Building on the success of the MirrorFootball.co.uk website (3.8m unique users in June 2011.Source: ABC) the app allows users to personalise their homepage with a bookmark for their chosen Premier League club. It also offers extensive photo and video-led content, club-specific news and live match-trackers for minute-by- minute results, as well as new global fan blog content.
Giving fans instant access to a 24/7 news service wherever and whenever they want, the app features a wealth of exclusive daily opinion pieces from award-winning writers and football legends including Oliver Holt, transfer gossip expert Darren Lewis, Martin Lipton, Robbie Savage and Mark Lawrenson. Users can comment on articles and send them on to friends and publish to Twitter and Facebook.
