From Jonathan Rosenthal:
"The Spotswood Football Club began in 1927 and has been one of the best run clubs ever since.The club is one of the powerhouse clubs in the Western Region Football League and continues to grow and improve and stay ahead of the chasing pack.It therefore should come as no surprise that the club has now delved in to the world of mobile phone apps and has now released its very own native app for the iPhone.The app contains information about your beloved football club such as:- Latest News- Results- Ladders- Fixtures- Team news- Sponsors- Grounds- Memberships- Training and much much moreIf you have any interest in the football club the app is your must have tool for season 2013!Do not hesitate and download the app now!"Reason for the registration page: The reason why we have included the registration page in our apps is because it serves a very important function in the apps and in particular the users of the apps. As you can imagine sports clubs are made up of all kinds of different people and they vary in team, age, gender, skill level and their actual role within the club. The registration page allows the club admin to send push notifications to pre- selected groups rather than having to send the push notification to all users who have downloaded the app. This is an extremely important function to have as not all users of the app will want to receive information about every single team. An example of this would be if the Under 13 boys soccer team were playing on the weekend. The boys who play in the Under 17 team have no interest whatsoever in the details of the under 13 boys soccer team's game on the weekend. The registration page allows the club admin to send out a push notification to only those boys who form part of the under 13 boys soccer team rather than the whole entire club. Without this feature the club admin will send the message to the whole club. You can imagine given the fact that some of the clubs have in excess of 25 teams, receiving messages about every single team would become quite annoying and would generally force user to then turn off the push notifications that the club admin is sending via the app, thus essentially making the app redundant as one of the major reasons clubs are using the apps are to improve their lines of communication with their players, members, supporters and sponsors. The registration page is of critical importance to the app because it provides the functionality to the club admin of sending out group push notifications to a targeted audience and thereby ensuring the exact targeted group of people within the club receive the message and in the process the push notifications are not annoying or distracting users of the app who have no interest in the message being sent out by the club admin.
