TeamPages launches new iPhone App!
TeamPages is happy to announce that the first app was just approved and is now available for download.
You can get it here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/teampages/id670 … or find it by searching “teampages” in the app store.
A few things to note:
There are still a couple bugs that we’ll be fixing before making a more formal announcement, specifically in replying to messages and viewing maps.
Please keep in mind that this is version 1.0 which means the app is still very much in its infancy. TeamPages is hoping to roll out a bunch of new features prior to the fall season and your feedback will go along way in shaping what we develop next for our mobile apps.
Sorry Android users, just for iPhone right now. The Android app is in the works and we’re hoping to have it ready to go for September.
Get your teams to download it and keep on track of their season schedules and use it to message each other!
