Our Baseball Trade Rumors iPhone app is available in the iTunes store for $2.99; you can check it out here. The app was recently revamped to allow filtering of the news page by team and transaction, and of course you can customize it to receive push notifications for news on your favorite teams and players. We released version 2.0.1 this week, which allows users to receive player and team notifications for transactions only. Keep up with the Winter Meetings madness with the Baseball Trade Rumors app!
how about a android version!
Is there an ad-supported free version?
Guess what? The $2.99 you pay for this app, gets you an AD supported app. So no, There is no free version.
When will it be out for ANDROID ????
Any news on an app for Androids?
Any chance of getting an Android or WP7 release sometime this offseason?

How about you create an Android app instead of tweaking your iPhone one?? I’ve been waiting forever for an Android mlbtraderumors app
I wish the Android app was ready sooner, but the work we’ve done on the iPhone app has nothing to do with Android’s timeline.
Patiently waiting to throw $3 at you for an Android app…
About 6 months ago you talked about an Android app is it ever coming or are you having to many issues working it?
Anything for Android devices?
Will you have something for Droids as well?
Android still in development, no ETA yet unfortunately.

It might be time to invest some more time/energy on the android app. The amount of time you’ve spent on it with no results is mind-boggling to your users
I don’t find it mind-boggling. I have better things to think about.
Really? You sit around wondering why there is no MLBTR app for the Android market? It boggles your mind? Hm. Ok then.

$2.99 and iphone only? pass.
Why pay when it’s just as easy to check out the web site? For the advent of a widget? Especially without one for Android…
Yeah really. And I am posting this from my phone right now
agreed. mobile web works fine. I can’t justify any reason to pay $2.99 for an information app.
I’d probably pay the $3 to avoid the ads. With the ads the page load times are probably 10 times longer and sometimes force-closes my browser.

you must not be familiar with adblock plus…
Then you would be wasting that $3 because The app still has ads.
There is no comparison between the iPhone an any android phone having tried both (and a bb torch) the iPhone is superior in every way possible (except bbm for blackberry but really who cares)
iPhone is crap. Your opinions suck.
Probably true, but some people don’t feel like being chained to a $35/month data package for 2 years or shelling out $800 for a phone.
I have an unlimited plan, and am on an Android device. I am also on AT&T. I came from iphone 3G, then 3GS, then 4G. Android better phone and I can actually tweak it however I want, LEGALLY!! Also bigger community to help with problems, instead of visit Genius bar.
iPhones are: Slower, weaker, 4G incompatible, less user-friendly, and overprices because of the apple on their back.
Have you ever used an iPhone? It is by no means slower. It’s interface is so easy to use yet much more advanced. The 4g isn’t a huge concern I’ve never had to wait more than a few seconds for anything to load. Android phones are not cool face it, I’m getting that information from people who actually use them all the time and black berry is pretty good other than being slow and glitch and not as advanced. Once again I’ll restate that fact that I’ve used all three for an extended period of time. Also about being weaker I’ve used my iPhone for almost a month now with no case what so ever and there isn’t a single scratch on it.
iPhone has it’s own type of bbm now: iMessaging. Has for a while now.
I know except not enough ppl have an iPhone so I rarely ever use it
Well you can’t say BlackBerry has an edge in one aspect because iPhone doesn’t have it, when it in fact does. At least you know it does have it, so perhaps you just worded it wrong.
That said, the way I see it: BlackBerry > iPhone = Android.
I just wish Apple would stop making new models like the seasons change. In 14 months when my term is up, I’ll be buying the 27GS model.
bbm is way better than imessanging in a bunch of ways but the main one is that way more ppl use bbm. BUT overall iphone is a much better phone. As for the whole stop making new models thing blackberry does the same thing. Only difference is it has three phones that it constantly updates not just one. Really tell me the major difference between the curve and bold why do they need both those phones??
MLBTR is the absolute last place I wanted to see the never-ending iPhone/Android argument.
Newsflash: Some people like iPhones, some people like Android phones. Everyone has their own reasons for using one or the other, and they probably aren’t inclined to switch, so there’s no reason to try to prove to them that the other one is better.
When will it be availble on my Nextel Direct Connect or Nokia Flip Phone?!
2.99??? Really? When I can simply go on Safari and look at the site? No way.
I would get it but I already have my twitter setup to text me when there is a new update for my team. Would love to download it but just don’t see the point in spending money for it.
+1 for android app…
“Like” this post if you would be willing to pay $3 if I created a prettied up android app based on the rss feed.
MLB finally got me a version of their app for WP7. Will MLBTR be next? I will buy it! I promise!
to everyone complaining about having to “pay” for information. they way i look at it is that this site has done a great job on compiling information from so many different sources and providing it to us so quickly and cleanly. A $3 “donation” as a thanks is not that serious, plus its not like its free for them to run and maintain the server this site runs on.
and on another note…ANDROID PLEASE!!!
The money they make on advertising supports what they do.
I was someone who saw the app as useless as well until I bought it for the heck of it because someone gave me an iTunes gift card that they had no use for.
It’s a lot faster to use the app and I love the push notification part of it. The push notifications are sent out within minutes of the actual post going to the site so it’s not like a lot of other apps where there are huge time lapses between when info comes out and when you get the notification.
And as Raymond said above me, throwing these guys a few bucks for all the hard work they do for free is a nice thing to do.
I’m typing this through the app, and it’s absolutely amazing. Tim and I had a little back-and-forth and my problem was fixed. Easily worth the three bucks for me.
And really guys, it’s THREE DOLLARS.
the push notifications are well worth the $3… but there’s no excuse to having ads on a paid app
Step 1: Sign up for Twitter
Step 2: Download the free Twitter app
Step 3: Follow MLBTR (every story is posted on Twitter)
It’s that easy.
I have an Android. I just go to the MLBtraderumors site fo’ free!
I’m with you. I can access anything I can from my home computer. Works great on my Android. I would probably by the App anyway because it’s only $3, but I’m not too worried about when it comes out.
If there’s no value for you, don’t buy it. Pretty simple.
How about you fix the comments on the app so they don’t repeat 10.000 times
