Quick Look – World Cup Countdown 2010 for iPad

The World Cup is my absolute favorite sports event; which is saying quite a bit because I’m a huge sports fan across the board.  So an iPad app with World Cup in its title will always get at least a look from me – especially as matches begin less than 100 days from now.

World Cup Countdown 2010 is the perfect app for keeping up on the news and information on the upcoming 2010 World Cup in South Africa. If you are a fan of soccer like I am then you’re probably eagerly anticipating the World Cup this summer. Even if you’re not a huge soccer fan it’s still exciting to be able to root on your country while competing on the worlds largest stage in the worlds most popular sport.
