Received an e-mail from TheNYRBlog reader Tim yesterday who informed me that on the Android market there are three free text apps that assist users with text messaging.
The apps are: sms bomber, elitebomb sms text bomber free and text bomber.
Before any of you Droid users run to download one of these apps, please, please, please check with your provider that you will not be charged for these texts. And that goes for anyone texting votes for Avery. The last thing you need is to text “Sean Avery” numerous times and find out you’re getting charged for it.
The official word from the NHL on text voting is that “Message and data rates may apply.”
Also, I’m not pushing anyone to use these apps as I’m personally not familiar with them, I thought I’d just pass this along.
For all of those who might think this is cheating I give you this quote from the NHL…
“…the balloting process is entirely digital, offering sports’ most tech-savvy fans the ability to vote as often as they like via mobile devices and online.”
…the NHL says to vote as often as we’d like and we intend to.
To vote for Avery you can go to NHL.com or text “Avery” to 81812.
Also don’t foget to “Like” the official “Vote for Sean Avery” facebook page.
