5 Apps to Take Out to The Ballgame

Fan Misery

Platform: iOS

Price: $1 for one team, $3 for all teams

Before heading out to the ballpark, sometimes it pays to take the temperature of the room to see if it's worth the trip. Headlines, talk radio and the win-loss column offer a hint, but the collective game day experience is what separates a crowd that's despondent but hopeful from one for which every run from the opposing team adds to the stadium's increasingly disgruntled din. For fans who want to know if they'll be diving for home runs or dodging tossed beers, Fan Misery uses a range of metrics to gauge the collective mood of each team's fan base and presents its assessment as a weather forecast. By combining hitting and pitching stats and the cost of beer at the concession stand (because expensive yellow fizz always dampens the mood) with results from in-app polls, Fan Misery determines if the fan base is weathering the storm or if gloomier days are ahead. While the apps creators have tailored versions especially for the New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., markets, fans of just about every team in pro sports can use it to see just how fans feel about the latest losing streak, steroid scandal, salary-dumping trade or scary rumor that the team may move if it doesn't get a new facility paid for by their taxes.
