APPS: Don't Miss the Games' Highlights!

Hey everyone? How are you doing?

There are few days left for the World Cup, so I selected some nice apps that will give you the games' updates in case you miss them.
I am a big fan of apps, so this post is for me as well! haha  

Here they are:

  • Fifa Official App: You can select up to 3 of your favorite national teams on World Match Centre and follow the updates about them, and also read other news about soccer in general.
  • ESPN FC Soccer and World Cup: For iOS 7 - videos, highlights, news, opinion about the 2014 World Cup and more
  • ESPN Sport Centre: This app is for any sport, but you can select your favorite sports and teams and receive pop up news. 
  • USA World Cup 2014: Follow the US team, game dates and results.

APPS: For Travelers

Hi Guys,

I've selected some apps for those who are coming to Brazil for the games or even for those who like to take pictures and post on social medias.

So here they are:

TRIP ADVISOR - Is a good app to review restaurants, hotels and share your opinion about the city and fun places.

FOURSQUARE - Also a good app to rate places in a city and view other people comments about places. You can check in where you are so it makes easy for your friends to find you! Very clever.

WAZE - For those who are driving or if your taking a cab. View the traffic and use as a navigator. Very useful! 

EASY TAXI - Oh yeah! One of my favorite apps of all. Call a taxi direct from your phone, track where the taxi is and how many minutes it will take for the driver to arrive. You will see his name and picture on your screen.
I wrote another post about Taxi in Rio. Take a look!

PhotoPost - Very very cool app!!! Print your pictures direct from your phone and receive them anywhere in Brazil. Select pictures from Facebook, Instagram, your phone or Dropbox, apply effects and borders, choose the size and you are done! The pictures will be delivered to your address or hotel in a cute envelope! The estimate delivery time is 2 - 4 days for capitals and up to 8 days for other cities. How cool is that? 
Here is how it works:

FRAMATIC - Make collage, add nice borders to your pictures and make them more fun! The rates for this app are very good. No doubt it will be very useful during this World Cup.

If you have any other suggestions please leave a comment below. They are always welcome.

This is so much fun!

An online FREE album where you can add your stickers, swap them, make friends and learn about the nations and players.

You first need to sign up at then you are ready to start.
You have until August 31st to start.
Every day you will receive 3 packs, but you can get codes online  and redeem them to receive more packs or complete a FIFA quiz. Here is one code for you: FREE-PACK-2014

What I like the most is that we can create our own rules to swap, when the two players agree with the rule, you have a deal! Cool, right?

Completing the album before August 31st you will be eligible to win prizes.

So, let's begging?

I'm so lucky, I already got Julio Cesar from Brazil and... Cristiano Ronaldo!!! 

OK... just because I'm nice I will give you another code: MY-NEW-FIFA-PACK

Oh, but you can only open 5 packs per day.

Let's have some fun :)

SONGS: Shakira - Brazil 2014

Hi guys!

So, Shakira made a very nice song and an amazing video clip for Brazil 2014. It's not an official video by FIFA but it's cool, more than 16 million people already watched it... so it's here.

I'm a big fan of Shakira, hope you enjoy it!

Oh, Milan, her son is also in the video, very cute kicking a ball, showing talent just like daddy, Piquet!

Have a good weekend!
