Canucks iPhone App takes top spot

The Vancouver Canucks may have lost to the lowly Edmonton Oilers last night but their iPhone App has reached the #1 spot in the Canadian App Store.

The Canucks are the latest team to join the growing list of NHL hockey teams that are engaging fans through mobile applications and their app allows fans to stay connected to the team with exclusive news, features, photos, video, scores and statistics.

The Official Canucks iPhone application sits atop the free sports app category in the Canadian App Store and according to their PR firm is the first and only NHL team App to achieve such success. The App was released on February 9th and within two weeks had 18,000 downloads and now just over a month after the release, downloads exceed 33,000.

The Canucks iPhone App was developed by Vancouver’s Atimi Software and has received over 200 5-star ratings to date.
