Kerel Cooper of On The Black and our own David Daniels talk about the 2011 version of the MLB At Bat app for the iPhone. Now is the perfect time to invest in the app before the season starts next week. I have the Android version and love it. I’ve been listening to the Mets spring training games, even when they’re not broadcast on WFAN by tuning into the opposing team’s broadcast.
The app has real-time game tracking, a scoreboard, MLB news, and let’s you pick your favorite team. It’ll customize the experience to your team as well. MLB Advanced Media really did a nice job with this version. It’s worth the $15 if you’re a big fan.
Spring training is finally here with pitchers & catchers reporting this week and the Mets blogosphere is now starting to come alive. It’s my favorite time of year…
But over at my personal blog, where I track iPhone apps and other various tech tool and plugins, I’m anxiously awaiting the release of MLB.com’s At Bat 2011 iPhone App. Where is it? No one knows. I received a teaser notification from the 2010 version of the app informing me the 2011 version is on it’s way. No date was announced though.
I’m just not sure what’s holding this app up. I do know there is a huge update to the Android edition of the app that will include streaming video of every MLB game. Of course, blackout restrictions apply which means you will not be able to watch your home teams play. No one knows how much the new app will cost. Last year the app was $14.99. This year I’ve heard numbers anywhere from $20 to free. All this is just speculation though.
So leave your comments, when do you think the app is coming out, what new features do you think will be available, what’s the difference between the Android and iPhone editions of the app?
