Kickstart This March Madness Bracket App That Doesn’t Suck

For the geeks among us, college basketball is a dream. Every March we can pretend to care about the spectacle of athleticism while secretly perfecting our own home-cooked statistical formulae to beat out those one in 35 billion odds of the perfect bracket. But this year, you can avoid the weird, vestigial corners of the web that your office March Madness pool usually forces you to in favor of a slick new app that just hit Kickstarter.

Simple Bracket, crafted by crowdfunding vets Studio Neat, looks like the perfect alternative to the horrible bracket-making tools that we end up returning to year after year. Rethought with an eye for design and a better scoring system, Simple Bracket ties into Twitter too, so you won’t have to remember obscure logins for yet more obscure websites you’ll never revisit. (Admittedly, the official March Madness app is awesome for watching games now, but the bracket tool is still pretty weak.)

Simple Bracket is for iOS only, but if it takes off, maybe by this time next year we’ll have an Android version and a Web interface too. Watch the Wes Anderson-esque Kickstarter video below and toss a dollar their way if you don’t want to end up on Yahoo! Sports again this March.
