About ManUtd is an excellent iPhone and iPad App for United fans. Launched this season by the people behind the respected Manchester United stats website, it’s already giving fans facts and stats to back them up in all Man Utd discussions around the world.
About ManUtd is a fact-supplying app that:
- Covers every official match played by Manchester United since 1886 – over 5300 of them.
- Lists every United team and every United goal-scorer; for many matches it also gives the opposition team and scorers.
- Provides stats and summaries for each of the 863 United players, 19 managers, 115 seasons and 209 opponents.
- Contains original profiles supporting the stats for all managers, all recent seasons, and many players.
- Is updated after every match.
- Apart from updates, the app does not need internet access – perfect for getting Manchester United stats on the go.
Making the most of familiar iPhone and iPad conventions, the App is really easy to use.
You can filter and sort the lists to find what you want. For example, you can easily filter the players’ list to display just wingers, who are Scottish, who have made more than 10 appearances – and then order them by goals scored. (Top of the list, incidentally, comes Willie Morgan 1968-1975; details include his date and place of birth, clubs before and after United, every match he played in, season summaries, and a profile of his United career.)
Or you can filter the seasons to find out when Man Utd played in the European Cup, or won the FA Cup. Or find the Premiership away matches against Chelsea.
About ManUtd is an App that’s difficult to put down. Who was in the squad that season? Where did we finish in the League? How many times has United beaten Liverpool at Anfield? The questions keep coming and the App keeps supplying the answers.
Bonus tip: You can use the About ManUtd app to get quick answers to our ticket giveaways (such as this one) and other contests on the blog.
