NEW APP: Football Push Scores

Stephen, out little pet developer, has updated his Liverpool Push Scores football app – turning it into Football Push Scores and adding in the support for all UK Premier League teams that YOU DEMANDED.

So you can now keep up with when goals happen. Like a man. Here’s how it works:

Football Push Scores pushes goal alerts, half and full time scores for the team of your choice to your phone via Android’s Cloud 2 Device Messaging. It doesn’t work like some apps where it runs in the background checking the server every 10 mins. The alert is pushed to your phone using C2DM.

This means you get alerts instantly, don’t need a background service running and don’t need your internet usage taken up by the app checking for updates every 5 minutes.

The alert shows itself in a notification at the top of the screen e.g. “GOAL Liverpool 2 – 0 Man United (Torres)” and you can click on the notification to run the app and show the full text as well as the last 20 alerts received. Some alerts can also include a link to a web site with extra information.

It’s only for Android 2.2 devices at the moment. Stephen says support for the next division down, whatever that’s called at the moment, and the Scottish League will arrive in a forthcoming update.

And look! He put Eurodroid on the screen while taking the screenshots to go on the app’s official Android Market description! We are famous. Stephen is the best developer in the world.

    As long as it all works on tonights Liverpool and City games I will release a version which allows you to pick “All Premier League Teams” this evening.

    Once I can see what the vidiprinter calls each SPL, Championship, League One, Two etc. club I will release a version which includes these teams.

    e.g. it may call it Crystal Palace, C.Palace, Crystal Pal and I need to know the exact name it uses for clubs like this.

    • Brilliant Stephen – thanks.

      Not wanting to sound pushy, but you should be able to get that info at the weekend, no?

      I think once I can get my teams goals etc pushed, this may well be the best app on my phone!

      • Actually – is it possible to add a sound to the notifications?
        Either the default notification sound, or a customisable one?

        Would be happy to test versions for you…

    Yes I will get the information on how each club is “named” by the vidiprinter at the weekend.

    Sounds – Good idea, I will look at this for a future version. Maybe the default notification sound initially but if I can get hold of sound crowd cheering sounds for a goal and some other related sounds for a red card (sound of a leg crunching tackle or something haha) I will try and get these into the app.

    New version released on the market now with option to get alerts for all Premier League teams.

    This app is excellent. (but will be better once the Mighty Ipswich are added!)

  10. Not sure what happened today – I’ve been registered for alerts for Hearts and been successfully receiving them since they were available.
    For some reason today though, I received alerts for Hibs!
    Any chance you can look into it?

    Cheers

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
