Ute Hub App Suggestion Box

Okay folks, I’m asking for suggestions for new features on the Ute Hub app.  Chime in here any ideas or tweaks you have. Here are a couple I can think of, in no particular order:  Chat, boardmail.

    Make Pace pay 10 cents per word on all of his posts.

    more for the web site, maybe, but how about a page with links to, or copies of, highlights and accounts of historically significant games, like the hoops comeback vs. UCLA, Sugar Bowl, blowout win vs Oregon, etc.  Even if limited to the last 4-5 years it could be something that is built-up over the future seasons.

    • Itacoatiara22

      That’s a great idea! Although I may never get any work done again if that is in place.

    • Tony

      Sounds like a fun thing to have, but someone would have to input/manage that data.

    This isn’t necessarily for the app, but something I’d like to see is some sort of highlighting or shading or whatever of posts that are new in a thread since the last time I read that thread. For instance, if a thread has 30 posts in it, I read them all, then re open the thread later when it has maybe 34 posts, it would be nice to see the 4 ‘new’ posts highlighted in some way.

    Some suggestions for the website, which are also welcome.

    Like mentioned previously, URL s that link. 

    I’m trying to brainstorm what would add more to the utah fan experience. If I’m watching a game, chatting, is there a way to incorporate the team roster onto the site? Or is that too much work? having the football roster handy, with a search button to look up a player number that I see on TV would be unlike what anyone else has.

      The Ute Hub app has sports schedules and rosters. The site has schedules and results here: https://www.utehub.com/schedules/ and an easy one I can knock off is definitely adding the current rosters to the website.  Searching is a possible idea, but it’s pretty easy to find them by player number.

      Okay @Hammer and all, I added the rosters to the sports schedules on the website.  Check out an example here: https://www.utehub.com/schedules/?task=season&season_id=4

      Click on “Roster” and/or “Schedule” to switch between them, simialr to the app.

      Delicious idea.

    Can I get a push notification of a new post from, say, OnlyU?  Like make my phone play “Utah Man”.

    • Tony

      Interesting idea.

        Yeah notifications in the app would be sweet. I mostly use a browser on my phone anyways.

      Could I get some kind of notification whenever Pace posts? Like it automatically shuts my phone off or something?

      • BattleGroundUte

        He added an ignore feature. 

    • PlainsUte

      Also for phrase matching, like if someone posts “It’s a great day to be a Ute”, I’ll probably want to check it out.

  • Tacoma Ute

    Something that would allow you to remotely control the score in games.

    • Tony

      There would be a fee for that.

      Electric shocks to the Pac-12 refs?

      • Tony

        We could start a gofundme campaign for that.

        That reminds me of this video. Turn on subtitles if you don’t speak Norwegian.
