There’s never enough time in the day to keep up with work and all your hobbies/interests, especially if you’re big on sports. Your iPhone helps you stay on top of mission critical tasks for work, but now it can help you keep tabs on the sports games that are most important to you. That’s where FanPulse comes in. FanPulse keeps you up-to-the-minute on games, scores, sports news, and your friends’ activity. FanPulse is now available in the iPhone AppStore as a free app to to transform your iPhone into a game-tracking, push-notifying, trash-talking sports tool.
The idea behind FanPulse is to allow you to “follow” your favorite sports teams news, games, and scores in bite-sized chunks. FanPulse knows that you can’t possibly follow all your favorite teams’ games – hell, you probably have trouble keeping tabs on even a single team’s home games – and aims to keep you informed at all times. In addition to sports and game update, the app let’s you chat (we talk “trash”), in real-time and through push notifications, with your friends about a particular game.
What you do is tell FanPulse which teams you’d like to follow. You then set preferences for the kinds of alerts you’d like to have pushed to your iPhone – final score notifications, basic score updates, or detailed game updates for more frequent real-time game updates and scoring plays for NFL and NHL. FanPulse will give you a list of upcoming games for your teams, and gives you the chance to “check in” to games you’d like to follow. From there, FanPulse will track the game and keep you in the loop.
You don’t follow sports, you say? Well, chances are you’ve been relegated to the non-speaking table when your group of friends start up a conversation about [fill in your favorite sport here]. It can get lonely being the only one of your friends without a penchant for sports trivia. But with FanPulse installed on your iPhone, you have a virtual sports news cheat-sheet in your pocket. The FanPulse news feed continually updates you with new developments on the teams that matter most to you, allowing you to keep up with significant sports news without having to scour ESPN.com and tracking tedious stats.
FanPulse is free and available now in the AppStore. Give it a download, if for nothing more than to talk trash on your friends’ favorite sports teams.
