The app is great but on Marshmallow it lags my Galaxy S5 to a crawl so I had to disable the service from WebAlert's options. I didn't had this problem on Lolipop and i'm waiting for the devs to fix the issue with Marshmallow. Thanks for this awesome app by the way .. you rock! :) 03.12.2016 :: are you still working on this developers ?! you realize that having to open the app o check for changes every time i remember about it it kinda defeats the purpose right ? if you don't want to work on it anymore will you open source it like you promised you will so that someone else will continue supporting it ?
This app totally doesn't work if the destination website requires logging in. It would be great if the built-in webbrowser could remember cookies and used them when downloading a webpage. It would be great if I could specify an update interval in hh:mm:ss for each separate webpage and not for the app. Android by default allows background apps to wake up your device every 15 minutes. Not sure why you need the permission to disable power saving mode.
After much trouble shooting I've finally got Webalert back up and running nearly as good as new. I dont think my issue was with the application itself but with the website I'm monitoring.
It was working great for many months but now I noticed it does not check for updates anymore. I had set for it to check every min and it was working but now none of it is being checked. It has not been working for past 2 days. Is there something wrong with the app?
The workings of include similar elements -command requires some experimenting. I have had it include only every second similar item, and couldn't work myself around it. Once I accidentally muted a notification of an alert from the pop-up notification and couldn't unmute it. Had to redo it from the scratch. The biggest caveat is that it doesn't seem to update over mobile data when roaming. Useless for travellers.
Extremely useful tool to monitor sites, but be aware that it will eat a LOT of traffic (This is unavoidable of course). For example, monitoring kickstarter consume 386kb per check, doing that every 5 minutes consume 3,3GB of data in a month :)
The app is still in beta, so please excuse or report per email a bug in case you encounter any.
Changes in this version:
• Improving the recording process (Include similar elements)
• Improve battery consumption
