KNOW YOUR SOMERSAULTS FROM YOUR SALTOS? – NEWLY LAUNCHED “CURLY’S POCKET GUIDE TO SPORTS” APP MAKES THE PERFECT COMPANION FOR THIS SUMMER’S EVENTS
London, 21 May 2012 – The “Curly’s Pocket Guide to Sports” app, officially launched today, is the perfect on-the-go companion to the upcoming, jam-packed summer of sport. Featuring 72 different sports, the app demystifies the rules and offers a wealth of interesting and entertaining background information.
Created by London-based design studio WilsonFletcher, the iPhone and iPad app sports a beautiful design and is incredibly easy and lots of fun to use. The rules of the different disciplines are explained on sets of cards, which can be swiped through. A tap on each card will turn it over to reveal the complete rules of the sport with tongue-in-cheek illustrations and fascinating facts. All information can, of course, be shared via Facebook, Twitter and email.
Katie “Curly” Buchanan, the brains behind the app, says: “I really wanted to create an app to get everyone excited about sports, from teenagers to die-hard enthusiasts, people who may know a lot about their favourite sport but less about more obscure disciplines like rhythmic gymnastics or taekwondo. The app is completely jargon-free and unlocks the most wonderful and weird stories behind each event.”

Katie “Curly” Buchanan adds: “People with little or no knowledge of the basic rules may at times be missing out on the viewing pleasure of a sports event. By providing a better understanding of the rules behind the sport, the app will, I hope, greatly enhance the viewing experience for many people, whether they are watching events live in the stadium or on television. The app acts like a knowledgeable friend sitting by your side, explaining the rules in a comprehensive, fun way.”
