Balls vs Stones

The problem with cricket counters, is the feeling that arrives when you've judged a close lbw, explained to the bowler that it was going down leg, signalled 2 leg byes, picked the bowler's cap up off the floor and then justified your decision to the keeper, that you might have transferred a stone, but then again you might not. You try to think back through the over, but was there a wide or a no ball? And the square leg umpire isn't looking, and probably isn't even counting.


Balls has a timer which shows you how long it has been since you last recorded a delivery, and prevents you recording another until sufficient time has passed.

It also:

- Tracks wides and no balls.
- Keeps track of the number of overs you have umpired.
- Has a '3D touch' mode to so you can leave the phone unlocked, in your pocket, with the app running, safe in the knowledge that no deliveries will be accidentally recorded.
- Shows how many balls remain.
- Has an undo feature.

The pro version (with in app purchase):

- Records full detail on what has been bowled.
- Keeps track of the team score and wickets.
- Shows how many runs were scored and balls were bowled off the current over.
- Allows you to set different length timers for boundaries and wickets.

And it's (mostly) free. So get Balls, better than stones.

This app can work really well for umpires and scores, meaning the timer to record a delivery by a bowler is too long, remove the timer feature (20 secs) keep in mind a spinner can be ready after a dot ball in 10 seconds or less in some cases.

Developer Response ,

Apologies for taking over a year to come back to you! (I'm busy with another project), thanks for using the app and thanks for the feedback. There is an option under settings to disable or modify the length of the timer. You can also choose whether or not to disable the buttons. Hope this helps and again apologies for not keeping a closer eye on reviews.
