Thuuz Sports – now your ultimate TV companion for the Fall

Android tablet users, we’ve been thinking of you lately! Thuuz Sports 6.5, now available in Google Play, includes a completely redesigned interface for everyone.

While the update is a breath of fresh air for mobile users, we especially focused on optimizing the experience for our Android tablet users.  Why? Our recent research indicates almost 60% of our fanatic Thuuzers use their tablets to complement their sports viewing experience . The updated app acts as the perfect 2nd screen for sports, serving as heat map to everything live or upcoming on TV.

Guide view

In our updated guide view, users can see recently completed, live and upcoming games all in a single landscape view. Your favorite teams are now always “pinned” to the top of each column.

Highlights are integrated into the guide itself. If a highlight is available for a past game. you’ll see a link or thumbnail on the guide itself.

You can sort the guide view by our excitement ratings or game start time.

Game detail view

In our updated game detail view, you can now see the live game feed at first glance, along with tune in information, friend check-ins and Fantasy player status.

Check into the game (upper right) to alert your friends and followers about a great game, or scroll across the tabs to view stats, recaps and other game information.

In landscape view, you can even track trending live or upcoming games.

New Navigation

We’ve also made navigating the app easier and quicker (for our Android smartphone users as well). By clicking on the Thuuz icon when on the top level of the app, or by swiping to the right from the left edge of the screen at any time, access a drawer that has links to all the major sections of the app.

Fantasy Integration

For those of you that love Fantasy Football and Baseball, the tablet interface will show your current roster of players, with pertinent information like when they’re in the red zone, and of course where you can tune in to watch them.  Our feed will provide you a series of updates for all your Fantasy players as well.

Look for an iPad version a little later 😉
