Huddlers, a new app from Canadian developers that lets you quickly schedule a social game of every sport under the sun, launches today. The free app will allow you to set up a game of your own, or join in on one of your friends’. To promote the app, the Huddlers team will be hosting a number of games throughout the city in the upcoming weeks; at least two games a day in a variety of different sports.
On your profile you can list information including what sports you’re interested in, what positions you like to play, and even how you play (the janitor icon means you do the dirty work to help your team win). We got the rundown on the app from creator Adam Epstein:
Tell us a little bit about the app.
It is the first mobile and social application specifically for the sports the everyday athlete plays. Basically we’re solving the problem of all those reply-all ‘who’s in?‘ emails and mass texts.
Will the app be free?
Yes the app will be totally free!
Can games be both privately and publicly listed?
Any game that someone is “in on” or “is playing in” – will appear in their own feed and the feed of their friends. So while all games are public, if you’re not friends with someone playing in that game, you won’t know it exists.
You can check out the trailer below, and dowload the app for free here.
