The World Cup at CrowdScores

Posted by | App News, Features | No Comments

World Cup: Russia 2018

It seems like forever since we watched Germany lift the World Cup in 2014. We saw Mario Gotze score his 113th minute winner, Brazil got embarrassed 7-1 by the Germans and England did not even reaching our own low expectations of them. But once again, hopes have been renewed, the national team shirts are out of the wardrobes and excitement has set in once again for the world’s greatest tournament!

Here at CrowdScores, we are just as excited and we have a lot in store to come over the upcoming 31 days of football!

Within the App

We will be giving you the scores and incidents from every World Cup game as they happen by the second. Whether there’s a yellow card in the Egypt v Saudi Arabia game or the decisive goal in the Final, you can help this happen! You can contribute goals, lineups, cards, substitutions and much more.

As well as making your mark on the app through contributions, you can also talk to fellow World Cup enthusiasts on the comments tab, whether it be about the game or the tournament. You will get to meet like minded individuals who are passionate about the game.

Community

Why not join in with the CrowdScores community and get involved with some of the activities we are participating in? FIFA have released Fantasy Football and a Prediction competition, in anticipation of the World Cup. We have set up our own CrowdScores leagues so that everyone can compete against each other. You can discuss tactics or brag about differential picks within the comments section of the app!

Later on in the summer, we will be also hosting our very own FIFA tournament amongst our users as well! Over the coming weeks, a tournament will start within the CrowdScores community (staff included!) to see who is the ultimate FIFA champion.

Join us on CrowdScores and get involved with the best tournament in the world!

 

iOS 4.2.4 Update Now Available

Posted by | App News | No Comments

iOS version 4.2.4 with improvements to the CrowdScores Community released this week.

As the community grows in the app, we are always looking to improve the experience for our users. So we have used your feedback and this week we have begun to roll out an update to iOS.

Moderators

As the community expands, it becomes a lot more difficult to monitor all the chats and find people who are being detrimental to the community and spoil it for everyone else with abusive behaviour or spamming.

We have recruited six users with a good track record of reporting and conduct within the community to help CrowdScores moderate the comments section of the games. They will also be there to give feedback and improvements to the team, which will help the community become a better place.

User Profiles

You asked for them, we listened! We are happy to announce that user Profiles are coming to iOS. When the profile picture of the user is clicked, it will come up with a user profile card, showing contributions, comments and likes count.

We also have made major improvements in the performance of the app. The app will run a lot smoother and faster when it comes to a busy matchday.

Keep an eye out on the App Store for the latest update, or, you can download the app!

Contribute more… Contribute players!

Posted by | App News | No Comments

Both Android and iOS have very recently added the ability to contribute players. You may ask yourselves:

Why do I care about this new contribute players feature?

Well, if you notice that we are missing a player in a team, you can let us know what the correct one is by contributing that player.

How can I contribute a player?

You can contribute players by accessing the lineup page. If you notice that a player is missing from the team, which as a result is not allowing you to contribute lineups, you can simply click the “Add a player” button that is denoted as text on iOS and as a button at the top right of the screen on android.

This will bring up a form that you can fill in for adding a player. The only required fields for sending us a player contribution are “First Name”, “Last Name” and “Team”. On Android, the required fields are also denoting the * symbol, in order to make it even more helpful for you to contribute any missing players. If the player you have added is a valid addition to that team, it means that we will accept your player contribution. Hooray!

What happens if you accept my contribution?

You will be able to see the player that you’ve added to the squad of that team. How amazing is that!?

My app version does not have this feature. How do I get it?

This feature is live on iOS and Android, so make sure to go to the App Store or Google Play and update CrowdScores to the latest version so that you can start adding players today!

The more player statistics, the better!

Player information had been introduced a few months ago on our Android app, with only an overview of the players’ profile being shown. Soon enough, not only will you be able to see the profile of the player, but also the statistics of that player, as the screenshots below denote.

What will I be able to do?

As shown above, you will be able to:

  1. Select a competition in which the player is competing.
  2. See lots of information regarding the player’s performance over the selected competition.

What extra information will I be able to see ?

  • Overview of yellow and red cards that the player has received
  • Number of goals and assists for the player
  • Number of times the player has been in the starting lineup or the bench
  • How many times the player has been substituted

Sound exciting? Then stay tuned as this update is soon going to be on its way to your device.

Faster updates. More battery. Less data usage.

Posted by | App News, Features | No Comments

CrowdScores was already the fastest live scores app, but we didn’t stop there.

Using Firebase Realtime Database, the app just became a whole lot faster.

What this means for you

  1. Previously the match list was refreshed either periodically or after your pull-to-refresh gesture. Now, it will just always be up-to-date. Whether it’s goals, half-time or cards, it will update straightaway. Magic!
  2. You will now use less data. Now we just download the right data at the right time. Only what’s new will be downloaded. This means optimal data usage.
  3. You will save battery. By using less data, you will use less battery, so you can continue checking scores after a long day.

Now not only will you get the fastest notifications, but also the fastest updating match list!
