Masters iPad app is back and this time it's free

The Masters iPad app is back, this time for free. A year ago it was $1.99 and was a bargain then, more so now.

It seems to offer the same features as a year ago, including live video streams from the Par-3 Contest, from Amen Corner, from holes 15 and 16, and two featured groups (back nine only). Moreover, it will offer a live simulcast of CBS' weekend coverage, for those without access to a television.

It also offers a variety of videos, including media center interviews -- Rory McIlroy's interview Tuesday morning, complete with his cell phone ringing ("sorry, no phones at Augusta," he said sheepishly"), is currently available.

Leaderboards and pairings are also included.
