App Launch: Go Derby Yourself!

The Kentucky Derby iPhone app, DerbyMe, has officially launched! This has been a labor of love from our Rocketeer team and the wonderful folks at The Kentucky Derby. Marking the 139th running of the Derby, the app has been created to help enhance your Derby experience with curated Twitter collections and the ability to filter the conversations to your preferences, giving you an inside look at all things Kentuck Derby.

Another cool feature allows you to put yourself at the Derby in sharable photos. You can change your look from sporting a seersucker suit, to wearing a traditional Derby hat, or sitting on the back of the winner. You can even call the horses to post with a touch of a finger. Be sure to download this fun app and share it with your friends and fellow fans.

DerbyMe is available on iTunes. Click here to download!
