Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    Personally, I think the opinion is valid and informed.

      "After covering the Santa Cruz squad for several months with some success, Adam Johnson woke up one day to find out the site he wrote for no longer existed and was out of a job.
      With nowhere to report to, Johnson decided it was time to open up shop for himself. In less than 24 hours , Sea Dubs Central was born with the help of local Santa Cruz Warriors SuperFan, Idris Nolan (help meaning he built the entire site). Sea Dubs Central is a site dedicated to providing the best possible coverage of the Santa Cruz Warriors as well as the NBA D-League."

      McHappy beat me to it, but I will leave my post because of the longer and slightly more informative quote from their "About" page.

        Canada would be great but Buffalo or Albany make a lot of sense as well for avoiding VISA and customs garbage.
        Yeah, much easier to get into Canada on short notice than into the US.

          Buffalo could make sense re proximity / US location. Too bad the players would have to live in a shit hole.

            they actually avg about 5500 fans per game but have had 7000 5x including a record setting 8700 once. I hope the D-league team ends up in London with that kind of support.
            Wow, very impressive. I had no idea this team existed.

            And I had no idea that JLC is now Budweiser Gardens :|

              Not sure if anyone else has posted this or thought of it but.....

              What are odds the new practice facility is home of the new DLeague team?


              I've read that LALakers are building a facility to house D Leageu team and I think Washington was planning on doing the same.

                    Ah. My bad. It was just some speculation form the front page of the site:
                    "Possible locations could be Mississauga’s Hershey Center, Brampton’s Powerade Center, or any one of the other arenas across the GTA."

                        That would make sense. The practice facility is at Exhibition Place and either part of but definitely close to BMO field (home of TFC). Seems to be a blend there of a complex and central/close to transportation facilities/parking space.

                          I would assume the practice facility doesn't have seats though. Assuming they aim for a bigger than a high school crowd will bleachers you roll out from the wall.

                            How many people do you guys think will go to their games ? I have a feeling it will shock the rest of the D-league and once for all, it will prove to the rest of the league that Toronto is not just a Hockey town.

                              I would want to agree with this but I'm not 100% sold. There are a LOT of teams in Toronto right now (Raptors, Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, Argos, Marlies, Toronto FC, Toronto Rock...) to compete for an audience. Realistically speaking, I think if they could manage 800-1000, they'd be fine.

                              For comparison's sake, does anyone know how many fans usually attend games for the Marlies compared to fans who attend Leaf games?
