Beyond The Box is an iPad app that allows sports fans to curate realtime coverage, players updates and analysis from their favorite sports teams in one centralized timeline. You can think of it as TweetDeck on steroids — for sports.
The founders decided to start with the iPad to offer sports fans curated news, analysis, rumors, video, photos and player commentary in the same timeline-style feed that has become so familiar thanks to social media. The timeline curates content from more than 1,000 media sources and 2,000 players, ranking and analyzing sources based on a number of signals, including popularity, relevancy, and so on. In turn, it allows fans to personalize their feed to focus updates from their favorite teams and players.
