To get live updates when goals are scored in the matches I’ve had a bet in I use the mobile app from FlashScore.com. The app’s available for iPhone/iPad and Android devices and alerts are issued very soon after each goal is scored.
When you open the app on your mobile you get greeted with a list of the days matches. The top section shows matches from leagues and cups included within your “Favourite Competitions”, followed by other Leagues in alphabetical order.
My screen shots are from an iPhone, so things may look slightly different if you’re using an iPad or Android device.
You can add or remove leagues or cups from your list of favourites, by tapping on the option under the list of matches for that competition.
Click on the star to the left of any match you wish to track and it will get added to your list of games to receive updates for.
Then when any goals are scored in the match, you’ll receive an alert on your device.
By swiping on the alert it’ll load the app and show you more details about who scored the goal.
It also keeps you up-to-date wit any substitutions, bookings and sending offs.
Click the Stats tab to see a breakdown of ball possession, goal attempts, free kicks, corners, offsides, throw-ins, saves, total and completed passes.
The Lineups tab shows the teams formations and starting lineups, together with substitutions, goal scorers, bookings and sending offs.
The app is free and is funded by displaying bookmaker free bet and odds banners. It also provides updates for a number of other sports, including Tennis, Cricket, Golf, Snooker, Motorsports, Darts and Horse Racing.
