BLACK Cats fans can get the latest news on Sunderland AFC in the palm of their hands – and it will cost them nothing.
The Sunderland Echo’s new free football app is now available on Android and iPhone systems.
As well as the up-to-the-minute news there will be live, rolling match commentary on every game Martin O’Neill’s men play, as well as results and player profiles.
Users will get the latest news from our two dedicated Sunderland writers, Graeme Anderson and Chris Young, who will be providing their expert opinions daily.
Launching the app, Echo editor Rob Lawson said: “We know how much it means for Sunderland fans to be up-to-date with latest goings on at the club.
“The football app has some great features which will keep you in the loop, whether it is about new signings, injury news or transfer rumours.
“There are also videos and live match commentaries as well as a full results service, all of which can be accessed while on the move.
“What’s more, it’s completely free to download straight to your iPhone or Android handset.”
The app is ideal for following the Euro 2012 tournament in Poland and Ukraine, with a full results service on offer.
Stats and league tables are also available, as well as a link to social networking sites Twitter and Facebook where you can chat about the latest goings-on in the football world.
Local non-league football news is another feature of the app, for those who want to keep abreast of the grassroots game.
