New York Knicks Launch Android App
T-Mobile certainly loves Android and the NBA. Every time we turn around, they’re doing something that ties the two together. This week saw the release of a T-Mobile sponsored app called The Knicks: T-Mobile Live. Designed with hardcore (and local) Knickerbocker fans in mind, the free application is broken down into three categories and feature Knicks related content and information whether you are in attendance or not.
For those of you who are at The Garden to take in a game, the app offers recommendations and concession line tips. Type in your section number and find the closest concession stands, restrooms or stores. Taking things one step further, the app provides special discounts and offers for merchandise. You’ll also find maps and listings of all amenities at Madison Square Garden, and directions, parking, transportation and even local dining suggestions.
T-Mobile will manage a live twitter feed through games and offer up extra tips such as beating the lines for food and drinks. And finally, what good would a Knicks app be without current news, pictures, and videos?
You can download The Knicks: T-Mobile Live from the Android Market for free today of by scanning/clicking the barcode to the right! The only problem we see with this app is that it’s limited to local fans.
According to the market description, “Knicks: T-Mobile Live content is only accessible within 75 miles of NYC. If you are located outside of this area, this app won’t work.” As The Dude would say, “Bummer, man.” Here’s hoping an app gets rolled out for every team!
