Vodafone And 3 Launch Official Cricket iPhone App

Vodafone And 3 Launch Official Cricket iPhone App

VHA cricket appIs this the way we’re going to see official sports apps launch for the iPhone now? Telstra had the official AFL app, and now Vodafone and 3 have just released the official cricket app, and it sounds pretty comprehensive.

The app, which is a $1.19 download, also allows Vodafone and 3 customers to watch live matches on their iPhone’s screen for $2.50 a day. If you’re on a different network, you can still buy the app, but you don’t get the added video goodness.

Included features for the app (from the press release):

Vodafone and 3 mobile’s Cricket LIVE Summer App gives cricket fans access to:

· Cricket TV channel featuring LIVE streaming action and exclusive video highlights courtesy of Cricket Australia and Channel Nine (Only available to Vodafone and 3 Mobile customers)

· Live scores for every match

· Ball-by-ball text commentary

· Facebook, twitter & email in-app sharing

· Full match schedules and reminders

· The latest Cricket news stories

· Cricket Australia video packages (including behind-the-scenes player footage and interviews)

· Free push notifications on the fall of wickets

· Full player stats for the 2009/2010 summer season.

If you don’t have an iPhone, there’s still the standard Cricket watching options for 3 customers.

Anyone enjoy watching grass grow enough to buy this?
