Sports fans are among the most expressive and passionate people on this earth- they not only need to stay connected at game time with the action on the field, they want to share their thoughts and feelings with fellow fans
Santa Clara, California (PRWEB) September 9, 2008
Answering football fans' call for better, faster and more complete mobile coverage of the pro football season, mobile technology innovator Plusmo today launched the beta version of Pro Football Live. This free, breakthrough mobile application is available on virtually any smartphone and combines up-to-the-minute football coverage with fun social features, giving fans a whole new way to stay connected to their favorite teams, no matter where they are.
Pro Football Live provides fans with "end zone-to-end zone" updates and scores, game schedules, breaking news, stunning game-time visuals and advanced social features that let users chat live with other fans, and cheer or jeer teams and players throughout the game. The beta version of Pro Football Live is available immediately at http://fb.plusmo.com or by visiting the Apple iTunes App Store (http://plusmo.com/profootball).
"Plusmo has developed an open, mobile platform that delivers the best interactive sports experience right to your mobile device. I am excited about the breakthrough Plusmo has made in bringing mobile fans right into the game -- so much so, I decided to invest in the company," said pro football hall of famer and managing director at HRJ Capital Ronnie Lott. "With its continuous live updates, cool visuals and social aspects, Pro Football Live is the next best thing to being in the stadium surrounded by fans."
Pro Football Live creates a "virtual stadium" experience by offering in-progress updates for each play pushed to your phone as it happens. And fans across the country can personalize the application to get one-click access to all game-time action on their favorite teams.
