Football, fun, footwear and more – all at your fingertips.
This clever little application has all the style that you would expect to be associated with Nike. One particular feature that I really liked about this application is the ability to try on various different football boots; I think that this feature should be part of all shoe shopping in general as it would save me a lot of time and energy!
You can take a photo of your leg wearing the football boot of your choice to try it on for size – look like a footballer in the comfort of your own home! The great thing about it is that, should you wish to buy the boots you have tried on, you can do so directly from the app.
You can view the boots of your Nike football favourites and connect with the players all in one place and the social networking side of it all makes it even more compelling. With players such as Rooney, Ronaldo and Torres you can connect with their Facebook and Twitter pages as well as getting regular news on the players and their favourite Nike wear.
Wanna play My Game?
I like the fact that, as well as seeing all of the information from your favourite players, you can share news on either Facebook or Twitter but you can also add your own information to be part of the game. In the ‘My Game’ section you can choose your footwear, weather, playing ground, foot width and skill level as well as taking a photo or uploading a photo to add your profile to the action.
Not only will your profile be a part of the application but it can be uploaded to your Facebook or Twitter account. Once your profile is set up, news and clothing options appear under your profile to suit the choices you made and you can change your profile at any point to get new information.
It’s quite thrill to see yourself as part of the application as your photo stares back at you. I may not be a high energy footballer but it was pretty exciting to pretend for a while!
Shopping in Style
A wide range of Nike clothing and footwear is available through the app such as shirts, shorts and socks and the browsing is easy. Not only is browsing the Pro-Direct Soccer store intuitive and with clear images that can be viewed simply but purchasing items from the in-app shop is quick and easy.
There is a section in the app called My Locker and in this area you can add any items that take your fancy. Building up a locker of clothing helps you to remember the items that you would like to buy in the future – a football wishlist if you will.
With player information, news, a professional football sportswear shop and access to social networks – this app has everything a football fan could want.
