Add me to the list of happy customers. The automatic logging of your high run, average, and inning-by-inning results is very cool. I especially like the ability to email the game summary.

It is great not having to keep track of your runs during a game. It's also humbling to realize just how many innings it takes me to get through a game, especially after following the world championships last week

Billiards Buddy is well worth the money.

Me too. I use it all the time whether playing a game with someone or just tracking my high run progress.

I've introduced to to others and they have asked if it will be offered on Android devices. Will other devices be supported?

Speaking of which our very own Gene Mann (baygene) used the app to score a few games at the worlds.

I wonder if he saved the results and if he could share them with us so we can see how we stack up against some tough competition !

At least if he can share how the app held up in some serious competition !

What do ya say Gene?

Thank you! - 08-09-2012, 07:53 AM

Thank you for all the kind words in this thread everyone! I haven't been on the forums much lately, but today I noticed a spike in sales. It was actually my biggest day ever (and just enough to buy lunch). I figured there must be a reason, and sure enough, a lot of activity here. That kind of thing makes my day.

For those asking if I will be supporting Android, the answer is no, unfortunately. I'm just a hobby programmer, and I don't have the time to delve into Android at the moment.

Just so everyone knows, I have slowly started working on version 2.0. It will be a pretty big update. But it will be a while yet.

Thanks again,
-Tim

Awesome App - 08-09-2012, 09:04 AM

It is an awesome app. We just started a 14.1 league and I have been showing it to guys. The gentleman I practiced with yesterday absolutely loved it. A lot easier than using counters or paper. I did just upgrade a couple of days ago, and it seems the buttons you touch for safe, miss, and foul have shifted to the left so they overlap numbers on the left, and only goes to the middle when the right hand person is up. Other than that I would say it does everything anyone would ask of it.

Thanks.

Would like it on my Android phone though. You could put up a bid on elance and see what it would cost to have it converted over to Android. Just an idea.

I had one other person mention that, but I think it went away for him when he killed and restarted the app (double tap home, hold the icon until it bounces, hit the "X", then restart). Are you using an iPhone or iPad (he was using an iPad). I haven't been able to reproduce that problem on either device.

If I were making enough money from this to justify paying another person to do it, I would invest the time myself. The app has made just enough money for the last year and a half to cover the fees Apple takes for hosting it. 2.0 will include support for more games, and I'm hoping that it will expand the possible user base enough that it will make a little bit more.

I should have thought to post something sooner. I use my iPad for scoring quite a bit. In my opinion, it's the ideal device for such a task. I like your app but last I checked, it was meant for the iPhone and I kinda hate using apps on my iPad that are intended for the iPhone. Assuming this hasn't changed, would you consider building an iPad-specific app too?

The reason why I ask has to do with things like the font size of the total score. It'd be great if someone could read it from across the room. As well, would it be possible to have a variety of "skins" so we could select the font color and background color? I've been using this app http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/unive...489424158?mt=8for general scorekeeping simply because it's easy to read. If your app looked like this on an iPad, I'd use your app all the time.

Last, I'll pay $5 for ANY pool app to not have to see ads but if you're going to have ads, can you at least have them be pool-specific? As a display tool, it would terrify me to think I don't have control over what might pop-up on the screen. At least give me the option to give you $5 and not see ads.

I think you're doing great work and I really hope you continue offering pool players useful apps. Especially for 14.1, scorekeeping can often get very confusing and to be able to have it all simplified AND recorded is amazing.

Oh wait, there is an in-app purchase available to rid myself of ads. Thank you, I just bought it.

With that said, I would still really appreciate an iPad version in landscape mode. As well, the names and total score should be in a larger font and we should have options for background/font color so that it gives the appearance of a true scoreboard.

Honestly, you do this and I cannot imagine why anyone who plays 14.1 and owns an iPad would not use your product all the time. To have a professional display on-hand would be sooooooo useful. No longer will people walk up and ask, "Who's winning" or "What's the run?". They could just look at the iPad and know everything.

Dude, this is an AWESOME app...I've been using it since you first released it. Curious though, why not charge another dollar or three? I don't think anyone would mind. I mean, I use it ALL THE TIME!

PS, I can Paypal you $10 if that would help accelerate release of new version that supports iPad HD and horizontal orientation.

PS#2, If it isn't too late, how about a link to SHARE the games to your FaceBook or Twitter accounts?

Just like the bank shot calculater, I will be waiting for these pool apps to be released in an Android version. I may just make my own for that matter because it doesn't look like anyone wants to bother with us droid folk, lol.

I think incorporating Facebook accounts could be a great idea for promotion of the product too. I mean, what better way to encourage people to buy the app than to find your opponent on Facebook, track all statistics for the game and then send your opponent the results. Of course, to view the results, you'd have to own the app.
