More than once in the past I might have let it slip that I am a huge fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is why I am excited to present this news, the Buccaneers have released an official iPhone and Android app for the smartphone users among its fans. According to the Buccaneers, “The new Buccaneers Mobile app for smartphones puts updated and up-to-the-minute information and stats at the fingertips of iPhone and Droid users at all times”.

The team continues to be an innovative leader in the NFL, as we reported earlier they are the first team to use iPads for playbooks and game-planning.
