Get up-to-date news from Brazil

The world is gripped with World Cup fever right now, and — of course — there’s a simple way to keep up with all of the action on your smartphone. The tournament’s FIFA Official App provides users with a great deal of background information on the teams, as well as live updates from the World Cup stadiums. Users can set their favorite team to get more personalized updates, check standings and catch up on highlights from the day’s games.

You aren’t able to watch video during games, but you can follow the action with live play-by-play updates. There’s also a ton of Twitter interactivity, so you can contribute your thoughts and see what other people are talking about. As a nice touch, the app also allows users to pick from several languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, German and French. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
