Thanks Rizzo!

A simple link to the forum webpage would work great! I access the forum via the web on my iPhone at present and it is not difficult to navigate, especially if you set you status to automatically sign in, but having a link to this from within the Tigers App would be great!

One other point....

On Live Scores it currently shows scoring in order from first to last. On the GP app produced by the same designer they show the Live Scores in reverse order (i.e. most recent at the top). The latter version works better as when you keep flicking onto the app to see if the score has changed you can see straightaway if there is a change what happened. On the Tigers version each time you go onto the Live Score you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see who scored. Hope this makes sense!

We were told that a lot of the changes requested would be sorted in time for the new season. Any news on how this is progressing?

I hope the answer below is of assistance.

"We have requested the order of the scores to be changed so that the recent try/penalty/etc shows at the top of the page (This should be changed when we release the updated app, end of Sept at present)

We’ve requested a few other tweaks that we’ve noticed on the app e.g Exeter name missing from the fixtures page (This should be changed when we release the updated app, end of Sept at present)"

Rizzo wrote:Response on queries and points raised above:

I have some feedback on the iPhone App for the forum.

- Show live scores for all premiership games
We are looking into providing live scores for the current round of matches in a future release. Hopefully in time for next season.

- Push notification for changes in score on matches selected by the user
We are looking to provide this for the Tigers matches, again hopefully in time for next season

- Show full tables for HC and LV (and also international so we can follow our Tigers players on the international stage)
Again we’d like to provide this in time for next season

All further feedback gratefully received!!!
Rizzo - thanks for all your updates to date and sorry to be a pain but do you know if the above amendments that you updated us on have come to pass?

Purebob - I am informed that there are no plans to make a Blackberry application at present, due to the charges/fees that Blackberry make.

I am informed an "android application" will be available soon.

(Don't ask me what the last bit means, I am just a messenger!)

Another update received today

"the scores on the iPhone app will show with the latest score/try at the top instead of the bottom which means users don’t have to scroll down the app to view the latest info."

Suz - the Android app is in preparation, hopefully won't be too much longer. The Club's IT people are actively working for this and chasing it.
