How to Sign-up for Push Notifications for HTGSports Events

iSports 2 for iOS and Android includes a push notifications feature for  score updates and general category updates. This feature is both simple to use and extremely useful. General categories are typically for weather notifications; these will keep you updated immediately if games are cancelled or delayed, and the score updates alert will let you know the game score of a particular team.

This is a simple way to immediately find out the scores of games you are unable to attend, or simply keep tabs on other teams you are interested in.  Push notifications are often more reliable than text alerts since text alerts may be be throttled by your cell phone carrier and not delivered.

How to for Android:

Open the iSports 2 application on your Android phone.
