Two of my favourite Canadian iPhone apps recently were updated: The Globe and Mail, and ScoreMobile. I just can’t get enough news and sports, and these two apps make it a breeze to find out the latest.
The Globe and Mail 1.12 update:
– Fix for crashing experienced by some users
– Faster app loading times
– Several bug fixes and stability improvements
ScoreMobile 2.0 update:
Added support for Hockey Push Alerts! You can now subscribe to receive notifications for specific games or teams by tapping the ‘Track’ button within box scores or from the ‘Alerts Settings’ tab.
Push Alert types include:
– Game Start/End
– Close Game
– Score – Each Period
– Every Goal
– …and more to come!
What I’d like to see is Instapaper support for the Globe and Mail app. I’ve tweeted about this before, and many of you seem to agree. I’ve contacted the Spreed Inc. team, and they will be getting back to me.
As for ScoreMobile, this update brings Push alerts, a welcome addition even if it is late to the game. Other sports apps such as NHL Gamecenter already does an amazing job of managing Push alerts.
Any other Canadian app updates you want us to know about? Sound off in the comments!
Thanks to @XianNewman for the heads up!
