I’ve knocked together a little something on Android for people to get election results this evening.

“But why? We have the BBC and various other outlets.”

Well yes. Firstly, I did it for the challenge. There is a USP however – you can add seats to the “My Seats” feature which will give you a notification to your device when that result comes in.

It’ll be on the Play store in a bit, but you can download it directly here and install it on your Android device.

Known bug: For some reason some people on mobile data have an issue with one screen (where you drill down to the candidates for a specific seat). I’m aware of it, but don’t have time to fix it tonight whilst I’m speaking to various people at counts around the country and entering the data. The rest of the app works fine… and if it doesn’t, it’s free, so tough. 🙂
