Launching today, Fandium mobile app for iOS gives users a more social game day experience for professional and collegiate sports, complete with aggregated live content and streaming social feeds.
The Chicago-based company aims to be the social destination for sports fans to get the real story from inside the stadium, whether they’re in the crowd or on the couch. Fandium aggregates hashtag and geo-specific content from every major social media channel, providing users with a 360-degree view of the action related to a selected sporting event.
Users click into any of the current day’s games to get started. For example, a Fandium user following a Chicago Cubs game can view a feed filled with photos, comments and updates posted by fans at Wrigley Field from within the app and from external social platforms, such as Twitter and Instagram.
The app’s Ureport™ feature allows users to become a reporter by contributing their own insights and photos, letting any fan instantly become a part of the commentary – from the field to the stands to the couch.
If fans can’t make it to the stadium, they can get an inside look at what’s really happening at the game and the ability to interact with fans in attendance – a virtual game day ticket to any sporting event.
“Complete with scores, statistics, fan-to-fan challenges, plus real-time photos and an interactive social stream, Fandium is the all-in-one destination that’s a must-have companion for complete action on game day,” said Prentice Salter, Fandium cofounder and Conor Sports CEO.
“Fandium provides sports fans with all the information, entertainment and interaction they want on game day, all in one place. With Fandium, watching sports is no longer a passive activity. Fandium takes you inside the game, giving you the tools to interact with other sports fanatics and experience your favorite teams like never before.”
