APP OF THE DAY: Official NRL 2012

The full game and news guide for NRL fans

Official NRL 2012
Cost: Free | Developer:Telstra Corporation | Platform:iOS | Version 3.0| 16.5MB | 4.0+

The 2012 NRL season has officially kicked off symbolising the start of another year of big hits, quick plays, the biff, and hopefully a Broncos premiership.

The Official NRL 2012 app is the tool to stay up to date with everything to do with the competition, especially when away from a television.

After selecting your favourite team, the app gives you access to all the necessities:

  • Latest NRL news
  • Team lists – This also includes brief player profiles which contain recent new in terms of the players’ careers and personal life.
  • Match preview
  • Live scores
  • Ladder
  • Team and player stats
  • Links to the Toyota NRL Dream Team and Bundaberg NRL Tipping competitions

Although the app is free, those who want videos on-demand and live match-day radio are able to purchase a 31-day service for $1.99 that enables these features.

General operation is very smooth, and load times are exceptionally quick. Scrolling can become an occasional hassle, though: if you tap a link as you begin to scroll, it sometimes does not move, assuming that you will follow the link.

Despite being elaborate, I feel that the app takes away a lot of the simplicity present in Sportsmate Mobile’s 2011 “NRL Rugby League Live” app. The predecessor was just as comprehensive, although featured a clearer interface, and was ad-free.

Pros: Free, packed with all the necessities, smooth operation and responsiveness.

Cons: Advertisements are integrated and waste interface space, scrolling can become hassle.

Verdict: The rugby fans guide and news source for the 2012 NRL season.
