Where can I download Canadian Classifieds Alerter?
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 🙁
