Must-Have Sports Apps

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Sep 13, 2011 5:47:00 PM

Sooo many sports apps, sooo little time!

A View From My Seat

I may not be the biggest sports fan and this app sounds cool even to me! Last year I was buying tickets to Louden, NH's Nascar race for myself and 5 others. The seats were in turn 4. I've always sat close to the start/finish line there in the past so I wasn't sure if these seats would allow me to see the whole front stretch. To me that's a deal breaker. If I can't see the cars pitting, coming off the 4th turn and going into the first, I'd almost rather watch it on TV.

This app is for, MLB, NFL, NBA, Minor League Baseball, College Football and Soccer (Intntl Football), Tennis, Hockey, Racing fans, Roller Derby, Concert seating and more  It's called A View From My Seat and it's very cool. Download the app to your phone or visit their website from your PC. The website is nice because you can see the pictures so much larger.

Do you have awesome seats? A good way to show off your view is to post your pictures to A View From My Seat so others can get an idea of seating views.!

Fun, right? Search "My Seat" in the Market.

Patriots Insider

Everyone has their favorite teams. Here in New England we heart the New England Patriots! (I am not speaking of ALL New Englanders so don't send me threatening messages!)

Here are a few more that I didn't talk about on the show but are great apps just the same.

Car Locator

This last app is really a sports app but it'll sure help you when you go to a large event, have a few beers, then can't find your car when you leave many hours later. Nascar events are famous for this. Pocono's has parking all over the place and if you jump on a shuttle I almost guarantee you'll never find you car again!
