Sports and television go together like Gumby and Pokey, or Peanut Butter and Jelly. But often people have trouble finding out what sports will be on television at what time, or what channel. Luckily, there’s now an app for that - Bleacher Buddy. This little app takes all the guesswork of wondering when and where favorite sports teams are being aired on television.
How the app works is fairly simple; enter a local zipcode, then look up whichever television provider games will be watched on. Then scroll through the various sports and leagues and Bleacher Buddy will display all the games being played that particular day. In some of the leagues, users can even look a couple of days out should they be planning a soiree with a group of friends centered around the game.
Bleacher Buddy is a no-frills experience, but the information is invaluable to the dedicated sports fan. It really does take the guessing game out of figuring out when a game is on. No longer will one have to fumble with those wallet sized schedules or scouring the internet to find a game. It also gives users a variety of different sports, some they wouldn’t even think about. Anything from NASCAR to English Premiership Soccer are featured in this app, giving it wide appeal to sports enthusiasts of all walks of life.
The app is also free, with ads scrolling on the bottom that aren’t terribly intrusive or bothersome. In fact, after a couple moments of usage the advertisement banner in Bleacher Buddy is hardly even noticeable.
This app also allows fans to interact with polls, where they can vote for which team they’d like to win a particular match. Additionally, users can also share the details of a sporting event with friends over social media. Every facet of Bleacher Buddy is super-easy to use and, as advertised, will get users to the information and matches they desire in only a couple of touches of the screen.
Sports are a big part of most cultures, and watching them on TV - whether in the comfort of one’s home or at the local watering hole - is quite the social gathering; bringing out the best and worst of us. Bleacher Buddy is an easy-to-use app that will take away the stress of finding one’s favorite sport, providing the liberty of concentrating on stressing out over the performance of a beloved team instead.
