You’ve probably noticed that, once again, my blog has been a little slow the past month or so. I have a pretty good excuse though – I have been working away on an exciting new mobile project at Schematic. We once again joined forces with the fine people at Turner Sports (the same group that we worked with on PGA Tour Shot Tracker), this time to be the first team ever to launch the same application for both the Android and iPhone platforms on the same day.
The application I am speaking of is NBA Game Time; it has already begun receiving some great reviews less than 24 hours after launch.
This time around I wasn’t leading up the iPhone development, but rather the Android development – a big first for me. I learned a ton along the way and will definitely be sharing my thoughts and findings in a thorough blog post sometime in the near future. The credits for the two applications are as follows:
Concept/Design: Turner Sports
iPhone Development: Turner Sports
Android Development: Schematic
Coordinating the development of the same application on two completely different platforms was certainly a bit challenging, but the end result was definitely worth the effort. Both applications are free downloads from the Android Market and iTunes App Store, respectively.
We’ll be rolling out some updates in the weeks to come for supporting playoffs. In the meantime, if you happen to try one of the apps out, I would love to hear your feedback!
NBA Game Time is Gizmodo’s Android App of the Week!
