* From the title of your choice to each page
* Enter any text you want to try to Monitor Page

******** Background note ********
Page Monitor works in background using iOS background API (but if you restart your iphone you must launch the app manually).

The background mode have to be enabled in settings page of Page Monitor. By activating this option, the app continues to check for any changes in the pages you configured even while you're not using and will notify you via notifications. The time between a test and the other is not configurable, it is the same iOS to decide when to proceed.

In Settings (of iPhone) -> General -> Background update - check that the background update is neabled for Page Monitor.

In Settings (of iPhone) -> Notification - check that the notifications are enabled for Page Monitor.

In ios you can't decide the time between checks. the app haven't this control for Apple constraints. Page Monitor runs in background with "Background Update" functions of Ios and it sends you the local notifications but with ios timer. Often the timer runs when your device is in standby, locked.

Continued use in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
