Have you ever been a player short for your footy team, or fielded for cricket with six sorry souls? Well, gone are the days of turning up to seven-a-side football with three players and getting thrashed 8-0! The Sociaballs app enables teams to find last-minute replacements in the local area, and is due to be launched in the coming months on iOS and Android platforms.
Richard Nash, director at CSI Media, is the brainchild of Sociaballs, but where did the idea come from?
“I play in a 7-a-side football team and occasionally, we’ll get a text from one of the guys saying they can’t make it tonight, leaving us having to find a replacement or, worse, play with a team of six. We are bad enough with seven! I also coach my son’s cricket team where we sometimes encounter the same problem."
So, our team set about devising a digital solution to help overcome this scenario and find last-minute stand-ins...
The Sociaballs app provides a unique and immersive experience for coaches and players alike.
A bright colour-scheme and vibrant logo form part of a distinct visual identity. The design has gone through several iterations to improve the UX with lots of neat features & functionality added to make an even more immersive experience. Our favourite features include the ability to organise fixture lists, a messaging platform to communicate with teammates, and the ability to find last-minute replacements! The app is due to launch later in 2019 on iOS and Android platforms...
We are really-excited about our first ever mobile app - this shows that the skill of our development team extends beyond the realms of web and software development into new and innovative avenues. We look forward to creating fresh and exciting apps for our clients!
