Most NBA team apps provide fans with lots of information in relation to their Arenas. Some are even partnered with them (eg Atlanta Hawks and StateFarm Arena). These apps offer map views of the stadium and surrounding area. This can be useful to those planning on watching a game, especially for the first time. Handy nearby points of interest are available, as are upcoming events.
Another important point to consider for those attending games by car is parking. This can also normally be managed within the stadium features.
A live ticketing system is usually integrated into to the official NBA team apps, providing a clear view of availability and pricing. There is, of course, the capability to purchase tickets from apps with this system in place. Upgrading tickets and selling/sharing tickets are also possible. Some of the apps have taken things to another level by linking up with arena food and drink providers. This offers fans the service of being able to order tasty snacks and beverages right to your arena seat.
One feature that appears on all team apps of the NBA is historic statistical data. The way the information is displayed and laid out can differ between the apps, but the core stats offered are very similar. League tables, calendar rosters, previous match scores, and key player statistics are all included tracking points, rebounds, and assists, etc. Season stats and career stats are typically available.
This area is where those who are looking to wager on the NBA should be interested in. The information here is coming from official sources. Therefore it can be relied upon for accuracy. Reading up before a game, analyzing data and identifying trends can lead to a more informed choice in the betting markets.
With so many prop bets available now, these key stats can be vital in taking the value out of the hands of the bookmakers.

News and opinions
Official NBA apps convey the latest team news in a number of ways. These tend to be
- Written articles.
- Videos of news and highlights.
- Live Radio channels built into the app.
The subject matter can vary, depending on what is happening with the team. There’s gossip articles, live radio commentary on big games, new player introductions, injury reports, player news and a whole lot more to keep fans as close as possible for that all-around family feel.
Official NBA team apps bring about official NBA merchandise purchasing opportunities. Official jerseys, custom jerseys, training gear, hats, basketballs, and memorabilia can all be purchased a couple of taps of the finger.
Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are as popular as ever and with being so, most NBA players now have their own official accounts. These are usually linked with player profiles, giving you easier access to what your favorite players are up to. Some apps also have fun games, photo filters and augmented reality experiences that can then be shared on your social media pages.
Sticker apps for iOS Messaging.
Some NBA teams have gone the extra mile on iOS by also releasing sticker packs the can be used across Apple’s iMessaging service. This is a great way to express your feelings and allegiance at the same time. Animated player faces, team logos, and badges can all be shared with friends and family.
Unfortunately, as these apps are official no wagering markets or prices are displayed. So as far as actual physical betting features are concerned – there are none. That said the apps still do come in handy as a betting tool thanks to the stats on offer, rather than being an actual betting function.

All of the official NBA team apps are available across iOS and Android devices. Few can be found for Windows and Blackberry devices. However, apps on Windows Mobile and Blackberry tend to be developed and then not updated, leaving them slow and buggy.
Therefore our advice is if you don’t have an Android or iOS device, head to the official mobile website of your favorite team instead of from your mobile browser. You can then save this to your home screen for easier access to it from thereon in.
