We are happy to announce that FanDraft Football 2015 is now available. This year's version is loaded with new features, stability enhancements, a re-introduction of the original WEB add-on, and a brand new look & feel.
The Focus in 2015
If there is one area we really wanted to focus on this year, it was the aesthetic feel of FanDraft. FanDraft's sole purpose is to bring alive the live draft experience, by making a multimedia engagment that makes your draft really feel like an NFL draft.
To improve upon this, you'll notice that we enhanced all of the graphics this year, adding more motion graphics, modern imagery, and a sleek interface. FanDraft Football now comes pre-loaded with NFL player images (although you can still edit/import your own), which are utilized within the draft experience, and you can even import MP4 videos to play after a player is selected. All of this aid in creating presentation that feels like you are watching a draft on ESPN.
Re-Introductions of FanDraft WEB add-on
If you've been paying attention to our blog, you may have already noticed our post detailing what's happening to FanDraft WEB this year. Last season we introduced a stand-alone application which allowed owners unable to attend the draft to purchase and install software which would allow them to view and draft remotely. It was a major change that had mixed reception from our users. The overall feedback was that charging users individually, and expecting them to install and link their accounts added undesired complexity. This opposed to the original FanDraft WEB add-on, which is a single purchase product that the commissioner could buy, setup, and allow all of the owners to easily access via the WEB (not needing owners to install separate software).
We are happy to announce that we are leaving behind last year's WEB, and re-introducing the original FanDraft WEB. For our long-time users familiar with this product, FanDraft WEB is a simple $5 add-on that allows all of your users to access the draft from a website. There is no registration, setup, or purchase required from your owners. You just setup FanDraft WEB from within FanDraft, then send along the link and league credentials to your users, and they can all access it. To learn more how it works, just click here.
What's New Under the Engine
Another major improvement from last year comes in some invisible ways, in the engine of the software. Last year some users Mac users experienced annoyances that related to the latest Mac OS changes, in particular related to the Gatekeeper changes make in Mac OSX. You'll be happy to hear all of those have been settled on our end, and FanDraft is back to working with all of the Mac operating systems without a hitch.
We also added a lot of internal programming to deal with users Firewalls, which would cause annoyances when it came to registration or web connectivity features within FanDraft. The changes relieve most of those nuisances, and even add the ability for users to connect from a proxy server.
New Features: Bells & Whistles
The majority of the new features and improvements we add each year come from YOU, our users. You all come up with fantastic ideas, which keep FanDraft on top of the game every year. Below is a listing of some of these great new added features:
