An Update for MLB At Bat

"MLB.com At Bat, the top-selling, award-winning suite of mobile applications developed by MLB Advanced Media, has issued its Opening Day application updates which include a host of new features, offers and functionalities."

The best part of this update is a month free of access to MLB.TV during April, courtesy of Volvo. Of course there are numerous updates for the iPad as well as the iPhone/iPod Touch versions including subscription access to watch out-of-market games live and in-progress video highlights. It's available now for $14.99 one time fee in iTunes for iPad [affiliate link] and iPhone/iPod Touch [affiliate link]. After all, it is baseball season now.

MLB At Bat 2010 Released

"With spring training beginning this week, Major League Baseball has rolled out today the 2010 version of the popular iPhone app, At Bat 2010."

Last year At Bat 2009 was a great app, but it was priced at $9.99 USD if I remember correctly. MLB At Bat 2010 is available now in iTunes for $14.99 USD. This is causing me to really debate the need for it, even though I did get a lot out of last years version. I don't see a lot of upgrades for $5.00 USD premium over the previous version. Now if this works on the iPad, which I'm assuming it will, then I may have to change my way of thinking. Anyone out there going to spring for this version?

MLB About To Make $1 Million on iPhone App

"Major League Baseball's At Bat iPhone app is a hit -- and a money maker. The league tells us it's sold 130,000 copies of the $10 app so far this year. That translates to about $1.3 million in gross revenue. After Apple's 30% cut, MLB's take is about $910,000 so far -- with five months left in the season. (iPhone and iPod touch owners have also downloaded about 220,000 copies of the free At Bat Lite.)"

The first app I downloaded when I got my iPhone 3G was MLB @Bat. In fact, the whole reason I got the iPhone in the first place was the demo of the app they showed at MacWorld last year. MLB has put together a brilliant app that works well and whose functionality keeps improving, and it's one of my most-used apps. I'm honestly quite surprised the NBA, NHL, and NFL haven't followed suit.

It's $1 million, and it's the biggest money making league in professional sports, but that $1 million was earned because they put out a great product; case closed.
