Thanks to mobile technology, UK football and rugby fans can get instant access to all their favorite teams' information, schedules and scores. One of the best ways to get this content is with iPhone apps designed specifically for the sport the user has in mind. Here are the top 5 iPhone apps for UK sports and results. It should be noted that these apps are not ranked in any particular order, but are meant to serve as a broad selection of the best available UK sports iPhone apps.

EPL Live!

EPL Live! is an iPhone app developed by Infindo Technology which allows users to track all their favorite English Premier League football games and tournaments. With EPL Live!, users can follow live text commentary for any EPL game, access team line-up and formation information before the match, look at a visual match summary, view statistics such as fouls, bookings, goals and saves, as well as look up league tables and season results. EPL Live! is great for those on the road or who do not have access to EPL games on television, providing users with accurate, up to date match information.

Guinness Premiership Rugby

This iPhone app is officially licensed by the Guiness Premiership, and was launched by Land Rover in 2009. The app is free to download, and provides users with important rugby information such as news, club fixtures, the latests scores, match reports, league tables, player profiles and ticket information. The app has proven to be very popular among UK rugby fans, due to its professional design and accurate information.

Sky Sports Football Score Centre

Football Score Centre is an iPhone app developed by popular UK sports network Sky Sports. While not officially endorsed by any football league, Sky Sports Football Score Centre covers nearly all levels of English and Scottish football, as well as European cups and international competitions. This provides users with a very large pool of football information, such as live scores and text commentary, league tables, match statistics and photos, team line-ups, player profiles and a My Scores feature, which allows the user to customize which clubs he or she wants to track for easier access later.

Scottish Football Live Score

Made by the same company that developed EPL Live!, Infindo Technology, Scottish Football Live Score has the same goal in mind, but focuses on Scottish League football rather than the EPL. In fact, the app covers all levels of Scottish play, including the Scottish Premiership as well as Divisions I, II, and III. Scottish Football Live Score features real time match coverage, a match progress bar, fixture information, instant table updates, insant team tracking, and sound alerts for goals. For fans of Scottish football, no other iPhone app can match the detailed information provided by Scottish Football Live Score.

English League One

This iPhone app, also developed by Infindo Technology, is closely related to EPL Live!, except that it tracks English League One rather than the EPL. As such, it provides users with all the same features as EPL Live!, including live match information, full fixture data, historical information regarding past seasons, and club tracking.
