For a large number of fans, what happens to their favorite teams off the fields and courts is just as important as the action that takes place in the games. Now with a single app users can follow all the latest rumors about trades, cuts, waivers, hirings, firings and just about everything else dealing with roster changes in the Trade Rumors app.
The origin of this app began with a web site put together as a hobby by a fan who loved the baseball "hot stove" season. He poured over Internet sites looking for information on all the player movements during the off season. His hobby grew into a full time job and now his site MLBTradeRumors.com is one of the most wide read sites of its kind on the web. It is used by fans, reporters, and team officials to keep up with player movement. The site compiles reports from other web sources including well known insiders such as Ken Rosenthal of Fox, Buster Olney and Jason Starke of ESPN and Hall of Fame reporter Peter Gammons.
The baseball site was successful and grew into similar sites for football and basketball. Now you can access all of this information in this single free universal app. The other sites are ProFootballRumors.com and HoopsRumors.com.
Users can choose to receive news feeds from all three sports or just the one or two that holds the most interest. Additionally users can select news feeds dealing with their favorite teams and just about every player active in MLB, the NFL, and the NBA.
The app contains all of the stories posted on the three web sites and is separated by sports and teams or players. Just tap on the story you want to read or slide the graphics left and right to find the one that interests you. Then a single tap opens the story for your perusal. Once you read that story you can slide the stories left and right again to read more without going back to the main page. Trade Rumors also offers users the ability to share stories with friends through all the major social networking sites plus email, texts and more.
You won't get game stories and scores in this app but you do receive a compilation of information from some of the most outstanding reporters working on the web. So if trades, waivers, roster changes, etc. are of interest to you, this app should be one you download. I have used the original sites for years and was thrilled when I found I can now get all that same great information the Trade Rumors app. It is now on my iPhone and iPad.
