The scroll jacking on that landing page is quite intrusive, pretty annoying. The app itself looks cool though! Good work.
Thanks Jack, we are mobile devs not web devs so any tips you may have for this would be appreciated. I have never heard of scroll jacking before it was brought up in this thread, nor do I know how to reproduce the problem. Glad you liked the app :)
That landing page scroll jacking is so goddamn awful. It's messing with my trackpad gestures.
The app looks good though but damn it's a bad first impression.
Hi Thomas, could you be more specific? Does this only happen in full screen? I am not a web developer so I just used a bootstrap template - if you have any tips to fix it that would be much appreciated.
I believe the problem is in the "smoothscroll.js" file. If you remove that, then we should be more happy.
There's no scroll hijacking in Firefox. I've checked right when he posted his comment. I think it's a browser-specific issue.
Only just saw this reply, sorry. Whatever is changing the scrolling on the page (smoothscroll.js most likely) blocks the 2 finger horizontal swipe to go back in Chrome for mac.
Hot dang, you sure pack a lot of stats about each game. Love it. Bye bye NFL Mobile :D
Thanks Catalin :)
Very cool, and it looks like any scroll-jacking has been removed from the landing page.
Question: how do you manage the actual stats? I've been thinking about an NHL-based stats app for some time but they have those on 100% lockdown, no one else is allowed to make any money with official stats without licensing.
Hi Brendon, thanks for your comment. We pay for licensed stats and it is quite expensive for real-time. It's a raw data stream in json/xml - our server collects this data, parses it, organizes it, and delivers to the client. If you are looking to deliver stats for any sports league you need licensed data. You will also run into other issues if you try to use team logos. Sports data is a pain but the big network apps that are available now are so out-dated and terrible I thought it would be worth making a modern one.
Make sense, thanks and all the best.
