WP7 App(s) Launch: 4 x new Apps for Sports Fans

with 2 comments


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 2011for AFL (that’s Aussie Rules Football for you non Australians)
AU League Fixtures 2011for 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 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!

    • Hi Tim,
      I’ll see what can be done closer to the proper season’s start date (as it’s not yet clear what actual data is going to be available). The ICC Cricket app currently points at a news feed with latest live scores – hopefully at (worst case) this can be provided for the AFL app (if not some integration into the fixture itself).
