NBA Game Time's iPhone and iPad apps have received great updates adding support for the 2013-2014 season, optimization for Apple's iOS 7, and additional features and content for both paying subscribers and iDevice owners using the apps' free service. Both applications, NBA Game Time 2013-2014 and NBA Game Time for iPad 2013-2014, can be downloaded free of charge in the App Store. The redesign for iOS 7 added with version 5.1 (pictured above) looks great, and the apps now fit in well with the seventh iteration of Apple's mobile OS. As you can see, font and icons are more minimalistic, and the user interface looks cleaner and crisper. Of course, optimization for iOS 7 also means both apps will be more stable running under the newer mobile operating system. However, design changes and iOS 7 optimization aren't the only features added in NBA Game Time 5.1. NBA League Pass subscribers can now access additional content in the updated applications, including:
There is also one additional feature added for all users, regardless of one's subscription status:
- NBA League Pass subscribers will now be able to enjoy both the home and away TV broadcasts from every game.
- NBA League Pass subscribers will now be able to enjoy archives from each nationally broadcast game.
- NBA League Pass subscribers can now listen to home and away radio broadcasts from every game.
- League Pass Push Notifications now let NBA League Pass users know when games they can watch get exciting.
Finally, minor performance improvements should enhance the apps further. As mentioned, NBA Game Time 2013-2014 for the iPhone and iPod touch is available free of charge in the App Store, as is the iPad counterpart, NBA Game Time for iPad 2013-2014.
