7. Score! Classic Goals - free

Score

The App Store is filled with footy games which let you flick and swipe balls into the net with varying degrees of majesty, but Score does it best.

Why? Because each of the wonder goals hammered home by your index digit are reenactments of the finest strikes in international football history.

Eagled-eyed gamers will spot them from the tournaments of yesteryear, from Michael Owen's mazy England goal that humbled Argentina in '98 to Dennis Bergkamp's dreamy volley in '96.

The game's made better by the rating system of the goals, and you need to get them perfect to unlock the next set; think Angry Birds does football and you're there.

8. TeamStream - free

TeamStream from The Bleacher Report

TeamStream is a news and information service from US sporting giant The Bleacher Report that lets you choose your favourite teams and then scrapes stories and tweets from around the web.

It's a good looking one-stop-shop for football news, although it tends to work better for the bigger clubs.

9. BBC Sport - free

BBC Sport

The Beeb has just released its official sports app, which puts all the latest football news at your fingertips. Not only is it great for following the fascinating soap opera of football, but it also has live text commentary of the biggest games from the BBC's world-renowned team of journalists.

It's also fully customisable, so you can filter football stories from the vastly less important rugby, tennis and athletics news.

10. MatchPint - free

Match Pint

You're in a strange city and it's almost the lunchtime kick-off - time to find a pub. Leaving it up to your mate who reckons "he knows somewhere nearby" is a sure-fire recipe for missing the first half or ending up in a friendly local Millwall hangout.

Leave nothing to chance with MatchPint, which find the games on TV and tells you which pubs are showing them, offering reviews of the establishment in question and even guiding you there using Google Maps.

It's one of many apps that do similar things, but the simple interface and multitude of users make it a top-scorer in our eyes.
