I collected baseball and football cards as a kid, and loved to read the statistics on the back. I thought it would be cool to make such cards interactive and provide a lot more than stats, like twitter feeds, videos, and more!
I also wanted to support my local minor league soccer and basketball teams, so I used their logos.
How it works
The user scans either a team's logo or a player's photo or sports card and instantly they see the info on that team or player. That info can be twitter feed, video, tickets and more!
Challenges I ran into
Finding the logos and photos that I wanted to use. I used a small subset for testing, for purposes of the app.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I think that this could be a fun, useful, and free app that might help kids get into trading cards again.
What I learned
There are a lot of types of information that fans would like access to.
What's next for FanScan
The next step will be to add more logos and player photos.
