Well, are you ready?? Today is the kickoff to the NFL season (Go Giants!!) and I couldn't be more excited. It's a great time of year for sports fans and I'm ready to grab some pizza and beer and sit on my couch every Sunday (and Monday ... and Thursday). If you happen to get pulled away from your TV during a game for some crazy reason, don't worry because we've go you covered. There are plenty of options for keeping up with the scores all season long, right from your BlackBerry. Keep reading and we'll look at some of the best options.
NFL on your BlackBerry
ScoreMobile is the obvious choice for a go-to app for football. It's been strong on BlackBerry all along and is still being updated with great new features. You can check out all the latest scores and standings as well as set alerts for both your team or single games throughout the season. Never miss a beat when you can't be watching the game. Available free for both phones and PlayBook.
With Tablet TV you can watch tons of TV channels on your BlackBerry PlayBook. The app gives you quick access to top channels so you can watch the game, even when you're not at home. It does take a bit of setup to get going, but once you're up and running it's smooth sailing. Tablet TV is $0.99 in BlackBerry App World.
Pro Football Insider - NFL News
If you want to keep up on the latest NFL news - this is the app for you. It's choc-full of news, updates, insider info, videos and much more. You'll be in the know before anyone else knows, ya know? True football fans will want to grab this app - it's free.
New York Giants Mobile
SORRY! I had to sneak this one in here. The Giants do kick off the season tonight, they are the SuperBowl champs and the app is pretty sweet (although it's HUGE at 6.2mb). It features scores, schedules, news, standings and all that good stuff plus you get a sweet Giants logo icon to look at on your home screen. Best of all? It's free!
Last but not least, the obvious. NFL.com offers up a great mobile site that works on BlackBerry. It's comprehensive and includes news, scores, standings and more. If you're like me and like to go minimal on apps, this may be your best bet. Just add a bookmark to your homescreen and it will never be more than a click away! Oh yeah, this one's free too :-)
