TORONTO, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Basketball fans can now get even closer to the action after Score Media Inc. (TSX: SCR) released a host of upgrades to its popular ScoreMobile iPhone app in time for an exciting month of college basketball.

With more than 3.6 million unique users every month, ScoreMobile is already considered one of the leading free sports apps in the world.

And now the best sports app just got even better, with iPhone users able to access a host of new features to follow college basketball's premier tournament this month, including:

  • Tournament Bracket - a new scrollable/swipe-able bracket that will keep you up-to-date with all the action throughout each round of the tournament.
  • Key Upset Alerts - In addition to the usual alerts for game start, half time and close game, there will also be push alerts when a lower-ranked team is ahead of a higher-ranked team at halftime, with 5:00 left in the game or at the end of the game. If there's an upset that's in the making, ScoreMobile will let users know!

The app is also a dream for fantasy team coaches everywhere, thanks to the new "Player Card Profile" feature which carries all the recent news articles from Rotowire about their featured stars, keeping them on top of the latest injury and selection news.

Benjie Levy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Score Media Inc, said: "ScoreMobile was already a must-have app for sports fans, but these upgrades make it even more indispensable during what promises to be a thrilling month for basketball fans."

Download ScoreMobile from the Apple iTunes App Store or visit www.scoremobile.com to find out more. ScoreMobile is also available for BlackBerry, Android and Windows mobile devices, as well as iPad, PlayBook and Windows Slate.
