Icebreaker intelligently watches the Twitter accounts of NHL insiders and notifies you when a trade or rumour is reported within seconds. You can subscribe or unsubscribe to additional news content such as contract signings or staff hires. If you love being the first to know NHL news then Icebreaker is your best friend!

Icebreaker knows when something irrelevant to NHL news has been tweeted and it will ignore them. Occasionally a tweet may slip through but it's always learning from its mistakes.

What’s New

Version 1.1.0

New Features:
- Notifications no longer require background app refresh to be enabled
- Tweets with web links now show a preview

Bug fixes:
- Retweeted quote tweets are now displayed properly
- Fixed bug where "&" symbols were not displayed properly

This update should solve the issues of missing notifications that some users were having. Unfortunately this meant removing two features in "Do Not Disturb" and muting due to the technicalities of how Icebreaker handled the processing of notifications. I am looking at alternative ways to bring these back in the future.

Great App could use simple enhancements

This app could be 5 stars if it had two enhancements.

1) Search capability. It is very difficult to scan 100’s of tweets in this app when you want to quickly find out about certain players or teams.

2) A way to select favorite teams. To be able to select 1 or more teams that you want to follow both trades to and away.

Best Hockey News App

It's basically just an app that provides customized twitter alerts, and it's amazing. I love the settings and options so you can decide if you want notifications about Rumors/Signings or whatever

Fantastic App

Downloaded this app for the 2017 National Hockey League Trade deadline. I can only hope this app stays updated and current! Loved it and enjoyed getting notifications for trades!
