– Biggest app update in company history includes sleek new user interface and enhanced multimedia content offering
TORONTO, August 24 2017 – theScore, Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) (“theScore”) today launched the biggest ever update to its flagship app ‘theScore.’
Available now on the App Store and launching soon on Google Play, theScore has been comprehensively redesigned with the goal of truly empowering the sports fan’s experience with even deeper team coverage, a sleek new user interface and a dynamically enhanced multimedia content offering. Already one of the most popular sports apps in North America, theScore now makes it easier for its millions of users to access and discover the news, scores and stats that matter to them.
“We believe this update truly makes theScore the only sports app fans need, empowering that experience of following the teams you love while making it even faster to get real-time scores and stats,” said John Levy, CEO and Founder of theScore.
“While we’ve been careful to preserve, and enhance, the essence of what’s made theScore so popular with millions, with lightning fast scoring updates and detailed stats, we’ve also vastly improved our ability to provide deep team-by-team coverage, helping sports fans to find and discover content they’ll want to consume and share.”
The new-look app has been designed to make it even easier for fans to uncover the biggest stories, scores and stats from their favorite teams.
With coverage from every major league and competition, fans can build a personalized ‘Favorites’ feed of multimedia content from their top teams, players and leagues, including stories from theScore’s mobile-first newsroom and curated editorial and social content from sources around the web.
Fans can also use the new ‘Discover’ section to uncover the biggest stories and topics that have sports fans talking.
“This update is the result of many months of development work, based off analyzing data and direct user feedback,” added Mr. Levy. “But this signals the beginning, not the end, of our hard work. We’ll be working non-stop to ensure theScore continues to meet – and exceed – the expectations of sports fans everywhere.”
The update lands right in time for the new football season, with fans using theScore to follow their favorite teams and players, while never missing a scoring play, trade rumor or injury update thanks to its highly-customizable and in-depth alert options. The re-designed theScore app is now available for free download from the App Store or at www.AppStore.com and will be available in Google Play soon.
