Cricket fans have a glorious summer in store and there is no better way to stay up to date with all the latest from the Ashes, results and news than with the Cricbuzz app. Created by the team from Cricbuzz.com, this app is a veritable one-stop-shop for cricket fans. It’s available for download from the iTunes store for Apple iPhone and iPad, as well as from the Google Play store for Android devices.
It’s unbelievably well-rated, boasting a whopping 4.4 stars on the Google Play site from more than 374,000 reviews, and 4.5 stars on the iTunes store from over 700 reviews.
Certainly from our trial it’s clear this app has the lot cricket-wise. It’s got a huge amount of content and is easy to navigate. It’s also got a tonne of non-core features that make it fun, too.
There is even a special Ashes section, so the app’s the ideal companion for what is a cracking year of cricket.
About Cricbuzz App
The Cricbuzz mobile app offers just about everything you find on the excellent and incredibly comprehensive Cricbuzz.com website.
Live scores and results from Test matches, One Day Internationals, T20 matches, Indian Premier League and many more besides are the core feature of the app.
The other important element is a live news feed with all the latest on matches, teams, squad updates, signings and interviews with officials, coaches and players.
Another nice feature is something called the Smart ‘Match Center’. Basically this means this Match Center screen adapts to the state of the match – Upcoming, Live or Complete.
Match Cards are a good addition. These are described as “contextual snippets” like stats, trivia or weather. Imagine Blowers telling you about the pigeons flying or the flags a-fluttering at Lord’s, only in a 21st century, digital format. Not quite as poetic perhaps, but just as descriptive.
The app has just been redesigned with an enhanced home screen that unifies all the key content of the moment, such as featured matches, news and photos from live matches. You can also look at exactly where the matches are all taking place with the world map.
It’s also bristling with great images and photos from the matches, giving a nice, crisp finish to the app’s appearance.
Cricbuzz Mobile App Features
At the heart of the app are the live scores and ball by ball text commentary so you can follow just about any match that’s being played wherever you happen to be.
You can also tap into live audio commentary – this can be listened to in English and other regional languages.
There are match alerts via push notifications so you don’t miss a ball of the matches you want to follow.
Of course there is a huge amount of news on cricket, but the app is also heavy on editorials and blogs discussing the hot topics of the hour.
There is a schedule of upcoming matches and a list of results from previous games.
Another feature we liked are the player profiles – every stat, from batting average to bowling figures and catches are there at your fingertips.You’ll also find all the latest Test, ODI and T20 rankings for your side.
