I don't see my bracket when joining a pool?
In order to join a pool, your bracket must exist on the PocketBracket Network. You can be sure it does by syncing you brackets with the PocketBracket Network.
Why is it asking me to sync my brackets?
PocketBracket is a native app. This allows you to create and manage your brackets without a network connection. The next time you connect, PocketBracket will ask you to sync your changes.

You should sync when prompted or by shaking your device while on the Brackets screen. This will ensure that your data on the PocketBracket Network is up-to-date and will be correctly scored and ranked.
Why aren't my bracket's being scored?
Bracket scores and ranks are updated after each game is final. You can also refresh your Bracket screen to ensure your brackets are up-to-date.
Why does PocketBracket have last year's tournament data?
PocketBracket comes preloaded with last year's tournament data so can practice using the app before the Madness begins.

PocketBracket will automatically perform an in-app update when tournament data becomes available on Selection Sunday.
How long can I update my bracket?
You can update your picks until tip-off of the first game of the first round (not the Play-In games).

You can continue to make brackets after this time. These brackets will be scored, but will not be ranked.
How many brackets can I create?
As many as you want.
What is the "PocketBracket Network"?
This is the PocketBracket Network!

Your brackets and pools are stored here so you can access them from anywhere. Us geeks call it "the cloud".
