Full disclosure: I was asked to be part of Verizon Wireless Midwest Bloggers program. I have been provided with a wireless device and five months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. The phone is the Motorola Razr M. At the end of the program I get to keep the phone. Dan Gilbert himself broke the news via twitter that the Cavaliers were going to be launching a new app at the beginning of the season. The app has launched, but Gilbert is letting us know that improvements are in the plans- “Answers to your @Cavs App questions: iPhone 5 optimization in Nov. iPad version coming late 2012. Game audio & FlashSeats not yet available.” “Thank you @Cavs fans for your feedback. This is just version one of Cavs app. Many improvements and new features to come in next few months.” I am fairly impressed with the functionality of the app. It gives you all the info you would imagine a team specific app would do. The home page has a countdown to the next tip-off right at the top, with all the relevant game information right off the bat. There is a roster section, a stats section, the standings and full schedule which function as you’d like them to and contain what you would want from these sections. You can also connect to the Cav Fanatic boards and the team shop through the app. Clicking these links basically connects you to their respective websites. There is no mobile version look or feel to these spots, and the app menu at the bottom of the screen disappears. Perhaps this will be changed in the future. I am very interested to see Flash Seats added to the app. That will make this a slam dunk must-have app in my book. I would also like to see a version of the NBA.com TV companion added to the app. I love having that open on my tablet while the game is on. Hopefully, Dan Gilbert is a WFNY reader. The app is the best team specific app I’ve seen. Search for it on I-tunes and on the Google Play Store. It is a free app, and looks great on my Razr.
