Features & Use
The summer break is a time of hardship for any football fan. Although from time to time friendly games will be held, in comparison to the domestic league or the Champions League they're not quite able to match the spark. As large as the scene is however, there are quite often surprises including the active transfer market, but for the true die-hard fan there's nothing quite like scores and stats and information to pass the off-season.
It is always important to prepare for the upcoming football season and build an impressive portfolio of relevant applications and information to keep you informed and up to speed. Our current test candidate aims to offer the latest information about ongoing games. With this app you can see that the developer SportyTrader fulfilled this task very well. There is always current results and even in the heated moments of the last day of the season there were no significant and annoying errors or delays.
On the other hand, however, one must also note that the functionality of the application lags behind that of some of its competitors. For example, there is no scope for the latest news from the field of football. While there is, in addition to football, also the sports of basketball and tennis in the app, on the whole, this broader field of sports cannot compensate for the lack of scope of functions in each one. But more on that later.
In addition to the current material, Livescore Football Tennis offers betting projections for the respective matches. Although the feature is interesting for gamblers, it's not all that useful for most users. Of course it is nice to know that in the game of X against Y, there is a high rate, but as an avid football fan you know that anyway. Livescore Football Tennis toes the fine line between nice information and pure advertising here, but all things considered, at the very least it still provides additional information for discussions about your favorite teams.
The application suffers at the hands of some very strong competition. The goal alert in Livescore Football Tennis works very well and functions properly. Favorites are also selectable so you can build an individualized experience in the app. But the simple enumeration of the highlights of a game is not enough for a very good rating in this field. A comprehensive game report is required. Ideally with pre- and post-event reporting. Because many football fans want to know information around the clock: before the game, during the game and after the game.
Livescore Football Tennis is a good application in the end. The application is certainly worth a look in any case – especially considering it's free. But in a field with powerful competitors it's perhaps not enough to really challenge them, particularly because of the lack of a news section, a detailed ticker and follow-up reporting.
Screen & Controls
Livescore Football Tennis is unfortunately somewhat stale in terms of display and design. The entire presentation is not only poorly adapted to the operating system, but control via gestures is missing altogether. Here there is an opportunity though. While a redesign is urgently needed, there's a good foundation here that could become very good with a few additions.
Speed & Stability
From time to time in the testing period Livescore Football Tennis responded a little slowly, but the overall impression is very good and stable.
Livescore Football Tennis is free in the Play Store. Given a few additions and subtractions this app could be a winner, but for now it only gets even odds.
