Steelers fans have enough to worry about on Sundays as it is. This app takes the anxiety out of finding a place to watch the game.
Reston, VA (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
MapMuse today announced that it will be discounting its popular Sports Bars for Steelers Fans app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to celebrate the start of the NFL season. The app, which connects Pittsburgh Steelers fans across the country with bars and restaurants that show Steelers games, will cost only $0.99 to download during the month of September.
“I've learned that the Steelers Nation stretches from coast to coast,” says MapMuse owner Mike Pilon, who became a Steelers convert as an adult. "I had to agree to convert before my wife would marry me," laughs Pilon. "We actually use the app a lot ourselves," he adds.
Built on an interactive map populated with icons representing each bar, the app allows users to browse Steelers bars near their current location or search for ones far and wide. Tapping a bar’s icon brings up its profile page, which is packed with helpful information such as contact details, web links, reviews, and photos. Once a user finds a bar to watch the game, they can get instant in-app driving directions there via Google Maps, or call the bar via one-touch dialing for more information. “Steelers fans have enough to worry about on Sundays as it is," says Pilon. "This app takes the anxiety out of finding a great place to watch the game."
Customer feedback to Sports Bars for Steelers Fans has been overwhelmingly positive since the app’s release several years ago, with the majority of iTunes reviews awarding it a perfect five-star rating. An increase in downloads is anticipated by MapMuse in the coming months as the football season gets underway, and certain interactive features have been included in the app to engage the growing user base, including the abilities to suggest edits to the map (e.g. newly opened bars), and submit photos and reviews of bars visited. “Sports Bars for Steelers is so much more than just a travel guide or a directory,” says Pilon. “It’s a fan community and photo sharing platform too.”
Sports Bars for Steelers Fans is currently available for download on the iTunes app store for $0.99. Fans without mobile Apple devices can access a free web version of the app on MapMuse’s website, which contains the bars, but with less functionality (e.g. no mobile driving directions or one-touch dialing).
MapMuse, an internet and app development company based in Reston, VA, is an experienced player in the sports location services market. In addition to the Sports Bars for Steelers Fans app, they’ve developed web maps that locate bars for other major fanbases, including those of the Boston Red Sox and Michigan Wolverines.
