The Pro series of sports apps for Windows Phone 7 is pretty decent, consisting of apps for the Mango platform that let users stay apprised of the latest happenings in their favorite sports. We have already covered NFL Pro ‘12 and NBA Pro ‘12 from the series, and now, another member has joined this family. Released to welcome the arrival of the Major League Baseball season is MLB Pro ‘12. The app is everything the previous two apps were. It lets baseball fans stay up to date with the latest scores, news and everything else related to MLB. The app also has the feature to allow you to make predictions for every fixture, and compete against fellow users.
To make MLB Pro ‘12 more personalized, you can create a new profile specifically for the app. The profile does not require you to enter any personal information; all you have to do is to choose your favorite MLB team, and set a nickname. The content MLB Pro ‘12 offers will be heavily based on the selection of your favorite team. By swiping to the right, you will arrive at the Live Scores section of the app, where the final scores of recent fixtures can be viewed. Tapping a score tile will take you to its dedicated match page, where you can get detailed score sheets, match summary and other relevant stats. Similarly, after you have chosen the region in which you are interested the most, you can see the Standings table and view each team’s individual performance as well.
MLB Pro ‘12 has a dedicated page for each team, and on that page you can see profiles of each player (sorted on the basis of the position they play in) from within the roster section, while the schedule menu displays the upcoming matches for the team. You can also broadcast your own thoughts regarding any game from the team’s page as well. The fantasy prediction feature of MLB Pro ‘12 makes using the app a lot of fun; it is always nice to see your team winning and increasing your fantasy chances as well.
MLB Pro ‘12 is a must-have app if you are a baseball fan and own a WP7 device. You can grab it for free (the app is ad-supported) from the Windows Phone Marketplace. The link provided below will take you to its web Marketplace page.
