Finally, here’s an app that lets you show off how big of a fan you are. Fancred was developed with the belief that being a sports fan is more than just liking or cheering for a team. The app helps fans express themselves and show their team spirit in the form of beautiful profiles. Your Fancred profile captures and archives your life as a sports fan as you post your favorite teams, your favorite sports photos and videos, and your thoughts and experiences related to the great sport of baseball. On game day, Fancred turns into a virtual stadium where it feels like you are watching and experiencing the game with thousands of other fans. Fancred is available free on the App Store.
