Everything you need to know about your favorite team, all in one great app
It’s no secret: businesses are going mobile. Experts have, time and again, encouraged even the smallest businesses to go mobile and cater to the current market with mobile apps and mobile-optimized websites. Forbes has said that today’s consumers are “using mobile devices to access social media and business sites… they’re roaming the streets clutching smartphones and tablets, looking for things to do or buy.”
But even when they’re not looking for things to buy or businesses to visit, 81% of smartphone owners still use their devices to access information on the internet. Gaming Realms, operators of mobile gaming site Castle Jackpot, have said that the global smartphone and tablet markets are expected to exceed the PC market in the next few years, with the market for virtual goods doubling from 2010 to 2014.
With 34% of users going online using mostly their phones, it’s no surprise that everyone wants to make not just mobile-friendly websites, but easy-access apps that provide complete and up-to-date information to anyone who needs it. The New York Knicks have recognized this as well, releasing their first official app on both Android and iPhone.
The Official New York Knicks App lets fans have access to the latest news on the New York Knicks, with live content feed featuring everything from photos to interview videos. Game scores are also updated real-time on the app, with enhanced player and team stats and standings. For those who are watching live games, they can even use the app to order and reserve merchandise to be claimed at the booths at the arena, and there are even up-to-date arena maps and seating charts available on the app.
The app is completely free and is regularly updated, so NYK fans who are always on the go can have easy access to all the information on their favorite team, wherever they are!
