Sports Aggregator JockSpin Releases Highly Anticipated IPhone/iPad App

An app for Android devices is in development, anticipated to publish in the coming weeks. Expected to be almost identical in appearance and functionality, it will open up JockSpin's functionality to the rapidly growing number of Android devices. Numerous other developments are underway to expand and enhance the company's offerings.

Asked how JockSpin came to be, Hawkins explains that as a Miami based "typical sports fan" he found himself hungry for more about the Miami Heat, which had then just signed Lebron James and Chris Bosh to join Dwayne Wade as the anointed Three Kings. As he was checking Boston, Cleveland, and Chicago area new sources for commentary the thought struck him, "there should be an app for that."

JockSpin, online at http://jockspin.com, bases itself in Miami, traditionally known more for bikinis and nightlife than bandwidth and startups. Of late, however, a startup scene has begun to flourish, with incubators including Innovate Miami and Launch Pad Tech, and angel funds including Miami Innovation Fund and New World Angels, leading the way. Hawkins, commenting on this, notes, "We've given thought to moving to San Francisco, Boulder, or some other recognized tech hub, but think we may be in just the right place to participate in if not lead development of a tech scene here in South Florida."

"We're proud of what we have done so far," states Hawkins, "but we're not close to done, and in fact are just getting started." JockSpin's stated goal is 100 million monthly page views in five years. That is a lofty goal, to be sure, but they are certainly off to a good start.
