ESPN Launches Winter X Games iOS App With GroupMe Integration [News]

xgames   ESPN Launches Winter X Games iOS App With GroupMe Integration [News]ESPN has launched their Winter X-Games application for iOS and will be launching it soon for Android. It’s an awesome app that is chock full of extreme sports goodness. What makes it really interesting for hardcore tech junkies is that ESPN chose to integrate group SMS messaging service GroupMe into the app. This is an incredibly smart move for both parties. For ESPN, it gets people talking about the X Games through a new channel, and for GroupMe it exposes their service to an audience that fits perfectly into their target demographic.

Simply click the “Social” button from the main screen of the app and then click “Group Text” on the top right of the screen to use the GroupMe function. You will need to enter your phone number and verify with GroupMe before you can use this new feature. It’s great to see the X Games embracing such a new service and making it an integral part of their official application.
