When NBC Sports decided to bring sports news to mobile platforms, they hired Vertigo to create the overall design (including the user experience and visual design) and develop the application. Sports Talk is a news reader application that pulls content from Word Press, which NBC Sports uses to power numerous content sites (such as ProFootballTalk, Hardball Talk, etc…).
Originally, the application was built using MonoTouch but Vertigo has recently rewritten the application natively in Objective-C. Vertigo created the application for both iOS (for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad) and Android platforms.
From the app description: “NBC Sports Talk brings you the latest news, rumors and analysis for all your favorite sports – all in one place. Check it all out in a concise and entertaining manner for the following Talk platforms while you're on the go:
- Inside the Irish
Plus, access content offline wherever you are, and share articles with friends via Facebook or Twitter.” The iOS version is a top 10 application with an average 5 star rating.
