No room for a mistake Biggest problem I have is if you miss something you can not go back and fix it without erasing everything in the process
Very complete and dynamic Quite frankly the best app for scoring, being able to import team rosters, also able to keep individual and team stats.
Pretty awesome. Love the scorecards and statistical reviews available. Have not come across any situations you can't accurately score. Only "problem" I've come across is that the icon for switch hitting batters doesn't change based on the arm the pitcher throws with. If you're into scoring games I think you would love this app. Can't imagine the work that went into creating it but if you can create a version for Windows, I would love it.
Your own private At-Bat App As others have said, there's a definite learning curve, so I'd score a few practice games before doing a live game. But after that, you can generate play by play information in real time, very similar to that the MLB At-Bat app produces, complete with pitch tracking -- and it's all archived for posterity. Well, sort of, and that's actually why I only gave the app 4 stars. The scorecard is the only thing it generates in PDF and is *very* basic. While it does include a scatter chart for every pitcher (which is nice), there's no game summary, and there's no box score, all of which are pretty standard, even on paper scorecards. What's more disturbing is the way other game summary information is archived. If (or maybe when) the iScore system ever goes away, the only information you're going to have for posterity is that simple PDF scorecard which can, of course, be printed to paper. Everything else is proprietary data, available only in the app. It can't be preserved for posterity, like my father's 60 year old scorebooks. That's sad and is something SI should look into fixing. Baseball is, after all, a game driven by history expressed through statistics.
If you're perfect, it's perfect The idea is great. The features are great. Yes, there is a learning curve, but the complexity doesn't bother me. The problem is if you make a mistake and don't catch that mistake until later in the game there is no good way to get thing back on track. Yes you can edit post game but the editing is very limited. This would work great for more advanced ball where things are.stable but for teams of 8 year Olds, changes happen mid game that if you don't record properly will.mess you up.
Would be 4 stars if... Just got word after buying app that scoring will be free but viewing play by play will cost each follower 4 bucks a month. Bummer...will need to continue the search for a solid app that keeps parents/fans connected.
