Leinster Rugby Referees have launched a new mobile phone web app which allows you to keep track of your upcoming fixtures through a live & up to date application that is compatible with most mobile devices.
This can be seen by typing http://www.arlb.ie/fixtures/mobile/ in to your mobile phone web browser.This app is primarily a web interface as opposed to an iphone app. Not all members have iphones so this was the most compatible method across multiple platforms to distribute this information. For iPhone users though you can add an icon to your home screen which will link you directly to the app. (Just click on the bookmark icon and select add to home screen). The news feed from the homepage of arlb.ie site is also available through this application.
