The interface appears as a string of short posts that are one to two sentences hyperlinked to a source for the full information or image. The site offers an “A.M. Quickish” post with new sports information each day.

A menu bar on the side of the screen offers trending topics, links to videos, a random tip generator, and links to longer articles. Users can also search the site, jump to tips about a particular sports league, or use links to connect to the app via Facebook or Twitter.
