JockSpin® is no more.We did some cool things in our short existence. We assembled an awesome team of impassioned advisors and associates. We created an elegant, unique, and easy to use iPhone and iPad app to navigate news and tweets curated for one's favorite sports teams. Featured on Bloomberg, MSN, and others, and named "one of the best sports news apps of its kind" by The Examiner, our app was favored by countless users. We developed a powerful back-end that sourced news from thousands of publishers and tweets from all the resources available via Twitter. We created a proprietary zero lag caching application to reduce server load and maximize speed while keeping content 100% current. We made our thousands of daily headlines available to Wordpress sites via a plugin, downloaded and utilized by thousands of sites and the number one sports plugin at Wordpress.org. There's more, considerably more, but in the end we just couldn't get the business case to work, with the final "nail in the coffin" being the the rather surprising discovery that users were almost completely uninterested in tweets. Who knew?
It was fun, truly fun, but alas, was.
