iPhone App of the Week: Melbourne Cup Carnival

Emma Krieger /

Tech TricksIt’s Spring racing time again, and while this year there are plenty of mobile resources to keep you on track, the official Melbourne Cup carnival app is definitely the best.



The app provides you with form guides, breaking news, mail, and a racing guide, which breaks down schedules for races, information on transport and a guide to the past 150 years of Melbourne Cup winners. You’ll also be given tips, provided by Herald Sun commentators.


But along with the trivia, the Melbourne Cup Sweep feature is probably the best one. You input each person who’s participating in the sweep, and then once the race is finished, it will automatically select the winners for you.


If you’re a racing fan, you shouldn’t let this one go, and at $2.99 it’ll help you out the entire season.
