850 Sports Digest App Fills You in on All the Matches in Less than 10 Minutes
We live in a busy world and despite the fact that you are a football fanatic (or any other sport for that matter), it could be that you miss out on some of the matches because of your routine.
The only other alternative would be to go find an online source of information. Since we have smartphones now, you’d rather do that through an app wouldn’t you?
However co-founder of 850 Sports Digest, Jon Bishop, claims that sports news app in general have been lacking the structure that would allow users to make use of their time effectively.
To that effect, Bishop has launched an app of his own, and boasts that their app is better because if focuses on quality of journalism, short content and professionalism:
Sports news apps are primarily flawed. The quality of content varies, the UI’s are usually complicated and it’s hard to find what you are looking for. Content is often sourced through aggregation, content farms, re-writes or, as is common with many media sites today, having rushed, overworked reporters spewing our words as quickly as possible.
Our approach is to focus our efforts around the journalists, give them the ability to write quality, short content exclusively for the app that is professional and informative to the reader.
Their idea is to fill you in on everything that has happened in the sports world in the past day or so without taking more than 10 minutes of your time. They say it is perfect for morning commute to work, and that is actually where the name of the app comes from.
If you check out the 850 Sport Digest app, which is currently available for iOS and Android, you will see that it has a simplistic design that lets see all the happenings of the last day in a one page view or separately presented summaries of all the matches.
Right now, the 850 Sports Digest app is looking like the Summly for sports, who knows it might actually get there!
