NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With patent pending technology and registered design patents, the first-of-its-kind app enables live interaction with NBA and NCAA games. At any point during a live game, users can:
- Predict the next successful field goal in real time
- Select the team that scores next
- Choose the player who makes the shot
- Determine which zone on the court the shot will be taken
The unique interface, developed in conjunction with Frog design, allows users to make a quick and easy prediction, without being distracted from the live game.
Using advanced AI algorithms, the app determines in real time the probability of each prediction to happen and, depending on the outcome, it rewards the user with game coins and various in-app rewards.
The Hoopit app prides itself on social engagement, allowing players to challenge friends to duels and even create private leagues with their colleagues. Hoopit tracks the success of each individual user and stack ranks all statistics in a global hall of fame of prodigy predictors.
When there are no live picks or games available, users can practice general predictions over future games (winners, top scorer, total points etc.) and gain automatic access to in depth pre-game stats and analysis.
The app is free to download and play and there are no ads to interfere with the user experience. Players are able to enhance their war chest with exclusive in-app purchases.
“It was exciting to see the enthusiastic reception of the App during the NBA playoffs”, says Itay Barak, Co-Founder and CEO of Vivala Technologies. “Users easily accepted the challenge of pinpointing the location of scores, although this kind of interaction was never done before. We are happy to enhance the viewing experience of basketball fans throughout the world and looking forward to launching additional Apps catered to many other popular sports”.
