Free WorldCup 2010 app - Get it now for your BlackBerry

The FIFA 2010 WorldCup is set to kick off on June 11th in South Africa, and if you are looking to keep up with all the action, you'll certainly want to have grab the app that was released by the folks over at S42 and ZonaBlackBerry. The app itself looks great on your device and is available in both Spanish and English. With access to live score updates, calendar integration and team statistics, you'll want to have this on hand just to ensure you don't miss anything. Storm users - yes the app will work, but you may have issues navigating as it was designed without a touchscreen UI.

For people having issues with the language shown in the app, within the app press the MENU Button > Configuracion > in "Seleccione su idioma" pick Ingles, then press "Guardar"... the app will tell you that it needs to close the app to take the new settings. When you open it again it should be in English.

Free WorldCup 2010 app - Get it now for your BlackBerry

80 Comments

it is only one installation file, it detects your current language settings on your BlackBerry and the app uses the same one as you do on your device.

blog article says

"Storm users - yes the app will work, but you may have issues navigating as it was designed with a touchscreen UI."

So, does that mean that Storm owners will have issues, or non-Storm owners will have issues?

Bla1ze I know its a weird way to get a hold of u but I lost ur number mine is the same my pin is 3210D552 add me please

rooting for Italy. I am italian so you know. I am a fan of great football so I hope this World Cup will be just as good as previous ones. It will be very hard to repeat but right now Italy is flying under the radar and that's how we like it lol. I do have the 9700 and it works for it. Although I cant seem to change my timezone

Rooting for Italy and being a fan of great football is an oxymoron. Italy plays dirty and dishonest football. They cheated their way to the title last time around.

Everyone has their own opinion. But tell me how did they cheat their way to the title? Winning a hard fought semi-final against Germany in extra time where Buffon made a couple of incrdible saves to keep Italy in the game? Or how about beating France in the final on penalties? Our goal scored in regular time was a great header off a corner, while France's goal was on a penalty kick where on the replay you can see the italian defender didnt even tough the France forward. Yeah we really cheated our way through to the title. Great observation

Initially, it seems to be in Spanish, if you check the settings, even if its says "english", select it again and click save. You'll be prompted about closing the app for the new settings to take affect. Go back in and the teams will be in English.

Now if I can just block the ads...

I dream, that some day Canada will qualify for the world cup.....or at least be added into FIFA video games.. hahah

mine is in Spanish although it says English is selected as language. This will be hard since I dont know Spanish. oh well. ill figure it out i spose.

Can someone please tell me what do I have to do, in order to get this on my Bold 9000?

I downloaded the link, and I opened up DM. Clicked on App loader and it's saying that the file doesn't exist/my device doesn't recognize it.

Appreciate it.

Nope, deleted it.
The spanish is annoying me and if I want to know the results then I'll check the internet and if I want to see dates for matches then I'll use one of about 20 free pullouts from the national newspapers
ALL in ENGLISH not spanish lol shame as this would be a great app but what is up with the language prob?

it looks great but parts of it are in English while others are in Spanish. workable but annoying. hope for an update.

Hi i´m a Rafael from s42.com.ve team, we are working in a new release to solve the compatibility problem with language and with some S.O.

Thanks for your comments, hope you enjoy the application

when you open it again it should be in English.

@mikey_D you need to open the link on your BB browser and install it . it should prompt you to install if you did it right.

I just successfully installed it.

Once u open the app, hit the bb button. than go to settings and click english. Close the app. And re open it. And it should work.

doesn't work at all well on the storm 2 9520. Not worth it unless it gets updated for touchscreen use.

After install, go to options > applications, highlight the app, push menu & disable compatibility mode. This is what I always do in case an app was running in non touch screen mode (has blue border around it). I hope that helps. :)

could it be an OS issue? which OS are you using? i'm on a hybrid, btw, but it's based on the latest .607 OS from Verizon.

installed on 9700 with os 5.0.0.442

installs fine when i open app i click accept then when i select open nothing happens it just sits on this screen

tried reboot and allow all permissions still no good

I'm not fluent in Spanish and this app is definitely more catered to the Spanish-literate than English. It's also not wholly compatible with the Storm and it freezes.

Internet will be just fine for checking updates for the World Cup.

Hey bla1ze I have been trying to get in touch with u but lost ur # mine is still the same my pin is 3210D552 add me

this is a venezuelan app, but as you may have read the developers read crackberry and are working on some bugfixes. we venezuelans follow the world cup closely, although our team is far away from qualifying :(

no good aplication not support for storm /

i prefeir m.yahoo.com better result and nice statics...

got the download to work thanks to the link above to their website.

in compatability mode it works but with a keyboard visible on my storm 2

when i disable compatability mode it opens without the keyboard but the screen is non responsive.

hope the bugs get worked through for the storm cos this could be a great app

Out of memory, verification errors, and a bunch of other things. Guess I'll be waiting for a more stable app as this is a disaster. FAIL.

This is a nice Venezuelan app, but there are a couple more Spanish apps that people may prefer. Right there on AppWorld (Categories => Sports => Football), you can find a Televisa (Mexico) app and a Univision (USA) app.

it did install on my bold flawlesly didn't had to do nothing,i just cant find the event calendar. Any help please?
