Being a football fan (or soccer as non-Brits call it), I can recommend a FREE app for the iPhone / iPod Touch called iFooty (at this point I’d like to publicly thank Elaine Giles for finding the app).

iFooty is described as a must-have for any fan of the beautiful game. Simply put, it provides a user-friendly way to navigate the plethora of information that is stored on the BBC’s website relating to English and Scottish teams (it currently supports English Premiership, Championship and League 1 and 2 along with Scottish Premier League).

The first time the app is run, the user is presented with a list of leagues:

Clicking on a league displays the current table for that league:

Clicking on a team provides access to results, minute-by-minute match reports, latest news and fixtures for the selected team:

Although iFooty is a great little app, there are a couple of enhancements that I’d like to see:

An alphabetical list of teams would enable the user to quickly select a team, rather than having to know which league/division the team is in and their current league position (assuming you are looking for a team other than the one you support).

The ability to display all the results for the current day – last Saturday, as the final whistles went around the country, I had to load up the BBC Sports website in Safari to find out all the scores.
