GoalAlert brings sports results onto the lock screen of your WebOS device almost in real time. It is based on a german sports website where it can be used for all sport events where a live ticker is offered and where goals are scored. For example german Bundesliga, 2. Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Euro Championships, FIFA World Championships - but hockey games are possible, too.Important
Before installing Version 1.2.0 you should delete older versions of this app - otherwise the update intevall will have a invalid value. You can still set a valid value on the settings stage if you forgot to delete an older version.
Set the tid-value in the field "liveticker URL" of the settings stage
You can get this value by tapping on the button "Get Ticker ID (tid)".
Wait until a sports website is loaded where you can select a liveticker.
Tap on the liveticker and wait until the ticker is loaded.
Scroll to the top until you see the url of the site. In the url you can find the tid-value
(see screenshots below)
Tap on the save-button to start the notification service
The app is minimized into notification area and runs an alert if anything is happening at your ticker
(Kickoff, goals and final whistle - losing internet connection will cause an alert, too)
If you want to know the match standings then tap on the notification area
Tap on the left icon to skip through all current running matches
Running matches have a player icon and orange colored scores
Finished matches have a whistle icon and white colored scores
Future matches have a clock icon and no score
Tap on the globe icon on the right to open the liveticker (which is only available in german language)
Tap on the tools icon on the right to open the settings stage
All notifications are visible at the lock screen too, so you don't have to unlock your device, to see what is happening.
It is possible to tap on the left icon at the lock screen, to skip through all current notifications
- Tapping the left icon when there is a lock screen, doesn't have effect every time. Sorry - I couldn't find out why this happens. If it refuses to work, please unlock your screen and tap on the icon in the notification area.
