iFooty - App Review

If you are not interested in football (soccer to our US cousins), please do not waste your time reading any further.
iFooty acts as a news aggregator for football results, news and comment. So, whether it's British (Premiership, Scottish Premier, Championship, League One or Two, Blue Square Premier), Spanish (La Liga), Italian (Serie A), German (Bundesliga 1), French (Ligue 1), Dutch (Eredivisie), Portuguese (Primeira), Danish (Superliga), North American, South American, Japanese League 1, or International Matches, iFooty has it covered.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You start off by choosing the league that interests you (and obviously you can change this to your hear content). You can then review the league table as it actually stands, together with recent results for all teams in the league you are interested in. The 'Today' tab shows, as expected, the list of matches being, or to be, played today. By touching any of these matches, you are taken to a live, minute by minute, account of how the match progresses. It's obviously not the same as being there, or even watching on TV but, if those options are unavailable, this is an excellent alternative.
Further tabs enable you to view and enter discussions on individual matches or on more general topics, as well as read full match reports and news on all the teams involved.
In addition there two more useful links:
Firstly there is a link to video highlights of games. These are covered by an in App purchase (Ugh!) but you are allowed free access for a while if you accept the terms and conditions.
Secondly, you can get a list of forthcoming fixtures. iFooty neatly gets around copyright infringement by warning you that the information will be displayed in an external page (such as the BBC, where copyright fees have been paid).

Cost
There is an ad supported free version, or, for a very modest fee, you can make the ads disappear and also have push notification of goals.

Indispensability
How much do you love football? Now you can answer for yourself how indispensable the App is.

Dependability
The App is totally dependable, unlike my team!

Security
There is only local storage of information, so there are no risks.
