The app is free.
The iPad and Android apps appear to be the same as the NASCAR iPhone app that I reviewed here but I have not had the chance to use either of those myself.
For more information about other iPhone, iPad and iPod apps check out the About.com Guide to all things iOS related.
This NASCAR app requires iOS 5.0 or later.
What Does the NASCAR Mobile '13 iPhone App Do?
The top section will show you what, when and where the next race is as well as what network will have the coverage. The app will also conveniently give you the opportunity to add the event to your calendar. There is also a link which will let you post to Twitter or Facebook or send an email without leaving the app.
The second section of the home screen is called "My Driver" and features your favorite driver which you can designate in the drivers section of the app. This section features your driver's picture, points and rank, year to date wins and how far he or she is behind the leader in points.
Below that is the lead photo. You can swipe the photo to see more.
Finally, the bottom of the home screen shows the latest NASCAR headlines which you can touch to take you directly into the full story. Next to the news headlines is a Videos tab which will, of course, show you all the latest videos.
The videos were my one biggest complaint about the app. I don't know if it's just me or an issue with my iPhone 5 but none of the videos that I tried had any sound. Since the app is brand new I'm going to give NASCAR the benefit of the doubt until the season gets a little closer. Then we will see if this problem persists.
Digging Deeper to Find More Features
News and Media is a deeper dive into the news, videos and Twitter feeds from the sport for whichever series you have selected.
The Drivers page lists all of the drivers. Choosing any driver gives you full current season and historical stats for their career. Again, these are filter for whichever series you have selected. The past performance for each driver at the upcoming race track is also featured here including average start and average finish information.
The Schedule option brings you the full schedule and choosing any item brings you much more in depth information about the race track and the upcoming events. Right below that Tickets will allow you to purchase tickets to upcoming events.
The Standings menu option brings completely sortable standings to your mobile device.
NASCAR promises "Live race day coverage" when the season starts in February. We will have to see what form that takes but I'm hoping that will mean live streaming audio coverage of the races.
Even without live coverage this free app is definitely worth downloading so you can have all the latest NASCAR news and stats at your fingertips direct from the source.
