Tired of checking whether a Web page has published any desired content or has been updated? Do not worry about it with WEB Watchdog.

With this application you can automatate the task of checking a Web page in an easy way, preventing you to do the check as you would do with your Internet browser manually and visually and offering you to attend other occupations while you delegate this task in your device. At the time the application detects that the Web page must have been modified compared to the previous check, you will get a visual, audible or vibration notification, as you prefer.

You only have to select the checking time interval between the checks and specify the URL address of the Web page. The application allows you to do the check whenever you like, as well, in a quickly way, and not waiting for the selected checking time interval finishes. Also you can directly open the page from the application to check its content visually.

Additionally it keeps you informed at all times about the performed checks, saving them in a history with associated info. To complete the data, the applicaton shows you the amount of Bytes consumed of your Internet connection for each check done and the total amount allowing you to know how you use and spend your connection.

Importantly, it works fine with HTML Web page that do not include dynamic content. Otherwise if the page is being constantly updated for this reason, because of having adverstisement banners or news for instance, the application will not be able to prevent to notify you false positives.

WEB Watchdog offers free all its features but it is sponsored by advertisements to help maintain the tool. A paid application without adverts will be launched in future.

We wish the application is useful for you and allows you to save time focusing it in other tasks. We encourage you to send us your comments, opinions, suggestions, bugs to improve this project.
