    I would love to get an Android version of this. IMO when someone writes an app the scripts should be translated so blackberries, iPhones and Androids can all have a version. I also wish than man would discover warp drive but thats not happening anytime soon either.

    Get it on Android!

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  6. Rainrocket16 says:

    Excellent…now get one for Droid!!

  7. habs81 says:

    This is amazing nice job.

  8. since1988 says:

    Testing the new app I like it good job

  9. Lafrich says:

    Ahem…Android please?

  10. Rob Maguire says:

    Bug report: the non-live blog part of Boone’s posts are not showing up in the app. So right now we’ll have to flip back and forth between the app an the mobile site to view all the content on his page during games.

  11. Richard says:

    Amazing app.
    I would love to know how many downloads in the first 24 hours, especially on the opening night of our playoffs.

  12. J Haul says:

    And an edit option.. Hah

  13. J Haul says:

    A reply option in comments would be nice too.

  14. J Haul says:

    Yay! iPhone app!
    As many have suggested already, gotta get it working in landscape view.
    You’ll find a lot people won’t use it, at least in terms of comment posting, if you can’t switch to landscape. Portrait view is a HUGE pain to type in.
    This should be priority #1.

    Just in time for my new iPhone – wooo!!

    When did the thumbs up/thumbs down buttons go away? ๐Ÿ™

    i have been waiting for this!! good call

  17. “Check it out at the Apple Store” boone you n00b! apple store is on st-catherine!

    the app, is available in the APP store ๐Ÿ˜€

    /splitting hairs ftw

    but seriously, yay push notifications, more buzzing for the pants the better!

  18. JIMVINNY says:

    And it’s way slower than my browser, and it won’t switch to landscape view, and it looks silly at 2x view…. And I guess I just don’t like it. Oh well, I hope it works better for everyone else.

  19. elduquay says:

    The Android platform may have a larger hand set market share…but from a software perspective, fragmentation will never allow them to catch up to Apple and the iPhone. By in large, developers just prefer iOS…so Apple will continue to have superior quality and quantity in terms of apps.

    Congratulations to the HiO Team for the iPhone APP, getting it now.

  21. Habs_008 says:

    I got the App, havent gone through it really, but its cool, Im working until 8pm so im gonna miss the first half of the game, at least I will know who scored with the push. Thanks HIO.

  22. elduquay says:

    Love the design…sleek and minimalist!
    Will Boone’s game blog be viewable on it?

    • asmaa says:

      Yes, you’ll be able to view Boone’s live blog and post comments on the app. Just tap the scoreboard on the home screen once the game starts. You can also get it to it via the Boone link on the home screen.

        Just logged in to say thanks for your hard work! HIO web staff are often maligned and always unsung.

        Personally I find the iPhone app is pretty terrible on the iPad. Maybe that’s to be expected. But it has one awesome side-effect: I no longer have to forcibly leave the “mobile version” of the site, I get the good old normal version default again in the browser. That, I do like very much, so thanks!

  23. giovy says:

    Great ! It becomes automatically the main app on my iPhone ! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Now I have to turn push notifications off, given that I won’t be able to watch game #1 before tomorrow morning ๐Ÿ™

  24. JIMVINNY says:

    My iPad does not approve of this app. How hard is it to design an app for iPad as well?

  25. Ian Cobb says:

    Why is it that some app is,? and some app is not.?

  26. colin_nowra says:

    Will there be an iPad app as well?

    Would also be awesome to get a Windows Phone 7 app

  27. Ian Cobb says:

    This site is still tops for me. Desk top works great, Itech pocket scan works perfectly, along with my chokecherry pod apps, it can go everywhere. I just love keeping up with all this technology.

    I can’t wait for the delivery of my accordion 48″ screen that fits into my pocket.

  28. HabFanSince72 says:

    Need “reply to” capacity for the app.

  29. wotever says:

    positive: new comments are on top!
    Negative: no landscape keyboard, ads

  30. wotever says:

    If this isn’t just the product of some wordpress-to-app app I’d be surprised, so if it exists for Android I’m sure it will happen.

    Still can’t reply in a threaded fashion using this or the mobile web app.

  31. Psycho29 says:

    It doesn’t work! I can’t seem to dowload it to my phone!

    (Ok I just wanted to join in on the complaining!!)

  32. dbens says:

    youve got to be kidding me the day i sell my iphone in exchange for a nexus s! dammit!

  33. CHsam says:

    If there is a corresponding android app, I will definately rid my iphone3 for an android.

  34. HabFanSince72 says:

    App looks good

  35. Snook says:

    Is this going to be added to the Blackberry Torch?

  36. sane hockey fan says:

    God I’ve never heard so much complaining about free stuff!!

    Great job on the app guys!!

  37. SOSOHABS says:

    Hahahaaaa!! A bumper sticker?!
    Well I guess I seriously need to switch my Blackberry to an Iphone now…


  38. mon_chums says:

    When are companies and developers going to stop launching iPhone apps without a corresponding Android app? How much market share does Android have to take before it starts getting treated like the #1 platform? Get with it, HIO!


  39. CHsam says:

    Bah requires iphone4 update.

  40. Jordio-oh says:

    too bad this site is still malfunctioning…..

  41. kelowna_HAB says:

    What about Blackberry!!?

  42. thebigguy says:

    What about Droid owners?

  43. Corporate says:

    Good job on the app guys. Exactly was I was looking for. Your mobile webpage is not the best. This is much better.

  44. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    Anything coming for Android? – sorry I think the comments were down for a bit.

  45. J.J. of Turku says:

    I love you guys, thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚


  46. Propwash says:

    Blackberry users are 2nd class citizens I guess.

  47. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    Anything for android coming?
