Great app

This is a great app! I use it loads and it’s really useful and fun. Perfect for scoring any type of match, whether it’s pairs or a seniors game. I do have a small problem though: when you finish the match, you can only see the scorecard, and everything else disappears. It would be nice if next to it you could look at the ball by ball and the wagon wheel.

But overall a great app and I recommend it.👍

Developer Response ,

Good Morning,

Thank you for the review, whilst the ball by ball and the wagon wheel data isn't viewable on PCS once the game has finished, it is now available on our P-C Live app and also the scorecard on the main play-cricket website (one of our new features for the upcoming season).

Kind Regards,

Takes quite a few matches to feel ‘at home’

We’ve phased ourselves into scoring on the app over the last season and a half and we’re now training new scorers up. We don’t have match WiFi but we don’t need it, the app works well without and the scorecard isn’t live.
The thing that trips newish scorers up is when the batter or bowler entered is the wrong player and the app doesn’t want you to change them! In the calm of a living room it’s easy to do the necessary swaps, in the heat of the match it’s very hard to think clearly.
As an experienced scorer I feel pretty secure now but there are things I try to put in place to avoid most problems. As we don’t have WiFi in the Scorebox I download the match at home before and add our players. I then log out of the app. When I am at the ground I stay logged out and find the downloaded match through the ‘other matches’ button. I then continue the match set up with the opposition players and get on with the scoring. Once the match is finished I ‘end match’ then, when back home, I log in again and ‘Finalise’.

When the match is in progress, I make notes of each visiting player who’s bowling/ batting so I know who’s who for the scorecard. The big thing is watching for everything on the pitch and, I feel, it’s this skill that needs to be acquired by new scorers as well as having the app knowhow.

Overall I really like the app and it saves lots of time post-match on play-cricket!

Filled with errors and crashes regularly

The single most frustrating app I’ve ever used.

1. Designed for tablet, but heavily relies on 4g or WiFi, which some clubs don’t offer.

Never beta tested or given real world use in my view. Designed nowhere near a cricket match.

2. Too many sub menu screens with keyboard overlaying it constantly. Have to go back between team sheet and entry pages to double check or confirm who has been added. Needs a press and hold function to make any change you like. Or a slide function on the front page to change order or batting etc

3. No saved entry: step away, want to see the stats for a previous bowler/batsman or lose WiFi and everything is lost back to last uploaded point or a crash occurs and everything lost.

4. No auto save. No one enjoys losing an afternoons diligence for a tech issue to completely erase your efforts.

5. No truly manual override: any discrepancy say in runs total, extras etc will crash program.

6. Constant confirmation of action

7. Doesn’t understand the game. Catches ask for bowler first which is unconventional, doesn’t recognise a stumping can only be performed by the wk.

8. So slow to enter information.

9. Try to continue scoring, say switch device or just reopen your score sheet and it will not do it, only resolution is to clear the entire game and start from scratch.

Absolutely infuriating, could be brilliant, but built on the cheap by people with nil understanding of users needs in a game situation.
