Fancred has always been about giving fans a platform to capture and share their favorite sports moments and we are excited to welcome Android users to our community so they too can have the same experience.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Fancred, an app that lets users capture their favorite sports moments and connect and interact with a community of fellow fans, announced today the launch of its Android application, now available in the Google Play store. Offering all of the same robust and engaging features and functionalities of its iOS app, which launched in early 2013, Fancred gives new users the opportunity to capture their lives as sports fans on Android devices. This announcement comes on the heels of a $3 million funding round led by Atlas Ventures, Militello Capital, Breakaway Innovation Group and VegasTechFund.
As sports fans, we cheer for our teams, go to games, buy gear, take photos, celebrate the wins and mourn the losses. Fancred is a place for sports enthusiasts to share and collect those memories, like a digital shoebox, while connecting with like-minded fans, teams and influencers. Easy to use and beautifully designed, Fancred’s Android app allows users to share photos and videos, check-in at stadiums, post interesting articles and funny GIFs, and experience game day every day.
“Fancred was founded on the fundamental belief that deeply passionate communities are built around sports teams,” said Fancred’s CEO, Hossein Kash Razzaghi. “The fans that make up those groups have incredibly unique memories, experiences, and one-of-a-kind moments that create a very special bond. Fancred has always been about giving fans a platform to capture and share those moments and we are excited to welcome Android users to our community so they too can have the same experience.”
Fancred’s ‘Team Feeds’ make it easy for users to build their communities and start relationships; to follow and interact with their favorite teams and fellow fans, discover and share great content, stay up-to-date on the latest news and share favorite sports moments whether it’s posting a meaningful picture or a funny GIF. The ‘Fancred Score’, a 1-100 point system, measures activity and engagement, so users can easily find influential fans they want to follow and add to their community. The more active and engaged users are with the app, the higher their Fancred score will rise. Building an active and strongly engaged community will also help turn Fancred into a virtual stadium on game day, where users can watch and experience the game with thousands of other fans.
Rapidly gaining traction with its user base growing 50% month over month, Fancred takes user feedback and market trends to continually refine its product by constantly adding new features and functionalities. In an effort to build the world’s largest sports community and offer its users the best fan experience, Fancred will continue developing strategic partnerships with professional and collegiate teams, brands and media organizations.
Founded in 2012, Fancred’s mission is to build the world’s largest sports community by offering users a digital scrapbook to capture their favorite sports moments and connect with other fans and teams. Fancred is currently available on iOS, Android and Fancred.com.
