A soccer app that fans will love
Designed For Daily Use
A mobile app for the most popular sport in the world is hardly a novel idea. The soccer app market is saturated with thousands of apps available, many of which have earned extremely good ratings and positive reviews. To avoid becoming "yet another soccer app", SoccerNow has to provide a unique selling points compared to those in the market.
Soccer fans use mobile apps to get updated scores and news everyday. For these kinds of app, user experience are far more important than first impression. Our UX process has to focus on information architect and user experience research.
With more than 450 leagues, 1000 news articles per day, 10.000 teams, 100.000 players and 400.000 game events, the amount of data that need to be stored and processed is not trivial. On the other hand, the app needs to update soccer scores every few seconds to provide a real-time experience. On top of that, during soccer matches, users will open the app at the same time whenever there is a an event like a goal, SoccerNow must be ready to scale and support millions of potential users visiting the app at the same time.
Our Secret Recipe
