BUCCANEERS LAUNCH FREE, OFFICIAL MOBILE APP FOR IPHONE AND ANDROID

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the launch of their new, official mobile smartphone app for both iPhone and Android operating systems, designed to allow fans unprecedented access to team news on the go, with up-to-the-minute information, statistics and other content.

"We're excited to be launching our free app as our fans are eagerly awaiting the kickoff of the Bucs' football season," said Buccaneers Director of Communications Jonathan Grella. "We're constantly looking for ways to leverage technology to enhance fan experience, in addition to our football operations. This app has been created to enable our fans to stay connected with their favorite team on game day and every day."

Earlier this year, the Buccaneers became innovative leaders by utilizing iPads for Draft preparation, playbooks and game planning.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Official Mobile App was designed in partnership with YinzCam, Inc., and will provide real-time Buccaneers news updates, along with injury reports, player statistics, team standings, scores, press conferences, and photo albums. In addition, a special Fan Zone area of the app includes numerous ways for Buccaneers fans to connect and engage with the team, from links to the team's social networking feeds to a gameday check-in feature using Foursquare and Gowalla. There are also interactive stadium maps, giving fans attending games at Raymond James Stadium the ability to quickly find the closest concessions, merchandise, guest service centers and more.

The Buccaneers official mobile app is currently available for Android and iPhone smartphones. Visit the Apple App Store or Android Market to download the free Buccaneers mobile app.
