Web Alert (Website Monitor)

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.

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.
