WP7 App(s) Launch: 4 x new Apps for Sports Fans
A bunch (4) of new apps have been submitted for certification to Windows Phone 7 Marketplace – which caters for those who are into sport.
These apps all use the recently developed ‘mobilewares Fixture Engine Technology’ (aka MFET – or at least until I come up with a sexier name) – to deliver a consistent and easy to use User Interface for keeping up with your favorite sports.
The four apps are :
AU Footy Fixtures 2011 – for AFL (that’s Aussie Rules Football for you non Australians)
AU League Fixtures 2011 – for NRL (Australian + Slightly Kiwi Rugby League)
ICC World Cup Fixtures 2011 – for the upcoming Cricket World Cup in February-March.
Super Rugby Fixtures 2011 – for SANZAR Super 15 Rugby (Union)
Note : Click on any of the above links to visit the specific product pages on the mobilewares.net website.
All the apps share a similar set of features (populated with appropriate metadata and imagery/logos) :
- View Upcoming Matches for the Comp + Nominated Team.
- Browse Entire season (or tournament) for selected Teams.
- View Round by Round (or day by day) fixtures as well as finals schedule.
- Browse Latest RSS News Feeds from Major Sites with team specific feeds
- Comprehensive Venue details with interactive Bing Maps
- Preloaded Images/Data minimizes bandwidth.
- Easy to use and Intuitive User Interface
Each app will be available shortly on Marketplace in the Sports category (as soon as MSFT publish/certify them) – and will sell for USD$1.99 each. Trial versions are available for each so you can take it for a test drive first.
Here’s some screenshots below of what you can expect (taken mostly from the AU Footy Fixtures 2011 app) :
I hope to bring out more of these apps (for other sports and competitions) over coming months..
stay tuned – and check them out in the Sports section of Windows Marketplace shortly!
