    We've all been hearing about mobile as the "next big thing" ...

    Does your shop offer a mobile-only site?
    How about an app?
    What are some of the best news/sports apps you've seen, and what makes them good?

    USA Today's app is great.. I read it just about every day on my iPhone.

    We rolled out our mobile site about a year ago. We also added the capability to view videos on your phone in the past couple months, which is a good step forward.

    Are those Flash videos, or a different method that can be seen on Apple products?

    They wouldn't be Flash if it's a mobile site.

    Not sure on the specifics, TW. I just tried to view them on my BlackBerry and couldn't, but there may be an issue with my browser settings; I can never view multimedia on here, it seems.

    It would be if it's on Android, but I'm sure it's a YouTube client. We do that a lot on our blog, post snippets of games to the blog for people to check out.

    We have a mobile site; it is not nearly what we want it to be. We're working on it, though.
