Norfolk State Athletics Unveils New iPhone App

The Norfolk State University athletics department unveiled Monday a new mobile application for iOS-powered devices that will enhance the fan experience for Spartan supporters.

The free NSU Spartans app, which is now available for download in the Apple store, was built by long-time NSU multimedia partner and web site provider SIDEARM Sports. The app expands on the current version, which was launched in 2013, by adding a streamlined social media feed for Twitter and Instagram updates and easier-to-navigate headlines, videos and photo galleries. Fans will also be able to follow along with live media coverage through the app, including live statistics, video and audio feeds for games where those services will be provided.

Additional features that will be rolled out in the coming month include the ability for fans to customize their alerts according to their favorite Spartan athletic teams and players. Fans will also be able to choose the types of alerts they will receive, such as breaking news alerts or when an NSU game begins or ends.

A similar enhanced app for Android users is in development and will be launched later in the fall.
