With the FIFA World Cup 2010 commencing on June 11th, TUAW has been receiving a lot of info about iPhone apps for the event, including the indie effort Total Football 2010 which we'll be checking out soon. One of the most intriguing tips came from veteran mobile developer Handmark, which has teamed with huge soccer site Goal.com on a new app.
Any of the articles can be emailed to friends or shared through Twitter or Facebook. If you're only interested in seeing how your team is doing, you can customize the app to focus on specific news feeds. You don't need to have a full-time Internet connection either; there's an offline reading mode so you can catch up on info while you're taking that long airplane flight to South Africa to cheer on your team.
The Goal.com Mobile app is available in 9 languages -- English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Turkish, and Indonesian. Time for football!
