Ha! Two of my favorite things here: softball and iPad. In the form of the new Easton Softball for iPad app. Unfortunately, this isn’t an app all about softball as a sport in general, or one offering training or technique teaching. Rather, as the name implies, it’s an app that showcases the softball products produced by Easton, one of the leading brand names for this sport.
I’ve been playing softball for more years than I care to remember, and still play with two (very) recreational level teams here in Austin. Easton are a blue-chip name for softball equipment, so I just had to give this new app a quick peek.
And I’m happy to say that if you play a lot of softball, this is a very handy app for whenever you’re in need of any new equipment. It’s got both Fastpitch and Slow-Pitch equipment, as well as a section for clearance items.
The app features a great range (it seems like maybe the complete range) of Easton items – bats, fielding gloves, batting gloves, apparel, softball bags, and even an impressive range of accessories – things like training aids, rosin bags, and pine tar sticks.
It’s a very well executed app, with detailed descriptions and good photos for every item, search bar, the ability to share items by email and add them to your wishlist.
You can purchase products from within the app and save yourself a trip to a sports store – where they likely don’t offer anything like the range of products within the app anyway.
Admittedly this is an app with a relatively small potential audience, but if you’re and active softball player and like Easton equipment, this should prove a very useful app. Oh, and it’s a free app as well.
