VEX via allows you to follow the progress and results of VEX Robotics Competition, VEX U, and VEX IQ Challenge events. Team lists, match schedules, match results, rankings, and skills challenge results are easy to access and can be sorted by event or by team. Results are automatically downloaded as the events unfold, and you can also register to receive instant score alerts for your favorite teams. Instant score alerts use the Push Notification service, allowing you to receive team alerts even when VEX via is not running.
* Add a new Score Details page that will show detailed score results (starting with 2019 World Championship)
* Rankings for VEX IQ Challenge now report Average Points
* Possible fix for data being re-downloaded each time on devices with low storage space

This app is extremely useful. It organizes rankings, overall schedules, and team-specific schedules fairly intuitively, making it easy to check upcoming matches and scores in the chaos of a competition.
My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to be optimized for all specs. I experience infrequent crashes and similarly infrequent periods of non-responsiveness. Also, when no favorites are saved you are instructed to create a favorite by tapping the heart icon in the top right of an event or team page, but the icon you need to tap is actually a star.
Ok app. No notifications
It’s an okay app. You get what you pay for. If only notifications worked. The app doesn’t even ask for the ability to show notifications, nor does it show up in the list of apps that can.
This app is a poorly programmed piece of garbage. It has potential to be great but needs a serious rethinking from the ground up. Every time I start the app, it is as though it were just born. Open the list of “current events?” It repopulated this list (i.e. nothing is stored on my device) starting at least three years ago. This can be accomplished with good WiFi but not with poor cellular reception. Set a favorite team? That’s not stored on my device, either. That information might download from the cloud or God-knows-where if you’ve got WiFi access. If you’d like updates of the match because you can’t be there, ask somebody else for updates. That will be much faster.
