Baseball is Back!

MLB is BackSpring is here. After a long snow-filled winter, we welcome the warmer weather, budding flowers, green lawns, and the return of baseball. As American as cherry pie, baseball is one of those sports you can’t help but love.

For those of you who follow Major League Baseball, check out our Channels page. We have mobile content for over 30 of the league’s premier teams at your fingertips. Download wallpapers, at-bat ringtones, or sign up to receive in-game alerts from your favorite team. If you head to a game this spring, be sure to check the game-day weather forecast before leaving the house without a jacket (or umbrella for those pesky rain delays). Stuck at work during a day game? No worries – subscribe to MLB’s Gameday Audio Service and listen from your desk.

We also have some fun stuff for those of you hitting the little league fields on Saturday mornings. A Baseball Tracker for Blackberry allows little league parents and coaches to track multiple players batting averages while sitting at the game. Instructional 5min.com videos are also available on the site, including a demo on “Working the Fence” in the outfield.

However you enjoy the game this spring, have fun and don’t be shy about ordering that hotdog. Go Red Sox!

SnapMyLife Now Customized for the iPhone

SnapMyLife Web AppGreat news for all iPhone users! SnapMyLife is now an even better way for you to share and view photos directly from your phone. Already ranked in the top ten of Apple’s mobile social networks, SnapMyLife gets a spiffy iPhone-styled upgrade that feels just like an extension of the iPhone’s built-in apps.

The SnapMyLife iPhone web app, built specifically for the Apple iPhone, enables you to share your pictures right from your phone with friends, family, and the world. You can browse through the latest photos, make comments, mark your favorites, and even build a group of friends to share with regularly. With the latest upgrade, you can even place the new SnapMyLife web app directly onto the iPhone dashboard for instant access.

Earlier this week, we demoed a beta version of SnapMyLife iPhone web app at MoMo Boston and it grabbed some attention. “Several intriguing Web-based iPhone apps from local developers were on display last night. One of the coolest that I saw was SnapMyLife, an online photo sharing community for camera-phone users…” said Wade Roush from Xconomy in his article Jail-Breaking iPhones and Other Tales from the Apple Store.

Apple iPhone SDK – A Glimpse of What’s to Come

Apple continues to stir things up in the mobile world with its introduction of the iPhone software development kit (SDK) earlier this month. Although iPhone users will need to be patient since it’ll be some time before the “App” icon magically appears on their phones, there’s reason to wait. Just imagine the flurry of new third-party applications, touch enabled and motion sensitive, that’ll be launched later this year.

SDK

In the meantime, developers of all types, ranging from games to business applications, have downloaded the SDK, eager to explore ways of enriching their applications and services. Those of us in the Boston are no exception. In fact, tomorrow evening, MoMo (Mobile Mondays) Boston is hosting an iPhone SDK party at the Apple Store at the CambridgeSide Galleria, to be followed by an after-party at a local bar. In addition to free food and drinks, you’ll see demos of the SnapMyLife iPhone webapp and others. So, if you’re in the Boston area, come by and check the party out on March 24 at 7pm. For more details, see the MoMo Boston site. We hear that over 200 people are already registered, so we’re looking forward to seeing you there too!

Songs and Photos from South by Southwest (SXSW)

sxsw graphic

Every year music artists, filmmakers and techies descend on Austin, Texas for the massive showcase event: South by Southwest (SXSW). This year is no different with over 700 participating musicians. If you’re a music buff, it’s a rare opportunity to see all these great bands in one place, but it’s impossible to personally catch them all. You’re likely to miss what could be your next favorite band, while listening to something you’ll probably never like. Luckily in this new age of Internet file sharing, a Bit Torrent file has been posted that features a song from each of the 764 bands at SXSW. This must be illegal, right? No worries. All of these tracks are digital rights management (DRM) free, so they’re just a click away. Once you find a couple of songs you like, you can make your own ringtone for free from any of these tracks.

If you found yourself wishing that you were in Austin, but couldn’t quite justify the time or cost, then check out the SXSW stream of candid shots on, a new mobile photo sharing community. Some people at SXSW are snapping photos using their mobile phones and immediately posting them, so it’ll give you a flavor of what’s happening in real-time. Check out SnapMyLife from time to time to see what you can look forward to next year when you actually get there yourself.
