A new mobile app for figure skating fans is now available free on both iTunes and Google Play. The 'Skating Shop' app from IceSkatingWorld.com offers news from around the world.
August 26, 2013 (Newswire.com) - IceSkatingWorld.com, a leading figure skating website since 1999, has released their first ever skating app for every type of mobile device. 'Skating Shop' is available at no charge through both the iTunes store and Google Play under their 'Apps' section.
"Clearly, fans and participants of our sport are gravitating towards all things mobile," stated Marta Nilsen, a master-rated PSA coach and President of IceSkatingWorld LLC. "We believe it was time to invest in a mobile app that offers not only access to our figure skating pro shop but also to news feeds from around the world on figure skating."
With the 2014 Winter Olympics right around the corner, now is a great time for figure skating fans to download an app that will keep them abreast of competitions, results, and breaking news from around the world. The new 'Skating Shop' app integrates the social networking feeds from IceSkatingWorld, which have proven to be very popular on both Facebook and Twitter.
"We could not find any other mobile app that offers daily news stories on our great sport, so that feature alone fills a great void." explained Nilsen.
The figure skating app also integrates all of the items from the official online pro shop of IceSkatingWorld, IceSkatingProShop.com. With just a couple of clicks, skating fans from anywhere in the world can purchase skating equipment, accessories, off-ice training devices, instructional DVDs and more.
IceSkatingWorld invites all skating fans to download this free app and leave a review upon trying it out on their phone, PC, eReader, or tablet.
