Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

We've got it all for Jets junkies

  • Print

IF you are a fan of the Winnipeg Jets, keeping tabs on your team just got a lot easier.

In concert with the first pre-season game of the reborn Jets, the Winnipeg Free Press has officially launched several Jets-related products.

The first is our live-scoring widget produced by Sports Direct. It delivers real-time scoring from Jets games, as well as all NHL games, so you can see at a glance how your team and everyone else in the league are doing. The widget will be seen on our main landing page as well as our Sports and Jets landing pages.

For those wishing to delve deeper into the magic of statistical minutiae, Sports Direct also provides all of the usual stat categories, which will be displayed on our Jets pages.

We're considering this a live Beta test of the service. If you notice any bugs, let me know, and I'll have them tweaked before the start of the regular season.

Next we have the unveiling of our WFP Hockey iPhone app, which is now available at the App Store.

On top of providing the same real-time scoring engine from Sports Direct, the WFP Hockey app also aggregates all of our Jets coverage from print and the web and includes Twitter feeds, links to live blogs, photo galleries and videos. It's your hub for Jets hockey on the iPhone.

Another way to interact with our coverage from the road or at the games is with our Cover it Live content.

As we've done with the Moose and other major events like concerts, we will be live-blogging every game of the Jets season, pre-season included.This gives you the chance to follow the progress of the game and to send your thoughts along to our writers and to other Jets fans.

Not only can you take part in Cover it Live on your computer, but you can download the Cover it Live app and join in at the arena. Download the app and search for our live blog items and join in the fun.

Finally, we are pleased to welcome Darren Ford to our site as lead moderator on the JetStream fan forum.

We've been running a live Beta for this for a while, and we're still tweaking the settings. It is good to go for game night.

Ford ran the popular JetsOwner.com website and forum and he'll be contributing regularly to the forum with insight from the fan experience angle throughout the season.

These innovations are part of our effort to provide you with many ways to get your Jets content and to ensure you get it in the format you want when you want it. That is the golden rule of digital.

Try out our new services and let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
