If you’re a New Jersey high school sports fan, particularly if you follow specific schools and teams, you are going to love this app.
Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
NJ.com has launched new Android and iPhone smartphone apps covering high school sports teams throughout New Jersey.
The New Jersey High School Sports Android app and the New Jersey High School Sports iPhone app feature content from the number one New Jersey news, sports and information website in affiliation with The Star-Ledger, The Times, The Jersey Journal, Gloucester County Times, The News of Cumberland County, Today's Sunbeam, Hunterdon County Democrat, The Messenger-Gazette, The Warren Reporter, Independent Press, Suburban News and Cranford Chronicle.
“Thanks to the NJ.com mobile app, paired with comprehensive coverage from The Star-Ledger and NJ.com’s 11 other affiliated newspapers, New Jersey high school sports fans can now be plugged in to their teams even when they’re not in front of a computer,” said Chris Faytok, Star-Ledger HS sports editor.
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.
“If you’re a New Jersey high school sports fan, particularly if you follow specific schools and teams, you are going to love this app,” said David Liss, NJ.com sports producer. “After a couple of easy clicks to set up your team preferences, you’ll have an instant connection to all the results you care about.”
The apps are available for download at no charge in the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. They were developed and launched with Advance Internet and Mobile IQ. The technology development firm Mobile IQ worked with Advance Internet to provide a unique and engaging smartphone app experience for the millions of high school sports fans using Advance Internet sites, including NJ.com – the leading local source of high school sports news and information in New Jersey.
