NFL posts Super Bowl app for Android, iOS

updated 08:00 pm EST, Thu February 2, 2012

Free app guides attendees around Indianapolis

The NFL has released its official app for Super Bowl XLVI. The app provides fans attending Sunday's upcoming contest between the New England Patriots and New York Giants a guide to Lucas Oil Stadium and the surrounding areas of Indianapolis (free, App Store, Android Market). The app provide viewers with a virtual 3D view of the stadium as well as a guide to nightlife and official NFL events.

It links to Yelp for restaurant locations and reviews. To help getting to and from the stadium, the app will show road restrictions. Once inside the stadium, the app can help guide ticket holders to their seats. On game day, Tweets will also be available. The app features "NFL Huddle," which takes Twitter trending topics and will create some consolidated infographics.

Conspicuously absent is any mention of streaming the game, although this won't be necessary given separate official streaming options for Android and iOS users. [via The Verge]
