The description of Pickleball Scorer
Do you play Pickleball and want some help in keeping score?
Pickleball Scorer is a wearable (android watch) app for keeping score in a Pickleball game.
The first question the app displays is "Who serves?" Just touch "You" (if you are serving first) or "Opponent" (if your opponent is serving first). The device will vibrate, and display the starting score and who’s serving.
Once a rally is completed, just touch "You" or "Opponent" to indicate who won the rally (or swipe up or swipe down, respectively). The device vibrates & displays the score. The score is displayed just as a server would declare it before each serve. The app handles the rest!
The app displays where the next serve is coming from (if you need this reminder) by positioning a small paddle and ball icon on the display of the pickleball court.
If you touch the wrong button for who won the last rally, or who serves, you can back out the last entry and re-enter. Just hit the red curved back arrow.
Touch the pickleball info "i" icon to momentarily display the time of day. Long touch the pickleball info "i" icon to momentarily display three successive screens: 1. your wins and losses since starting the app; 2. the number of “my faults”, the total faults for your team, and the percentage of "my faults"; and 3. the time the app has been running (h:mm:ss) and the battery charge percent for your watch.
To immediately start a new game and display "Who serves?", long touch the score.
Touch the pickleball my fault "mf" icon to record that the opponents won the rally, but that the fault was your fault, not your partner’s. Touch the “mf” icon at the “Who serves?” question to reset the “my faults” count and the total faults count to zero.
At the end of the game, the app will momentarily display the winning score and side, and then it will ask for who serves the next game. This is a good time to long touch the pickleball info "i" icon to display "my faults" and total faults for your side, and more.
Games can be played to 11, 9, 7, 15 or 21 points (in these case you must win by 2). Rally scoring to 15 or 21 is also available. Above the score display (to the right) is a Pickleball paddle icon with the number 11 on it. Touch it to change it to 9. Touch it repeatedly to change it to 7, 15, or 21, or rally scoring to 15 or 21.
The Pickleball Scorer app is developed as a hobby by a novice apps developer and pickleball player. To display the version of the app, long touch "You". Send questions or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rats, gotta go. Playing Pickleball....
