If you're following this year's Wimbledon Championship and you have an iPhone then Wimbledon is the app to have!
This official Wimbledon app is a great companion for the tournament, bringing all the latest news, scores and fixtures from the grand slam tennis event. The user interface within the program is neat and well organized. The main interface consists of a series of icons representing all the different sections of the Wimbledon app.
The News section in Wimbledon lists the top stories of the day and clicking a headline will launch the article in its entirety. The stories are generally very well-written and interesting, with many interviews and feature-style articles thrown in for good measure. It's annoying that there is no pinch-to-zoom feature, although you can increase the text size using the buttons provided.
You can check live scores within the app, viewing a list of the state of play in all of the matches in progress, which updates every 30 seconds. You can also view the results of all the matches that have been completed already.
Get to the heart of the action
The Video section contains some nice clips of brief match highlights and summaries, although we're yearning for more content here. Hopefully this will get rectified as the tournament hots up, though.
If you want to follow Wimbledon live then head for the Radio Wimbledon section where you can listen to live commentary from Centre Court or Court No.1, as well as keeping up with the other matches on the main station.
There's lots more stuff in the Wimbledon app too, including the schedule of play, Twitter feeds from tennis stars and pundits, player biographies, photos and spectator guides.
The official Wimbledon app offers a free and simple way to stay right up-to-date with the latest from the All England Club.
