Bringing Your Smartphone to the Game

Grab your favorite jersey, a foam finger and your smartphone. Football season is underway and nothing beats putting on your face paint and heading to the game.

Before kickoff, pump up fellow tailgaters and blast Slacker Radio through a Jawbone BIG JAMBOX speaker. Portable, light and loud, BIG JAMBOX is a Bluetooth-enabled device that syncs with a smartphone and is completely wireless. You can control the music from up to 33 feet away to make sure everyone’s ready before storming the stadium.

You can let your friends see what they are missing by uploading pictures to share on your Facebook or Twitter page.

And of course, before your team takes the field, you need to plan runs to the concession stands and bathroom breaks in advance. The Houston Texans offer fans an app that includes an interactive map of their stadium with searchable concession stands and amenities. The app also includes a “digital keepsake,” which allows you take a picture of your game time moment and have it superimposed on the screen at the stadium. Check to see if your team does well; it might make the difference between witnessing history and waiting in line for a hot dog.

When the stadium scoreboard isn’t telling you the whole story, try NFL Mobile for stats and news from other games around the league and to track your Fantasy Football players.

So take your smartphone to the game and cheer your team on to glory.
