Sure, your iPhone is protected with a LeBron James case. Or maybe Kevin Love is the background image on your Android. But if your smartphone is missing these three Cavs apps, then it's so last gen. Mike Conley, Cavs vice president of digital and Web services, breaks down the team's mobile Big Three.
Why download it: The app delivers a schedule, stat tracking and live radio broadcasts, but it really shines at The Q. In addition to ticket upgrades and in-seat ordering (lower bowl only), fans at the arena can re-watch every play 15 seconds after it happens. "It provides a completely different perspective on the play as it unfolds," Conley says. Favorite feature:Stand near the Cavs Team Shop, and you'll get date-specific team history each time you're there.

Why download it:No mere smiley face or heart-eyed emoji can truly express one's Cavs fandom. Thankfully the team's keyboard app is full of cartoon likenesses of LeBron James, Kevin Love and more. "[I have] what my wife will call 'incessant' texting conversations back and forth with her that only contain those emojis," jokes Conley. Favorite Feature:The app has preloaded GIFs of highlights that will be updated as the season progresses.
Why download it: Physical tickets are for baby boomers. This app sidesteps the hassles of printing or waiting at will call with a unique QR code that holds all the ticket info. "All you have to do is have that app loaded up, they'll scan that and you'll get a seat locator," Conley says. Favorite Feature: If you're buying ticket for you and friends, the app allows you to send the tickets directly to their app instead of clumsily trying to set up a time to meet before the game.
