      There's really only one World Cup app and it's the ESPN app. There's others, but nothing is worth even downloading. I'm upset with ESPN, because they are charging for the full version, which allows you to listen to the games live. They are already making hand over fist, and each listener they get, produces that much more revenue, with ads, and everything else. More FREE Apps!

      Would definitely suggest a slightly different World Cup app for 2010 - DrinkingWorldCup. An awesome app and website that serves real-time drinking game actions based on the activity on the pitch.

The current iteration is a tad sluggish on older iPhones, but the dev has ironed out the bugs with the next update and it's easily the sleekest and most informative app I've found so far.
