For $39.99, users can subscribe to the NBA League Pass which includes all of the features above as well as live streaming of all NBA regular season games, a full archive of all the season’s games, and live in-game stat overlays.

Currently, NBA Game Time 2011-2012 is compatible with all iOS devices running version 4.0 or higher, but it isn’t optimized for the iPad.

Baseball is widely viewed as one of the most statistically analyzed and dependent sports on the planet. It is amazing how a simple game of balls and strikes can turn into such an analytical chess match, but anyone who has every watched a professional baseball game knows that everything morsel of information is looked over to the nth degree. The problem is, recording these key facts are a tedious and time consuming task, well at least they were until StatCatcher Baseball and Softball came around…
Imagine being able to keep a full season worth player stats, averages, and analysis, all from the comfort of your iOS device. StatCatcher allows you to do all of this and more, including the ability to take pictures on the device and email out custom designed trading cards for each and every player on your team. I hope Little League coaches are paying attention out there, because these are the kind of intangibles that can make the difference between a good and great team.

CBS Sports has updated their football app specifically for the playoffs. And as another playoff weekend arrives, football fanatics and iPad owners both may want to hit the App Store and snag this free application.
Even those that aren’t much for the game with that weird oblong ball may need to check this one out. What better way to stroll into that Super Bowl party you usually only enjoy because of the commercials than to do so sporting your iPad, a sweet new app and all the random season and playoff stats you’ve memorized along the way? Next time you slam dunk those nachos into your pie hole, you’ll do it with a new air of confidence and unending justice.
With CBS Sports Football for the iPad, you’ll be privy to live drive charts for each game, constantly updating stats, play-by-plays, relevant headlines, video clips, message boards and more. All of that content can make this application’s presentation a little too chunky and crowded for some folks’ likings, but stat junkies and those that need to be up-to-date on every playoff moment will likely rejoice. Be warned, however, as some users complain about a little screen lag.
Those among us a bit resistant to change are probably pointing towards their currently installed sports or football specific application as their go-to for gridiron glory. To those fans we toss out this nugget of logic: this application, like many others of the same variety, is completely free. That earns you a free perspective on all the action on the field, post-game, pre-game and throughout CBS’ current football headlines.
That’s right, “it’s good.”
ProCreative Golf 09 is a beautiful app with an interface that's just as great. But with the high price of $14.99 and the lack of a course editor, it might be better to check out some of the other golf apps.

Apple finally catches up and announces that there are 10,000 apps in the app store. You’re welcome, Apple, for the heads up earlier this week. They also announced a number that is truly staggering.
There have been 300,000,000 app downloads thus far. That’s over over 2 million per day average since the app store went live in July. That just leaves me awe struck.
Truly the iPhone is now the predominant mobile platform for application developers. Over 12 million headsets wordwide and the number 1 selling smartphone last quarter.
With the continued amazing growth we’ve seen, when do you think the app store will hit it’s 1 billionth app download? My guess is August 22, 2009 and the app will be a flashlight app :). If the app store continues to grow the way it has, it should be next year.
