After sifting through all the social media aggregators, photo apps, app discovery sites and other start ups all operating out of the same space we found something truly unique and well really freaking cool at TechCrunch Disrupt.
A new company called One Up, that can be found online at https://1up.me, has found a way for sports fans to socially connect and interact with their favorite professional sports games at a new level. It’s Fantasy sports 2.0. One Up has developed, Baseball Connect, Football Connect and Soccer Connect. Currently the games will roll out for iOS devices, but as they tell us in the video they just hired an Android developer who will start on Tuesday for a July launch.
We are just over a month away from opening day on March 31, 2011 and that means it’s time for a new version of MLB.com’s extremely popular app. MLB.com’s At Bat 11 is live and in the Android market for $14.99. It may be a little steep on price but it’s the most comprehensive sports fan app available and it’s a must have for the serious baseball fan.
This year they’ve added mobile access to live streaming video on select Android devices for mlb.tv subscribers (releasing opening day)
Here are some of the features you can enjoy with mlb.com’s At Bat 11. Some of them even start with spring training: – customizable homescreen for your favorite team – Favorite team widget for your homescreen – mlb.com widget for in progress scores – listen to available broadcasts of spring training games – follow batter by batter action for every spring training game – enhanced video library with new search customizations – breaking news, schedules rosters and more
