It is football week! On Monday, we introduced the Notre Dame Gameday app for the BCS football championship. Today, I’m sharing an app of the week video featuring the University of Oklahoma Sooner Gameday app. The Sooners used Digital Publishing Suite to create their weekly gameday program for football games on both the iPad and the iPhone. Their app is a great example of taking a successful print piece and adding interactive features available for mobile devices, heightening excitement around the content.
Some of my favorite features:
- The title page opens with a football announcer and cheers from the crowd (video overlay). I feel the enthusiasm already…
- The stats and information on the players go deep. Scrolling frames allow for longer bios and more stats on a single page.
- Fans can watch sponsored videos of great plays from past games: The Power Play, Catch of the Game, Delivery of the Half, and Teeth-Rattling Hit of the Game
- An audio timeline of last week’s match highlights game-changing plays.
Check out the Sooners app of the week video to see how DPS apps can deepen fans’ engagement and excitement for their favorite team.
