iPhone App Now Available

Just in time for the offseason, our iPhone app is now available!  It is listed as Baseball Trade Rumors in the app store and costs $2.99.  You can search the store or just click this link.  The app has been described as "beyond belief" by legendary journalist Peter Gammons.

The bread and butter of the app is the customizable push notifications.  By default it sends an alert to your iPhone for all transactions, and you can also add alerts for any combination of players, teams, and leagues you desire.  If you want to be the first to know where Cliff Lee is headed, who the Tigers are looking at, or anything else hot stove-related, this app can accommodate you.

The headlines page of the app shows our 25 latest posts, no ads, easily refreshed.  Individual posts with hyperlinks can be viewed, of course.  You can also leave comments on MLBTradeRumors.com through the app.  Check it out today!

    Ditto to jeffy.

    I hardly know anyone who still has an iphone. The few that do complain all the time.

    • Of all the people with iPhones (myself included), I hardly know anyone who complains about their iPhone.

        Good for you, Josh.

        My company dropped iPhones in favor of Droid Xs and Droid 2s.

        I dropped iPhone.

        My wife dropped iPhone.

        My sister and brother-in-law dropped iPhone.

        My sister-in-law and her family dropped iPhone.

        My three closest friends dropped iPhone.

        The only person close to me who still has one is my brother-in-law and he only still has it because it is a company phone – and he used to be the biggest iPhone cheerleader on the planet. On vacation this past July he spent hours playing with my Droid X and contemplated ‘accidentally’ dropping his iPhone in the lake.

        In the end, I was just making an observation. Literally 95% of the people I know have Android phones.

          wow and people say that iphone users are smug assholes.

      • that’s because they dont want to make uncle steve angry.

        No complaints on iphones..really? How about the grip of death? You know where everyone had to get an ipod bumper because if you gripped the phone you’d automatically lose reception and your call would be dropped. You never had that issue and don’t know 1 person who did?

        • Encarnacion's Parrot 5 years ago

          I’ve never had that problem. Then again, I guess there’s too many idiots that ‘grip’ their phone to death.

          iPhone and Android are both excellent phones.

      Still know a lot of people that have the iPhone, the complaints I hear are not about the phone but rather about At&t. I’ve used the droid before, and it is IMO a little harder to use than the iPhone. But I might think different if I had used it for longer.

    I’m ready for my BlackBerry app now ’cause reading posts from my phone….NOT happening.

    • You can try mlbtraderumors.mobi

      • invader3k 5 years ago

        That is a nice website on my Blackberry, but it doesn’t let you view reader posts, which is kind of a bummer.

      • Infield Fly 5 years ago

        ↑ What he said.

        C’mon Tim…help a BlackBerry usin’ baseball junkie out! 😉

  3. When’s the Motorola Razor app coming out?

  4. ANDROID PLEASE! thank you

    Will this be an App that we have to buy again next year?

  6. riotmute 5 years ago

    No Android, please

    To everyone bashing the iphone, good for you. I love my iPhone. Grip of death really only effects lefties. Get over it. This post is not for a competition between os’. Now let’s stay on topic on the app itself and not turn this into a stupid flame war.

    • cubs223425 5 years ago

      What about righties trying to take notes of something while on the phone?

      Also, the grip of death is a hardware issue, not an OS issue.

      • wickedkevin 5 years ago

        I know it’s a hardware issue, I did not say it was an os issue. But people are turning this into an os competition. All you are doing is adding to the flame war. Bring it to the mac forums.

    Android please

  9. Why is it baseball trade rumors though?

  10. dire straits 5 years ago

    You guys are really trying to sell this, huh?

  11. I will buy it for android. Just Sayin. THe demand is out there, Tim.

  12. Peter Gammons like this, which begs the question of whether the app gives updates on teams other than the Boston Red Sox. I can train a parrot to tell me “Casey Kelly is great!” :)

    Checking in for android as well. Apple still doesnt know what a widget is but that debate is for another website. Andoid app would do well.

  14. cubs223425 5 years ago

    Is no one going to ask for a Windows Phone 7 app?

  15. Rhendricks 5 years ago

    I’m sitting lonely cheering for the Palm Web OS app..

  16. are people really fighting over phones? lol. i have an android phone and an iphone for work… yup, i just divided by zero.

  17. iPhone rocks BABY!!

    Thanks for loving the best people TIM!!!!!!!

    Whhhhhhooooooottttt!!!!

    Sorry, Android people you’re not invited :(

    Don’t be sad you still have your droid.

  18. Todd Smith 5 years ago

    …but I have a MLB Trade Rumors app, and you don’t.

  19. Todd Smith 5 years ago

    I don’t have to go anywhere. The app notifies me when news breaks. You still sound a little inferior here. Keep trying.

  20. Todd Smith 5 years ago

    LOL! So far, your argument for why Droid is better than iPhone is because you have the ability to use a web browser and power your phone off. Awesome!

  21. cubs223425 5 years ago

    It’s more of less processor usage, battery life, and a phone that doesn’t need accessories to be a phone.

  22. Todd Smith 5 years ago

    It’s more of a rationalization of your purchase thing, really.

  23. cubs223425 5 years ago

    Is that supposed to actually mean something?

  24. Todd Smith 5 years ago

    It means that the only flaw with the iPhone that people can honestly find is the fact that they don’t own one. Therefore, they have to constantly belittle it to try to justify the phone they did buy. It’s nothing new. Xbox sucks…because I bought a PS3. Windows sucks…because I bought a Mac. Nikon sucks…because I bought a Canon. It’s a surefire sign of low self-confidence. Being a Cubs fan, I’m sure you can understand this.

  25. cubs223425 5 years ago

    Insulting Cubs fans…because you’re a troll.

    And that’s HARDLY the only complaint. The iPhone has a glass back that is prone to breaking with some cases. People have called the included earphones awful. You need a case just to make phone calls. It lacks Flash support.

    There are legitimate complaints, but people usually turn to the flame war complaining over nothing.

  26. Untrue. The only flaw I find with an iPhone, or a Droid for that matter, is that they’re overpriced and quickly obsolete bricks. Hence, I prefer to use a phone for phone-things and a computer for computer things. Maybe someday when there is a portable device that doesn’t have a dinky little screen and doesn’t force me to type on a mini-keyboard, I’ll change my mind. But until then, I’ll always view them as a good way for a company to make money on proprietary junk that charges you money for things you can get for free on other non-proprietary platforms… with a small screen.
