Another day, another football (soccer) application for BlackBerry 10. This time it's Newcastle United Football Club which will please the hundreds of thousands of fans. We recently showed you the Chelsea FC app and this one is pretty much identical which makes me think that a certain developer is working for the clubs.
The application is packed full of features. Initially you will be presented with the home screen which is split into three sections - Latest News, Latest Videos and Latest Highlights. If you touch the Home tab at the bottom of the display there are plenty of extra features.
News is pretty straight forward. You get an image at the top followed by the news story. At the base of the screen is a share tab which gives you the options to share via BBM, Twitter or Facebook. You can swipe to the left to move onto the next news story which is easier than using the arrows either side of the photo.
Next up we have 'Match' and this is where you will see all the fixtures and results for Newcastle's games. One great feature here is that you can add them to your calendar which I think is rather swish.
Videos are up next and these are free to watch. There is however a subscription service you can sign up for which will provide you with highlights of every game plus player interviews.
We then have the 'Live' section which until the season starts won't show anything but it will be updated every minute or so with a commentary of the match. Last but not least is the 'More' tab. Here you can set up the subscription, buy tickets (through an external source), share the app and even view a selection of Newcastle wallpapers for your BlackBerry.
