SportCaster App Adds Hockey in Version 2.0 Update

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Oct. 6, 2011 – In conjunction with the start of the 2011-2012 NHL season, hockey fans can now enjoy all the great features of SportCaster, the world’s leading live sports app with a social voice. OneLouder today announced the new 2.0 version of its SportCaster App now supports NHL hockey, in addition to NFL and NCAA football.

SportCaster 2.0 is a free upgrade for current users.  New users can download the app free for the iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store and for Android smartphones on Android Market.

SportCaster is the first app to combine live stats, schedules and game summaries with commentary from top sports analysts, players and fans on Twitter. The app leverages OneLouder’s content curation platform to instantly connect fans with the most relevant, real-time Twitter content tailored to specific leagues, athletes and teams – even if they don’t have a Twitter account. This delivers a customized view of the hottest news before it’s picked up by mainstream media, paired with licensed content including the latest scores, stats, league standings, team schedules and more at-a-glance.

Fans can track each game with a live feed of side-by-side tweets from both teams, before, during and after the game. For example, when the San Jose Sharks are playing the New York Rangers, users can choose to receive a live feed of tweets from local experts; writers, analysts, and fans. Additional functionality exists for users who want to log-in with their Twitter account.

SportCaster currently supports NFL and NCAA football, NHL hockey, and will soon support MLB baseball postseason. Subsequently it will also add NBA and NCAA basketball, international soccer, and NASCAR as those sports begin their upcoming seasons.
