Mobile Apps
^M00:00:00 [ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >>Hey guys, Brian Tong here with CNET TV with our all new show that we like to call "Tap That App" and we are sticking to that name and what we want to do is showcase all the coolest and hottest applications in the mobile space. We'll be covering things like Android, the iPhone, the iIPad, here, as well as Blackberry Ampere if we're able to find them. Now, it's the opening week of baseball, the iPad also just came out, there's a lot of applications that are basically ports but we really wanted a showcase of application like MLB At Bat 2010 and this is really just a tip of the iceberg as some of the really awesome apps that we've seen coming out for this platform. So, when I open up this launch page, you'll see here all the current games that are running for today, they'll be here up at the top and then you'll see a layout of the current game that's happening, this is Baltimore vs Tampa Bay and we have the pitch count. You can also pull up line ups here and see how everyone's doing. Click on a specific player to check out their player card and their stats. So, this is all within the application and if there's highlights available, you can click right here, that'll start playing them, you can pump them up full screen...what's that, great catch...and then close it back down and then the highlight pops right back in that corner. Now, what really makes this app special is the fact that with MLB At Bat you also have the ability to stream the games on the iPad itself. So, what I'm going to do is jump over here and we have a variety of games that are going on right now, you have a free game of the day but if you want to watch every single game you have to subscribe to MLB.TV, their service, but let's just go into the free game. So, the game is now streaming live, it does stream over Wi-Fi and 3G. What I love about this is while the live stream is going on, you have access to the stats of the game that you can click, popup, here's the box score and you'll see all the players. Again, if you want to see how a player is doing for the season, you'll pull up their player card and this is all overlaid on top of the game. We haven't seen anything really like this and this is specific to the iPAD. Another thing that you can also do here is check out the line ups, where players are positioned, it will give you a layout of the diamond, whose at bat, whose in the outfield and again, if I want to see a player card, I just click on it and it pops right up. And also, if you want to see what other games are currently doing, click here on this game's bun and over the top, you'll see an over lay of all of the latest scores. So MLB At Bat 2010 enables you to stream live games over Wi-Fi and 3G and interact with the stats while the game is going, all the box scores and player cards. The thing about this is that if you really want to take full advantage of it, you probably want to get the MLB TV service which ranges somewhere around $100. So the verdict on this app, well, if you're not really a baseball fan or sports fan, you probably don't care about this, but we really wanted to show what's already possible on the iPAD and if you love baseball, would you tap it? Oh yes, you would! Now remember if you guys have any apps that you want to send to us to check out and showcase, send your emails to Tap That App at CNET.com and if any of you are brand new iPAD owners, you can watch this show and all of our other good stuff at CNET TV.com made specifically for the iPAD, I'm Brian Tong, thanks for watching, we'll catch you guys next week.
