We've seen a few football (soccer) applications for BlackBerry 10 but Goal looks to be the best so far. Available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones - the app will provide you with a whole host of information, not just for the UK and Europe, but for worldwide news too.
With the football season kicking off here in the UK, now is the perfect time for you to download the Goal app - plus It's free, which always goes down well.
Upon opening the app you'll be presented with the latest breaking news but tap the 'Home' tab and there's a bunch of sub categories to dive into. Selecting 'News' will prompt you to select a section and these include Exclusives, English Premiere, Transfers, Rumors, League Cup, Champions League, Europe League, Go Global and Features. Once in the one of choice all the stories are listed with a nice image on the left of the display. Jump into the story for all the details and you will also be given the chance to share the article via BBM, Email. Facebook or Twitter.
The 'Live' section will clearly only be handy on match days but if you can't get to the TV you can at least keep up to date with your favorite team right from your BlackBerry. The 'Standings' section will let you view all the teams positions in the particular leagues and once again you are given the opportunity to choose the league you wish to view.
Last but not least is the 'Favorites' tab and here you can select the teams that you want quick access too. The way this works is that once you have chosen a favorite team they will appear at the top of the list when you select the favorites option, therefore filtering down relevant news for that club.
I don't mind admitting I'm not a football fan, but I do know a great native BlackBerry 10 application when I see one. If you give it a try let us know your thoughts in the comments. I'm sure the developers will welcome any feedback you may have.
