Mobile apps have revolutionized and recreated just about everything from music, entertainment, wallets to books. It's about time college basketball brackets received a makeover.
From the quirky and inventive duo behind the iPhone Glif hands-free tripod and The Cosmonaut wide-grip stylus, Dan Provost and Tom Gerhardt, comes the Simple Bracket app. The project has raised $3,000 of its $10,000 goal with 27 more days on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. There's a plethora of bracket apps and tools online, but this is the coolest we've seen.
In app-form, you'll be able to fill out your bracket and check the friendly leader board on the go. Simple Bracket boasts an elegant scrollable interface and an advanced way of scoring a bracket (developed by biostatistician Dr. Ted Gooley based in Seattle). Best of all, users can sign in with a Twitter account to waste no time before inviting your competition.
The app creators hope to have the product (that's "essentially complete") available in the Apple App Store in time for March Madness.
