University of Washington football iPhone App Available

The Seattle Times is rolling out its first paid iPhone application, a new mobile app that allows sports fans to track scores, stats and news related to University of Washington football. The app, which includes stories and Tweets from Seattle Times sports reporter Bob Condotta, is available for $2.99.

In addition to Husky football news, the app also includes a special section featuring the Twitter feed of Heisman Trophy candidate and UW quarterback Jake Locker.

“The Seattle Times is pleased to enter this market with a product we are proud of,” said David Boardman, Executive Editor and Senior Vice President of The Seattle Times. “Husky football fans will love this app. They will now be able to take the Huskies with them wherever they go and stay constantly connected throughout the 2010 season.”

The Times already offers a free mobile app for general news, but the latest offering marks the first time that the state's largest daily newspaper has experimented with a paid application in a niche category such as sports.
