"I reviewed this app recently and really like what the creator has done with it," said Mike Vallez, founder of Crazy Mike's Apps. "The app has a great user interface, is very easy to use and makes tracking your college brackets enjoyable."
PocketBracket allows anyone to create unlimited NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament brackets. Brackets are automatically scored and ranked on the PocketBracket Network. Users can also create and join pools to compete among friends, family, and coworkers. In addition, follow the tournament with game and score updates. The app comes preloaded with 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament data so you can test-drive the application before the 2010 tournament. You can create sample brackets and begin organizing your pools. Once 2010 data is available on Selection Sunday, PocketBracket will automatically update and remove your sample brackets and your pools will be ready for the 2010 tournament.
PocketBracket is currently the only application of its kind in the mobile marketpace. With an initial release to the iPhone App Store last year, PocketBracket quickly became the best and most popular NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament app. On Selection Sunday, PocketBracket climbed to #1 in Sports and the Top 100 app categories. This year, PocketBracket 2.0 was released to the App Store with dozens of new features, including a new user interface. PocketBracket included additional features in response to user feedback. PocketBracket really allows users to drive the app's direction. PocketBracket also released to the Android Market with a full-featured version.
PocketBracket evolves the way you complete your NCAA Tournament brackets. First, there's no more paper. PocketBracket sarcastically boasts that "2.5 million trees will survive" by using the application. Second, it automatically scores and ranks your brackets. No more adding up points yourself. Finally, PocketBracket has a "SmartPick" feature that will advance a team to later rounds of the tournament. No more repeatedly filling in a team to the final rounds. The bottom line, you will totally score with PocketBracket. PocketBracket Network Challenge begins March 14th, 2010 - Game On!
