It's About Having Fun and Good Natured Competition with Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere!
The idea for iBeatThat! came about while thinking of all the ways the mobile smart phone was changing the way people accessed information and communicated together.
Since the inception of online competitive gaming the concept was limited to only those who enjoyed playing video based games. But what about people who like to do their hobbies in the real world? There was no place for them to use the virtual gaming concept...until now!
The ideas founder conceived the idea when watching an online gaming commercial. “I never got into the online / virtual gaming phenomenon, but over the years have enjoyed participating in sprint triathlons and other amateur and recreational sporting events and thought it would be great if amateur enthusiasts had a way to show their accomplishments virtually.” Now with iBeatThat anyone, anywhere, anytime can have a way to show their stuff and have some good-natured fun and competition in the way online gamers could.
As the idea formed it occurred around the same time as the founder's daughter was going through a growth phase and she started wanting to compete at everything. She just had to be first in line, first up the stairs, first at this, at that, at everything. Every time she "won" she would turn and with a great huge grin on her face say "I Beat Ya!" And that became the foundation for the name, iBeatThat!
That is how iBeatThat! came to be. We hope those of you who enjoy a good bout of physical challenge, whatever your preferred method, will join us in building our virtual competitive games....think you got what it takes? Let me hear you say iBeatThat!
