A filipino e-sports manager called Kalaro has been unveiled. Its main goal is to serve as a portal for gamers, content managers, content creators, video game tournaments managers ands strategists. It serves as a social media app, a game manager, and a video hub.
There are various factors why Kalaro was created, to solve old and outdated mentalities and more. According to GizGuide, these are the factors that lead to the development of the app:
- The stigma and cultural acceptance that gaming is not sports and being a professional gamer is not a real career.
- The lack of inclusivity and diversity due to low discoverability because of the difference in access to resources and space to play and be seen.
- The lack of official and organized spaces to practice or a one-stop-shop that would advocate and create an organized movement for the community.
The app would make managing tournaments easier, as well as gather gamers and content creators into a single organised app. In addition to these features, there is also a seamless account integration, or you can just create an account instead.
According to their website, the app was featured in Rappler, Gadgetmatch, Yugatech and others.
