RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app launched ahead of opening games

The newly revised RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app has launched ahead of this weekend’s opening 6 Nations fixtures that will see England vs. Scotland.

Now in its second year, the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app allows smartphone and tablet wielding rugby fans to engage with the game, playing along to the action through a selection of live, prediction based and trivia questions.

Having recorded more than 100,000 downloads last year, the newly revised RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app has introduced a raft of new features, with live views from rugby experts and an integrated Twitter function, allowing users to both Tweet and view their personal Twitter feeds from within the app making the cut.

What’s more, this year, as added incentive to top the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app leader boards, the match ball for every 6 Nations 2013 game played will be handed to a user of the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app.

“Rugby fans that play the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app will have the exclusive opportunity to take home the match ball from every game,” an official spokesperson for the iOS and Android application said. “A first in rugby, fans simply log on to the app before every RBS 6 Nations game to take part in a series of live predictive and trivia questions; once the whistle blows and the match ends, one fan will win the muddy ball used during the action.”

Available as a free download, the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app is available for both iOS and Android devices such as the iPad mini, iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3. Compatible with both smartphone and tablet devices, users can sign up to use the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app through Facebook Connect.

Responding to live, in-game action, the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app challenges users to not only answer a selection of relevant, rugby themed trivia questions, but predict what will happen during key moments of the game. Tempting fate, users will be tasked to predict the results of conversion attempts and penalty kicks, guessing via on-screen options where the kick will land, through the posts, left, right or short of the target.

Are you a tech savvy rugby fan, will you be complementing your 6 Nations viewing with the RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app in a bid to win a 6 Nations match ball? Let us know via the Trusted Reviews Twitter and Facebook feeds or through the comment boxes below.
