NEW YORK, May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A perfect 5-star rating with over 200 user reviews. The No. 1 app when you search for 'fantasy sports' in the App Store. Boom Fantasy, launched just four months ago, has surged to become one of the most beloved new tech products for sports fans.
Created by the sports technology company Boom Shakalaka, the app offers a completely unique experience where fans can compete against each other while watching a live event. Instead of drafting a lineup, players make predictions in real time – Will LeBron James make his next shot? Will Clayton Kershaw strike out the next batter?
"We're thrilled at the overwhelmingly positive response we've received since launching our iOS app," said Stephen A. Murphy, co-founder and CEO of Boom Shakalaka. "Boom isn't really a daily fantasy app, but rather a completely new way to experience sports. Since the app's launch, Boom players have placed over 3 million predictions."
The rise to the top of the App Store caps off a banner month for Boom; the company also set records for monthly active users, total entries, and new depositors in May.
"We're heading into the summer with a ton of momentum," said Assaf Einat, co-founder and CTO of Boom Shakalaka. "We have many fun and innovative features in the pipeline that will continue to make Boom a unique and unrivaled experience for fans."
Boom Fantasy can be played for free in all U.S. states. A real-money version is available to residents 18 or older in 30 states.
