Sacramento Kings app lets you hail an Uber, talk to chatbot

Sep 19, 2016

The NBA’s Sacramento Kings are getting a new mobile app to go with their new basketball arena, the Golden 1 Center. Behind the scenes, the app’s backend runs 1,500 automations per game across 10 unique application program interfaces, ranging from the NBA to Urban Airship to PubNub. This synchronizes a real-time experience with up-to-the-moment scores, play-by-play info, shot-chart details, team and player stats, and more. For instance, an integration with Ticketmaster lets fans view and manage their tickets inside the app. Fans can also browse the Kings and Golden 1 Center schedules to buy tickets for games, concerts, or shows.
