This weekend, football fans will be salivating with the official beginning of the preseason of the National Football League! The festivities begin with the induction ceremonies at the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, and conclude with the first preseason tilt Monday night. Here are a couple of apps for you to get your gridiron love in gear.
1) NFL Mobile 1.0 (free)
NFL Mobile 1.0 is an app created by Verizon Wireless strictly for the passionate football fan. Coverage
of every game from the first snap of the preseason right through to the Super Bowl is available. For
premium users, this comes with full streaming live video. Quick note: this app also gives you live
video on your iPad as well, but those non-Verizon customers won't have that little perk on theirs.
2) NFL '13 (free)
This app comes to the public as an official product of the NFL and is an all-around wonder. You can
check out your favorite team and all news concerning their player roster, season schedules and
even link up with their Twitter accounts. There's real-time game reporting and scoring updates
available. In down time, catch a podcast or two featuring NFL Network personalities. And if you
get the itch to catch an upcoming game, NFL '13 will also help you get tickets.
3) NFL Sunday Ticket MAX (free)
For those who have DirecTV, the NFL Sunday Ticket is nothing short of manna from above on
Sundays. And now, they've got an app that can make that experience better. This app gives
you the ability to watch every NFL game live with full video streaming in connection with your
television package. And that can be anywhere you go with your iOS device. NFL Sunday Ticket
MAX also gets you NFL RedZone access, which is a boon for the fantasy football aficionado.
