Sports fans want to be in the know -- they want to know as soon as the news happens or their team scores. Thankfully as BlackBerry users we have ScoreMobile to keep us informed on all the latest sports happenings. I've used ScoreMobile for quite some time, but it wasn't until recently that I started using the built-in push alerts for my teams. Enabling these alerts lets you get scores as they happen for any number of teams across the various professional leagues. Keep reading and we'll take a look at just how easy it is to setup alerts in ScoreMobile.

How to setup push alerts in ScoreMobile for BlackBerry

From the main screen, press the Menu key then choose Settings. Choose Alerts.

From here you can choose between Teams or Games. The Games setting is really accessed through the box score for a particular game, so we won't get into it here (to add a game alert just go to the box score and select Track Game).

To add a Team alert, choose Teams then Add Team.

On the next screen pick your league then choose a team.

Depending on the sport, you then have options as to when you'd like to receive updates. In this case I chose the NJ Devils, so we can pick from Game Start, Game End, Close Game, Score - Each Period, Every Goal or Power Play. So as you can see there are plenty of options to keep you informed as you team goes on. I like to stick with Game Start and Score - Each Period. This lets me know when a game is starting and will also send updates after each period.

It's just that easy. You can track multiple teams/games so you'll always know the score, plus you can easily suspend alerts with just one click for those special "no BlackBerry" times. ScoreMobile is 100% free for both phones and the PlayBook and can be installed from the links below.

Can someone share a screen shot of the alerts?

They are pushed into the messages app and the homescreen.

Ah ok thanks I wondered how they were pushed.

i've been using alerts since it was available the only thing i wish you could do was turn them off if you are say watching the event live because about 30 after my phone tells me.

Been using alerts for The Ravens and Orioles.
You can also integrate the games into your calendar which i do for football season only.

A lot of people downloaded the upgrade for this and it stopped working. For me it forced me to wipe my Torch 9800. That was a while ago and a lot of the reviews in AppWorld are still the same. I suggest backing up everything on your phone before downloading the upgrade. I still haven't upgraded because of all the negative comments.

yup me too.............

I have upgraded a few times and I have never had an issue that has forced me to wipe my whole device.

After i did the update I had my phone reboot. Near the end of rebooting, when it's supposed to go into home screen, it automatically rebooted and kept doing it for a very long time. I finally had to use BBSAK to fix it.

I've upgraded to the latest version & haven't experienced any negative issues. The only suggession I have for an enhanced user experience is similar to an earlier post; cancelling the push alerts for a match that you have open in the app tracking live.

What about for the playbook? No alerts yet! Why?
