Where can I download Canadian Classifieds Alerter?
Google Play or Amazon.
How much data will it use?
Here’s a simple formula you can use to get a ballpark
(X) = minutes you’re on data and not WiFi a day (2 hours = 120)
(Y) = Refresh frequency (Check settings to see potential values)
(Z) = Number of alerts
((X) \ (Y)) x 60 x (Z) = Amount of kilobytes used in a run of the day.
Someone who has 6 alerts, who is not on WiFi for 2 hours a day (120 / 15) x 60 x 6 = 2.8 MB’s a day… or 0.0028 GB’s a day.
If data usage is a huge concern, you can turn off checking when not on WiFi in the settings
How much battery will it drain?
Barely any really. Might equate to losing 2 minutes of charge time a day, tops.
Will it work on my Android phone?
Unless you have an Android phone older than 2011, it will work! I tested Canadian Classifieds Alerter on a Galaxy Ace 2 which is running Android 4.0.3 (Api level 15) and it works just fine. The only issue I’ve found is that it ignores ringtone/vibrate settings. This will be fixed in a future update.
Will it work on BlackBerry 10 devices?
According to the Amazon compatibility checker, it does. I no longer own my Q10, so I can’t test it. I will update the FAQ when I find out for sure.
How can I get it to open the Kijiji app instead of the browser?
You can’t. Unless Kijiji modifies their app to open all links associated with Kijiji. This is out of my control unfortunately 🙁
Hi. Is there any way to download your app to an iPhone?
Hey Natasha, I will send you an email when the iPhone version is coming! I’m hoping 2-3 weeks, we’ll see.
I would really like to get this app on the iphone. looks perfect.
I would like to filter, search by postal code, is this possible
Use Webview mode, you’ll be able to specify your postal code.
Webview mode is at the top of the page for the iOS/iPhone version
It’s at the top right on the Android version.
Hi, it works on my Blackberry 10 device (Blackberry Passport).
Great App – Thanks!!
The Alerts work on a Blackberry 10, but when I click on the preview button it always says the Ad no longer exists and image is not available etc. However, if I then go back and click on the web browser button, the Ad is there.
This is a bug that should be easy to fix, hopefully… Thanks!!
I will email you! The amazon store apk is way out of date. Every time I went to upload a new binary, the amazon dev console said it works for zero devices.
Have you fixed the ringstone or vibrate mode on Galaxy?? It just didn’t work on my cell phone but it use do work before (vibrate).
Do you have the same problem with iPhone ?? Will it be fixed ?? I have a Galaxy 7.
