Leaguevine Mobile uses the latest in web technologies so you can simply use the app from your browser without having to download anything. Just visit m.leaguevine.com in your smartphone browser to try it out! If you don't have a smartphone, you can still visit this link in any desktop browser to see what it's like.
While building Leaguevine Mobile, we focused a lot of our efforts to make it as easy as possible to submit scores for the games you are at. Our hope is that by making it so easy, you will want to submit updates during every single point of your games. Your friends, family, and fans back home want to know what is happening, so now you can give them this real time information with just a few taps.
With Leaguevine Mobile, you can easily view scores, pool standings, bracket results, and Twitter updates right from your smartphone. We've kept the interface tight and simple to make it easy to find what you want in the fewest taps possible. If you're away from your computer and a tournament you want to follow is using Leaguevine, you can get up to the second updates no matter where you are.
Leaguevine Mobile's settings page gives you the option to log into both your Leaguevine account and your Twitter account. If you are only logged into Leaguevine, then your updates will be broadcast via leaguevine.com and m.leaguevine.com. If you choose to log into Twitter as well, your updates will be broadcast not only to Leaguevine and Leaguevine Mobile, but right to your Twitter status. Leaguevine Mobile will automatically format your update nicely to say something of the form: "Wisconsin 12 - Carleton 10. Big huck to Alter! http://bit.ly/g4MwL1". This way, you do not need to keep typing in the team names every point and can focus instead on providing entertaining commentary.
If you are a tournament director, we make your job during the tournament much easier. There are a few main benefits for using Leaguevine at your tournament. From the faq:
Because Leaguevine Mobile is using the very latest web technologies, it may not work on older phones. We have tested it on quite a few different platforms, but we are aware that it will not work on every phone. We're sorry if you have a phone that cannot run this app.
The phones that we expect Leaguevine Mobile to run well on are: iPhone (v. 3 or better), Blackberry (v. 5.0 or better), Android (v. 2.1 or better), Windows Mobile (v. 7.0 and better), Palm Pre, and Palm Pixie. If your phone is newer and better than these phones, then there is a good chance it will run on yours as well. For even more detailed information, see if your phone falls under the "Grade A browser support" in this chart.
