Football Pro updated to version 2.0, ready for the 2013 season

Are you ready, for some Football? Well are ya?

An update to Football Pro '12 (formerly known as NFL Pro '12) has been updated over at the Windows Phone Marketplace in preparation for the upcoming season. While the Marketplace title stills reflects the Football Pro '12 name, the version 2.0 update takes the app to Football Pro '13.

Confused? So were we but apparently it takes a while before the Marketplace will reflect the name change for the app. What you're looking for is version 2.0. Once you run the Football Pro, you'll see things setup for the 2013 season within the app itself.  Even though the title is dated '12.

Along with all the stats, scores and standings from the season, here's a few of the features Football Pro '13 will offer.

  • Fantasy Playoff: Personalize your own fantasy playoff prediction and pick who is going to win the Super bowl this year
  • Favorite Team Tile: Follow your favorite team as a secondary live tile and gain easy access to your team’s page
  • Live Scores: Get the latest scores while the game is under way
  • Latest News and Roster: Check the latest news for every team and league wise, and get the full Roster with detailed information about all players
  • Latest Videos: Watch the latest podcasts about the National Football League
  • Live Sports Talk: Share your comments and knowledge with everybody on your team’s page
  • Player Tweets: Follow your favorite NFL player tweets right on the app
  • Live Radio: When you're on the go you can listen to the live game via our Football Pro ’13 Radio

As with the previous version, Football Pro '13 lays everything out nicely. The app utilizes the Modern UI Design with your central pages covering your profile, live scores, standings, and teams separated by division. If you're looking for a one stop source for the NFL season, Football Pro '13 is worth a look.

Football Pro '13 is a free, ad supported app for your Windows Phone. You can find it here at (opens in new tab) the Windows Phone Marketplace. Remember, we are told it may take a while before the title changes on the Marketplace. What you are looking for is Version 2.0.

Thanks, Luis and Kay, for the tip!

  • Nice app! Wish there where a paid no-ad version. Gonna get some good use out of this.
  • I asked about this with Baseball Pro '12.
    Judging by the response, from @LuisNeuralnet, this is something they are working on or looking at. My hope is that a paid version will be available for Baseball Pro '13, Football Pro '14, etc.
  • Actually Luis just told me that the paid version (ad free) will be ready for the start of the season! No word on price yet.
  • Is this the "offical" NFL app, like MLB AT Bat 2012 is ?
  • No not an officlal NLF app.  Still has plenty of good data.  FYI, I installed it fresh (not upgrade) and it says 13 after it's installed in the app list.
  • NFL Live already does all this and has already been updated to the new season, including pre-season. Sorry guys.
  • NFL Live does not include all that Football Pro has, look at the numbers of reviews over 700+ and still 4.5 stars, plus NFL Live is really slow.
    Simply there is no comparison, plus I had this app long time ago and this live thing just seems to be a copycat.
