ARVADA, Colo., Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Grid News Bureau announced today the launch of Gridiron Moe, a new football app that promises to add unique fun to the experience of watching sports. Fans watching a live NFL game can now vote on their mobile device what they think the offense and defense should do, and see what plays the fan crowd is calling, during live games.
"We want to re-imagine how we watch sports together," said Rhonda Persidis, Senior Director, Sales and Marketing, for Gridiron Moe. "We all believe we know what the quarterback and opposing defense should do. Gridiron Moe gives us the voice to call plays, and see if anybody else agrees, in real time. This is a unique and new kind of sports engagement fun with our families, our friends, and our co-workers."
The new football app is aimed at the very large audience of sports fans, friends and families that watch a game on TV and use their mobile device at the same time. According to a recent report by the GfK MRI iPANEL Reporter, over 40% of TV watching is combined with using a mobile device. "We see families getting into watching sports and football together, trying to call plays, learning about the game of football, and having fun in new and unexpected ways," Persidis continued.
Gridiron Moe can be played by non-expert and expert sports fans alike, and includes a core football playbook for fans that want to learn the most basic offense and defense plays that NFL teams run. Sophisticated technology integrates the play calling and fan votes with the live game and every down, and displays what the crowd believes should be the most popular play.
"Expect some cool surprises during the off-season, too," Persidis continued, "keeping the fun of the game top-of mind while waiting for the Season to start again."
Gridiron Moe is available for download from the iTunes App Store, and costs $3.99 per football season. For more information, please visit www.gridironmoe.com
Gridiron Moe is patent-pending and is a product of Grid News Bureau, a start-up Media and Entertainment company developing apps and services that capture and share the sentiment of audiences in real time, during significant public events.
