I can’t remember a better summer for sports fans than this one. The NBA Playoffs were thrilling this year, baseball season is going strong, EURO 2012 has been a thrilling tournament so far, the London Olympics are not far off now, and tomorrow Wimbledon gets underway.
Yesterday the official Wimbledon iPhone app for 2012 was released. It’s quite a nice app, as always – and it actually looks pretty good on the iPad too. This year’s version offers a new feature called Live @ Wimbledon, described like so:
A link out to the Live@Wimbledon Video Web page has been added. Live@Wimbledon presented by Mats Wilander and Annabel Croft, will provide all the colour of the Grounds, whilst bringing coverage of crucial moments from each of the most important matches. It is available to users only in the UK and the Americas (excluding Brazil), for the first year.
The app’s main sections cover News, Live Scores, Results, Schedule and More – which includes player profiles, multimedia galleries, draws, Find It, and the new Live @ Wimbledon feature.
Here’s a couple more screencaps of the app on the iPad:
Just as an aside, Tsonga is my dark-horse pick for the Mens winner this year. I think if anyone can break through the Big 3 this year it might well be him.
Here’s an App Store link for Wimbledon; it’s a free app.
