With JogoCast, created by Bellevue-based startup Tidyware, you can update a scoreboard, enter goals, corner kicks and other play-by-play highlights, and upload photos. If several people are using JogoCast at the same game, the app can crowdsource everyone’s updates.
The app is free and can be accessed on an iPhone, or Mac or PC desktop. The folks you want to keep in the loop don’t need a JogoCast account to get all those updates. You can broadcast the updates via Facebook, Twitter, email and text.
In an email to GeekWire, Tidyware founder Philip Carmichael said he got the whole idea on the sidelines of his kids’ soccer matches, where he’s seen many fans texting and talking about games with friends and family who couldn’t be there.
He better hope the folks fielding all those texts and phone calls weren’t no shows for lack of interest.
