Unit 7: Chris Katsifis: This sports app wants to compete with ESPN, Twitter, and WhatsApp

GameOn re-launches with several new functions in order to compete with Twitter, WhatsApp and ESPN. There is over thousands of sports apps in the Apple app store but creator Alex Beckman believes his product sticks out. The app has received investments and endorsements from former NFL player Joe Montana and Lawyer Milloy. The app allows users to message during a game, have “huddles” with pro athletes, live score updates, real time tweets and the ability to earn digital “stickers”. The goal is to be a one-stop place for connecting people with what is going on in sports. GameOn is taking on score apps, cable companies and player writing apps. GameOn is also focusing on an international crowd with cricket so people can stay connected to the sport they love all across the globe. GameOn has the ability to make people leave social media and start following and chatting with their favorite players from this app.
