We’ve been running running a few App Store roundups covering applications announced for the iPhone App Store, but as TUAW’s resident seamhead I can’t help but call one out for special attention. It was demoed at the WWDC keynote and now Macworld has a close look at the upcoming MLB At Bat application. It will be available at launch and provide near real time “wireless score access and in-game highlights for every game on the MLB schedule” for only $4.99 for the rest of the season.
Apparently the video highlights will be available in two versions: one high-bandwidth version for wifi and a lower bandwidth version for EDGE (they haven’t said which version the 3G iPhone will load). For the future they’re looking into bringing the Gameday service to the iPhone which opens the possibility of Gameday Audio. For the real baseball fanatics out there this would be an absolutely killer app, especially for those of us away from our home team’s broadcast area. Imagine being able to listen to any game on your iPhone from anywhere; that’s close to baseball nirvana. And though things are looking rather bad at the moment: Go ‘Stos!
