Football is a sport that brings everyone together, even if you re not a diehard fan or have never played the game yourself. The rush of energy that comes with rooting for your favorite team and arm-chair-quarterbacking an entire game is something people around the world do every Sunday.
For those who need to live, eat and breathe football throughout the week, fantasy football is an essential part of the pageantry leading up to every week s packed NFL schedule. It s a packed space, with Yahoo!, ESPN and the NFL itself1 having online leagues you can join with your friends and strangers.
The model hasn t changed though, with the premise being selecting the players that you think will perform the best throughout the season, collecting points as they play games week after week.
A familiar name and face, four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback, Joe Montana2, has his own spin on fantasy football, and will be releasing an app called iMFL prior to the start of this year s NFL season. The app is part fantasy football, part predictive social game, with the ability to place bets with friends as games play out in real-time. For example, you could guess that the next play will be an interception.
If you re right, the points are yours. The hope is that you ll be playing around with iMFL on your iPhone or iPad while you watch the game with friends, no matter where they are.
The app isn t available yet, but it will be out on Apple s App Store, so get ready. It s a crowded space, but I think with the in-app purchases and constant real-time engagement, iMFL could do well.
This isn t a one-time thing for Montana, as he tells me that there are a few other projects that he s working on which he ll share with us soon.
It was impressive back in 1991, but the Madden series won out and become a blockbuster success:
CrowdMob is offering merchants and retailers a way to distribute their local deals through third-party apps, incentivizing mobile users to buy a deal in exchange for virtual currency or goods.
Users who play certain mobile games on Android and iOS devices will see a nearby deal offered in a mobile ad, which they can purchase immediately without leaving the app.

Elie Baup was named Wednesday as Didier Deschamps’ replacement as the new coach of Marseille.
Baup was unveiled as the French giant’s new manager 48 hours after Deschamps quit the Velodrome club having led them to the 2010 title with two years left on his contract.
In a statement on their website Marseille confirmed ex-Bordeaux boss Baup’s appointment.
“Elie Baup is appointed coach of Olympique Marseille for two seasons,” the statement read.
“Elie Baup will link up with the players at Crans-Montana where they have been on a training camp since Wednesday.
He will be presented to the media on Thursday afternoon.” The 57-year-old Baup managed Bordeaux between 1998 and 2003, guiding them to the league title in 1999.
He then had spells with Toulouse and Nantes, and has been out of contract since being sacked by Nantes in 2009.
Deschamps, who experienced a difficult time last season with the team finishing only 10th, is favourite to take over from Laurent Blanc as coach of France.
