Daves Football News & Scores Widget

is now available...

it's version 1 (lets call it a beta)

it's at www.davecozens.com/football/football.wgz

known issues: -
- can take a while to initialise
- homescreen views goes blank sometimes for about 5 seconds

The homescreen cycles every 7 seconds or so. It checks for updated feeds every 5 minutes or so (hopefully)

feedback please

Very nice still needs some work though.

- Slight transparency so it doesn't look so out of place against the background
- Fully utilise the space available, increase font size a little?
- Option to choose what is displayed, Eg News, News and Scores or just scores.

I know its very early beta an I'm glad your making/made this.
How accurate is the feed your using?

right, now searchable. any search you enter will be remembered when you reopen the widget.

if you want to search for liverpool, just enter "liverpool"

if you want to search for liverpool and benitez enter "liverpool benitez"

if you want to search for (liverpool and benitez) or chelse, enter "liverpool benitez, chelsea"

So basically, a space is an AND and a comma is an OR

Feedback still appreciated...

I just added some basic options for theme colour to match the default n-series white, black and blue themes.

Now at version 1.5

groovy. there's another update recently, solving an issue with the colours being a bit dodgy in the homescreen view when using the black theme...

any problems, let me know...

should be some live scores tonight from about 7:30: -
Sheffield United vs Sheffield Wednesday (Championship)
Schalke 04 vs. VfL Wolfsburg (Bundesliga)
Willem II Tilburg vs. FC Groningen (Dutch Eredivision)

Hey Dave,

Looks like the link through to teletext is updating goals every 10-15 mins for me.

when i do a search on your site for either west bromwich albion or wba i get kicked out and the app closes !!

i don't much care though, we're 3-0 up at the moment
