AppDictions App Review:
Fan Misery is a very comprehensive sports app from Discover Motion, LLC designed for fans of professional baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. One of the prominent and more original features is the Fan Misery Index or FMI. The FMI is an amusing and comprehensive rating system which updates daily; similar to the stock market. Say your team is on a 3 game losing streak with a .225 batting average – watch the index change. Best of all, your opinion factors into the FMI! Real time news compiled from multiple sources, detailed stats, rumors, and game day weather conditions make this a must have app for die hard sports fans.
Love and Hate. Joy and Pain. Victory and Defeat. You know what it means to be a fan. It’s an obsession.
Fan Misery feeds your sports obsession with the latest Fan Misery Index ratings and comprehensive statistics, fan opinions, news, games schedules, and scores.

What is the Fan Misery Index?
We’ve created a method that calculates a Fan Misery Index (FMI) based on relative strengths of a unique set of statistics and opinions. The FMI is conceptually similar to the S&P 500 Index – it’s a value between 0 and 10 where 0 indicates bliss and 10 represents the ultimate misery that you as a fan could ever envision. The FMI is calculated daily throughout the season, and off-season. This app has you dialed in to all your favorite teams.
The New Fan Misery App
You asked – we responded. Fan Misery is now an all-in-one app, with all of your favorite teams available for in−app purchase. Included in the app is a free preview team that allows you to browse through all of the content. Want more? Buy individual teams, or save by buying ultimate sports packs for all teams in the NBA, NFL, MLB, or NHL categories. Want even more? Buy the all teams pack and get access to all 122 sports teams! We’re adding new sports and teams all the time.
Have you ever seen something happen on the field, court or rink that really excites or aggravates you? FMI statistics capture these “fan moments” – displayed in the App with detail and perspective relative to historical ranges from poor to excellent symbolized with a weather symbol (from sunny to cloudy) to help you visualize where your team stands. Drill right down into details for each statistic including an explanation of how the stat is used in the FMI calculation. Statistics are updated after each game during the season.
The opinions featured in Fan Misery offer perspective on elements of the team/organization/players that matter to you as a fan. What is your historical level of pain/despair? Has the team lost its mojo? What is the probability that your team will win it all? What is the level of buzz around your team? You are the fan – you vote on opinions within the App and determine their value within the FMI, updated daily throughout the year.
Stay current with the latest news on your team – directly from national and local newspapers, broadcast media and blog feeds. News is updated in real time so you can see the latest coverage and how it may affect your FMI.
