Utterly unforgiving

Could be such a good app. The idea is great but things go wrong so easily. And when they do, you're stuffed. Names come into your team randomly, and once the game starts you can't change them. If you think you've clicked the 'go back' button there's no confirmation so you don't know if you've gone back or not. The custom games can't be saved. If you accidentally click cancel you lose everything in an instant - again, no confirm option. I could go on..... So use the app but prepare to go grey/bald/demented in the process.

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.



Good app, but we should be able to remove/delete players. When you select new custom match, and add teams, all previous clubs players are there.
