Dustin Griess has been working on a BMX app for the iPhone, and It is now available. Dustin surprised me with the sweetness in Minnesota last month (it was on his iPhone), and I was very impressed with it. It is now available for free to anyone with an iPhone. Simply do a search for “BMX”, and it will show up.

The BMX GRUB app allows you to check updates from a bunch of different sites (including Defgrip), with just a few steps. It was a little buggy for me yesterday, but it’s been all good this morning when I was messing with it.

Check the press release below.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Professional BMX Rider Introduces “BMX Grub” To The iPhone

Minneapolis, MN — March 12, 2009 — Professional BMX rider and full time web developer, Dustin Griess has released BMX Grub, an application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. BMX Grub is a simple collection of the latest and most pertinent BMX news organized into one application. The application is available for download from Apple’s iTunes App Store at no cost.

“BMX has a silent absence from the App Store” says Griess, “Not only is this a perfect opportunity to launch an exciting application for BMX enthusiasts, it is an incredible learning experience to broaden my programming and marketing skills”. BMX Grub is officially the first BMX-specific application available in the App Store.

With the touch of a finger, BMX enthusiasts can browse through the latest web content from professional media, blogs, vendors, and dealers. In addition to providing quick and easy access to news & media, BMX Grub is also promoting the Stay Strong Apparel Line by professional BMX rider Stephen Murray, who became paralyzed while competing at the Action Sports Tour in Baltimore MA in June of 2007.

In 2006, Griess launched InterBMX.com, which is utilized by more than 13,000 BMX riders worldwide. Griess is also an instructor at Hennepin Technical College.

    Found and downloaded this yesturday, it is a little buggy like Nuno said but early days for this app which is only going to get better, nice and simple to use, all the popular sites/companys etc. Props to Dustin for taking the time out to create it!

    It’s a nice one-stop solution, but it’s really only doing what Bloglines and Google Reader do, which both have mobile and online versions (and they’re not limited to BMX).

  3. Andrew says:

    I wish that the app lead to RSS stories rather than taking you to the site to read them. Awesome idea, just needs a little work and it will be very sick.

  4. chris says:

    funny thing is that I checked bmx about a month ago for apps and didn’t find anything. It was only a matter of time my friends.

    Google reader is still the best. What would be nice is if vimeo started having iphone compatible videos.
