Keep up with American sports by recycling mobile phone

1 December 2010 — 6:56 PM

A publication has launched a pair of new sports-themed iPhone apps

Those who recycle a mobile phone and replace the device with an Apple iPhone will be in pole position to keep track of American sports, if they download either of two new apps.

The Seattle Times reports it has developed a Husky Football 2010 feature, which is free and will offer updates on local teams the Dawgs and Cougars.

Comprehensive coverage both in the run-up to matches and after the final whistle will be available, as well as live statistics and scores during play.

Meanwhile, the newspaper says it is also promoting a brand new Husky Men's Basketball 2010-11 app, which works in a similar way to the football equivalent.

While it admits its first forays into the iPhone market have not been without glitches, it is pleased with the sports-based tools that could be of interest to users around the world.

Another app to look out for is the Christmas-themed Angry Birds game, which is due out later this month, T3 writer Luke Johnson said this week.
