Have you ever overheard a quick mention of a breaking sports story and wanted to know more? Are you curious about the latest injury news for one of your fantasy players? These things happen to us all of the time. Our new real-time sports search engine solves the problem. We return the latest results from the stories in our index and from the conversation on Twitter. Give it a shot by visiting LockerPulse.com/search or by using the Search bar on the left hand side of any page.
We’ve received a lot of positive comments about our high resolution background images. Starting today you can now choose to set your own background image, either from our library of images or by uploading one of your own. Registered users can now find this option in their “Settings” tab.
We’ve also improved how our background images show up on the iPad, although currently we haven’t figured out an effective way to allow you to view your custom backgrounds on the iPad.
Next week we should be rolling out some more exciting features!
Starting this morning all premium account members who are subscribed to get the daily newsletter received a vastly improved newsletter.
The new newsletter has a simplified design, scoreboard with your teams scores from the previous night, and story summaries below the headlines. Originally we weren’t sure how useful the daily newsletter would be, but the positive feedback has been overwhelming. Hopefully by now being able to see at a glance whether your team won last night, and by being able to see a little more than just the headline, we’ll make it easier to follow your teams on a day to day basis when you don’t have time to visit LockerPulse and read the full articles.
Here’s a screenshot of one of the new emails, customized for a NY sports fan (click to enlarge):
If you have any feedback, leave us a comment below or drop us an email.
Side note: if you do receive the daily email, you likely received two this morning. There was an issue with the first one showing the wrong teams, so we fixed it and sent the correct one out around 9 AM. We apologize for any confusion.
We recently received some feedback that the site didn’t display properly on the iPad. The iPad presents several challenges for web designers. In reality, most sites looking to make the most of the iPad should be redesigned from the bottom up with the unique functionality of the device in mind. In the meantime though, we’ve done some modifications to how the site is displayed when the iPad device is detected (see the screenshot below). There are a few minor issues with the background image not displaying correctly when you scroll on long pages, but for the most part the site should be fully functional. Leave us a comment below or drop us an email if you notice any issues and we’ll do our best to address them.
