Truly a GOOD baseball stat program but could be greater! Have been enjoying the features that are offered. I am a HEAVY user of GC! Request the following if possible. 1) have a customer service number to call for questions because email questions hard to explain easily on email., 2) update the training manual to reflect updated app!, 3) have expanded training and clear instructions and steps on setting up groups n tournaments. I find these two processes very vague n annoying when setting up groups n then rosters not attaching correctly to groups. 4) please include the ability to make corrections to plays easier. It is a some what a very confusing method to make corrections to the stats during a game. 5) internal sort option of hard coded sort by jersey number needs to be included while adding a new player to the roster after initial roster setup. What is somewhat concerning is that the new player with a low jersey number may be at the bottom of the roster n does not get automatically sorted in order by jersey number. Hence the 4 stars rating. Drop from 5 Star rating. Change n rating will def increase once I see that changes have been made! These recommendations will only make GC a more complete n comprehensive scorekeepers dream!
I have been using this app for 5 years and it has really been good. There was a recent update on which it does not allow you to move to the next player while in the lineup to give that player a position. Instead you need to click the player then back out and choose the next player and select his position. There might’ve been some people that didn’t like the option but maybe there could be something in the settings to be able to choose which one you prefer. Also the ability to change a player from P to 1B, if the player originally playing 1B and original pitcher swap positions it used to do it for you automatically but now you need to change each individual player. It’s a lot more convenient especially when you need to make a few changes so you don’t miss anything. Other than that it’s a great app and I have spoken to some reps at conventions and they are always looking to get better.
I would rate this app 4.5 stars if I could. I love the concept, as well as the ease of using the app and having all the stats in one place; however, the app doesn’t have a few key components that would make the app amazing. It is difficult to change a mistake if you don’t catch it right away, and I wish you could view which players subbed for who in the regular viewing as opposed to only in the scorebook view (or gave the option to remove “burned” players from the lineup), but my main problems with the app come from scorekeeping high school and adult slow pitch. I wish the app had a slow pitch option with an automatic rover/4th outfielder setting, a time limit, home run limit, and 1-1 automatic count (so it doesn’t affect pitch count). You can change all these once you’re scoring, but it’s tedious for tournaments when you have to change the settings every game.
It’s a terrific app. Easy to score games, and the detailed stats are pretty good. Seemed pretty easy for this beginner to get started with right away. There are a few things that would make it even better: 1) Many youth leagues have “mercy”, or run limit rules. It would be great if the app had a place to enter that limit in the team profile, and used that profile data to offer to end the inning when the limit is reached. 2) Many youth leagues allow pitchers and other players to be substituted out without losing their place in the lineup. It would be great if the app had a toggle for that in the team profile, and if toggled, automatically leaves players in the lineup when they are subbed. This will prevent some errors I have had in the past where I forgot to go back and put the player back in the lineup after I sub them out. 3) Many youth leagues have time limit rules for starting a new inning and ending the game. It would be great if there were a way to enter those limits in the team profile, and then the app could provide warnings when these limits are approaching or reached (maybe using the first pitch as a starting point if the scorekeeper doesn’t set it). 4) it would be pretty entertaining if the app could calculate a hypothetical “optimal” lineup based on past games. Or perhaps just a lineup based on sabermetrics :).
I thoroughly enjoy using this app. Extremely easy to use, love the ability to “undo” when needed (especially needed when your a mom and you’re still responsible for your other kids during a game). Love that parents and other family members/friends can “watch” live when they can’t be there. There are just a few items that I would like to see enhanced. 1. I would like to have a place to enter the time limit for a game and have an official start time with a count down clock. While this would be nice in the profile for specific seasons, I think there needs to be an option to change it per game as tournaments often have varying rules. 2. I would like to see an option to add a run limit. In youth sports we often have a run limit per inning. This would be more helpful than a manual override to end the inning. As with the time limit, I would like to see it in the profile to set it for a season, but with the ability to override per game in case a tournament has a different set of rules. 3. I would like to be able to set a tournament schedule so it groups all tournament games together and allows for tournament stats as a sub set of stats to a team and player’s overall stats.
