Smartphones Technologies has announced that they are currently working on creating college sports apps for over 80 different universities. The apps will bear the name of “College SuperFans” when they arrive and will give users breaking news, live game tracking, scoreboards, and more for their favorite college. Each version will be specifically tailored for your alma mater or team and will cover football and basketball programs. Future versions of the app will expand to other sports as well as allow for universities to connect with their fans via news updates and messages.
As of today, the first 30 teams are available for iPhone and include the following features:
- Live Game Tracker with real-time scores throughout the game
- Live scoreboard with scores of other games in progress
- Previews of upcoming games, recaps of completed games, and updates with the latest info about the team.
- AP News stories in the app, with links to stories from other sources
- AP & BCS polls and Conference Standings
- Message boards allowing fans to interact with one another regardless of their device
You can currently find an all-in-one version of their College SuperFans 2009-10 Season Pass in the Android Market today. Look for the new College SuperFans in the “near future”.
