A big thank-you to all our users – last month you helped us set a brand new record.
In January, we saw more than 5.1 million monthly active users on our app, which is an all-time best. What’s more, that number was up by 43% on January 2013, with more sports fans than ever discovering and engaging with theScore’s mobile-first, comprehensive and personalized approach to delivering sports news, scores and stats.
User sessions also reached 161 million (up 93% year-over-year), as fans came back to theScore time-after-time to get their fix of real time sports content.
This new record comes on the back of our strong first quarter for 2014, where we saw record user and revenue growth.
Passing the five million mark for the first time is testament to the hard work of our team and their dedication in creating a truly mobile-first experience for sports fans, unique to anything else out there. We thank every single person who uses theScore – we wouldn’t exist without you.
As always, we’re always working hard to make our app even better. So if you have any feedback about ways we can improve your experience, please reach out via Twitter or email via thescoreapp(at)thescore.com.
In the meantime, stay tuned for the next big updates coming your way. With the Winter Olympics, NCAA Basketball Championships, hockey play-offs and the World Cup on the horizon, this is going to be an exciting few months for all of us.
