Goooal 2 is a new release of the app Goooal. It was released as a new app because of it's completely different concept. You can run both on one device and decide which one is better for your needs.
Goooal 2 checks livescores.com periodically for soccer results and sends notifications to your device if something happened on matches you selected before. In this release 5 match selections are implemenfed:
Matches all around the globe of this day. On weekends this can be more than 200 matches. Because of the huge amount of data there may be single seconds of delay when selecting a match of the list until it is marked.
Matches that are running at the moment all around the globe. Much quicker calculations than with the Today list. But you can't select matches in advance. Only about 5 minutes before kickoff are possible. Sometimes matches dissappear from this list at the moment of the final whistle. You'll get a notification if this happens.
- Bundesliga, MLS and La Liga
Matches of one matchday in German Bundesliga, US Major League Soccer and Spain.Primera Divisòn. Matches can be marked long before kickoff and don't disappear after final whistle.
Match events and standings are visible on the lock screen. If Speech Dispatcher v0.7.14-1 is installed then all events on the selected matches can be told by speech (perfect e.g. while driving).
If you enter a favorite team there will be a "boo" notification if the opponent scores.
How to use (see screenshots):
