Sponto Gearing up to Awesomize Colleges starting with the ones around Awesome DC

Sponto is a mobile party detection app for college students built by one of the coolest DC entrepreneur, Jamey Harvey who I know since Web 1.0 era. Up until last week Sponto was only available to students at the University of Maryland where it’s been burning up the campus.

I wish they were around when I was going to college, because essentially what it does is tell you where all the free food, booze and hot babes (hot dudes like me in your case ladies ;-)) are near you!

Their app has enabled The GWU (my Alma Mater) as well as American University, Georgetown, Howard, Catholic, UDC, Catholic, Trinity, Gallaudet and the Corcoran School of Art.  If you’re a student at one of these schools you can register for Sponto now and start sharing parties and events.

Washington DC Fan Misery: Get all the Washington Sport News in the Palm of your Hand

First thing first, you need to have an iPhone  🙂  Then, you need to get  Washington DC Fan Misery app on your iPhone 😉

The app has the latest on all the local teams.  Real-time news, stats, scores & more for the Redskins, Wizards, Nationals and Capitols.

Fan Misery stands apart from other sport apps because of its “Fan Misery Index” (FMI). What is the Fan Misery Index? Well, the FMI is a method created based on the relative strengths of a unique set of statistics (performance on the field) and opinions (effect of the performance on the field & factors outside the game). It’s a value of 0 and 10, where 0 indicates extreme fan bliss (sunny) and 10 is utter misery (getting stormy for Cavaliers fans). The FMI is calculated daily throughout the season & off-season.

32% of iPad Owners Rarely care about Apps

According to a recent  study from Nielsen, 32% of iPad owners have never downloaded an app on the device — Is that because the device has everything type of iPad users need already installed, or they don’t know they can?

The study surveyed more than 5,000 owners of connected devices, 452 of whom own an iPad.

However, the overwhelming majority of those who have downloaded apps have also been willing to pay for at least one of them. Of the 63% of iPad owners who have paid for an app, 62% of them have paid for a game and 54% have paid for an e-book, followed by music (50%), shopping (45%) and news (45%) apps. A full 41% have paid for a magazine, which is quite impressive, given the relatively few number of titles that are available for the iPad, such as Wired and Esquire. Read more of this post
