MLB.com At Bat
Platform: Apple iOS, Google Android, Blackberry, Amazon Kindle Fire, Microsoft Windows 8
Price: $0 to $19.99
The cost of the all-inclusive version of this app jumped since last year, but can also be paid in $2.99 monthly increments, which is still less than what you'll pay for a beer at any game in the league. At least that $20 gets you pitch-by-pitch updates, video highlights from games in progress and live radio broadcasts to go with free At Bat Lite content such as scores, news from MLB.com, schedules, rosters and team standings. The scoreboard option is a little more intuitive this year, while new push notifications keep you posted on every run scored in every game in the league. You still get a free MLB.TV game of the day (with better streaming), closed-captioning and a classic games video library. Want a better deal? Download MLB's free At The Ballpark app and get an automatic check-in courtesy of its ties to Apple's iBeacon. That little bonus feature also gives fans with Apple devices the ability to locate seats faster, stream video, pull up concessions maps and even upgrade seats.
