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.
