PRESS RELEASE: Wasim Akram’s Cricket News app helps cricket fans stay ahead of the game
February 3, 2016
Cricket fans can get the latest news and views on their favourite sport straight to their phone thanks to a new app from one of the game’s greatest legends. Former Pakistani bowler, Wasim Akram has released an innovative free mobile app that will let fans stay ahead of the game.
The Wasim Akram’s Cricket News app, being released for mobile devices and tablets just in time for the 2016 Pakistan Super League tournament, will gather all the latest news, videos and social media updates from all forms of cricket in one place.
It contains 24/7 updates from everyone who matters in the cricketing world, from every player of every team to journalists, columnists, legends and other opinion leaders.
Wasim is the first cricketer from Pakistan to provide his fans with a custom SportRightNow mobile app thanks to a partnership with www.RightNowDigital.com.
He said: “I trialled the app last year and I found it was vital to my work as a pundit.“
“It was definitely the best way to keep up to date with all the inside news on the teams and I’m really excited other cricket fans are now going to enjoy the benefits of this amazing app.
“With Wasim Akram’s Cricket News, fans will no longer have to trawl the web for cricket news because they will be able to read what their favourite papers, websites, blogs and personalities have to say about this amazing sport, all in one place.”
Simon Ryley, director of RightNowDigital, developed the technology after becoming annoyed at how difficult it was to keep up with his favourite football team on a smartphone.
He said: “It seems crazy that sports fans have to do the same daily trawl around the internet looking for updates when we can do that for them and also eliminate the pain of finding and following their favourite players on social media.
“Think of it as being able to walk into a newsagent and look at every single newspaper or magazine, rip out all the bits about cricket, and leave without paying a penny.” Wasim Akram’s Cricket News is free to download on both Android and Apple devices.
