I've had the app for a while but hadn't used it. I went ahead and upgraded to Pro today and gave it it's first workout tonight. It works fine! Unfortunately, for the first time since I went on Disability last February, my back says "NO!" Hoping the rainy weather has something to do with it, that, and not taking my optional dose of pain meds

Just wondering...
It's easy to use and gives you a complete summary of your game. Like AccuStats. Hopefully soon you'll be able to send the result to Facebook/Twitter. Even if we had beads I would still use this, since stats do matter to me.

Tim/arsenius, we've had some email about the app several months ago...

Kickstarter is great (my girlfriend raised almost $14,000 with it to finance her education in Sweden this winter), but keep in mind that between Kickstarter itself and Amazon (which you must use to fulfill the pledges), you give up almost 10%! that's a lot of money.

on the other hand, Kickstarter will expose you to a lot of people who won't find it on azbilliards. i have now 5 friends who've used Kickstarter to fund projects, and all of them have had a least a little money from people who literally just shop around on Kickstarter for projects to fund (something which the structure of the site encourages).

all that said, you might think of doing some fundraising here where we're all enthusiasts and many of us have used your product, and then some on Kickstarter with the associated fees (not to mention the overhead of having to produce a video and all of the rewards Kickstarter requires).

either way, good luck!

Ok I used it for several hours over the weekend and I really liked it. It's very easy to use and I really liked the overall feel of the app. Great job, I would happily pay for this app.

v 2.0 is coming along... - 10-18-2012, 11:21 AM

Hi All,

First, sorry I haven't been back to this thread in a while. My family came to visit for a few weeks and I've just been generally busy. But, thanks everyone for their kind remarks while I was gone.

Wigglybridge, that's amazing about your girlfriend's success, and very encouraging. I'll have to take another look at the kickstarter process.

Next, I've been putting in a good amount of time on version 2.0 lately. I have gotten a lot of code cleaned up, which will make future updates easier. And I have started designing the iPad version, even though I said I wouldn't until I got all the features I want for 2.0 added to the iPhone version. It's something I can do at the computer when I'm not able to actually program.

Here is a screenshot (actually a mockup, no iPad code has been written yet) of the 14.1 counter for iPad. It isn't nearly finished yet, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

If anyone has thoughts on what to do with the dead space on the left and right, please speak up. Right now I'm planning on adding the stats that are displayed in the game summary. I will also add a shot clock over there (iPad only due to screen space) as a pro feature.

You can see that "race to" and the player names have buttons now. They allow the players or race length to be changed mid game, which has been a common request.

The items in the circular "i" button will be moved to the top rail. The little button in the top left is what they will look like when done. History will still be there, but I didn't add any tabs to the mockup yet.

Finally, if you have facebook please "like" billiardsbuddy. Not too many people have done so yet.

Here's the mockup:

I will anxiously await the Ipad version. The present Iphone version works great on my Ipad though.

I like the idea of a shot clock added.

3cushion counter question - 10-28-2012, 03:41 PM

how do a set up matches with handicaps? for example, i play 30 points, my opponent plays 25. In 3C we typically don't put the beads on the wire. I can set up a race to 30, my friend will start out with 5 (on the wire), but to keep track of my opponent I have to see how many beads he has on the wire + the handicap to get to thebilliardsbudy total. rather annoying and inneficient.

PS: other than this i love the App.

@Hector, are you using the handicap feature when you start a new match? It is 'beads on the wire' style. Are you saying you would rather have no beads on the wire, and have two "race to" indicators, one for each player, and have each player play to different scores?

Unfortunately, I probably will not change the handicapping style or add options for multiple kinds. It takes a lot of time to add those types of features. But I may be able to add an indicator for the handicaps on the main screen for each player, at least on the iPad where there is more space.

I'd be happy to test if you wanna PM me a Redemption Code for v2.0 beta.

I have a match with 14-1StraightMan this Saturday, so we can give it a run for its money.

Probably won't have it ready for this weekend, but I will need beta testers soon. Anyone who's interested, please send me your UDID email it to me at billiardsbuddy@gmail.com and I will get your phone setup for beta testing. (Sending me your UDID has the added benefit of allowing you to use pre-release versions of iOS, if you are into beta testing for apple.)

You can use this app to determine the UDID and send it via email from within the app.

Also, I ask that anyone interested in beta testing be patient with the process of getting their phone setup. It is a notoriously error prone process due to the protections apple has in place.

I just sent my UDID via the app you recommended.

So today I had a 14.1 match, so we used BilliardsBuddy. For some reason the score got mangled both times we tried it. We split the first rack, 7 pints each, but for some reason when we started the second rack, the score showed 0-0. We gave up and went with paper & pencil.

Looking forward to testing v2...and hoping the developer charges something for it if only to encourage time/effort spent on the app.

Poolmouse, I got your UDID the other day. Thank you!

I'm not sure what to tell you on the bug though. I just tested a new game briefly, with "Safe, 7 Points, 7 Points" and it worked fine. Could you email me more information about it? Maybe include a screenshot of the history screen for the games that got screwed up, so that I can duplicate how you did it. Have you had any other problems with it?
