Mobile Apps

Postby Matthias » Sat Apr 02, 2011 1:10 pm

So I have a Droid 2 and was looking at what apps were available for baseball. There's an MLB At Bat Lite which is free; an MLB At Bat regular which is $15 and I suppose all sorts of other things. Is the MLB At Bat regular worth the $15? Anything else that does the same thing for free? Pretend that I can afford it but am cheap.

Selfishily, I'd like discussion on Droid apps but all of you IPhone and other people feel free to chime in, too and help each other out.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Here is the unique part: MLB At Bat lets you get audio stream of every game, choose home or away (or spanish) audio feed, no black outs. No other app will give you that. If you don't want the audio, then it probably isn't worth it as much.

Every year it is the best $15 I spend. Of course I'm an old geezer and have always thought of baseball as a radio sport.

I'm looking for the ultimate player update app. Rotowire could be except that they only keep about 25 recent player updates. If it kept 200 it would mean I wouldn't miss any. I've sent that as a feedback, maybe if enough people did so they would make the change.

Fanball's app was by far the best for player updates. But when fanball went bellyup, so did the app.

Rotoworld.com on my pc is my favorite player updates. On their app though, it stinks. Its the NBCsports app and you have to navigate to get to player updates and when you get there it is impossible to navigate.

I haven't checked out sportstap yet, does that have player updates?

My favorite app right now is fantasy sports coach. Its like the cafe here where you can bounce questions off people but I can do it on my iphone. Well worth the 99 cents.

I have use KFFL's app. Its good but they do not update it quick enough.

Ditto on Fantasy Sports Coach. Really nice app for fantasy advice. KFFL's app is nice too, but seem to just link to the website for information, which makes it slower. The ESPN Scorecenter app is really nice too. AND, I use MyFantasyTeams or Fantasy Monster to check stats on my teams.

Yes, there is a cbssports.com app (for iphone at least) And it stinks. From what I've seen, ESPN is the best app to manage your league, Yahoo is second, and cbssports is the worst. I guess its because you get what you pay for.... oh wait... I'm paying for my league on cbssports. For a long time I thought it was worth the cost, but they just aren't keeping up now and it may be time to look elsewhere.

Just got the iPhone today and am absolutely loving the ESPN Fantasy Baseball app.

If you're an MLB.tv subscriber, At Bat lets you watch live games.

The CBS app is useful for staying on top of your league's scoring, but the roster and add/drop interface is unusable.
