I woke up this morning to a Chicago Fire message on my FB wall that the MLS iPhone app was released this morning. As a Droid user, I was initially grumbling, until I read down to the bottom of the message and it said Android was coming in 24-48 hours, which, as late as I slept, it was already in the Market!!

My favorite thing so far: you select your club, and it fires up an audio recording of supporters chanting! LOVE IT!! Way to recognize the supporters MLS App! It’s tough for me, out here in MLS wasteland because now this app is forcing me to choose, is my phone for Sporting KC, Fire, or perhaps my favorite supporters, but least convenient, Portland Timbers? Only my Droid knows for sure!! (You can switch teams pretty easily, and the list is alphabetical, so if you’re for Vancouver, flip in reverse order!)

According to the Fire’s release, you can expect:

  • Live game streaming (via MatchDay Live available through in-app purchase)
  • Realtime highlights
  • Redesigned Matchcenter and improved statistical display
  • Matchday and newspaper modes (iPad)
  • Customized homescreen allowing users to follow their favorite Club
  • AirPlay allows users to send all MLS video to their television through Apple TV
  • Facebook chats
  • Customizable alert system
  • Go check it out. It is fast becoming my favorite app, and it’s not even in season yet!
