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!

Please note: Version 1.0.1 fixed a bug that was affecting iPhone 3G and iPod Touch users.  If you have one of these devices and already purchased the app, just take the steps to buy it again and you will be able to download the update for free.

    In all seriousness, Buy the app just to help out this site. Most of us visit the site multiple times a day, hell even some of us have it as their homepage. The app is worth the 3 bucks, but even if you don’t think it is, help out the guys that have never once asked us for money.

    LOVE the app. Well done… use it constantly. Love the push notifications.
    Bought to support the site, but very pleasantly surprised at how good… and how useful, the app is. Grateful to have it for the coming months of hot stove action.

    • Awesome! Please write a review if you get a chance.

      • Drew 5 years ago

        Gladly. Just posted. Not sure why there are so many haters… totally unwarranted, but must come with the territory. Don’t let them discourage you.. it’s a very useful app.

        • Thank you! I think those who wrote bad reviews were experiencing the bug we fixed. Unfortunately some of these people did not contact the support email, so I wasn’t able to talk to them personally.

          • wickedkevin 5 years ago

            Love the push notifications. Can you just set it up so the push notifications stay on the app if I didn’t look? Like the little red number I mean.

  16. adding another request for Android.

    I love all the android users comlaining. You all knew when you were buying your phone that you were getting a better PHONE, but were also getting worse app support. You made that decision, so don’t blame the developers for going with the popular platform first. I’m sure mlbtraderumors will eventually have an android app, but the iPhone versions of most apps will come first. Sorry. Thats what you signed up fr. Maybe in another year after the android has gained enough popularity, the apps will be simultaneously released.

      “Many carriers and manufacturers combined to boost sales of Android phones above sales of rival Apple’s iPhone in the third quarter. According to new data issued by market research firm NPD Group, Android-powered devices took 44 percent of sales, compared to 23 percent for the iPhone.

      Android sales rose 11 percent throughout the second quarter, while iPhone sales rose 1 percent during the same period.

      Market analysts said the cause of the increase is the addition of new devices to the Android family.

      “The HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid X and other new high-end Android devices have been gaining momentum at carriers that traditionally have been strong [Research in Motion Ltd.] distributors, and the recent introduction of the BlackBerry Torch has done little to stem the tide,” said NPD Group executive director of industry analysis Ross Rubin in a press statement.”

      — Keep thinking you made the smart move overpaying for your crappy phone. It earned you style points a few years ago, now you have a dinosaur.

        Nonetheless, a dinosaur with the MLBtraderumors app

      • Rman0726 5 years ago

        I’m not debating what phone is better. I’m talking about from a pure app standpoint, the iPhone is clearly #1, and honestly, the Android is over a year away from even being allowed in the same sentence. Sorry.

        Sure the Android phones might have outsold the iPhone in Q3, but overall sales, the iPhone is still millions more sold. As I said, the Android is catching up and maybe in another year, they will have caught up. But as of now, the iPhone has more users, and has a much more developed app “scene”, and as such, developers will focus on developing for it first.

        But as I always say in sports, the best judges are the ones betting on the games, as they are the ones actually putting their own money on what they say, not the random fan on a chat room or message board. So don’t let me be the only source of this information. Just check out the App Store on each device, and you will see where where the developers are putting their money into development. And it’s for the iOS. When it comes to resource issues, they are developing for the iOS first and foremost, as that is where the money is RIGHT NOW. Maybe a year later it will be different. But the APP DEVELOPMENT on the iPhone is #1, and it ain’t close.

        • JaySchu 5 years ago

          And I’m saying it’s a misallocation of resources to focus on a market that is already flooded, especially when it has declining market share. The point is to stay ahead of the curve, not blindly follow everyone else into oblivion. The iPhone has a more well established app scene solely because it hit the market first, not because it has a superior platform. I dislike the iPhone because I dislike the closed system that is Apple and I despise AT&Ts network and pricing. Clearly I’m not alone.

          • Rman0726 5 years ago

            I completely understand your perspective, and I even agree that the newer Android phones are superior hardware-wise, and depending on your preference, OS-wise as well. But as you point out, the iPhone app scene has been around for almost 4 years, and hit the market well in advance of the Android, and thus has a bigger app customer base, as this point in time. The point is, in this CURRENT market, it would be stupid to not develop for the iPhone. It would also be stupid to not develop for the Android. But if you only have the resources to do one, you have to do the iPhone first, due to its sheer potential app customer base. And then move on to the Android. Doing it that way, allows the developers to ride the current wave of iPhone popularity, while at the same time still developing for the Android.

            But that’s what you sign up for when you buy an Android. You sign up for a superior phone (hey… they are 6 months newer hardware, they should be better), that is still in its infancy app wise.
