VIRGINIA BEACH, VA— iSportsman has been helping veterans, service members and their families get outdoors since 2007. Now, iSportsman aims to bring that same great service to its users both on and off base with the newest addition to the iSportsman suite of services: iSportsmanX. iSportsmanX Beta soft launched in December 2022, and after careful consideration of beta-tester feedback new changes are being implemented for the on-going development of iSportsmanX.
The future iSportsmanX will have both a web and mobile application, which will both offer their own unique experience and functionality to fully encompass the needs of existing and future iSportsman patrons. Currently available is the iSportsmanX Beta, a version of the iSportsmanX service that can be accessed by visiting iSportsman.net.
iSportsmanX Beta Features:
Interactive U.S. Map of iSportsmanGX locations upon load
Opportunities that can be filtered by category, distance, name, and state.
Detail pages for each iSportsmanGX location.
In April of 2023, iSportsman.net will no longer host the iSportsmanX Beta service. Instead, it will host iSportsmanGX Web, which will include the following features found below. Also in April, the iSportsmanX Beta service will be migrated to iSportsmanX.com, which is still in development.
iSportsmanGX Web Features:
Removal of the non-functional iSportsmanX search bar.
Topography information added to each existing details page.
In-depth description information added to each existing details page.
Links to state regulations for each existing details page.
Listing of activities available at each location in both the opportunities list and location details page.
Alphabetized filter-by-state options in the opportunities list.
Improved filtering options in the opportunities list.
Modernized UI design updates focused around an iSportsmanGX experience.
In July of 2023, iSportsmanX Mobile will be available for open beta use. iSportsmanX Mobile will be an improved-upon rendition of the original iSportsmanX concept. Planned to be available on both Android and iOS, iSportsmanX Mobile will provide searchable outdoor recreational activity information regardless of if the opportunity is managed by iSportsman or not.
