OhioTex, This was very well explained. Thanks. What behavior would you expect from a mobile device clicking on a direct link copied from the team site game iScoreCast link?OhioTex wrote: ↑Thu Apr 26, 2018 7:35 amthis thread has evolved from original questions. Two new points to respond to.. ..
i believe i can explain a bit of what is going on ...
point 1 - WEB LINK BEHAVIOR
(ie team link to a web page of scoreboards for games scored/scheduled for team/device ID). .
That link is a great link for a team on a computer but not for a game on mobile device. -- it is not a game specific link, it is a link to a collection of games - iscore central mobile app can't open the game, because it does not know what game to open. (true on Android and Apple)
on a computer the user clicks that team link, opens web page with field graphic background and scoreboards across the top for all games by that team/device. user then clicks on the scoreboard and the iscorecast for that game opens.
on a mobile device, the developers have "redirected" that url to the app download page. but no way to pass a game specific id to open in iscore central. a Potential solve would be for developers to pass a TEAM ID or DEVICE ID from the link to iscore central and Open like it was a favorited team. .. or let mobile devices open the Scoreboard page and then force game open in central after that.
however the easier solve is to just help instruct the fans to just open the app and search team name on game day.
Point 2 - SEACRH AND FIND in ISCORE CENTRAL APP ......
In the iscore central app (blue icon) .... game search and team search are different.
When iscore central app (blue con) opens, it opens to GAME SEARCH and when i type in VS South. It has no trouble finding the recent VS south games. (in the search time window .. X days forward , and Y days back (i think ~3 days) .
This is how i tell fans to find games in the APP. no need to even share a link, just open your iscore central app (blue icon), type in Team Name on game day and go.
in the iscore central app when i go to TEAM menu and FIND TEAM and type in VS South. it has no trouble finding your VS South TEAM and opening the Team Page ( but subordinate pages, games, stats etc are password protected as you expected)
This seems to be the same link opened when I click on a specific game from the the http://data.iscorecentral.com/iscorecas ... d4bbaa3a64 site
I just logged out of my iScoreCentral and tried that. I will answer. Apparently that link is similarly NOT useful for the mobile device app but is for the computer.
