The data supplier that I use to get the up to date results, fixtures and tables has lost the rights to the content and unfortunately as a result of this the applications that use this data are currently now unable to get updates.
The applications that are affected by this are the Premier League Fan Centre and the LFCHistory android apps.
Both apps are still stable and will not crash as a result of this but obviously this means that they are no longer able to update. A summary of the features affected by this can be seen below.
I am currently looking at a number of replacement services so that this issue can be fixed. One of the options that has potential requires me to set up another server in the cloud in order to process the requests.
If anyone can suggest any potential football data services that I could investigate or cheap hosting services that offer tomcat 7 hosting please let me know .
Thank you and please bear with me whilst I try to find a solution for this issue.
The data issue currently affects the following features.
All other features such as news, injuries and twitter feeds are currently working as normal.
The data issue currently affects the current seasons league table and fixture. Luckily the seasons results are taken directly from the LFCHistory.net website and so they are unaffects.
All of the other lfc history site features will continue to work as normal.
Sorry for the inconvenience, please bear with me whilst I look for a solution.
A new release of LFCHistory was released this evening.
This contains a number of bug fixes and improvements to the way the ads are displayed which reduces the resources requirements on the device. You may notice a new permission requirement when installing the application, this is to make it possible to save, share and as wallpaper the images that are displayed in the twitter feeds.
Some of you may have noticed that the current seasons fixtures and league table have stopped updating recently. This is a result of our data provider losing the rights to the football data. We are looking into a solution to this, for more information on the issue click here.
Whilst we are unable to receive this data, I have hidden the fixtures tab from the current season page to avoid confusion.
New Features in this release.
The main new feature that is included in this release is the ability to sort the season stats.
Previously this table was always sorted by the number of appearances. This is fine if you want to see Hendersons name at the top as an ever present in the team but if you want to follow Suarez, Sturridge or even Skrtels scoring great progress, it was not ideal.
You can now click on the column header to sort by either goals or appearances.
Another small change is that all of the margins on the screens have been updated so that the layouts appear better on all phone devices.
Hope you enjoy the application, please bear with us on the fixtures issue, we are looking for a solution.
As a result of the well publicised troubles relating to Mt.Gox, the app is currently unable to obtain the latest prices.
Sorry for any inconvenience if you have noticed the app crashing, I am working on a solution and hope to have a solution as soon as possible.
I'm sure a lot if you like me are more bothered about getting your bitcoin back than being able to check on its value.
