Default FootballMonitor 0.39

FootballMonitor 0.39

The Bad news:
I have discontinued this piece of software, after moving away from Windows Mobile.
The Good news:
  • The sourcecode is attached below. It is C#.NET.
  • I believe the fix for the current version is very simple


I have created a Football (Soccer) Monitoring Service which alerts you when a team is playing and on score updates.

Configurable for teams, and frequency of update. Works with lots of major leagues round the world.

Still early days, but I hope other people will find this useful.

Obviously it requires an internet connection to get it's data, so my advice is not to use if you don't want to get charged!

Been trying out this app for a few days and it is working very nicely. Very prompt updates for live games.

My only criticisms would be :

Interface looks dated (but appreciate that the app is at an early stage of development). Maybe use the Manila SDK to improve visuals?
Performance of phones suffers slightly when serivce is running. Not unbareable but scrolling in HTC Sense is slightly jerky.
Would be good to be able to choose specific Leagues/Competitions rather than just teams.
Populating the list of teams you wish to follow can take a bit of time scrolling through the list of available teams.
An error message appears when clicking on the '>' button on the results page (will post up the full message when I get home this evening)


PS. I'm running the app on an HTC HD2.

Thanks for your information, have you tried version 0.2, the error message should be fixed?

I will look at the leagues/competitions idea.

I haven't seen the Manila SDK, I will look into it. My priority was getting it working first, then looking nice later. I was thinking of looking at this very soon.

Yeah mate, just upgraded to v0.2 and the error message thing is solved. Cheers.

Thats cool about the interface - I figured you were going for functionality over form at the moment since it is early in development.

I've got a few ideas for the interface that would basically utilise drop-down menus for selecting Competitions/Teams. I'll quickly draft something up in Photoshop at the weekend if your interested?

I have had this a few days! Great app.

But I select lower league teams, Swindon and I didnt get any updates of the score, although I was glad as they lost.

I have Liverpool and Everton and they both worked.

So not sure why the lower leagues arent working.

Sorry about that Keith, tell you what, next time they play can you change the log-level to 2 and, if you have the same problem, can you send me the log file from inside the directory?

I presume you're talking about Tuesdays match?
