CBS Sports Pro Football App for iPad Suits Up

CBS Sports hopes iPad owners are ready for some football, as it released the CBS Sports Pro Football App for iPad to coincide with the start of the National Football League season.

The app — which is also available for the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry — offers live scores, play-by-play, breaking news, standings, video, and fantasy-football commentary.

Speaking of fantasy football, owners can use the CBS Sports Pro Football App for iPad to manage their teams, check scores, set lineup, and add or drop players.

CBS Mobile senior vice president and general manager Rob Gelick said:

Whether you are a dedicated fantasy player, or a pro football fan who wants the latest news about your favorite team, the CBS Sports Pro Football app for iPad delivers a great experience for everyone. The iPad version is the newest addition to the already extensive footprint of the CBS Sports Pro Football app. Clearly, given the rapid consumption of the app out of the gate, this is a desirable, useful product with broad appeal.
