FanFinder - Sports Bar Locator
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
FanFinder Mobile locates the US-based Sports Bars where Fans of your favorite teams are watching the games. This application is perfectly suited for fans of the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball who want to watch games with their fellow alumni. No longer will you have to suffer through watching games at a sports bar surrounded by your rival team's fans!
FanFinder Mobile uses GPS to locate your position and provides you with the closest sports bars to that location. You may then select your Favorite Teams and ((shake)) the application to find out which sports bars near you cater to fans of those teams. FanFinder Mobile has a database of thousands of sports bars and their team affiliations, and the list is growing every day.
When you find a bar you like, simply tap the green pin for the name of the bar and tap again for its address and phone number. Click a button to get directions to the bar. You may also Invite Your Friends to join you at the bar by having the application generate an email message to them with key information about where and when to meet you. Remember -- you can't "High-Five" yourself.
If a business trip or vacation will take you to another, less familiar location, you may use the Search function to scout sports bars in advance of your trip. No matter where you are, FanFinder Mobile helps you secure "home-bar advantage".
If there are sports bars that you would like added to our ever-growing database, please email us the Bar Contact Information (Name, Address, Phone Number, Website and specific teams' fans that go there) to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Great idea but not a great app
I love the premise of this app but, unfortunately, it needs ALOT of work. It's a free app and so I definitely got what I paid for...but being free shouldn't mean it's acceptable to be inaccurate. Several of the bars for my location were either closed or listed by names that had been changed years ago. Also, I'm familiar with many of the sports bars/taverns in my neighborhood...one within reasonable walking distance (less than half a mile)...and NONE were listed. This app will send people who don't know any better 5-15 miles away.
It is a chore to constantly monitor the accuracy of an app's information, but if the developer is unable or unwilling to do so he/she shouldn't bother creating one...or at the very least solicit their users' input by making it possible for them post updates and add other known locations.
i can't believe no one has come up with this before!
VERSION 1.1 is working amazing! can't wait to see all that this app can provide.... this app is incredible and it blows my mind that no one has created this before! what a brilliant idea.... as someone who travels often with work, you can't always trust the cab driver or concierge to send you to the best bar for your team. i now look forward to traveling to tulsa next week because i know now i will have a good time watching the game with like minded fans. truly innovative and AMAZING!
This App Scores Big
This is the App I needed when I had to move six times because of job changes. My teams were never the local teams, and I hated being stuck in a bar with cranks and yahoos cheering against me. But I can still see myself using this App a lot just to get a better sense of my neighborhood, and frankly I don't know about other parts of my town as well as I'd like. If I can find some fans like me in the process of exploring, it'd be a real win-win situation. Really like the idea of this App.
