PlayUP is a sports fan’s dream come true featuring real-time social sharing with others during live major sporting events happening worldwide. Truly, this app is perfect for the avid sports fan. Why? Because you can interact with others during live sporting events for the major US sports (MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL) and many other world sports categories like Soccer (true football), Rugby (several leagues) and Cricket through instant messaging, Facebook, and Twitter. While I am not up to speed on Cricket, I can easily get into sharing messages (friendly trashtalk and taunts, etc.) during NFL and NHL games.
Also, while communicating real-time during live games you can create a hangout (public or private) where you can instant message your friends or others watching the game, which is a nice feature. Beyond the communication, you will get basic information on sports stats; let’s take Major league Baseball (MLB) for example: you get which team, who is pitching, as well as batting, the inning, the outs and men on base. Most other sports will only have the current score, but I found during my testing this app to be very current in relation to real-time scoring. There are also team schedules for games played for the entire seasons and some other relevant information like what week the current sport is in. Something to look forward to is that there will be more sports added in the future, and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see other sports like NASCAR, Golf and Tennis thrown into the mix — these would be some great additions to this application. The simple user interface is probably one of the best parts of this application allowing you to easily (with big pictures) sort through all sports (My Sports), and all available upon entering the app. PlayUP is great for ardent and/or social sports’ fans because it enables you to really get into the games with other fans around the world by chatting it up during games, and best of all this app is completely FREE.
