Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
Advance Internet and Mobile IQ today announced an agreement to launch new Android and iPhone smartphone apps covering high school sports teams in Advance Internet’s 11 local website markets across the U.S.
Mobile IQ, an innovative mobile technology developer for media companies, is working with Advance Internet to provide a unique and engaging smartphone app experience for the millions of high school sports fans using Advance Internet sites – the leading local sources of high school sports news and information in all their markets.
“Our new high school sports apps make it even easier and more fun for students, parents and fans who use our high school sports sites to follow their favorite teams, and to get real-time updates while on the go,” said Peter Weinberger, president of Advance Internet. “They also include new advertising opportunities to provide local businesses with more ways to market to our large, loyal high school sports audience.”
The apps are free for consumers to download and use. Fans are able to select and save their favorite teams to appear on the home screen of the app. Users who select favorite teams will see each team’s latest game scoreboard and upcoming schedule. They also will have the option of requesting “push alert” notifications whenever any of their favorite teams has completed a game.
“We are delighted to be working with Advance Internet on such an innovative set of Apps,” said Shaun Barriball, CEO of Mobile IQ. “Everyone involved has worked hard to provide access to a rich set of sports information in an easy to use interface, that we hope people enjoy.”
