The top 10 World Cup iPhone apps

Enjoy the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa with your trusty iPhone this June

The much anticipated 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa kicks off in less than 90 days, and while some may be making the trek to see the games live (or scabbing their mate's new plasma), everybody else will be able to enjoy the games from any part of the world with a barrage of iPhone apps tailored to soccer lovers worldwide.
We've rounded up the best iPhone World Cup apps to keep you ahead of the world game.

World Cup Countdown

Price: Free

For the fanatics on the edges of their seats, World Cup Countdown counts down the days, minutes, hours, and seconds until the kick off of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The app acts as a digital clock while counting down the days, with the simple interface displaying the time and date below South African scenery. Overriding the iPhone’s auto-lock setting to stop it going into sleep mode, while the phone is docked the app can let it act as a somewhat fancy timepiece. When you get bored of watching time tick away, clicking the pictures will bring up either more info on the image or a video, acting like a virtual tour guide of South Africa. Images are displayed for 12 or 24 hour intervals, but the user can choose to change the background. Sick of sitting lion? Try standing elephant! If you find yourself losing count of the days (or even seconds) until the soccer main event comes around, you can pick up World Cup Countdown at the App Store now for free.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
