A Master Stroke by Intel AppUp - CrickInfo

As a self confessed cricket addict, I needed to keep a tab on the happenings in the cricket world each and every day of my life. But in this fast paced competitive corporate era that we live in, this was seldom possible for me. And even when I did manage to catch up with the matches, there were still so many of them (read county club cricket, domestic cricket, etc) that the sports channels refused to air live.

These problems introduced me to the site Cricinfo – A site that helped me stay connected to My Love – Cricket - 24*7. It was great as it helped me keep an eye on the scores plus also providing interesting statistical data and exclusive news coverage from all across the cricketing globe.

 A few days back while checking the various apps released by the Intel AppUp store, I stumbled upon an app CrickInfo and thought of giving it a try.

CricKinfo - An App from Intel AppUp center for cricket freaks like me!

And let me tell you, if you are a cricket enthusiast and a Cricinfo site fan too then this app is just for you! A two tab layout, it gives you instant access to Live Scores and news  updates at the tip of your hands. It scores high on the neat organization and is very easy to maneuver. It is quite simple in layout but a wonderful app nevertheless!

My Verdict

In one line, it is a compact Cricinfo designed specifically for cricket fans! Now keeping track of the in-depth coverage of the game including ball-by-ball commentary, breaking news and statiscal data just got so much easier! And what’s more it’s free. All you need to do is visit the site – Intel AppUp Center – and get this app today!

Having chosen one app, I would also like to add that for the real cricketing fan, nothing is enough. And am sure there are many many more apps that need to be explored by me in the Intel AppUp center. But for now, let me cheer for Intel that has just bowled me over with their master stroke called CrickInfo!
