Android Football Push Scores Beta released

I have today released the Beta version of my Football Push Scores app for Android. This builds on the previous LFC Push Scores and now features all 20 Premier League teams.

Football Push Scores pushes goal alerts, half and full time scores for the team of your choice to your phone via Android's Cloud 2 Device Messaging..

It doesn't work like some apps where it runs in the background checking the server every 10 mins. The alert is pushed to your phone using C2DM. This means that you get alert instantly, don't need a background service running and don't need your Internet usage taken up by the App checking for updates every 5 minutes.

The alert shows itself in a notification at the top of the screen e.g. "GOAL Liverpool 2 - 0 Man United (Torres)" and you can click on the notification to run the app and show the full text as well as the last 20 alerts received. Some alerts can also include a link to a web site with extra information.

It requires the following:

Android 2.2 / Froyo
A Google account e.g. Gmail email registered to you phone.

Coming soon I hope to add SPL and Football League teams and add news updates taken from BBC Sport.
