IPL app features
With the IPL season running from March through to May, the app is most handy throughout this period. However, it does keep you up to date with all the latest contract transfers/signings/renewals. Additionally, there is information on the hottest gossip throughout the off-season. There’s a dedicated player auction section built into the app. This shares videos, news and all key information in relation to player buys to keep you in the know all year long.

The media is constantly updated throughout the season to share all the special moments from each fixture, as well as post-match interviews. When games are being played, it is recommended to re-visit the app several times as video content is uploaded as and when the action unfolds.
There is also ball by ball commentary included. So if you are unfortunate enough to be in a position not to watch the game, you can still get informed on what happens to each ball thrown at the wicket.
Entertainment is also added in to the app. Features such as being able to take a selfie next to your team’s crest are gimmicky but irresistible at the same time. The attached VIVO IPL Fantasy league also provides a fun element to the app. This allows cricket fans to express their allegiance or knowledge to a wider audience.
You can also state your opinions in public polls whilst matches are being played. You can then view results live on TV. The subject in hand will then be debated by a panel of experts right in front of your eyes.
Add to this other great social features, the fact you can buy game tickets and read detailed post-match reports and the app starts to look like a one-stop shop for all your IPL needs.
Can I bet on the IPL app?
This is one function or feature that the app lacks. No betting information is displayed at all. If you are looking for odds on particular outcomes or to actually place a bet, you will need to use another app or method in order to do so.

How to get the IPL app
As previously mentioned, the official IPL app is available to iOS and Android users. With it being official you can find the apps directly on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Either tap on the links in the previous sentence or head to your relevant app store from your mobile phone or tablet and search for IPL. The official IPL app should be the top result.
Android users also have the advantage of being able to download and install the IPL Lite app. This provides the user with all the key information, but with all the fancy design work, videos and extra features were taken out.
Sounds stupid, but can be a lifesaver for those who have unreliable mobile data connections. This app will work fine in 2G conditions as it only provides data in text format, making it much less data intensive. Unfortunately, there is no such version available at this time for iOS users.

A must have app on your mobile phone or tablet if you love your cricket. The fact that this app was official made our expectations high to begin with and they have been met. If not exceeded. It is a preferred app for the IPL compared to a more general cricket app like the ESPN cricket app as its more focused on the event.
The IPL app holds all the information one would be interested in. It has high-quality media that looks great across all devices (especially tablets where the videos really do stand out). It merges this with fun, collaboration and competition to keep you coming back for more. If you like the IPL or cricket in general, you should be checking this app out today, if you haven’t done so already.
