Detroit Lions Mobile (iOS – Free)
iPhone: Detroit Lions Mobile from the App Store.
Green Bay Packers
Official Green Bay Packers App (iOS & Android – FREE)
The Green Bay Packers app is very nicely laid out and includes news, videos, schedule, standings, roster, and more. They even promise a soundboard is “coming soon.” The only drawback is that the app loads rather slowly, especially if you haven’t used the app in awhile. You can tweak the startup options in the settings to try to mitigate the lag time. It’s a good thing the Packers have such a nice app because their mobile site, m.packers.com, is a rather poor effort with hard to select links and sub-par optimized pages. The App is free and available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android, however, the app has not been optimized for iPad.
Houston Texans Official Mobile (Android & iOS – FREE)
(UPDATED – 9/9/11) The Texans now have an iPhone app in addition to their previous Android release. The apps have different layouts but much of the same content.
Indianapolis Colts Mobile (Android and iOS – Free)
Delivers all the latest Colts news, previews, stats, and multimedia.
Download Indianapolis Colts Mobile from the App Store.
Download Indianapolis Colts Mobile for Android from the Android Market.
Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs Mobile (iOS only – FREE)
The Chiefs Mobile app itself seems to focus mainly on fans attending a Chiefs game with links to locate seats, restrooms, ticket information, and connecting with security if you have a problem while at the game. The “Media Stream” section has recent audio and video clips, including “Chiefs Live with Josh Looney.” The Live section brings you live streaming events a they take place.
The “Updates” take you to non-optimized web pages and thus aren’t really worth using, especially since you can jump right to the Chiefs mobile website from within the app. Just tap the logo at the bottom and launch the Chiefs mobile website, which is optimized for viewing on mobile devices. The App is free and available for iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. There is a separate iPad version which is fully optimized for the iPad.
Miami Dolphins App (iOS, Android – FREE)
The Miami Dolphins Official App is loaded with content including video clips, audio clips, schedule, roster, news, and all the good stuff you’d expect. One issue is that the full news articles are forwarded to non-optimized web pages. Otherwise, it’s a top notch app.
Minnesota Vikings Official App (iOS – Free)
Download Vikings Mobile from the App Store.
New England Patriots
Official New England Patriots App (iOS, Android, and Blackberry – FREE)
The Official New England Patriots App is nicely designed, and includes some quality multimedia (Video & Audio). Sadly missing from the app are content such as rosters, stats, and standings. The mobile website, m.patriots.com, offers basically the same content, but isn’t laid out as nicely as the mobile app.
Download iPhone, Pad, iPod Touch: New England Patriots App
Android Market: New England Patriots Android App
Patriots Gameday Live (iOS, Android, Blackberry – FREE)
This is a separate app that can only be used by premium seating members within the Fidelity Investments Club at Gillette Stadium. The app boasts on-demand instant replay, live cameras, and NFL Red Zone.

Steelers Gameday Plus is another premium App that we haven’t personally tested. Reviews have been mixed but trending upward since the last update. The App boasts real-time scores, drive-by-drive stats, news, roster, depth chart, standings, video-on-demand and twitter. There is also a free version with very limited features many of which are only available to fans in the wi-fi enabled club seats and suites at Heinz Field.

Android: Download Steelers Gameday Plus from the Android Market

San Diego Chargers
San Diego Chargers (iOS – FREE)
The San Diego Chargers App is a free app with a simple and efficient layout with news, video, photos, and blog. It’s not going to blow you away. The app is missing things like rosters, schedule, etc., but it will keep you up to date with the latest content from the Chargers website. Frankly, you’re probably better off using the Chargers mobile site.
Download San Diego Chargers iPhone app from the App Store.
San Francisco 49ers
49ers Gameday Live (iOS, Android, Blackberry – FREE)
The 49ers Gameday Live is a free app for iPhone, Android, or Blackberry. It’s very similar in style to the Falcons Gameday app (and created by the same developer). 49ers Gameday Live provides news, video, schedule, stats, roster, depth chart, and social media updates. For fans at Candlestick Park, Gameday Live also provides real-time camera angles, replays and access to NFL RedZone (wi-fi connection required).

Buccaneers Official Mobile App (iOS & Android – FREE)
The Bucs have joined the NFL mobile app world. There oficial app comes from the same developers that created the apps for the 49ers, Browns, etc. As with there other creations, this app is well designed with plenty of multimedia content and other features you’d want like rosters, depth chart, news, schedule, injury updates, and even a way to track fantasy players.
Android: Buccaneers Official Mobile
Tennessee Titans Mobile (iOS – Free)
Tennessee Titans Mobile from the App Store.
Official Washington Redskins App (iOS & Android – FREE)
The Official Washington Redskins App has some nice features, like the ability to switch to cover flow for scrolling through the roster, and the video content. Unfortunately, the news section only provides a introductory snippet of an articles before forcing you to jump to a non-mobile optimized page. On the plus side, it keeps you in the app rather than send you to the browser, but it’s still less than ideal. The App is free and available for iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, however, the app has not yet been optimized for iPad.
iOS: The Official Washington Redskins Mobile App from the App Store.
Android: Official Redskins App
NFL Team Mobile Sites
Ok, so your favorite team doesn’t have it’s own mobile app. Most NFL teams have a mobile-friendly version of their website. And, essentially, team apps simply pull content from the websites anyway. Typically, but not always, a web server will also recognize that your are using a mobile browser and automatically return the mobile version if the website.
You can easily create a Home screen shortcut on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad by selecting the bookmark button in the Safari browser, choosing “Add to Home Screen,” and give the shortcut a name.
For Android devices, create a shortcut in your browser just as you would for any site, then press and hold your Home Screen or the Menu button to pull up the options menu. Select shortcut, your chosen browser bookmark, and the bookmark itself.

It will be interesting to see how many new team apps will be released between now and the end of the season. Development of such mobile projects may have been put on hold this off-season with many franchises tightening their proverbial belts in case of a long work stoppage.
NFL fans may also want to check out some of the official NFL mobile apps. For Verizon customers with iPhone or Android phones, there is the NFL Mobile app. For all other users there is the NFL ’12 App.by
