The Premier Basketball League announced late last week that it is going to be a lot easier to follow the stars of your favorite PBL team next year. For those of you fortunate enough to have Apple's iPhone, you can now download the official PBL App from the App Store.
"Our league has taken some big steps in the off season, and we think the iPhone application is among the biggest advances we've made," said CEO Tom Doyle. "Access to our teams, stats and players has now been made even more available thanks to the iPhone app."
With the help of this App you will be able to track individual and team scoring, schedules, and coach's interviews. This latest venture in technology is just one of the many platforms the PBL has slated to debut before the tip off of the PBL's third season in January.
Fans with iPhones may access the new PBL application by visiting the iPhone App Store on the iPhone or with your iTunes account.
