As much as you might want to, you can’t sit around all day in the middle of the week and just watch sports. The beauty of smartphones is that you can follow your favourite events on the sly, because every major competition generally has an app to go along with it. Wimbledon, which kicked off on Monday, is no exception.
What does it do?
Live scoring, results, match schedules, player profiles — it gives you everything you need to know about the tennis tournament without actually being there in the flesh.
Why do we like it?
No matter if you’re a fan of Djokovic or Nadal or Federer or maybe Mahut, you’ll be able to follow all your favourite tennis stars serve and volley for the next fortnight. You get live coverage on three different radio stations, in addition to tons of video content including competition previews, highlights, interviews with players and so on. The downside? You won’t be rubbing elbows with the royal family out at the London championship.

The best: highlight reels
The worst: no live video feed
