CBS Sports NCAA March Madness On Demand

CBS Sports NCAA March Madness On DemandOk, I’m gonna be very honest with you here. I’m not a big sports fan. Ever since Jordan retired from the NBA, I pretty much only watch the finals of any sport. Anyway, if you are a college basketball fan this app is for you. With this app you can stream the video of every game, live from your iPhone or iPod Touch. This only works when connected to wifi but you can listen to audio if you’re on a cellular connection. Along with live video & audio, there are game recaps, bracket info, and up to the minute scores and headlines.

nbcolympics.comI’ve been look and reviewing all kinds of apps for the 2008 Olympics. From web apps to App Store apps and I’ve finnaly found the winner! NBC has their own mobile version of their Olympics web page. It’s built for any mobile device but it works great on the iPhone & iPod Touch. The best feature of all is the video. Again, it works great on the iPhone & iPod Touch and it’s very up to date. There are TONS of features including: medal count, results, schedules, tv & online listings, video, photos, and a lot more. You can even sign up for SMS alerts for all sorts of things. I think the screenshots will tell a lot. [Read more…]

Beijing 2008 Medal Tracker

Available In: App Store       Price: $1.99  

Beijing 2008Beijing 2008 Medal Tracker is as simple as the title suggests. It tracks the top 5 couries in Olympic medals. You can also set your favorite team to track at the bottom. The biggest downfall of this app is the cost. At $1.99, this app is only good for 14 days, then the Olympics are over. I vote pass on this one and check my earlier review of iOlympics the web app or try SportsTap from the App Store.

Available In: Safari       Price: Free  

iOlympicsolympicsLast night the opening events for the 2008 Olympics was amazing! It got me thinking that there had to be some apps out there for the iPhone that would update you on Olympic news, scores and schedules. The first one I’ve found, and best so far, is a web app called iOlympics. It first opens up with a countdown as to how many days are left of the Olympic Games. Next there are 7 choices: News, Today’s Events, Event Schedule, TV Viewing Schedule, Medal Tracker, Sports and Countries.

News covers Olympic news from NBC, BBC, Yahoo, and USA Today. There is also a Most Popular News, Team USA News and a Special Features section. [Read more…]

SportsTap 1.0

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

SportsTap is an application that gives you up-to-date scores and stats for multiple sports. When you open the application, you will get the main screen where you can choose from the following sports; MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA, NASCAR, F1, IndyCar, AFL, PGA, Tennis, MLS, Premier and UEFA. There is also a lower menu bar with the options; Feedback which will open a contact form right in the application, FAQ which will open a FAQ page right in the application and Settings. In the Settings option you have the ability to turn on/off Save Last Viewed Page and Disable iPhone Sleep. If you turn on Save Last Viewed Page, then next time you open the application, it will automatically open to the last page you were on before quitting the application. I think this is a great feature and a major time saver when you are trying to quickly see if the score has changed. If you turn on the Disable iPhone Sleep option, you can leave the application open and your iPhone will not auto-lock or go into sleep mode. This will obviously drain your battery much faster but, it will leave the application open so that you can constantly check the score of a game.

When you select one of the sports on the main menu, [Read more…]

Live Scores – iScores 1.5

iScores Version 1.5 of Live Scores has been released. With the update comes a name change. Which I’m glad they did…it was so confusing to have it called Live Scores in the Installer and iScores on the SpringBoard. But, no need to worry about that anymore, the application has been changed to iScores everywhere. Not only did the application get a name change, it also got a new icon. There have been changes to the actual application as well. When you open iScores, you will see new icons next to each sport. I like it, I think it gives the application a little more color! They have also added Formula 1 to the list of sports. There is also a new Option feature. When in Options you can [Read more…]
