The app has a clean and clear interface and when you open the app you are presented with a homescreen which shows the next cricket match that will be played, where it’s happening and who is playing. Below this there is a snapshot of the latest news from the world of cricket. This app actually covers many more matches than just the Ashes 2013 including many domestic ones making this the perfect app for fans of the sport.


From the menu you can select to see the news, information on the recent series, a schedule of international and domestic games as well as a photo gallery, player stats, rankings and series stats.




You can also access the “Cricket on Twitter” option which gives access to curated tweets from cricketers, experts and people following the Ashes (under the hashtag Ashes). You can link your twitter account with the app and reply to cricketers and enjoy the Ashes with several fellow cricket fans on Twitter whilst you follow the action on the app.


The app is bursting with information so even the biggest cricket fan can get everything they want from it. The Cricbuzz app will cover all the ball by ball action for the Ashes 2013 live, including the practice games. Live radio coverage will be available for the five tests, simply click on the game being played and you can listen to the action live.


There is a notification feature so you get to hear about any important events during the Ashes as they happen and detailed news, statistical coverage and editorial from the games can be accessed through the app too.


Throughout the Ashes 2013 there will be interviews with cricket players to get their thoughts on the games as well as expert analysis and other news stories all about the events of the series, all accessible through the Cricbuzz app.

This has to be one of the most comprehensive cricket apps I have tried with tons of pictures in the galleries, all the stats on your favourite teams and players as well as live commentary and the ability to interact with players and experts on Twitter giving you all the action from every angle.


So if you want to know everything that happens in the upcoming Ashes 2013 including ball by ball details and in-depth interviews and stats this is the app for you.
