got all English leagues. I use it and find it to be the best one out there, i'm not sure how well it covers the championship I only watch prem league but scores seem to be updated "live". Only problem is there's not enough commentary like the sky sports app for iphone, If sky brought out the score centre app for android i'd defo be using that over any footy app that's out at the mo! Espn scoccer app is awful i wouldn't even bother with it.

    there was a reason I quit fotmob in the end - I can't remember why. I think it was because I could only see the EPL league table - not any others even though I'd ticked Championship and de-ticked EPL. I think it was fotmob anyway...

    Might test it again this weekend though!

    I use fotmob and keep track of EPL, Championship, MLS, and Serie A. Works great for me.

    fotmob is good but too my knowledge i cant see up and coming cup games in the callendar.
    For instance i am a Millwall supporter and know we are playing middlesborough in the cup tomorrow.
    This does not appear on fotmob.

    I might give fotmob another go. Which one do you all use though? There seems to be about 4 different versions on AppBrain!

    ok sounds like fotmob is the most popular on here... will re-download and let you know my findings! ;)

    Like somebody said though - a bit confusing there are so many versions.

    FotMob is pretty good. I am a Luton fan and it even provides score updates from the Blue Square Premier. It doesn't provide as much detail as The Premier League section of the app, but I don't think anybody would expect it to.

    It's very handy for keeping up to date with things at other matches while I am watching the Luton match.

    I'm preferring soccer score centre actually. I've tried fotmob - but looking back at past results shows that fotmob does not show yellow / red cards and substitutions, whereas SSC does show this information. I'm guessing live matches are the same?

    I have to say after using soccer score centre for a while... I've changed to fotmob - it was the only one that would connect last week at the footy...so I've got to used to it and prefer it now.

    I use both Fotmob and Scorecenter, but both have their downsides.

    I primarily use Scorecenter because I can add my favorite leagues and then see all of the live scores on the "my scores" window. It has live commentary, goal notifications (I haven't used them, so I don't know if they work well), lineups, and a timeline of the action. The only downsides are that you can't view fixtures by league, and the news feed only shows English news. The UI isn't too great either. The developer is great at responding to emails though.

    Fotmob is great when you want to quickly look at live scores or league tables, but doesn't go into much depth, other than who scored, yellow cards, etc. The goal notifications are the best around, I think. The news feed for this one is also bad, as you have to switch to the league of the news feed you want to see.

    The Goal.com app is just flat out terrible.

    If anyone knows of a footy app that has a good news feed, please let me know!

    I use Soccer Livescores, gives me all the leagues with the live score, I can filter and only track the leagues I want, I can follow teams I want etc, gives me updates to when a team scores etc, I like it

    Eurosport have there own app ! a friend who has an iphone told me to search for it and it was decent on andriod. It's by far the best app for footy scores i've found, my last post on here reccommends fotmob but since then i've found eurosport better. it force closes sometimes or takes ages to load up which can be really annoying but when its working it's CLASS !!! and has written commentry too.

    other then that theres a BBC footy app which is also pretty good for footy news and also can be used for footy scores, team info and also written commentry. its not BBC official but uses the BBC website for the info.

    hope these help, i've got both and highly reccommend both!!
