Sports Rules & News Brings Global Sports Coverage… and Rules

Two things many mobile users are always in search of are a good sports app and a rule book for their sport of choice. While there are many sports applications for users to select from, most cover only the American “big four”—hockey, (American) football, basketball and baseball. Some people perhaps want to know more about the international ping pong scene, and let’s not forget about the awesomeness to be found in both rugby and soccer. And we swear, some ping pong aficionados can be quite passionate about their sport.

To paraphrase our unnamed arch nemesis, there’s an app for that. XDA Forum Member appzinventors has released an application called Sports Rules & News. The point? To cover the 12 most popular globally recognized sports, and provide users with all their associated rules. The supported sports are: football (soccer), cricket, tennis, Formula 1, golf, rugby, basketball, baseball, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, and hockey.

The news section includes useful information such as scores from various matches, but the meat and potatoes of the application is its built-in rule book. No more Google searching looking for random rules from random sports—simply open the app, and go find it. It’s a dream come true for hardcore fans of any of these sports, especially those who like shouting at referees through televisions because that hockey hit clearly violated Rule 48 and was, in fact, a check to the head.

For more information,visit the original thread and get your sports on.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
