Chat the Game Sports Social Networking iPhone App Launched

PRESS RELEASE: Chat the Game iPhone app enhances live sporting event experience for fans through real time geolocation-based chat

Chat the Game introduces a new dimension of interaction for sports fans at live sporting events. Chicago-area sports fan and entrepreneur Gray Lyster developed the concept and selected BolderImage, a Chicago-area web design and mobile application development firm, to make it a reality. "The idea is to provide an interactive event experience for ticketholders by creating a geographically­‐defined chat forum," Lyster explains.

Harnessing two extraordinarily popular concepts, geolocation and social networking, Chat the Game provides a forum for attendees at live events to connect, cheer, smack talk, ask questions, share statistics and make plans for after the game in a live chat format.

Participation in a chat room for a specific sporting event is restricted to those users whose mobile devices are located in the area of the stadium, arena or sporting venue. Can't attend? You can still liven up those commercial breaks by watching what ticket holders have to say from the comfort of your living room.

"BolderImage made a great partner in the development of Chat the Game.  Their team is easy to work with and was instrumental in helping develop my idea," says Lyster. BolderImage has developed and launched several successful iPhone applications for clients nationwide.

The application is now available nationwide for free through the iTunes App Store, although initial supported sporting events will be limited to the Chicago market. Chicago sports fans will be able to chat live while attending events at Wrigley Field, US Cellular Field, United Center, Soldier Field, Arlington Park, Allstate Arena and Toyota Park. In the coming months, fans in all major U.S. cities can expect to have access to this great new platform.

Chat the Game is a great way to meet new friends, stoke rivalries, and learn more about your favorite teams. Check out the Chat the Game web site and download Chat the Game today on iTunes.

Based on Chat the Game's great concept, BolderImage designed and built the Chat the Game iPhone app in XCODE with .NET for the backstage.
