Henderson, NV (PRWEB) March 9, 2011
In February 2011 THE TENNiS APP reached its first milestone with 100,000 downloads. “It's nice to be at 100,000, that's a powerful number,” remarked Bob Bryan, who along with his brother Mike developed THE TENNiS APP. Bob and Mike Bryan are the #1 doubles team in the world and winners of ten Grand Slam doubles titles, including the 2011 Australian Open. “I love the iPad and my iPhone… I’m always downloading apps,’” says tech-savvy Bob Bryan. “We had an idea to develop a tennis app as a teaching tool and we’ve had a lot of fun doing it”.
The app debuted March 2010 in the Apple App Store as a download for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Later that summer the iPad version was introduced. Version 3.1 quickly gained notoriety during the 2010 US Open by moving up among the top ten in the App Store under the search category “sports”. During this time the Bryans filmed a short promo spot for the app, which aired on Tennis Channel.
THE TENNiS APP is the only 52-week tennis information app, which supplies continuously updated News, Scores, Rankings, and one-to-one instruction. The News Feature is moderated and allows the user to stay up to date on the latest in tennis through tweets, web links and videos. The Rankings Feature includes a player’s photo, a search mechanism to quickly find favorite players and the ability to sort by rank, name, or country. The rankings are automatically updated when they come out each week. The Live Scores Feature allows the user to follow all the latest action in the tennis world, with results for all of the major events: ATP, WTA, Davis Cup, Fed Cup, World Team, Qualifiers, Challengers, ITF and the Grand Slams: Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open. The Interactive Instructional Features gives the user one-to-one lessons from Bob and Mike Bryan. The animation control allows the user to slow down the action by adjusting playback speed, as well as pause the lesson and step frame by frame to study every detail. Animations and photos may be automatically flipped to depict either right or left-handed examples.
THE TENNiS APP has become the undisputed market leader in mobile device tennis information applications and is currently #1 on the iPad and #5 on the iPhone under the search category “Tennis” in Apple’s App Store.
THE TENNiS APP is available for free at Apple’s App Store.
THE TENNiS APP is provided by THE TENNiS APP LLC, founded in 2010 and is based in Henderson, Nevada.
