Update: It appears that CricScoreDroid has been pulled from the Google Play Store. Although quite a useful app, it was not the only handy resource available in the market to keep yourself interested in the latest global cricketing affairs. Previously, we have reviewed many apps based on cricket, but none of them has yet managed to surpass the feature set of Cricter. Ranging from latest cricket fixtures and rankings to live scores and commentary, Cricter for Android packs enough quality content to keep you from resorting to any other alternative. In fact, both CricScoreDroid and Cricter share more or less the same set of features. For instance, the custom notifications feature supported by CricScoreDroid can be enjoyed in the latter, too. Using said feature, you can pick the exact categories for which you want to receive notifications. For instance, you will be able to find individual categories for wickets, 4s, 6s and result etc within the app’s notification segment. All you have to do is choose the required category or multiple categories, and you’re good to go. Next time, whenever there is a live match going around anywhere in the world, you’ll be able to receive real-time status bar notifications for the selected categories.
