This week we are talking about Hockey. The NHL Stanley Cup final between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Tampa Bay Lightening starts this week and I thought it would be appropriate to try to see if I could discover a few hockey apps for everyone.
Number 1 is “Hockey Horns Live” by Benjamin Yip. This is a simple yet entertaining free hockey app that lets users choose their favorite NHL team and then it sounds off a hockey goal horn every time their team scores a goal. It also has notifications so you get a notification and score with each goal. Comes in handy when you’re not able to watch. One of the things I like is the face that the horn sounds are the correct horns for each team. Definitely one app to have.
Video App Review
Hockey Radio App
Number 2 is “Hockey Streams – Free Hockey Radio” by Miner Patel. If you aren’t able to see the game at least you can listen to it. This app is free. It features a home and away stream for each scheduled game. The app also gives scores and status of each of the games for the current day. You can listen to pre and post coverage because the streams run all day not just during the game.
Know the Score! Check the Stats!
Number 3 is “Sports Scores & Alerts” by Luno Software – This app is an awesome way to keep track of your favorite team’s scores, standings, and statistics. In fact there’s so much information I don’t have enough time to get into it. But lets just say if you need baseball, hockey, basketball, or football information regarding scores and stats…this app has it! It looks great, it’s organized to be easy to use, and it’s free! Definitely pick this app up today!
It's the NHL so yeah it's good!
Number 4 is obvious “NHL” by NHL Interactive Enterprises. This app lets you choose the teams you follow and then shows you the latest information on your followed teams, scores, videos, bracket information, rosters, and much more. You can even set the app to send you notifications about goals, period summaries, going to overtime, and final score. It’s an awesome app for any NHL fan. Seems to make sense to me since it’ comes from the NHL. No brainer!
It's like sticks holding hockey sticks!
Number 5 is a fun hockey game called “Stickman Ice Hockey” by Djinnworks GmbH. Basically to make it simple remember all those stickman fighting games? Yeah well take those guys, give them hockey sticks, put them on a hockey rink and drop the puck! This is stickman ice hockey! It’s fun, fast, and kind of silly. There’s open air classic, quick game, short season, long season, world cup, playoffs, westcoast cup, and eastcoast cup game modes. It’s not perfect but it’s a light weight, easy to pick up hockey game for anyone with an iPhone 5 or above. Check it out! It’s lots of fun!
