    My widget never started with college basketball today. 10 minutes into the game and it still doesn't register a score or update (shows game time at 2pm). Ohio State vs. South Carolina game.

    The alert worked fine for the start of the game.

    Anyone else experience this?

    If not the long press how about non favorite teams that you have alerts enabled for. Maybe just for the small widget? Just some ideas as daily I watch games that are not mY favorite teams and those teams change daily.

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to iour users!

    after playing with the app in my downtime for a few days, ive noticed a few things.

    BUGS
    as was mentioned earlier in the forum, the NHL plays tab has a bug in it. its completely fine while the game is in progress. however, when the score goes final...you can only see the scoring & penalties for the first period only.

    also, one other bug that i've found. in the new NFL game details setup, the line score fails to update the score when a team scores while just simply looking at the screen. I have to go back to the nfl main screen (where it shows all of the games' scores) and go back into that game for it to show the updated score. i hope thats enough information for you to understand what is wrong.

    SUGGESTIONS
    > can we get the plays tab removed, and instead just show the plays in the bottom of the game details screen for all sports??? it would be so much easier to see which player scored after pressing on the alert.

    > for the NHL, take out the penalties summary?? im not sure how other people think about this. but to me, its useless.

    > are the logos for the game details, check-in, and stats, really neccessary? i think its wasted space. simplify it. lets just get the words so we know which is which. with the ads at the bottom, we need all the space we can get.

    > we need stats for all of the league sports as a whole, not just baseball.

    > playoff seedings (or conference) for hockey, basketball, ect. not just divisional, like it is now. and when the playoffs come, give us the matchups and series score (for the best of #)

    > and lastly the widget, not much to complain about there except i believe that it should automatically switch to whichever fav team plays next. i shouldnt have to scroll manually to the team.

    > and i almost forgot, the NFL plays.... please please PLEASE combine the xtra point field goals with the touchdown score. theres not point in having two separate scoring plays for basically the 7 points total that is rarely ever missed on the extra point.

    hope you took notes, lol i just didnt want to go crazy posting in here.....awesome job so far guys. youre clearly two of the best developers on the android market.

    Widget issue yesterday.

    It was well into the Islanders hockey game and I was getting the system notifications, but I noticed that in the widget, the game hadn't even started.

    I opened the live scores app (not through the widget, but by clicking the live scores shortcut) and then closed the app immediately and the widget started updating from there.

    Same thing today with the Knicks game. Game started at 12:00, looked at the widget at 12:20 and no updates. This time I clicked the widget and it took me to the game sceen, where, there also, it didn't look like the game started.

    I then exited and the widget updated immediately and has been updating since.

    I'm sure you guys will figure it out when you get back in.

    Thanks for the great app.

    Suggestion
    I would like to see a live blog/game comments section added for all sports... That way users can communicate with each other during the game and maybe let those who don't have the ability to watch on tv know what is going on. ScoresMobile had something like this and it was my favorite feature of that app. (They had one guy blog a specific game for the day or week, it wasn't an every game feature.) If you could make it peer to peer then the LiveScores community could share game information and keep users updated on games.

    Also, it would be nice if the widget could send a message to the notifcation bar to let me know that my game has started.

    AND... a pregame feed would be nice... So we could read a match up report/injury report for all sports. Sports tap got a feed from AP I think. In hockey I would like to be able to see what the projected lines/starting goalies are. Just suggestions, as I did delete my other sports scores apps after the widget came out... these are the only things that I miss.

    Bug
    I also have the problem where the widget doesn't update... but if I hit the widget and close it out the widget then updates for the rest of the game. Looks great though.

    I think I have a pretty good guess on how to fix this one - thanks for the heads up!

    You're right about the bug, others have mentioned above - we'll be fixing this soon (still on vacation haha).

    Your suggestion for the blog sounds something like what we have for iPhone Sportacular. The users are able to post comments from the app however iPhone Sportacular requires you to sign into facebook to use that feature. We have planned to add this support to Android Sportacular as well.

    Regarding the notification, we do have game-start notifications - though it seems they don't always work, we're looking into this as well.

    Anyone else here ever travel to a place with very weak signal? There's a local pub we go to around here to watch games, and inside, the signal gets extremely weak. I've found that I have to turn my alerts off because in about 3 hours, my battery will drop by about 50%. I know it's probably not an app problem, but an Android problem. My friend's iPhone loses most signal too, but he doesn't have near the battery kill as I do. Bah.



    Also, I have the same widget problem. Sometimes it won't start, but when it does start, it will often quit updating. Upon opening the app (not the widget), the widget will then update.

    Cheers.

    Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but I've set all of my favorite teams on my droid Incredible and see no way to add a widget.

    youve got to long press on an open space on one of youre homescreens. a list will pop up and just scroll down until you see the option for the livescores widget.

    What I meant is, it's not in my list of available widgets to add.

    as was mentioned earlier in the forum, the NHL plays tab has a bug in it. its completely fine while the game is in progress. however, when the score goes final...you can only see the scoring & penalties for the first period only.

    and also the widget chooses to work and not work. i have to manually go into the app itself to get the widget to start updating again. afterwards, its fine though.

    also, one other bug that i've found. in the new NFL game details setup, the line score fails to update the score when a team scores while just simply looking at the screen. I have to go back to the nfl main screen (where it shows all of the games' scores) and go back into that game for it to show the updated score. i hope thats enough information for you to understand what is wrong.

    SUGGESTIONS
    > PLAY-BY-PLAY FOR ALL SPORTS. such as HOCKEY / BASEBALL. Just like football has.
    Hockey, for the sake of the shootouts, I wanna know who's shooting, and if they scored.
    and baseball so that i know how a player got from 2nd to 3rd base. Was there an error? Did he steal? WHAT HAPPENED!?!?!?

    > can we get the plays tab removed, and instead just show the "plays" in the bottom of the game details screen for all sports??? it would be so much easier to see which player scored after pressing on the alert. (oh, and maybe not in paragraph form. lol)

    EX) <(Goal Scorers name)>
    <ASSISTS: (players names)> <----Simplify

    > for the NHL, take out the penalties summary?? im not sure how other people think about this. but to me, its useless, unless you're going to tell us who is on the powerplay??

    > are the logos for the game details, check-in, and stats, really neccessary? i think its wasted space. simplify it. lets just get the words so we know which is which. with the ads at the bottom, we need all the space we can get.

    > we need stats for all of the league sports as a whole, not just baseball.

    > playoff seedings (or conference standings) for hockey, basketball, ect. not just divisional, like it is now.

    > when the playoffs come, give us the matchups and series score (for the best of #)

    > can we display the scores next to the respective teams' logo??? no big deal if cant.

    > and lastly the widget, not much to complain about there except i believe that it should automatically switch to whichever fav team plays next. i shouldnt have to scroll manually to the team.

    > and i almost forgot, the NFL plays.... please, please, PLEASE!!!!!!!! combine the extra point field goals with the touchdown score. theres not point in having two separate scoring plays for basically the 7 points total that is rarely ever missed on the extra point. unless our favorite team is the cowboy's whose field goal kicker misses the extra point :'(. (i cringe at the thought of that play)

    P.S. ^ The above also gives us basically two alerts for one scoring play. No need for two alerts,

    well......thats my feedback for you guys. keep it up!!!! Hopefully, there is room to implement these ideas into you're up and coming app.

    Looks like there was a server problem causing some of the games to not be updated for awhile. It should be resolved soon. Sorry about that!

    Happy new year everyone

    Bug

    During todays wildcard matchup between the Saints and Seahawks the Total score never changed. The score is currently 30 - 34 but the app is keeping early second quarter score of 17 - 7. Though the scores under the individual quarters appear to be correct. They read 10 10 0 10 for the saints and 7 17 10 and 0 for the seahawks.

    UPDATE
    I went back to the game by selecting a different sport and then again selecting nfl and then selecting the game (which had the correct score) and went in that way and the total had updated correctly. Maybe this is the same bug that causes the widget to not update unless you open the app?

    Same thing happened with the colts game...

    Noticed the same issue on my Nexus S. Also never got the game start alert. It was about 10 minutes into the game when I opened the app, then I started receiving alerts.

    also the same thing here. running the htc hero.
    it seems like its only in the nfl section. and the only way to get it to update is to back out of that game and go back in.

    Sorry for the long silence, holidays... We're also focusing all our attention on some server-musical-chairs which should be taking place over the next week. Hopefully you guys won't notice much if any further issues.

    Once this is over - its back to new features and bug fixes.

    Hope you all had a good holiday break!

    Is anyone having problems with the widgets? What started happening to me today is that i keep getting the "Loading your favorites" message on the widget. I narrowed it down to being a problem loading NBA teams (specifically for me the Warriors). If i load a new widget (either large or small) that is any other team in any other sport, then it works just fine. If i load a small widget for the Warriors, or a large widget that has a bunch of teams from other sports along with the Warriors, then it always gets stuck at the Loading favorites message.

    Anyone seeing this?

    Hmm. Only happening for the Warriors so far. I adding the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics and both of those work fine. Removed Warriors as a favorite and then re-added but still the same problem.
