@Jude: I'm glad you were able to find the in-app purchase! As for your question, it is not possible for me to make the ads pool related. I give my ad providers information about my product, and theoretically they tailor the ads somewhat, but in practice I don't think it comes to anything.

@poolmouse and Steve and Jude: Twitter and facebook support are coming in version 2.0! I've been wanting to do that for a long time.

@poolmouse: Thank you for your offer, but I wouldn't feel right taking your money not knowing how long it will take me to finish the work. I have a real job and a baby, so my time is limited.

And to everyone waiting for an iPad version, yes I do plan on doing it. My plan is to release version 2.0 for iPhone first, and then start on the iPad version. (I know people would like iPad right away, but I have to break work into chunks, or nothing will ever get released). Also, the iPad version will require substantial redesign to be done properly. For example, when you use it on iPad now in 2x mode, the score pickers size gets scaled up. But on a normal iPad app, those will be small, the same size as on an iPhone (or when using 1x mode on iPad). I haven't decided how to deal with that problem yet.

Also, the reason there is no landscape mode yet is because on the iPhone there is not enough space. I spent substantial time trying to squeeze everything in like that when I first designed the app, but had to abandon it. However, there is more space on the iPad, and landscape mode is required for all apps on iPad anyways. So it will be there in the iPad version.

Finally, to everyone who likes the Billiards Buddy, please rate it in the app store and leave reviews! Higher ratings move the app closer to the top helping more people find it.

How about a donation drive on AZBilliards? What if we can get enough $1, $5, $10, etc., donations and a goal of $1,000 and if/when we reach the goal, you decide if it's worth the time/effort to take a few days off of work to finish v2.0?

If you decide not to, everyone gets their money back...if you decide to, I'm sure those of us with iPad HD devices would be willing to help you test.

Think of all the roses and diapers $1,000 can buy! LOL

Do i have to uninstall my free version to get the ad free version to work ?

which i could swear i paid for the real version when the app was first launched and maybe an update knocked it out


i used the app today to score one of the matches from the Maryland 14.1 Championships and the app worked flawlessly !

I purchased the free version first, then purchased the ad-free upgrade and it installed right over the previous version without any problems.

I would definitely be interested in doing something like that. I took a look at kickstarter.com, which is setup to do exactly what you are saying. If people in this thread showed enough interest I would be willing to setup a page there. From what I understand, potential donors would signup and pledge on the site, and their accounts wouldn't be charged until the project was fully funded.

The site requires that I offer rewards for different levels of donation. Two that come to mind are a credits page for smaller donors and a splash screen for one or at most two very large donors. I'm not sure whether I could give free copies of the app away or not, based on Apple's app store rules. If anyone has any ideas for other rewards I would be interested in hearing them.

Steve, the ads are removed via an in-app purchase. You can't make in-app purchases on iTunes. But, if you did upgrade before, all you have to do is click the upgrade button in the app and enter your password. If you did in fact upgrade before Apple will remember and tell you that you already purchased the upgrade. You won't be charged again. Of course, you have to use the same Apple ID that you used when you purchased (most people only have one Apple ID, so this probably shouldn't be a problem).

Let me know if you have any trouble with this.
-Tim

PS, you may be correct that an upgrade wiped out your upgrade. That did actually happen at one point. Unfortunately at the time I did not realize what had happened, or I would have added a notice in the app. However, the upgrade is not actually gone, you just have to follow the steps I mentioned above to get the app to realize that you paid.

For starters we can all do our part by stopping in the app store on iTunes and hit the share button after searching Billiards Buddy and tag it over to our Facebook accounts to spread the word about this great app. I just discovered this Over the weekend and did my part.

We can also take the time to write a review on iTunes that should also help. I intend on doing tat this evening.

Fasteddief, you can use the big plus button to increase the score, or the little minus button to decrease it. Hit 'Miss' to switch to the other player. You cannot decrease the score further after changing players, because the game tracks innings and not just points. If you made a mistake, you should use the undo button (Hit the little (i) button between the player names).

Hope this helps, let me know if you have more specific questions.

Thanks Steve. I just setup a new facebook page for Billiards Buddy. It is completely blank at the moment other than the profile pic (Version 2.0's new icon!), but I will add to it as I have time.

And as Steve said, it is very helpful to me to have people rate the app and leave reviews. Positive reviews are a big motivator.

I don't think I've ever been to a pool hall that didn't have either the score counters on the table, or a hand-held score keeper that they give you at the counter when you get the balls. The phone app is cool, but do you want some guy messing with your phone? Or, do you now have to keep score for both people and then get into an argument about how you didn't score his runs correctly?

Just wondering...
