For the last couple of days, I suspect many of you were going through World Cup 2010 withdrawal. Thankfully, this morning quarterfinal play has started up, and as I write this the Dutch are taking on the Brazilians in the first match of the day. With that in mind, I thought the ‘footballers’ out there may want to check out a new app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch from Paragon Software Group and Langenscheidt.
They’ve just released a mobile version of the UEFA Football Dictionary. The app works just fine and dandy on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, and provides definitions and translations to over 5,700 terms, in the three official UEFA languages (English, French and German).
I have to assume this app is for the hardcore football fan only, as it will run you $15.99 USD at regular price. As a special launch promo however, the UEFA Football Dictionary is on sale for $11.99. For all the details hit up the app store link below, or keep reading after the jump for the press release.
