Spothon Debuts Sports Social Media Viewing Application

Ready to slug it out with PlayUp and OneLouderApps is Japan-based Spothon, Inc., which allows people to interact on mobile devices at the same time they are using their mobile devices to watch a game.

Spothon is the latest in a growing list of mobile sports application developers looking for ways to enhance the sports fan’s viewing experience via mobile devices and tablets. All of them may be slightly ahead of the market because, although significant numbers of people are moving their viewing experience to mobile devices, sponsors and advertisers tend to be reluctant to step up with significant commitments to the direct marketing opportunities popular applications enable. Today, sponsorship and advertising dollars are centralized around big brands.

Spothon’s twist is that it allows people to participate within a virtual stadium, which is has dubbed “real view.”  Today, Spothon supports professional Soccer, Baseball, Football, Ice Hockey and Rugby. The application is available for Android.

Here’s a demo:
