Channel Nine's Jump-in app has added support for the State of Origin, with a bunch of features to ensure that you don't miss a single second of the action.
Heads up, footy fans: an official Channel Nine iOS app for catching the State of Origin is here.
Although there are a few unofficial State of Origin apps on iTunes and Google Play, if you want to catch everything, Jump-in from State of Origin broadcast partner Channel Nine is the way to go.
Because it's from the channel that's airing the matches, it's able to provide a bunch of information as it happens. This includes up-to-the-minute live matches that you can watch directly from inside the app, scores, match statistics and player statistics.
It's the replay options that really shine, though. Within minutes of any in-game event, you can watch a replay from up to 16 different camera angles of your choice, in real time or slow motion. And, because the State of Origin is already one match down, you can check out highlights from the first match that played on 5 June.
To tide you over, you can also check out a bunch of other State of Origin highlights, including historical footage, player profiles and polls — and you can follow the Twitter feed for the hashtag #Origin.
At the moment, the app is only for iOS, but other OS users can access it through the mobile website. "We want to make sure we can bring the best Jump-in experience to all users. To do this, we are first working on a new web version of Jump-in," said Bec Haagsma, director of Convergence at developer Mi9. "Users will be able to access all of Jump-in's great iOS features via jump-in.com.au from any device. We know that some consumers still prefer to access these types of experiences through an app, so will also be releasing an Android app experience to market in 2014."
