CNET News Video: Tech Minute: March Madness on your mobile device

1:03 /

For college basketball fans, we're about to embark on their favorite time of year: March Madness. This year, follow the NCAA tournament on your mobile device with a few handy apps. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on some of her favorites for keeping up with this annual tradition.

Like in previous years, you can watch every single NCAA tournament game on truTV, TNT, TBS or CBS, the parent company of CNET. But if you can't catch the game on your traditional TV, pull out your smartphone or tablet instead and download the free NCAA March Madness Live app. You'll need your TV service provider information, but from there, access the games and social and interactive components. You'll never miss a minute. Let's face it, one of the best parts of the NCAA tournament is filling out your bracket and hopes to win the office pool. For $0.99 the app Pocket Bracket: March Men's College Basketball Tournament will easily let you make your picks and keep track of your progress. Create unlimited brackets and challenge your friends in your own pools. Also $0.99 is the app Ultimate College Hoops Trivia with over 250 basketball related questions, this is the perfect app for commercial breaks or side bets. Enjoy March Madness and may be the best team win. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Suboy, cnet.com for CBS News.
