Sit Back, Relax, and Enjoy the Scores

During the 2009 football season, most of my weekends were spent on the couch, furiously checking Yahoo! Sports on my laptop for scores of the games I couldn’t see on TV. While I love our No. 1 ranked sports site, having the bulky computer by my side wasn’t the most comfortable experience, especially when friends were at my house taking up space. But 2010 will be a different story now that a new fixture has been planted on my coffee table: the iPad.
For the start of the 2010 football season, we just launched Yahoo! Sportacular HD, a free iPad app made with a simple and specific purpose: checking scores from the couch. We want Yahoo! Sports fans to have an easy way to follow other games and get up-to-the-second stats in a single tap. Just like Yahoo! Sportacular for iPhone, we’ve optimized the experience for the amazing device built by our friends over at Apple.
With Yahoo! Sportacular HD you can:
• Follow your favorite teams and leagues, including MLB, NFL, and NCAA football coverage
• Check the score and game times in real time
• Track play-by-play events and live player stats
• Get TV station programming information
Many new sports and features will be added over the coming months, but as football fans we wanted to make this free option available for following games for the start of the NFL season.
As always, have fun and let us know if you have any feedback.
Product Manager, Sportacular
