I’m really pleased to announce v1.4 of Stats Zone is now available - get it on the App Store. The headline news is free push notifications for the rest of the season but we’ve got some other great improvements to the app to tell you about too.
We’ve tried to make the push notifications as straightforward as possible for you to use - simply choose up to 5 teams and get live updates of lineups, goals, red cards, half time and full time scores. You can even change your selected teams anytime you want. You also have the option of getting updates from the excellent Stats Zone blog and updates about the app such as when new versions are available or we add new competitions.
We’ve also improved the pre-match experience by adding the list of substitutes to the lineup view, here’s an example of what you’ll see from now on:
But that’s not all, here’s a list of the other changes included in v1.4…
We’ve extended the Player Dashboard feature, you can now show all a player’s defensive or attacking events only, for example here’s Alex Song yesterday v QPR:
We’ve improved the existing Player Dashboard, those will now display a player’s own goals too - not that they’ll thank us for that.
There’s also some new event types - you can filter a team or player’s shots by whether they were from inside or outside the penalty area and we’ve added a backpasses category to help analyse who uses their keeper to keep possession and who simply don’t want to play riskier forward passes.
We realise the App Store is a global marketplace and to make things a bit easier for our international users we’ve changed it so all match times display in your local time zone wherever you are - no conversion necessary.
As ever, last season’s Premier League and Champions League matches are available in the app for free, so please download it and give it a try if you haven’t already.
