World Cup Countdown

Even if you don’t like football (or soccer, as some of you like to call it), you probably know that the World Cup is coming in 2010.

This time it’s in South Africa and to celebrate we’ve teamed with South Africa Tourism to bring you our latest free app for the iPhone & iPod touch, World Cup Countdown.

World Cup Countdown counts down the days, minutes, hours and seconds until the kick off of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. As well as the timer feature, World Cup Countdown also acts as a digital photoframe displaying a series of beautiful images of South Africa. Clicking on the pictures will give you more information about the scenes you’ve been looking at or even show you a video clip or audio track.

World Cup Countdown also acts as a digital clock by clearly displaying the time and date beneath the photo.

World Cup Countdown overrides your auto-lock setting so your slideshow will continue for as long as you wish. This makes it ideal to keep running while your device is docked and on charge.

World Cup Countdown has a very clean, simple interface – just tap on the clock area of the screen to access the settings screen. Tapping on a photo will reveal more info, zoom in for a better look or play video or audio depending upon the content available. Swipe to advance to the next picture if you don’t want to wait for it to change automatically.

Did we mention it’s FREE – so you’ve got no excuse not to download a copy. If you’re waiting for the World Cup or even thinking of going to South Africa to watch a match then this is the app for you. Even if you don’t like football it’s worth grabbing a copy just to look at the stunning photography and find out a bit more about South Africa.

We’ll be regularly updating the app with both football and South Africa related news. As always, let us know what you think.
