With its game, Swine Flew, Privus Mobile brings fun and flying pigs to iPhone owners

In the mobile gaming world, pigs are one trending topic (see Angry Birds). In fact, gamers can’t seem to get enough of the squealing animal. So what better way to satisfy our fans than to develop a game with flying pigs?! We are so excited to introduce our brand new mobile game, Swine Flew! Because it’s our first game, and we love our readers, we’re giving you an inside look into to the game!

Swine Flew is an addictive game of skill and chance that’s sure to provide you with hours of fun. Featuring flying swine traveling above scenic farmland, players aim to eliminate each pig one by one with the ammunition from one enemy pig. Swine Flew is different from other games because players don’t need to start at level one. In fact, players can start at level 12 and attempt to eliminate as many as 13 pigs. Each level brings a more challenging test of players’ reflexes.

iPhone owners can download Swine Flew from Apple’s App store or iTunes and begin the exciting game in a matter of seconds. We’re offering one free ad-supported application and another without the ads for 99 cents. Both can be downloaded by visiting the App Store on any compatible iOS device.

March mobile madness: three apps to keep you in the loop

March Madness has officially begun! But unless you’re a college student on Spring Break or work at ESPN you probably don’t get to watch the NCAA tournament games live. Don’t worry, there’s an app for that! In fact, to keep you up to speed with all 67 games—and the office basketball bracket—we have three smartphone apps to get you through the madness.

1. NCAA’s 'March Madness Live' is the king of all March Madness applications! It provides the latest scores, news updates, bracket creators and up-to-the-minute alerts that notify you when a game ends or goes into overtime. Plus, it also has a live chat feature that allows you to post bracket info (and bragging rights) to Facebook and Twitter.

2. ESPN Bracket Bound 2012 is one of the most popular free applications. To keep track of the live bracket just tap "My Bracket" and all of your teams and their scores show up. In addition, news and highlights of games show on the home screen in a slide show. You can also catch details, highlights and players’ statistics on the application.

3. Twitter is a must for sports junkies! With ESPN reporters, bloggers and even players tweeting about the games, it’s the obvious place to catch breaking news. Here are a few we suggest following: sports writers Jeff Goodman @GoodmanCBS and Andy Katz @ESPNAndyKatz tweet scores, highlights and industry insight. North Carolina player Kendall Marshall @KButter5 will provide an inside look from a player’s standpoint, while Sport Illustrated stat man Luke Winn @lukewinn does all the math so you don’t have to! Plus, all of the teams have individual Twitter handles!

Finally, all of the apps are available on both Apple and Android devices. Do you have a favorite sports application? Feel free to share your thoughts (and game predictions) by leaving us a comment or two!
