Mobile apps make college sporting venues more like home

At the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., fans of the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets can use a new smart phone app to review stats and calculate the speed of a player or the football as it flies.

The Meadowlands app also alerts fans as to which concession stands have the shortest wait time, and provide updates on local traffic conditions for fans leaving the stadium.

“For a lot of people, the tradeoff of having the kitchen right around the corner and their great big TVs right there in front of them is enough” to keep them at home rather than at the stadium, Carman said.
