Want to dial on your cell phone like it’s 1955? There’s an app for that. Need to email while walking? Do it safely with this app. There seems to be an app for nearly everything we need and a lot of things we don’t need these days. Want to write on your cell phone screen like it was a steamy shower door…yeah, you can do that too.

It was about time there was an app for the Frisco RoughRiders. Well, it’s here. Out this season, the Frisco RoughRiders have a shiney new app for the iPhone and Android mobile platforms. AND — IT’S FREE!

Download the app:
