MLB.com’s At The Ballpark helps give fans a prime baseball experience from start to finish. Input your favorite team and the app will displays the best prices for tickets and deliver 'em to you after you've purchased them. Then, the app will retrieve directions to the ballpark from your location, as well as what to do once you get there and where to grab food and memorabilia. It also offers a stadium map in case you can't find your seat and prominently displays where the restrooms are. It's just too bad it can't tell you how long the line is.
No matter how far technology advances, some things manage to stick around. For Virtua Tennis Challenge, that means doing its best to convince the player that it's not just Pong in a fancy new package. While the graphics are impressive and Sega's modern offering serves up more game modes than the 70's classic, it also falls short in some areas where even the simplest of games have excelled.
Although it’s little surprise after seeing banners go up Friday afternoon, iOS 6 is indeed real and Apple wasted no time jumping right in to show developers what they’ll be working with in the months ahead.
All the major sports leagues out there have ironclad contracts governing how their content can be streamed online. The result is that you can't stream most sports broadcasts--at least not for free. Luckily, networks have finally made some of the most culturally significant sports events like the Olympics and the most recent Superbowl available online. In addition to these events, we've found a few other ways to get your sports fix for free, legally, without the hefty premium leagues like the MLB and NBA charge.
Over the course of the next three weeks, the field of 68 college basketball teams will be narrowed down, one by one, until only the best remains. That's a lot of hoops for one person to handle, so don't go it alone. We've rounded up the best companion apps to help you keep track of the madness. From watching games to tracking brackets, these apps will make sure you won't miss a second of the action.
Any sports fan will tell you the greatest social network is not one that's limited to 140 characters; rather it's inside a stadium with 25,000 comrades only interested in following the action playing out in front of them. Play Up - Where Sports Gets Social is built on that very premise: That sporting events are better when they’re shared.
EA Sports' Madden NFL series has been around since the Apple IIGS was the apex of home computing, and the seemingly indestructible franchise found its way to the iPad last summer with Madden NFL 11, which delivered a pretty capable pro football simulation. With a fairly complete version of the sport on the tablet for the first time, it was easy to overlook the jagged play models and janky animations, as well as the lack of a true franchise mode and online play.
But another year has passed, and while Madden's still the only real football option for iPad owners, we expected more than a visual bump and updated rosters.
We all know that Apple frequently giveth and Apple often taketh away -- such was the case with the rear camera on the iPod nano, which disappeared from last year’s diminutive model. A new photo leaked online appears to bring it back again, at the expense of a clip to attach the media player to your clothes.
While the concept of being able to watch the Entertainment and Sports Network on your mobile device might not necessarily be new, one could only watch an "ESPN-lite" of sorts with "ESPN Mobile TV." However, sports junkies can now watch the gang from Bristol on the iPhone with the new WatchESPN app. But as with most wonderful things, there is a catch. You have to be a Time Warner Cable, Bright House, or Verizon FiOS customer.
