The SuperFan apps are a suite of mobile apps that include sport news, videos, stats, team information and polls for passionate AFL (Australian Football League) and NRL (National Rugby League) fans.
The SuperFan apps were News Corp Australia’s first products to display nationally syndicated news and video content in a consolidated app for its large audience of sport consumers. The apps included integration with APIs, editorial publishing software, subscription services and the popular Australian SuperCoach fantasy sport apps.
Working in an agile team using SCRUM to create these new products, we first conducted interviews, research and tested the ideas with prototyping and an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) launch. The project evolved through continuous iterations and user testing with a closed group of beta users.
