BBC Sport app push alerts: Follow Formula 1 and football

Want to know who's won the Formula 1 title but can't watch Sunday's race live? Or want to know if Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg are on pole, or check who's got the edge in practice?

With the BBC Sport app you can set push alerts to get the results of F1 races and sessions as they happen sent straight to your phone. On opening the alert you will go straight to our dedicated coverage page with reaction and analysis.

The app is freely available from Google Play  for Android devices, the App Store  for iPhones, and the UK Amazon Kindle Fire Appstore  .

To add the alerts, you might need to install the latest update of the app. Once installed, follow these steps.

  1. Visit the MyAlerts section of the app from within the menu
  2. Select the sport - Formula 1 or football
  3. In Formula 1, simply set the sessions you want to get alerts for. If you want football alerts, select the team(s) and types of alerts you want.
  4. Wait for the alerts to arrive - hopefully they're good news!

You can of course easily turn alerts off, for example you might not want to know the results of a race you're planning to watch the highlights of.

The app also now fully supports Chromecast, so you can cast any live action of highlights straight to the biggest screen in the house. Been watching while out and about?, simply cast the action to the TV as you get in.
