Rating: Yes, there’s a Vuvuzela app but not for Android or iPhone
Independent mobile app aggregator, PocketGear, has decided to cash in on international World Cup soccer fever by slashing the price of some of its football associated apps by as much as a quarter (25 per cent). And, just in case you were wondering – yes, there is an app that turns your smartphone into a Vuvuzela horn. It’s called WC Vuvuzela 1.0.
Created by the Indian software company, SIT Mobile, WC Vuvuzela doesn’t actually appear to run either on Android or iPhone handsets which is a welcome relief.
Obviously the app is designed to imitate the sound of the horn which has become synonymous with South African soccer.
To add an extra bit of authenticity, you can select the team which you wish to follow and the onscreen Vuvuzela will sport the colours of that teams national flag.
This app will set you back a mere £0.83. It isn’t discounted unlike its sister program, WC 2010 Fixture 1.0 which has dropped from £1.66 to £1.25.
Given that the six weeks of living hell which is the world cup have already started, that’s a reasonable discount.
The rest of the World Cup themed apps discounted on Pocketgear are mainly games with Soccer Addict by Jamdat dropping from £12.42 to £9.42.
There’s even a piece of freeware available in the shape of Soccer World Cup South Africa diary.
And for those readers who will naturally suggest that GoMo News shouldn’t expect to find Android apps on Pocketgear – they are on sister site Androidgear , instead – SIT’s Vuvuzela isn’t on that site either.
