TORONTO, March 8, 2012 /CNW/ - yapAgame.com Inc is pleased to announce the world premiere of yapAgame - the World's first mobile social media platform dedicated to sports fans, at this week's South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, TX.
Sports fans always have something to say! They are the most vocal, most dedicated, most social people in the world. They always have an opinion about the team, the game, the athletes, the officials, the season or the 30 ft. jump shot that won the game!
Using iPhones, iPads, Android Mobile Devices or BlackBerry Playbooks, yapAgame connects fans, teams and leagues like nothing available today - fans share conversations, gossip and the inside scoop on teams, athletes and today's game!
yapAgame is a free app that can now be downloaded for Android from the Android Marketplace and the iPhone version from the Apple Store. yapAgame is currently in the approval process for the BlackBerry PlayBook, and will be available soon.
Northof41.org has selected yapAgame as one of five Canadian digital media start-ups to participate in the Canadian Pavilion at SXSW on March 10 and 11 at the Old School Grill - 6th and Trinity - a few steps from the Austin Convention Center. The event will showcase Canada's hottest new digital media companies - including yapAgame.
yapAgame was developed because sports fans deserve a dedicated platform that is devoid of chatter about the latest teen idol, political opinion, restaurant reviews and the random noise that floods social media channels. Sporting events generate the greatest traffic volume of any topic on social media sites and yapAgame is dedicated to those fans. It is where they can let the world know what they are thinking about the game, the coach the team, the season, or the last play…
