Cricbuzz has always been my favourite app with its deep coverage and clearer analysis. The other app I normally use is ESPNCricInfo for its inside news info. I have 3 or 4 of them installed on my phone including Yahoo cricket and Cricbuzz.

Kudos to the author for coming up with a comprehensive list of cricket apps providing coverage of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 event. I normally use Cricinfo app for daily cricket score updates, match reports and player interviews. Recently, I have started using the official ICC CWC 2015 app and Star Sports cricket app only for the World Cup event in Australia and New Zealand. It is amazing to catch up live streaming of cricket matches on smartphones using these apps. I watch only Team India matches on TV, while for remaining team matches I watch the highlights on such apps.
