One of the best things about using an iPad is all the great apps that we can run on it. There are excellent apps for just about any purpose you can think of. Better still, there are lots of great free apps for the iPad. Our Best Free iPad App of the Week posts highlight these apps.
This week’s pick is NBA All-Star 2013 for iPad. It’s the NBA’s official guide to their All-Star weekend events in 2013. This year’s event is in Houston and it kicks off next Friday, February 15.
I think the NBA’s All-Star weekend is always the most fun of any of the big sports’ all star events. I like how young, up and coming stars are showcased and I enjoy the heck out of the Saturday night skills competition, Three-Point shootout, the Slam Dunk contest, and of course the game itself on Sunday night I also love seeing all the great camaraderie there seems to be among NBA players – for me it really shines through on All Star weekend.
I’m also just a big NBA fan all the way around, and this app provides lots of great content for NBA and All-Star weekend fans.
There are some great photos of rising stars, veteran All Stars, and All Star moments.
And of this year’s All Star starters and contestants in the Saturday night challenges…
Of course the app also offers some spectacular video footage. Like highlight reel ‘resumes’ for this year’s Slam Dunk contest entrants:
Or the awesome Career Top 10 Plays compilations for lots of our favorite stars …
The app provides event information and a schedule of the events for the whole weekend. It also lets you vote on the Slam Dunk contest right from within the app.
If you’re an NBA fan or just enjoy NBA All-Star weekend, this is a must-have app for getting psyched up for and enjoying next weekend.
