Rugby World Cup Predictor App

By , 21 Sep 2015

The Rugby World Cup 2015 has just got under way and the Rugby World Cup Predictor App from the children's rugby charity, Wooden Spoon, is just one of many ways that Rugby fans can get involved.

Rugby World Cup 2015

The Rugby World Cup was first held in 1987 and this four-yearly tournament is being held in the UK this year. The event takes place between the 18th September and 31st October, with the winners of the finale receiving the William Webb Ellis Cup, named after the supposed inventor of rugby.

The Rugby World Cup Predictor App has been created by Apps Plus on behalf of children's charity Wooden Spoon. The app is compatible with iOS 7 or later devices such as the Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and Apple iPod Touch. It can be downloaded from the iTunes app store and at less than 12MB, the app only requires a small amount of internal memory.

Rugby World Cup Predictor App

The Rugby World Cup Predictor App adds a new level of enjoyment to watching the rugby games, aired on ITV and 43 free-to-air broadcasters, which are taking place across 13 venues in England and Cardiff.

After downloading the app, the first step is to set up a mini-league and send out joining invites to family members and friends. This step creates a league just for the invitees and is accompanied by a World League, for the ultra-competitive.

Points are awarded for each rugby game in several ways:

  1. Correctly predict the winner of the match
  2. Correctly predict the number of tries scored by each team in the match
  3. Earn extra points based on how closely the final score is predicted.

The app is easy to navigate with the games bundled into tabs for the groups, quarter finals, semifinals and the Rugby World Cup Final.

About Wooden Spoon

Wooden Spoon is a children’s charity that was formed in 1983 following England’s defeat in the Five Nations Championship. A wooden spoon was awarded to a group of English fans by a group of Irish fans and the loser's trophy was played for, a few months later, in a golfing event that raised money for the new charity.

Wooden Spoon have since distributed over £22m to more than 650 charity projects in the UK and Ireland. Wooden Spoon funds respite care for children with disabilities and life-limiting medical conditions and for community projects for children who grow up in areas of severe social deprivation.

Michael Brown is a technology enthusiast who also creates reviews of mobile phones and smartphone apps on behalf of Mobilephones.com.
