World Cup 2006 in your Palm

Keep track of all World Cup 2006 match schedules and scores on your Palm with these apps. I have briefly tried the following apps.

Football 2006 by Tinystocks
Good and free. Simple yet attractive UI includes basic info like venue and team history. Includes easy match score updates via hotsync conduit or appropriate internet connection.

World Cup 2006 Guide & Schedule Almost the same as Football 2006 with an attractive UI and stats like Teams and Referees. Also includes data syncing to update latest scores. Unfortunately the score update system is glaringly troublesome where it downloads a .prc file and quits the app the moment you complete it. After which you have to run the downloaded prc file and then return to the app. It has some rather irritating reflash problem when changing pages.

Worldcup by Thomas Pundt
This is mainly for people who prefer manually updating scores. It does not have updates via sync.

World Cup 2006 Planner
Almost the same as Worldcup but with a slightly nicer UI with coloured flags and includes data syncing.

World Cup Mobile 2006 by Resco
Very slick GUI design with lots of soccer news, trivia and info. Unfortunately its not exactly worthwhile unless you are willing to pay a whopping US$20+ for an app specifically for this World Cup.
