NETO, Ivo  e  LOPES, Felisbela. From the stadium to the hand: the narration of the Champions League final games through iPhone apps. OBS* [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.4, pp.105-119. ISSN 1646-5954.

The emergence of smartphones and tablets as vehicles in the reporting process is one of the topics most often discussed in the context of digitalization in the journalism field (Aguado & Martinez, 2008; Westlund, 2012; Bastell, 2012). The ubiquity, mobility, interactivity and multimedia are all characteristics that make these two new devices assuming an increasingly important role in the information society. In addition, it must take into account the new opportunities that arise for a more active consumption by audiences. How are the different media exploiting these new opportunities? This is the question that guides our research. Through the narration of four games of the Champions League 2013 finals’, on the application created for iPhone by Maisfutebol, Sky Sports and Marca, we will try to answer this pertinent question. The evolution that these devices have suffered over the past few years makes it possible to use them in the information field. Various media exploited this opportunity and have launched applications specifically developed for these platforms, used as a third informative screen after TV and computer (Orgad, 2009). This raises new production routines and a new way of relating with news content. The temporal and spatial boundaries barriers were broken, information may be available anywhere, at a time fixed by us and in different formats. The present work is part of the PhD project: “Information 4G: The challenges that mobile technologies put in the information field” (FCT: SFRH/BD/87763/2012), which has as one of its assumptions to accompany the adaptation of the different media to the emergence of mobile communication devices in the information society.
