As the best basketball teams in Asia battle for supremacy in the 27th International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asia Championship, avid hoops fans can follow the games through a newly launched basketball mobile application.
Smart Communications and its subsidiary Voyager Innovations recently unveiled PinoyHoops, a mobile app which gives users access to real-time updates and scores, game alerts and highlights, player stats, standings, and schedules, among a host of other features.
?The launch of PinoyHoops coincides perfectly with the country?s hosting of the 27th FIBA Asia Championship where millions of Filipinos are rooting for Gilas Pilipinas to win it all,? said Orlando B. Vea, chief wireless advisor at Smart.
?With the mobile app, Smart is proud to bring hardcourt basketball action and updates closer to the millions of basketball fans not only here but also abroad.?
Now available for free download from the Google Play online store and soon on the Apple App Store, the locally developed app also enables users to follow their favorite teams and players, get live status updates from basketball personalities, and share news stories with their friends on social networking sites, all at a touch of a button.
Pinoy basketball fans of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) can also get their daily dose of basketball action as the mobile app also covers the two local basketball leagues.
