So you're a high school sports fan, right? If you didn't already know, HighSchoolOT.com has a brand new app for that.
If you had the old HighSchoolOT.com app, you'll need to delete it and download the new and improved app.
When you first open the new app you will see the latest 20 stories. Inside each story, users will have access to comments, related content, photos, slideshows and videos.
The new app includes a new look for the live HighSchoolOT.com scoreboard, the standings and schedules for each school and conference and the "Report Scores" tool.
School pages, video, slideshows, "Our Take" blogs, recruiting news, Extra Effort videos and Twitter are all accessible from the app.
So what's new? Like the redesigned version of HighSchoolOT.com, the app includes sections for each sport, including – baseball, basketball, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field, volleyball and wrestling.
If you're at an event and capture interesting video or a cool photo, you can now share that with HighSchoolOT.com directly from the app. This allows our users to help alert us to anything newsworthy that may happen at an area school.
Speaking of video, the new HighSchoolOT.com app supports live video playback, so when "Football Friday" is on or when we're streaming a special event online, you'll be able to watch it on your phone.
And finally, under the "More" tab you'll find settings where you can pick what page you land on when you open the app. If you're most interested in scores, you can program your app to automatically open to the scoreboard page when you open it. Or if you like to know the latest news, have your app open to the homepage.
When you download the app, you will also have the ability to receive push alerts from HighSchoolOT.com when breaking news happens.
