[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - With the World Cup almost upon us, a new iPhone app, Total Football 2010 has launched a revolution in how football fans experience the game. The iPhone and iPod touch app graphically displays a huge range of match events including every pass, shot, tackle, clearance and foul for all 64 games in South Africa this summer. At the touch of a button, fans can compare players' performances against each other and see which player's are having greatest influence on the game, Total Football 2010 enables fans to analyse a match from a completely new perspective.
As described by 'joolsLondon' in his App Store review: "Just a fabulous app. A staggering amount of data, but presented with beautiful, clear visualisations. No longer do you have to put up with the TV pundits droning on with the same old dull comments, this app lets you decide for yourself what is happening in a game." At time of writing, 100% of reviewers have given it a 5* rating.
Best of all, the app includes Facebook and Twitter integration enabling users to share images and insights generated in the app across their social networks.
Total Football's developer, Colm McMullan said, "This is the first World Cup of the digital age. Facebook and Twitter only launched after the 2006 tournament and the iPhone wasn't announced until 2007. Total Football 2010 is the ultimate app for this time, making use of these incredibly popular services to enrich football fan's experience of the tournament. By opening up access to this level of detail live during every game, fans won't have to wait on the cherry picked facts and stats they get on TV and they'll have facts and stats to back up their football arguments with their mates!"
The app comes bundled with the final 8 games of the 2006 World Cup for users to explore. When the 2010 tournament kicks off on June 11th, information for all match events (including the innovative player influence infographic) will be available live throughout every game.
