PlayUp has launched their app for following live sporting events and socializing with other fans on Android.
The app has an international flavor to it, as it covers leagues from all across the globe. Baseball fan and want to see what’s happening in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball? This app has live scores available from that league. The app will show updates and offer live chat with other fans of the Japanese league. As well, there’s live scores for international soccer leagues (including Turkey’s SÃ¼per Lig), cricket, Australian rules football, rugby, hockey, American football, and basketball, which is currently in the playoffs in the US. Live events are given display priority.
Once viewing a game, it’s possible to chat with other fans using the app, and to create private hangouts to chat with just specific people. The app attempts to bring a social experience to a category of app that has generally been used only for one-way checking of information. PlayUp is available now for free from Google Play.
