MLB Coverage for Windows 8

Baseball season has ended, but March is just around the corner! If you love Major League Baseball as much as I do, you’ll want to keep informed on the latest in MLB coverage with comprehensive up-to-date information, even during off-season.  Alex Brown, a local developer in Arkansas, published the MLB Coverage app for Windows 8 to address this very need.

DO IT: Download this app in the Windows Store for FREE!

The MLB Coverage app features:

  • History of Major League Baseball
  • MLB News Updated Daily
  • MLB Videos
  • Current photos dealing with MLB

In particular, I really like the Live Tiles feature of this app, which allows me to keep up-to-date on the latest MLB news directly from the Windows 8 Start Screen!
