With the 2011 U.S. Open Tennis Championships getting under way, fans and fanatics alike are sure to be hunting for the latest scores and news updates coming out of the tournament. With a free iPhone app you can have all the updates you desire. You will even get a free radio feed of the matches, as well as a video highlights and a live video on the final weekend.
First you will need to install the official 2011 U.S. Open Tennis Championships app from the App Store; you can find it here [iTunes link].
Once the app is installed you will have near-instant access to all the U.S. Open information your tennis heart can handle. Whether you want the latest video highlights, to view the schedule, or read up on players, the official 2011 U.S. Open app has all of the information at your fingertips.
You can listen to a live radio feed by tapping on the Radio option and then pressing play. It works over both Wi-Fi and 3G. One thing we noticed while using the app is that the radio will continue to stream no matter what portion of the app you are in, but once you leave the app, the radio stream stops working.
We were unable to find any settings for any type of push alerts, but the app description states you will receive them for breaking news and player updates. It may just be too early on in the tournament for any type of alerts.
Hopefully this great app will help you keep up to date on your favorite player(s) and the latest scores. Remember that during finals weekends and Labor Day there will be live video streams of matches in the app.
