TheMailBag has been working feverishly to develop an App to provide our members with the best race day experience possible and to move away from relying on your telecommunications company in actually delivering the messages! Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of our Apple and Android Apps.
From tomorrow night, we will be transitioning all tipping based customers (Movers + Yard services) from receiving a SMS over to an App Notification. We have tested the App over the carnival and it held up on the big days.
The App features a chat room for paying members to use throughout the race day. This chat room will be highly moderated and we ask that you do not disclose specific package tips or information prior to any race. We will also be strictly enforcing a friendly, positive environment, in the chatroom and no targeted abuse will be tolerated at any time.
So, to get started, download the App from the Apple App Store or Android Google Play Store and login with the details you signed up to our website with. If you don’t remember this information, use the password reset feature on our website (this email may go to your junk/spam box). Make sure when opening the app that you allow notifications.
Please note, if you don’t receive an email from the reset password feature, you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org who will be providing manual password resets right up to the jump time on Friday and Saturday.
How it works
You will receive a notification on your App displaying a limited amount of information. We will always include the top 4 numbers followed by betting information at the top, so it is shown on your home screen.
To read the full information, you will click on the notification to open TheMailBag App. If you already have the app open, click on the notification bell at the top and click on the specific notification.
We appreciate any and all feedback that you can provide to us to make the App experience better, so please, feel free to email email@example.com with your feedback.
Have a fat weekend,
Dicko, Drew, Rob and Pete
Unlike most in the game, Drew wasn’t born with a form guide in his hand or a great love for the game. Drew became interested in horse racing after starting his website, The Profits, in 2012 focusing on NBA and AFL. Entering the twitter landscape, Drew quickly saw the engagement and passion shown by the community for horse racing and started looking deeper into the data before previewing his first race in 2013. What started out as interest in a sport has quickly turned into a love-affair that will last a lifetime.
