The IPL Dugout app lets the user hear score updates through voice-overs,so that he or she is clued in even while driving. It also allows the user to view the venues of matches happening in his/her city and also a list of popular pubs/bars that would be screening the matches. The best part is that it’s free,and is available on iTunes (for iPhones and iPads) and Google Play (for Android-based phones).

The IPL Mania app sends reminders for your favorite IPL team’s matches on your mobile phone. And finally,there are some fun apps too. If you want to indulge in making fantasy IPL teams,try Cricket Empires,an app that can be used through social networking sites and is free. The best feature of this app is how it keeps tab of a player’s performance on the field,and then interlinks the user’s strategy with the player’s performance.
