TORONTO, September 18 2013 – theScore, Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) (“theScore”) today released a fully optimized iOS 7 experience for its iPhone and iPad app to deliver even faster news, scores and stats along with a stylish new design.

theScore users with devices running iOS 7 will benefit from an attractive new user interface, adopting the eye-catching layers, animations and translucency of Apple’s most powerful mobile operating system ever. theScore also utilizes iOS 7’s powerful multitasking capabilities to deliver sports content faster than ever before.

theScore iOS 7 iPhone

“theScore has taken full advantage of the power of iOS 7 to give sports fans a stunning visual experience and instantaneous access to all the news and scores they care about,” said John Levy, Chairman and CEO of theScore. “iOS 7 truly unleashes the full potential of the theScore to deliver the ultimate, personalized mobile sports experience.”

Because iOS 7 learns what time of day users are most active on certain apps, it is able to predict when they want access to certain content. This allows theScore to be updated in the background, so content has already loaded by the time a user opens it.

This, coupled with the increased speed of the A7 chip in Apple’s new iPhone 5S device, enables theScore to deliver the fastest mobile sports content possible, with users also able to easily share news articles using Airdrop.

This is theScore’s second major update for iOS devices in less than a month and follows the transformation of its news offering to provide a truly mobile-first, comprehensive, curated real-time experience for sports fans. News sections across all leagues were completely revamped to deliver up-to-the-minute content, presented in “snackable bites” delivered by theScore’s in-house Content Team.

theScore is available on iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices and its mobile platforms are used by an average of 4.5 million users a month.
