Major modifications because of a website relaunch of the used liveticker

Enter the complete URL of the ticker you selected into the field "liveticker URL" of the settings stage
You can get this URL by tapping on the button "Get Ticker ID (Sportschau)" or "Get Ticker URL (Kicker)".
How do you get this URL?
If you tapped on "Get Ticker ID (Sportschau)", wait until the overview page is loaded. Select one of the offered matches and wait until the ticker page is loaded. Scroll down until you see the URL-bar at the top. Copy the complete URL and paste it into the field "liveticker URL" of the settings stage.
If you tapped on "Get Ticker URL (Kicker)", wait until the overview page is loaded.
If you have a touchpad, tap and hold the tiny "i"-symbol at the match you're interested in. Wait until a menu opens and select "Copy URL" and paste it into the field "liveticker URL" of the settings stage.
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, half-time 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

Tap on the globe icon on the right to open the liveticker (which is only available in german language)

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.
