Judging by the downloads so far, many of you have already discovered that FRC Spyder has been updated for the 2013 season for iOS and Android devices. For those who have used it in the past, make sure to download the latest update for your device to get support for 2013. For those who have not used it before, FRC Spyder makes it easy to keep track of match results and rankings for FRC events.
In addition, the app allows you to subscribe to your favorite teams to receive nearly instant score alerts using push notifications. Just find your desired teams in the team list and use the menu button followed by “Receive Live Updates” on iOS or by holding down on the team and selecting “Add score notices” on Android. This feature is especially handy for family and friends to follow along with your team’s progress if they can’t attend your event in person.
I didn’t actually fix anything for the Nexus 7 layout. I re-read the post mentioning the layout problem last week, tested it on my wife’s Nexus 7, and it worked fine for me. If you see anything that doesn’t look right, let me know.
Indeed, I just noticed that myself. Unfortunately it’s in the iOS app code, not on the server, so fixing it will require another trip through the App Store review process (which means you won’t see a fix this weekend since reviews typically take about a week). Sorry everyone That’s what I get for trying to rush out an update for 2013.
Didn’t Spyder used to give you a message when one of your “Favorite” teams posted a score?
Also, (sorry if I’m way off base for feature requests) it would be cool if you view an event, and then look at the teams…and then you see a team you want to follow to click them to see their match schedule and then be able to press the “Menu” button and have the option to “Add To Favorites”…
Sorry if this has been requested before or discussed…
