FanDuel Mobile Updates
In the past few months, FanDuel has been working on becoming the first daily fantasy sports site to offer a fully-functional mobile page for its players. Recently, FanDuel emailed players to let them know about all of the new options available on their mobile beta site and it’s pretty awesome. They have already optimized a number of features and are in the developing stages of a number of other additions to make their mobile site more user-friendly. Below is a breakdown of the features offered on FanDuel’s mobile site currently, as well as an update on features that are coming soon! Just go to Fanduel.com on your mobile device and click the button on the top that says “Go to the mobile home page.” Enjoy and remember to sign up for FanDuel through the RotoGrinders links and receive a 40% deposit bonus on your first deposit!
The first feature of note is the ability for players to login to their accounts through the mobile site. FanDuel has a mobile log-in option now that allows players to seamlessly enter their account page on their smartphones or tablets. Just enter your email address and FanDuel password and jump straight to the mobile homepage. Once you login, you can jump to any of the options below and you can see your current FanDuel balance as well.
Mobile Homepage with Summary of Live/Upcoming Contests
This is perhaps the most important feature that FanDuel currently offers to players on its mobile site. Players on their smartphones can view all of their live and upcoming contests. Live contests can be opened and feature live scoring via a manual refresh. You can view your own team’s score as well as the scores of all other players in the contest as well! Also, live contests now show the playing status of any player currently in your lineups. Upcoming contests can be viewed with the ability to edit your team. This is perfect for players having a late night at the office who need to swap out a few players before the games kick off!
Contest History Tab
Want an easy way to see how you have done in contests recently? Look no further than the “My Contests” tab which shows all activity on your account. You can see contests you have won or lost, dating as far back as you wish to see. Scrolling through all of these contests is fast and easy, and you can open up the official scoring for any of these games by clicking the green arrow to the right of the contests name.
The most recent addition to the FanDuel mobile site is the ability to check player news and statistics from your phone. Simply by clicking on a players’ name, one can see all notable statistics and news for that given player right from the draft lobby on your mobile device! Mobile users will be able to get useful information on each players without having to open up another page.
One of the most essential tools in daily fantasy is the ability to import your lineups so you can use one team for a number of different leagues. FanDuel’s mobile site offers the option to import your lineups from any of your upcoming and compatible leagues on your mobile device! If you have a lineup that you set up on your computer earlier but need to add that team to the other leagues you have joined, you can now do that with one simple click on the FanDuel mobile site.
There are a number of features that the FanDuel crew is working on for the mobile site. As mentioned before, this is just the beta version of the mobile site for FanDuel and they are releasing options in segments as they are developed. The following features are being worked on as we speak and should be released in the near future!
- Contest Lobby
- True Live Scoring(without manual refresh)
- My Account Page
- Deposit Money
- Support Tickets
All of these features can be accessed on the main site and are linked to the main site via the current mobile site. Also, FanDuel reminds you that you can jump to the main site at any time by clicking the “Main Site” button at the bottom of the mobile screen.
The idea of a functional mobile site for daily fantasy sports junkies is incredible. FanDuel has just scratched the surface of all that is possible for a mobile DFS site and they are working hard to make sure that their mobile site runs as smoothly as any smartphone app might. Be sure to check it out and keep your eyes peeled for a new RotoGrinders mobile section that will break down the various options that DFS sites offer for your mobile device coming soon!
