Bantr – Interactive Football application launches for iPhone
London, United Kingdom – Bantr makes live football interactive. The Bantr app gives football fans a way of discussing and voting on the match in real time with other fans from around the world. Whether you are at the game, down the pub or sat on the couch, the app allows you to check-in to games and vote on the action wherever you are.
Bantr came about as a result of Roy Hodgson’s ill fated reign as Liverpool boss. Every day Peter McCormack and his Bantr co-founders would discuss how badly he was doing, disagreeing on his line-ups, which tactical changes should have been made and trying to gage how strong his fan support was. Debating these points ad infinitum they realised that a conclusion would be difficult as no barometer of the view from the terraces actually existed.
Of these mid morning verbal jousts, the notion of making live football interactive and creating a way of finding tangible fan opinion for the first time, was born. Spurred on by this creative seed, the idea of a website allowing fans to vote on every aspect of a manager’s performance, his decisions and their actions taken mid game was pursued, leading to the creation of Bantr.
Since that day 6 months ago we have worked with Bantr refining our product to offer the most innovative and enjoyable interactive football service possible.
Our users have been excellent and provided us with fantastic feedback on all the features they loved, like our manager approval index, the ability to vote for penalties, dives and other key incidents in real time and see whether the rest of the Bantr community agrees or not, helping to make the product better and better every step of the way.
The result of this is the Bantr mobile app which has perfected what Bantr does best, providing a slick, live and interactive match day experience on your phone that offers unique insight into the minds of a valuable commodity – fan approval.
