my iPhone is jailbroken and I still have access to the App Store.

I'd echo the desire for a yahoo one, especially stattracker, but I won't get my hopes up. Classic stattracker on my iphone would be heavenly, but I can't see that happening. It'll have to be all glossed up and unusuable.

I don't know, MLB At Bat works pretty nicely and Stattracker wouldn't have to be any more in depth than that. That said, I'm not holding my breath since Yahoo always rolls out new stuff for football first.

it's not that stattracker needs to be any more complicated than classic stattracker (it absolutely doesn't); it's that yahoo probably won't let it. They've done all they can to take the simple classic away from us in favor of a format I mostly hear complaints about.

I understand that, but MLB At Bat is way more in depth than the current Stattracker so I'm saying it should have no problem being ported to the iPhone.

isn't stattracker flash based, though?

it'll have to be another format because the iphone doesn't support flash yet, though last I heard it may be coming in the future.

Yep, that's why it needs to be an app, otherwise we could just view it in Safari. I've heard that rumor wasn't true but you never know.

Hey-

Anyone having trouble accessing the Yahoo fantasy pages from their iphone?

Maybe it's just because things haven't really started up yet, but when accessing my league page it's is basically blank, and when I try to go to my team home page (no team drafted yet), some of the time Safari will just shut down. Anyone experiencing this? I'm hoping it's just because our league hasn't drafted or anything yet.

I've found that if I load my team page with the phone upright it won't load the whole thing, just the top part of the page. If I then turn the phone sideways (without reloading) to flip the screen it'll show the rest of the page including my roster. If I then turn the phone back upright everything's still there.

The "baseball" app is amazing for those of us "stat geeks" out there. Not sure when you actually got it but it used to have logos for most of the teams on there to. It was somewhat interesting to see the evolution of team logos. BUT, MLB threatened the maker with legal action if he didn't take all the logos out so he cut them out late last year.

As far as fantasy goes, looks for some to pop up closer to the season starting. Some sites may have web apps to that you can use. I have a web app linked directly to my teams homepage. The cool part if the icon comes up as the team logo.

I found that if you download the app "Sportacular" you can make a custom team that when you bring up that team it will show the stats for that day.
