Nokia releases Goal.com 2012 Finals app for Lumia Windows Phones

WP Central

Another day, another exclusive app from Nokia available to all Lumia owners. Today, the Finnish company released Goal.com 2012 Finals. The app is a must have for those who watch soccer...errr...football as it will deliver "breaking news, exclusive interviews, video clips, team profiles, player profiles and 'Road to Euro 2012' which looks back at how each nation qualified for the tournament".

Goal.com 2012

The app has multiple Live Tile support as you can pin your team to your Start screen with updates reflected on the tile (under Settings). It can even remind you when a match is about to start which seems extremely convenient to us.

Overall, the app is smooth and nicely laid out and while we not huge football fans here in the States we can see many of our European friends being thrilled with another great Nokia release.

Pick up Goal.com 2012 Finals for your Nokia Lumia device here in the Marketplace.

Nokia releases Goal.com 2012 Finals app for Lumia Windows Phones

I know the NHL playoffs could end tonight, but the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp) has a really nice Hockey app - Hockey Night in Canada. I dont know if its available outside of Canada though.

Daniel, it's definitely 'footy' :D

Nokia - you're awesome, using a hack to get this on my Omnia7 (but I've enticed 3 people to buy Nokia 800's and a 710! Plus my next WinPho? Nokia w/Apollo!)

Because of an app? Get over it! HTC does not suck, at least they have a sound enhancement app that Nokia or any other OEM still hasn't created.

No because of all the apps not available for htc.
Ok, I would love the titan 2, the camera is great, but I'd prefer nokia.

Lol!  Well, for the record, Symbian devices are still outselling all WP devices combined :) 
 
Nonetheless, it is Nokia that has put Window Phone on the map - moreso than Microsoft, Samsung, HTC, and LG combined! 
 
But finally, Nokia has a beautiful OS in Windows Phone that they can couple with their great looking devices.

Yeah it does really sucks, coz every single country in the world plays football (soccer) including the US, oh also they have a "world cup", but only NHL fans knows what's LA Kings (I had to Bing it)... So yeah soccer do suck!

You're not missing much. The UEFA/Orange app is full of commercial bullstuff, while the goal.com simply sticks to the point.

That's not an official app, has nothing to do with UEFA as they rightfully point out in the app info.

The Goal.com is really superb, must say, but I don't see why Nokia should get any credit for that!

It's absolutely right. I had HTC Surround, and they did nothing good for it. So I switched to Nokia and loving it. Shame on HTC and Sammy for ignoring us. They will not get any more money from me.

not a big fan of soccer but to each their own now when nokia secures me a gamefly app thats when ill jump for joy :D as an avid gamer i care more about getting my stuff on time and being able to easily mess with my queue rather than adding effects to photos and games on my phone :D but thats just me all you soccer fans enjoy :p
