You are correct, but I have not investigated any of those yet. I'll have to look into it. Am using the Apple Xcode platform currently.

I agree with the bolded -- you DO need to look into it. Coding apps for a single platform is like coding websites to be viewable only with a certain browser. "This site can only be viewed with Apple Safari." R-i-g-h-t.

P.S.: after Apple bought Beats, did you hear about the new feature they announced for the Beats headphones? It's called treble.

Used my Straight Pool Deluxe App in a 125 point game with a fellow league member, Hank, yesterday. I showed him the basics of how to run the scoring and we were off. Works well but differs from Billiards Buddy that you don't have to wait until rack is over to "post" your score..it is real time and accumulates with each ball pocketed. Also displays number of balls you or your opponent is behind in the game (nice feature). I made a scoring error which was very easy to back out and correct. Hank was running short on time and we cut the game short at 100 balls (easy to do as has button just for that function). Keeps more game and player stats then any statistics guru might want.

One of the features I like best is the shot and game timer. In league we have a few extremely slow players and now I will be able to show them how slow they actually play (with the thought speeding their play up).

Has link to World Standardized rules which is great.

I also have an IPhone, but think the App is more suited for an Ipad bigger screen.

I am impressed with the App and will use it for all of my games going forward as it will keep a history of BPI, high runs, avg shot time, etc.

Hi Dennis, thanks for the feedback, glad you like the app. A couple of notes on some features: there are two scoring modes, rack mode and "real time" mode, so you can switch between them by tapping just below the score. Also, if you tap the Points Behind, it will switch to Points Remaining.

Let me know if you find any issues or think of features that would make the app more useful. Also, would really appreciate a review in App Store .

Thanks,
Chris

Recently purchased the app. 14.1 isn't popular around my neck of the woods, but a team mate and I have recently started playing. Still learning the rules and think this app will make things a little easier. We'll be using tonight for the first time.

App - 06-03-2014, 01:02 PM

I purchased the app yesterday and used it last night.

has a ton of cool features. not sure that i was scoring exactly right. did not differentiate between fouls, scratches, intentional fouls early on. Tons of stats. love the timer.

A couple of times when my opponent did not hit miss, i got up there and credited my balls to him. need to look where the green light is,

looking forward to using it going forward.

Hi Dennis, just fyi, you don't have to differentiate between foul types if you don't want to, it just tracks separately for stats geekery. One feature I want to add eventually is an option to just track all that as "fouls", without the scratch and intentional foul choices, for those who prefer the "standard" scoring and are not as into stat details

Thanks for giving the app a try.

-Chris

PS Sure would appreciate app store reviews from any happy users.

The more info, the better, i think.

I only used it one night so far, but intend to keep it up. have already talked about it to several in our league. once i get more use under my belt will do a review in the app store.

Love the app. How would I enter a "serious foul" into score. Let's say my opponent got stuck in the stack and instead of using a legal shot, used the ferrule on his cue to move the cue ball. That is a serious foul and -15 points and he has to re-break.

Hmmm...that seems to fall under "6.16 Unsportsmanlike Conduct" in the rules...I have not added that feature to the app. I figured it was rare enough that it didn't need to be in the initial release However, I would like the app to be 100% rule-compliant, so will add this to the list of features to implement. Does this come up occasionally in league play?

Thanks for the feedback.

Comes up on rare occasion. I have had it happen to me twice in last 10 or so years. I could see that when an "unsportsmanlike conduct" foul occurs app would take you to a decision tree with points penalty and re-break or not. Serious fouls can be disposition with various degrees of penalties.

I bought the APP after reading the postings earlier this week. Although I mostly play the Ghost at home, this time we kept real score so even for practice, the game became more difficult. I usually gave myself some leeway on safeties or fouls or scratches but not now.

Thanks for creating this.

I was trying to check player stats and the only player stats it will let me see are mine. It looks like it is supposed to allow me to check the stats on another player, but I cannot change it. Is there a trick to it?
