Ahh, two of my favorite things, Apple Computers and MLB. The people at Macworld have reported that the MLB app for the iPhone, which was previewed at Apple’s WWDC Conference, will retail for $4.99…for the rest of the season.
According to Gould, the MLB At Bat application will be available as soon as the App Store launches and will cost $4.99 “for the rest of this season.” It’s too early to tell whether the price will change next year, or if users will need to buy a new version of the program for each new season. (Other MLB online services, such as MLB.tv and Gameday Audio, are sold as annual or monthly subscriptions.)
Looks like an annual cost of about 10 dollars a year, maybe? Who knows, I feel that the price point is perfect to try it out for the rest of the season. I’ve been waiting for this ever since Pickleview went south and never really worked the way it did last season.
For people who dont know. This is going to be an application you download from the new App Store on your iPhone. The App Store is going to go live later this summer after the iPhone 3G is released. You will not need wifi, edge or 3G to launch the program, but you’ll need one of those to get a live feed of the games you’re keeping an eye on.
