ABC Radio and the Cricket

 

With the Australia verses India cricket test match series underway, a good time to mention access to the aBC broadcast for Australians via the ABC digital service including the excellent and fully accessible ABC Radio iOS app for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

The Android version has a lot of unlabelled buttons, but after the show I was able to access ABC Extra to listen to the cricket on my Samsung Tab.

The current version of Siri in beta 10.3 will give you Cricket scores, when the next cricket match is, and what the current score in real time is: hopefully biOS 10.3 will be out before the end of much.
