TORONTO, March 30, 2015 /CNW/ - Sprylogics International Corp. ("Sprylogics" or the "Company") (TSXV: SPY), a technology provider of semantic search and local mobile search for consumers and businesses, is pleased to announce that its BreakingSports app has eclipsed 100,000 downloads in March.
BreakingSports has been well received by sports fans and fantasy players and most recently by those who are following teams or their brackets in the NCAA March Madness tournament.
In addition, the app has garnered other valuable metrics including the delivery of over 10 million notifications to its users, via more than 1.1 million pieces of relevant, filtered and categorized content. Users average over 8 custom subscriptions (of their chosen teams and/or players) and are viewing more than 8 pages per session, leading to significant engagement and session time, throughout the day. This meaningful level of engagement will continue to grow as users beef up their subscriptions and hone their preferred choice of filters.
