Game Changer: Order concessions at your favorite sporting event directly from your smart phone and more.

New York, NY Feb 7, 2012 – Taap.it Live Local plans on revolutionizing the way fans experience sporting events. One of the most arduous, but accepted parts of going to a sports game is waiting on long lines to get something to eat and drink. Fans everywhere have accepted the fact if they want to get something to eat, they will have to miss some of the game. Taap.it has now solved that problem. Through Taap.it’s highly successful mobile application, fans will now be able to order food and beverages straight from their smart phones and have it delivered to their seats.
“This new feature to our mobile app is something we have been working on for months now, and we are very excited about,” said Andrew Calagna, Director of Event Marketing for Taap.it.  “We are going to enhance the overall experience of sport fans everywhere.” The application will have detailed pictures and descriptions of selected food items in the arena, so the fans will know exactly what they are getting as they order it.
Ordering concessions, isn’t the only feature Taap.it is bringing to the table. Their mobile application will let fans participate in contests, vote for player of the game, and rate player performances and much more.  “We know we aren’t the first ones the come up with the idea of using a smart phone to order food, but we are going to be the first to have a truely interactive experience with the fans.” said Andrew. “While we cannot disclose the franchises we are teaming up with at this time, we can say that we are very excited about these future partnerships. This is going to be a game changer.”

Ma and Mellie’s Seafood Restaurant. TheNextWeb.com reported that in its first two months Taap.it “crossed an impressive $2.4 million”.
