Somewhat lost in the jaw-dropping awesome announcements at Build 2015 was going live on a pretty incredible suite of Mobile apps for IMSA (The International Motor Sports Association).
What we built in such a short space of time is nothing short of awesome. From idea to production on the cutting edge: an app that runs cross platform, built by our team in a little over 3 months
The App Experience
The new app includes enhanced features such live broadcast television, IMSA radio, live timing and scoring of the race events, multiple in-car cameras feeds, live tweets and custom viewing options for fans to access straight from their device.
Through a collaborative effort InterKnowlogy partnered with IMSA and Microsoft to deliver a new, game-changing, multi-platform mobile experience for all of IMSA’s fans, both at the race and from wherever they watch the action.
