    Follow the score

    We round up the very best apps to help you keep track of the mega-sporting events happening this year.

    Whether you're an avid cricket fan and can't wait to see the Proteas taking on England in the next ODI, or have Super Rugby fixtures already mapped out in your calendar, one thing's for sure: you won't be at a loss for sporting events to follow this year. 

    Luckily, your smart phone is with you every step of the way. Here are the best apps to keep you in the loop 24/7. Spouses: you have been warned!

    App advantage

    One of our favourites is the Vodacom Rugby App. Not only does it cover every major event in the South African rugby calendar, but there is also a host of functions that will keep rugga-lovers happy. Along with logs, pics and profiles of players, the app lets you compare teams and also enjoy live commentary. 

    And it's no surprise that this is top of our list, as the Vodacom Rugby App won Best Use of Digital Communication at the SA Sports Industry Awards in 2015 and Best Mobile application at the New Generation Social & Digital Media Awards in 2014. Read more and download the Vodacom Rugby App here:

    Still in rugby mode, the new Vodacom All Out Rugby App offers news, match previews, reports and interviews. On the interactive side, you can enjoy games and videos too.

    And if you're a Blue Bulls fan, you probably already have the Blue Bulls Rugby App, which provides fixtures, results, commentary and stats to keep you in the game. The Fans' Man of the Match is a fun feature.


    Football fans have a host of cool apps to choose from. Forza Football offers news, schedules and the opportunity to interact with an online community. Select your favourite team and get notifications on goals and line-ups. Download it here on iTunes and here for Android.

    Talk the sport

    From EPL to cricket, rugby and boxing, motorsport and more, TalkSport will keep any sports fanatic delighted. News, fixtures, scores and results are at your fingertips. The live commentary is a huge bonus.
