About this app

Web Alert lets you monitor any website (or specific parts of it) you wish in order to be notified when it is updated. It even works when a login, a form post or password prompt is necessary to access the site. For example, get notified when a price changes, a new article is published, you receive exam results or an answer in a forum, a registration period has opened, etc. You can also check if your own website is currently online and working correctly, or use it for UI testing and web monitoring.

You navigate with its special browser to the webpage and the app tracks your navigation steps so that these can be repeated later in the background automatically. On the page you select the text (or HTML) visually that you want to watch for updates so you receive only notifications for modifications in these parts. The alarm report of the checker highlights the differences.

Other apps only automate checking repeatedly the raw content behind a simple URL. This app, however, also features Web Automation where instructions (macros) are recorded interactively. Your actions to reach the website (and your selection of the text whose updates you want to keep track of) are replayed automatically in intervals specified by you. This gives you the additional opportunity to oversee alterations in Deep Web pages.

The app allows you to be the first to know about changes and news. It can save you time and money and the burden to remember checking in on web pages frequently yourself.

Features:
✔ Notification when a website changes
✔ Monitor various websites on the watchlist
✔ Simplified way to give instructions for checking
✔ Visual difference of all modifications to a website detected (diff)
✔ It can act as a web monitor to check the availability and correctness of your homepage
✔ Choose exactly which parts of a page to watch
✔ Save mobile traffic by disabling or reducing checks for mobile networks
✔ Check pages even behind logins, HTTP Authentications, form posts or long navigational sequences
✔ Monitor websites with JavaScript
✔ 256-Bit AES-encryption for all sensitive data
✔ Notification alarms using sound, vibration and/or the LED
✔ Browse the different versions of a website (includes offline browser)
✔ Requires only a minimum amount of permissions.

This project was developed as part of a thesis at the University of Hamburg (Germany). Some modern websites with too much JavaScript do not work properly yet, please have patience.

i like this and have been using this more and more lately. I have the paid pack as well and am pleased with the new functions. One thing that does bother me is there is no options for Grouping or catagorizing types of sites, they all just sit in a single list and that can get really unorganized and messy. Concider adding the option, until then 3 stars for lack of the option and pricey for being unorganized.

Works great. Simple intuitive interface that just works! No fancy bullsh*t.... Decent amount of settings that are easy to understand. 1. Enter the website you want to track 2. Select the region of the page you want to monitor You can set how often the app checks the desired website for changes. *the app will advise you to lock the app so android doesn't automatically close it so it can run in the background in order to keep monitoring the desired website.

Stopped working. I don't get it. I installed it and set up a few alerts and it worked fine (manual & automatic). A couple of hours later, it appears that the alerts I set up are dimmed and I can't get them to run manually or automatically. And no matter what I try I can't uncheck the "Checks during Standby" box. When I try it just takes me to a list of battery optimized apps. I've tried every setting, and cannot get it to update any of the alerts on the list. I liked it when it worked.
