Muskego Goes Mobile
None

With the recent explosion and obsession with mobile devices, website creators are scrambling for way to get their content onto as many of their devices as possible. We are all busy and don't have time to sit at desk every time we want to catch up with the Muskego Hitmen and what is happening in the I.F.L.

In our efforts to keep up with the Jones', we are proud to release our very own touch enabled mobile website! No more keyboard, forget about a mouse, and don't even think about printing our a roster. You don't need that stuff anymore - We've go you covered. Now you can take everything Hitmen where ever you go. 

You shouldn't have to do anything special to get at the new mobile site, just visit m.muskegohitmen.com from your mobile device and you'll be taken there auto-magically.  

We currently support these modern Touch enabled devices

  • iPhone 3GS+
  • iPod Touch
  • Android OS 2.1+
  • Blackberry OS 6+ ( limited )

if you're of the more technically inclined, The site is very HTML5 and you could probably use the site with any decent webkit based browser. Most modern touch devices already have one installed by default, so you probably don't have to worry.

With the first release you'll find:

  • Player Info
  • Team Info
  • Schedules
  • League Line ups
  • User Messages

We have plans to add more modules and ridiculousness in the coming weeks as well. The mobile app is build on top of our new, powerful API Service, which is a fancy way of saying we have little robots powered by hamster wheels that 

do nothing but spit up data when we ask for it. We are using the mobile app as a pilot program for our shiny new Data Service. In the near future we plan to open our Data service to a few 3rd parties for use. 

 

Our Data API gives access to things like:

  • IFL Teams ( Current & Historical )
  • Automatically updating Schedules
  • Full historical IFL Game Archive 
  • Stadium Information and Locations
  • Team Records ( career and seasonal )
  • League Standings ( all-time and season )

 

It's a ton of data and to top it off, it is all relational. Which means when ask for the data for last weeks games in the 

 

IFL, not only do you know who played and what the score was, but you also know what conference each team is in, Where each team plays their home games, if the game was a regular season game, playoff game or whatever. 

 

You even get a list of each teams known rivals!. With that kind of information you could build your own mobile application. You could even use our data service to power you regular website and never have to worry if it is up to date.We're pretty excited about theses shiny new toys and we hoe you enjoy them!
