Evri unveils mobile sports apps


Evri, a provider of topic-based content discovery,
announced the launch of SportStream, a suite of sports applications for iPhone
and Android devices, powered by the Evri platform.


SportStream Football, which kicks off the SportStream app
family prior to the start of the NFL season, is the first and only sports app
in the marketplace to connect real-time push notifications with in-game
commentary through social channels.


SportStream Football provides an immersive information
experience for fans with real-time news from thousands of content sources. The
application integrates the best and latest football information with each fan’s
social feeds, allowing users to live tweet game highlights as they happen.


SportStream Football also provides in-game score updates
and play-by-play summaries for every NFL game, including push notifications for
key moments throughout each contest. With personalization options for specific
teams and key injury and trade news, SportStream Football also presents a
valuable tool for fantasy football owners.


“Football fans, and sports fans in general, are the
ultimate passion-driven consumers of information, and truly represent what
Evri’s approach to content discovery is all about,” said Will Hunsinger,
CEO of Evri.


“Our SportStream apps offer sports fanatics a
convenient, easy way to further engage with the teams, players and games they
love, while connecting users’ interests with like-minded people in their social
graph,” Hunsinger added.


The SportStream suite provides the most comprehensive and
interactive experience of any mobile sports apps on the market. SportStream
allows users to comment on each action-packed moment with new capabilities that
allow fans to tweet out game highlights and updates, as they happen, to
followers and friends.


This innovative approach to fan engagement allows users
to connect sports information with personal social graphs, making SportStream
apps a must-have in-game companion for any sports enthusiast.


SportStream Football represents a new era of Evri-powered
sports apps. Other Evri apps include the popular EvriThing Baseball app and
over 200 team and topic based sports applications now available in the Nokia
Ovi Store.


Prior iterations of Evri sports apps, currently available
under the “EvriThing Sports” brand, will be re-launched as part of
the SportStream suite.
