San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 5, 2010
FanPulse today launched the first version of its iPhone app, available at http://bit.ly/FanPulse. Blending the ability to follow your favorite teams and talk (or trash-talk) with your friends, FanPulse is a better way to follow the sports you love, and is available just in time for the Super Bowl this weekend.
Fans can check-in to games to chat and trash-talk with friends who are also watching – it’s like being at the game together!

“We’re very excited to give sports fans a way to connect with their friends around sports,” said Vishwas Prabhakara, Founder and CEO of FanPulse. “For so long, fans have been inundated with more stats, more news, more data. But no one has focused on what makes sports such a key social driver – helping fans talk to each other about the sports they love.”
Upon downloading the iPhone app, fans can set up their favorite teams and find other friends that are using FanPulse via Facebook, Twitter and their iPhone address book. Fans can then “Check-in” to a game, telling all their friends they are watching, and immediately shout, or send a message, to friends who are also watching the game. Fans can also enter their Facebook and Twitter logins to publish all their check-ins and shouts.
