Kathy Smith, Mobile Manager, at Liverpool FC and Sanjay Mistry, Operations Director, InfoMedia, talk about the Liverpool FC Match & News Centre for Nokia phones.
Kathy explains that the app provides access to news, club information, and match details. In addition, videos are offered as a premium service. ‘Nokia devices are massively popular in the territories where we have large fan bases,’ says Kathy.
The app was developed for Liverpool FC by InfoMedia. InfoMedia chose to create a web app because of the company’s background. In addition to finding the Nokia Web Tools easy to install and use, Mistry notes that the app was built using three of the templates provided with the tool. ‘With the faster rendering of the (Nokia Asha Touch) handset we were able to build out richer experiences … to use higher quality images, use better technology to ensure the user flow and (navigation) swiping … were more intuitive than a standard website,’ says Mistry.

Let us know about your experiences!
Share your expertise on how to migrate to the expanded Series 40 platform and you could win a trip to a Nokia Event and/or a developer phone pack consisting of both touch (Nokia Asha 311) and touch-and-type (Nokia Asha 303) Series 40 devices. Not to mention raising your CV to the next level, and getting your skills noticed by the community.
As this is a wiki competition, we are looking for how-tos, tutorials, and code example articles that help the community migrate to the new platform. The main focus of the competition is migrating to Series 40 Full Touch, but we also highly value articles that use new platform features like location and mapping, imaging, sensors, in-app purchasing and advertising, etc. For the first time, we’ll be giving special consideration to articles that are “locally relevant” – articles that help developers address markets and needs that are specific to a country or area.
We’ll also be awarding a Nokia Asha 311 to the developers giving us the best feedback on each of our new Java ME SDK and Web Tools. In total there will be at least 14 phones awarded – 6 prize packs (Asha 311 + Asha 303) for wiki articles, and two Asha 311s for the feedback. We may award even more phones if we get too many great entries! Along with the trip to a Nokia Developer event, that’s a great prize pool.
For more details and to enter, see Asha Touch Competition 2012Q3.
We’re looking forward to seeing what you can come up with!
