Spinisland's new iBeatThat app combines live sporting with virtual competition. For the first time ever, people who enjoy participating in "real world" activities - skateboarding, surfing, Moto X, running, biking, snowboarding, weight lifting, etc. - will have a way to show the world their feats and have some good natured competition with anyone, anywhere, anytime.
The ideas creator Todd Smith says he conceived the idea when watching an online gaming commercial. "I never got into the online gaming phenomenon, but over the years have enjoyed participating in sprint triathlons and other amateur sporting events and thought it would be great if amateur enthusiasts had a way to demonstrate their accomplishments, show their stuff virtually, and have some fun the way online gamers could." So Todd partnered with Spinisland's David Herschfield and Barkan Saeed to bring the idea to reality.
Now anyone who participates in a physical activity, be it running, biking, surfing, skateboarding, weightlifting, snow boarding, street biking, Moto X, BMX now has a way to show their stuff and put it up for a vote to see who is the best. Todd says he "hopes the app will continue to open new ways to think about using technologies to bring people together and diminish the restrictions of space and time...and have some fun as well!"
The app enables users to select favorite categories to compete in, upload their accomplishments using either GPS and / or Video documentation. Other users can review and vote on who's is the best. Those getting top votes receive first, second and third place titles assigned by region, age and gender. Users can also post their accomplishments to Facebook, Twitter and other sites and challenge their friends to virtual competitions. Recordings are also available to view on the iBeatThat YouTube page.
Helps us get started, show the world the champion in you, and earn $25. That's a Triple Win! The first five users getting 500 plus votes on their video will win a $25 Amazon gift card.
