Introduction to SmartSoccerNews
Today, everyone is busy, and people don’t have too much time to search the news they like. For soccer fans, they don’t have time to update all the information they need, such as important match time, important transfer news and so on. Right now with this application, fans can get the information they need whenever they open this application.
Target User Group
This application is targeted to the people who love soccer and love to watch live soccer match all around the world. They would like to know what local time begins and which TV will broadcast for a soccer match. They would also like to know players’ details, who are the first 11 player in the field, transfer news, live scores, etc.
Most of the soccer fans love to watch the match in live, and they would find out some new player faces or some favor players not on the field during match. They would like to find out what the reasons are, but they don’t have time to find out during the match. Another problem would be the soccer fans need to waste time on searching the soccer news on internet, and they usually won’t get the information they want immediately. The most common problem would be soccer fans don’t have time to watch the match because they are in work or sleep, but they really want to know the score at once.
Problem Context and Forces
There are some applications can solve some of the problems. For example, the Livescores application: http://www.androidfreeware.net/download-soccer-livescores.html It can provide its users to get to know all the soccer scores they interested no matter what they are doing. However, there is no one application would have all these soccer information at once. The difficulty of the SmartSoccerNews application would be to cover all the corner of the soccer world and cover all the information soccer fans need. And it is also required to be updated the information as quickly as possible. A good solution will be have a group of people to upload each part of the information whenever is possible.
In the screen, it should have different category to choose. Some of the items would be General news; Transfer news; Live Score; Cup information; League matching information; Inside the league matching information part, it should have category about the most favor country, such as: England Premiership, Italy Seria A, Germany Bundesliga, Spain La Liga, France Le Chanpionnat; Under each league, there would be the list of terms, and each terms would have all the players listed, and each player will have their own details.
