“World Cup fever has descended upon the iOS app store, both globally and in the United States,” Lucas reports for AppFigures. “Apps designed specifically to follow the world’s largest sporting event are surging up the ranks with none benefiting more than the official FIFA app.”
“The official FIFA app, which was ranked in the 400s or lower just in May, has now gone to the top of the charts,” Lucas told MacDailyNews via email.
“Univision Deportes and watchESPN, two apps that offer live streams of first-round matches, have kept pace with the official FIFA app,” Lucas reports. “As of June 16th, these three are ranked one, two, and three in the US Sports category as well as one, three, and seven in the US Top Overall category.”
