Ah, March, when people who otherwise have no interest in college hoops suddenly become fans because 1.) it gives them an excuse to blow off work that most bosses understand, and 2.) it allows them to follow a bracket tournament. And who doesn’t love a good bracket tournament? Well, many, I’d expect, but PocketBracket 2012 isn’t for them. It’s for all of you who know where Villanova is.
PocketBracket 2012 allows fans to create unlimited NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament brackets, organize pools, and follow tournament games directly from your iPhone or iPod touch.
Brackets are automatically scored and ranked. Users can create and join pools to compete among friends, family, and co-workers. Follow the tournament games and scores with up-to-the minute scoring. PocketBracket is the only March Madness application to offer all of these features in one application and across multiple platforms.
PocketBracket 2012 is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices. This year’s version includes several new features such as a real-time tournament bracket and GameTalk. PocketBracket prides itself on including additional features in response to user feedback. PocketBracket plans to release an upgrade including support for iPad and a free HTML5 web app that allows users to create a tournament bracket in the coming weeks.
The 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament data won’t be available until Selection Sunday, March 11, at 8:15pm ET, but you can test drive it using the 2011 data until then. On March 11, PocketBracket will automatically update and remove your sample brackets so you are ready for March Madness. You can then set up your pool(s) and invite people to participate via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.
PocketBracket 2012 is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and requires iOS 5.0 or later. It’s available now in the App Store for $0.99.
