After a long company-wide vision quest, we here at Citizen Sports are excited to announce that the latest update for our Sportacular app for the iPhone has been approved by Apple. The update is our first step towards a more social sports experience from your phone, something we’re passionate about improving. Sportacular 1.3 allows users to comment on live games, in real time, from anywhere in the world. You can also pick winners and see what the world thinks about an upcoming game.
If the social sports experience isn’t your thing and you just have Sportacular for fast, easy-to-use live scores and stats, you’ll still be stoked about version 1.3. You can now configure your auto-updates (10 to 90 seconds) via the Settings tab. This means that all scores, stats, play details plus the new NBA on-court view will automatically refresh at the interval you set. You’ll notice a nice improvement to general performance as well.
We will roll out improvements regularly over the next few weeks and months, so we would love to hear your feedback on what we should come next. Right now we’re focusing on adding more teams and leagues (specifically Premier League, Champions League, and a few other European football leagues) plus enhancements to the social side of the experience. What do you want from your mobile sports application?
