We’re about to enter the peak time for sports in the U.S. with the NFL season about to kickoff; pre-season currently in full swing. With that in mind, there has been a new football-specific iPhone app called TweetQB developed recently. The idea is as simple as can be: you load up the app and you see a list of all the current NFL games. If the games are currently in progress, you see an up-to-date score. If they have yet to start, you’ll see when they’re scheduled to. Selecting any of these games takes you to a screen filled with tweets about that specific game. From here, you can respond to any of these tweets, or start tweeting yourself. Okay, on the surface, it may seem like there is not much here. But here’s why this works: trash-talking. Any good football fan knows that trash-talking is an essential part of the game. There is always some know-it-all fan of the team you hate running his or her mouth on Twitter about such-and-such, so TweetQB gives you fast and easy access to try and shut him or her up. TweetQB is populating these realtime tweets by looking for specific team hashtags or tweets from accounts known to be associated with those specific teams. The app is $0.99 in the App Store. Sadly, the beer is not included.
