New Second Screen App enables fans to play during live World Cup matches

June 19, 2014 in Sports (E)

[] London, United Kingdom - Realtime Games today is proud to announce the release of Ultimate Fan Live 1.2, an update to their popular sports app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Ultimate Fan Live offers fans a social way to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Fans who are not able to attend the World Cup in Brazil this summer can play the second screen fantasy football game using any iOS device. Instead of just watching on TV, Ultimate Fan Live players can compete in real time against their Facebook friends in a second screen game that syncs with every live match.

The unique mobile app provides a platform in which up to five friends compete against each other during live matches. They pick players and earn points based on players' live performance on the pitch. In this way, friends engage with the game in real time and compete to top the Ultimate Fan Live ranks.

"Football viewing is no longer solely a passive spectator experience," said Sohail Godall, CEO and founder of Ultimate Fan Live. "Fantasy Football games are outdated, appealing only to hardcore fans that invest for an entire season. The promise of second screen offers an exciting new way to enjoy the World Cup with your friends."

Unlike traditional fantasy football leagues, Ultimate Fan Live can be used for short 90-minute games, so players do not need to commit for an entire season. It will enable millions of World Cup viewers around the world to have an even deeper level of enjoyment of matches as they try to follow the players in their game and not just those with the ball.

What's New in Version 1.2:
* Critical bug fix on App opening screen user login
* Power-up feature bug fix
* Chat bug fix
* Timeline scoring correction

Philip Kelly-Ayo, an engineer who has been one of the app's beta testers commented: "As Ultimate Fan Live is based on real data it offers a level of social connectivity and a deeper investment in the match being broadcast. It's also a great source of banter with my friends!"

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 34.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Ultimate Fan Live 1.2 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Sports category for all 2014 FIFA World Cup live matches.
