GrabFan Sports iPhone App Combines Predicting And Fun

I am an avid sports fan – I think that’s fair to say considering the topic of this blog. One of the more unfortunate parts about being such a sports nut is I am a small part of the group who loyally forks over somewhere around $2 billion per year to Las Vegas thanks to sports betting.

No matter how good you think you are at beating the odds there are two gaping problems with betting on sports. First you have to bet on only what Vegas offers you and, this will probably come as a shock to you, Sin City stacks those odds in their favor. Second you’re betting with your hard earned money that will more than likely not be around after the clock hits 0:00.

Thanks to the sports iPhone app GrabFan, a completely free and completely legal app, both of those sports betting problems become a thing of the past.

A Sports iPhone App Vaulting You Into Fantasy 2.0

sports iphone app

GrabFan is a sports iPhone app that allows the fan to create his or her own predictions on real-time events and rack up points called GrabBucks to earn true rewards any fan can use.

Is your hometown team facing a pitcher they have been known to clobber in the past? Use that knowledge to predict a positive outcome and get your well-earned points afterward.

“This idea came from the fact we think fantasy sports are fundamentally flawed,” said Steve Smith, co-founder of the sports iPhone app. “People have a great enthusiasm the first few weeks but if they start losing that interest is lost. This way people are always winning and keeping interest.”

In addition to creating a real-time proposition with this app you can also create that prop essentially care-free, as you will be using GrabFan credits rather than your own money. No more arguments with the significant other and sleeping on the couch after unfortunate money decisions, all thanks to GrabFan! And they’re still looking toward the future for their loyal sports iPhone app users.

“Our road map has us being able to offer daily challenges for players by the time the NFL season rolls around,” Smith said. “We also want to have some location-based services like sports bars giving drink discounts as you’re playing at their bar. That bar can push out their own questions and have a leaderboard for fans to see who is earning the most discounts.”

As if that wasn’t enough, GrabFan is also incredibly easy to use. The only thing a sports fan has to do to generate their prediction is follow four simple steps: select a team from any league, choose what is going to happen to that team and when it will happen, invite friends on Facebook to join in and redeem your GrabBucks for real prizes to take home.

GrabBucks Let You Earn Points For Prizes

All of those things are great features, certainly enough to make any sports fan want to download this sports iPhone app. There is one extra thing that GrabFan brings to the table that puts it in the upper echelon of sports apps – the incomparable rewards the sports iPhone app offers to fans who earn points. GrabBucks are currently redeemable for $25 Gift Cards to SeatCrunch.com, Flex Watches, and San Francisco Giants Tickets. Coupons to your local bars are coming soon.

“SeatCrunch.com has been great to work with. They have seats for everything from sporting events to concerts to theater tickets.” Smith said. “They’re giving StubHub a run for their money.”

In addition to all of these incredible app characteristics, GrabFan also has plenty of other positive features to make downloading this app a no-brainer for any sports fan. Some of those include full integration with Facebook to ensure that you can tell everyone you’re predictions are better than theirs, daily loyalty challenges to earn extra free points and a fully customizable avatar bobblehead to be sure your GrabFan account is truly yours.

“We think this is fantasy 2.0,” said Cassidy Lavin, co-founder of GrabFan. “Even winning is not as exciting as the first week of fantasy sports and this way every day is like a first week.”

From self-created propositions to earning GrabBucks to redeeming those GrabBucks for real prizes, GrabFan has found a way to not only make predicting sports fun but also do it in a way so that any fan can participate in their fantasy 2.0 sports iPhone app. The only recommendation to make here is to download this app as soon as possible to get your practice in and have the leg up on friends and competitors.

Plus it will help prevent you from becoming another money source for Vegas.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
