Posted by | App News | No Comments

End of Season Review

With Real Madrid confirmed as back-to-back Champions League winners, and the majority of European Leagues now over, it is the perfect time to give you a quick overview of what has been, by far, the biggest season yet for CrowdScores. Here are our highlights of the 2016-17 season:

1,000,000 Users

We saw an immense growth in the CrowdScores community last season. After starting the season with 150,000 active users, we surpassed 1,000,000 active users in March 2017.

We’ve also seen more and more users getting actively involved, which resulted in a total of 1,541,289 comments on matches over the course of the season.

With the help of everyone we can keep on growing, so please keep on spreading the word!

Most popular match

Any guesses for which was the most popular match on CrowdScores this season?

Real Madrid, Barcelona, La Liga, CrowdScores, iOS App, Live Score, Livescore, Season Review

It was the highly anticipated El Clásico on 23rd April. A huge 37,092 users predicted the outcome of the game, of which 38% were correct.

The end to end game, which finished with a dramatic last minute winner from Lionel Messi, inspired CrowdScores users who made a total of 9476 comments during the match, including 315 comments reacting to Messi’s final goal. This works out at a staggering 105 comments per minute during the game.

We’re covering more games than ever…

We covered a total of 49,944 games from 337 competitions. We also added a host of new competitions for you to follow including the AFC Champions League, Algerian Ligue 1 and the Indian’s Women League.

We will continue to improve our coverage next so CrowdScores users can follow more and more leagues from around the world.

CrowdScores at Google Play Playtime

Posted by | App News, Tech | No Comments

Google Play Playtime

Last Thursday, CrowdScores was kindly invited to Google Play Playtime at the National Centre for Circus Arts in Shoreditch, London.

The event was for leading Android developers to get tips and learn best practices for growing and succeeding on Google Play Store. It also provided an opportunity for developers to meet members of the Google Play team and share their feedback on the platform.

CrowdScores Android Google Play Playtime

The day began with a speech from Mark Bennett, the International Director at Google Play. He discussed a number of exciting new features, which included Instant Apps, Android Wear and Universal App Campaigns which are now a major part of our marketing strategy.

Up next was the Group Product Manager of Google Play, Ellie Powers. She discussed the more technical advancements we should look to expect from Android Studio and Firebase amongst other Google technologies.

Lunch brought about an opportunity for Google advocates to bond over Android shaped snacks or fight against one another in an Android style sumo suit. Needless to say, members of the CrowdScores team had a bout.

After lunch, sessions were split up into apps or mobile games. We opted for the app route which began with a session by Hugo Obi the Co-founder of Mailyo. Mailyo is a ‘premier gaming company’ that caters specifically for the African mobile market.

CrowdScores had 200,000 users from Africa in August 2016 so it was interesting to hear Hugo’s insight into the continent’s mobile usage behaviour. One statistic that particularly resonated with us was that 1 billion Android users will be using 2G on 2020. This means that for any application to be successful globally they need to be optimised for users with a limited mobile data budget.

Google Play Playtime CrowdScores Android

The day concluded with a panel of leading personalities in the mobile world, which featured representatives from King and Deliveroo. The main topic of discussion was the future of mobile and how they thought the industry would change in the future. It was fascinating to hear what they thought was in store for virtual reality, particularly regarding Google VR.

As passionate mobile developers, it was great to be given the opportunity to spend the day amongst so many like-minded people. We are extremely excited to build upon what we learnt at Google Play Playtime in order to improve our users’ experience at CrowdScores.
