Q&F: Outlast Football

Call me a commie but I don’t give a crap about baseball… (American) football is the only sport that matters! And now that football season is finally here I’m on the lookout for apps that will make the games even more fun to watch.

Outlast Football is your basic survival pool where each week you pick ONE team that you’re absolutely sure will win, and if you’re right then you live to see another Sunday (or Monday or occasionally Thursday). If you choose the wrong side of an upset, though, you’re done for the season. The only catch is that you can only pick a team once during the whole season, so after Chicago crushes Green Bay at Lambeau in Week 1 you’ll have to move on to other possible winners in subsequent weeks.

You can make your survival pool public or private and you can also join other public pools if making one pick a week isn’t enough for you. There’s also the option to add a point spread if you’re fully convinced that your team will win by (x) points, and you’ll either get rewarded or penalized in “LastCreds” depending on the outcome.

I don’t fully understand the point of LastCreds, aka Outlast points, but I’m guessing it’s just a way of ranking players and their knowledge (or luck) in predicting winners. As for how this app performs in the heat of battle I don’t really know yet since the NFL season hasn’t started, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough!

Outlast Football is free, so if  you’re a football fan you need to download it and join my public pool! Just go to “Buddies”, click Search in the top left corner, look for “iphone” and you’ll find iPhoneAppReviews.net. Be sure to join the league called “(for real this time)”.

    It is a very well made app and should be fun to participate in global survivor pools when the season starts. I liked the idea of using prediction spreads it will add another dimension to the whole pool ( bragging rights within the pool ). I am looking forward to playing this during the season.

    Thanks for pointing out another great app.

    This is defintely a cool app. Took me a while to figure out all the stuff but the spreads feature is really addicting! I have not been doing very well though :(

    Very cool app. It’s easy to use, even if you’re not a football crazy person AKA fan. It has a simple design, yet a bunch of features…scores, spreads and the entire football season schedule! I like the way they have everyone in the Global Pool! Makes it more fun to see how everyone is doing – including the point spreads. And it’s FREE!

    Outlast Football is great! My friends have joined some of the pools and are getting ready to start a pool. We are gonna start in Week 2 so we can get some more guys to join. But for now, we are competing for Last Credits; They are the user points you can accumulate when you correctly predict the outcome of games (or at least better than the current line). The Outlast guys just launched a full featured website where you can compete with your friends who don’t have iPhones. Check it out at: http://www.outlastfootball.com

    This app is great, because it’s easy to use and it’s free. I have been looking for a football app that is challenging and and still fun at the same time…These guys really nailed it.
