Fanatix Selected by Apple as Featured App on App Store

Posted by

Apple have selected the brand new and free Fanatix App as one of their featured apps in their Store.

The app makes excellent use of the iPhone’s new IOS5 operating system and especially the functionality provided by iMessage, iPhone’s new messaging service. The clever chaps at Apple clearly like the service and we would like to thank them for their support as we hope to prompt fan discovery and group messaging around live events across the globe.

Fanatix will seamlessly match your Facebook friends and their activities with a database of over 200,000 sports events and concerts at more than 16,000 venues in 186 countries, before connecting you via iMessage. The platform makes it easy to discover which friends are watching the same game, or going to the same concert, and start a private group chat with them from anywhere in the world, for free.

For live sports fans, Fanatix will find out which friends are at the game or who is watching on TV, and allow users to initiate private group chats; share opinion, photos and video; and send taunts to rival fans. For fans going to a concert, Fanatix will find friends going to the same gig, and enable them to open a group message to arrange tickets, travel and general shenanigans.
