Toronto's Score Media Inc. Acquires Rival Smartphone App SportsTap
Toronto-based Score Media Inc. has acquired rival mobile outfit SportsTap, one of the most popular smartphone sports applications, from Mobile1Sports LLC. The combined Score Media-SportsTap entity will rank among the largest sports mobile audiences in the U.S. with a combined unique user base of more than 3 million. Score Media will run its own ScoreMobile and SportsTap as separate products and separate brands. Financial terms were not disclosed. Mobile1Sports founders Wayne Elliot and Logan Rockmore will remain on and work for Score Media.
