The Official RWC 2011 app allows you to follow the Rugby World Cup 2011 tournament on your BlackBerry. Besides the latest news and standings, the application offers live Rugby World Cup coverage.
Using the RWC 2011 app is very straightforward thanks to a well organized menu navigation system. There are separate tabs for News, Tournament information, a Match Centre (where you'll find all the live coverage), Video and a Fan Zone.
The RWC 2011 app has enough information to satisfy even the most enthusiastic rugby fan. News is updated very regularly and can be filtered by team. The Tournament section is loaded with stats and player profiles for all teams. There's lots of video highlights from this year's tournament as well as past World Cups.
The Match Centre is the place to go to in the RWC 2011 app if you can't get to watch World Cup matches on TV. Besides offering live text commentary of every match, this area of the app gives all time head-to-head stats, plus details of recent matches between the teams in question.
It's worth mentioning the fan zone in the RWC 2011 app. There are some interesting features, such as a guide to the stadiums, details of what's on in New Zealand, and a section where you can submit questions for professional rugby players to answer, which they do via video clips.
Another nice thing about the Official RWC 2011 app is that it detects your location and adjusts all fixture times to your local time zone, saving you from having to calculate time differences yourself.
The Official RWC 2011 app is generally very slick and looks great (if you don't mind seeing lots of adverts for the sponsor). However, for some reason there are no player photos on some of the team profile pages. Also, you should bear in mind that you'll need an internet connection in order to see anything on the RWC 2011 app.
If you're interested in following this year's tournament, the RWC 2011 app makes for a great pocket-sized companion.
