Rugby Arena – The 2011 World Cup Guide (Unofficial) ($0.99) by Alexandru Halmagean is the ultimate app for rugby fans. This guide to the Rugby World Cup 2011 has a complete schedule, live scores, and boards. It contains detailed team and player information as well as the latest rugby news and videos. You’ll be well-prepared for the RWC if you have this app!
Rugby Arena also contains a gallery of videos that will be continually updated with game highlights and more. Even now, before the matches begin, there are already tons of videos for your enjoyment. See videos of your favorite players, funny commercials, anthems, and more.
Learn about past tournaments by tapping “History”. Do you know who won in 1987? It was New Zealand, with France taking second and Wales third. I also learned that South Africa was unable to compete because of the international sports boycott due to apartheid. And the USSR refused to compete on political grounds.
Are you attending any of the matches? Read profiles on all twelve host venues and even get directions and maps right to the arenas.
The app’s user interface is quite nice and it’s very easy to navigate. This is simply a must-have app for rugby fans around the world.
Just can’t get enough rugby? There is a little game included in the app called Logic Rugby. An update coming soon will bring another game, Rugby Trivia. The update will also include support for more languages.
To learn more about the app, you can check out their YouTube video.
As the updates roll in and the RWC 2011 gets closer, the price will go up. So if you don’t win it, you’ll want to pick it up before the price increase. I’ve got five promo codes to give away, and I’m going to give them to the five biggest rugby fans. Show me your rugby love in the comments below. Tell me which team is your favorite. Bonus points if you can guess which AppAdvice staffer played rugby in high school. Contest ends Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. EDT.
