[REQ] iPhone App for TP2

I am not sure how hard this is to do and from my limited knowledge of coding I can imagine it being a pain in the rear, but I still wanted to see if someone out there could do this. Can someone use the following case study http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee355030.aspx as example to port mlb.com At Bat 2009 to a Windows Mobile application? Currently there are no MLB streaming programs out there for Windows Mobile so us baseball fans have to rely on just refreshing a browser every 15 seconds to see how a game is going.

I bought MLB At Bat for my wife's iPhone and the TV part of it is pretty awesome, only problem is she doesn't let me watch when she is playing with all the other gimic applications on the iPhone. Having this program ported to the TP2's large hi res screen would be awesome.

Hopefully this is not just a pipe dream.

Re: [REQ] iPhone App for TP2

The problem is not with writing an app like that - it is not that hard. The problem is with getting content for it. This info (especially real time data) is a pretty hot marketable commodity and aside from doing screen scraping it is not easily available. For example, MLB posts real time data in XML format to their server which anyone can access but using it for any distributed application (free or not) is a violation of their terms of use: http://gd2.mlb.com/components/copyright.txt

So whoever writes this app needs to talk to them about licensing and access fees and all the other legal jazz. If content would be available for free (or a small reasonable fee) then writing a parser application would be pretty straight forward.
