Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) February 23, 2010
Driving Sports TV, in partnership with Wizzard Media, announces the immediate availability of the official Driving Sports mobile application for iPhone and iPod touch. This new App brings together news and entertainment from Driving Sports TV, as well as exclusive bonus features from the Driving Sports editorial team, to create a continuously updated and engaging digital magazine that will appeal to any car enthusiast.
The technology used in the Driving Sports TV App allows users to stream selected videos, saving precious storage space on the device, or download complete clips over a wireless connection. Many updates also include bonus content in the form of PDF layouts, wallpaper graphics, audio or video tracks.
“Think of this as a form of digital magazine for a new generation of car enthusiast,” stated Driving Sports founder and producer, Ryan Douthit. “Automotive magazines have done their job for the past century but the days of ink are numbered. Our new App allows Driving Sports to deliver more depth and entertainment by combining and connecting video, audio and pages to create an optimized mobile experience. It’s simply better.”
“The Driving Sports TV App allows car fans to view and share our content everywhere, on the device that’s already in their pocket, making convenience a big part of the application’s design,” Douthit explained. “Web pages are great, but we’re still a ways off from Internet everywhere. With our App, folks can easily download the most recent videos for later viewing on an airplane, a boat, or any other place their lives may take them.”
Video is only one feature of the Driving Sports TV App. Some topics require greater depth or description than can be included in video alone. To meet this need, many of the episodes include related documents, graphs, articles or audio files to enhance the experience. Special features vary from episode to episode, but may include original interview recordings, photo pages, spec sheets or even topic-inspired wallpaper for your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Designed exclusively for Apple’s iPhone OS, The Driving Sports TV App takes advantage of the platform’s advanced technology. “The simplicity of the App is what makes it so powerful,” says Dave Mansueto from Wizzard Media. “Almost any operation is a swipe or a touch away. This really allows Driving Sports’ unique content to take center stage.”
The Driving Sports TV App is now available in the iTunes App Store for an introductory price of $2.99, with no subscription required. For more information visit http://www.drivingsports.com.
