Instructions for the use of Squash Scorer – Preferences Screen

The preferences screen is where you can choose the type of game you’ll be scoring.

device-2013-04-28-163646When “Enable Negative Scores for Handicap” is selected, you will be able to use the adjustment controls on the homescreen to adjust scores to be negative. You might do this before the game starts and is one way the scorer supports handicaps.

When “Disable Screen Saver in Scorer” is selected, the device will no longer periodically initiate the screen saver lock screen or dimming when the application is on the scorer screen with no input from you. The application will still allow the screen saver/lock screen to happen on other screens, however.

When “Show Scoreboard in Scorer” is selected, the application will show the scoreboard in the scorer screen.

When “Vibration Feedback” is selected, the device will vibrate once when “Rally Won” is pressed and twice when “Hand Out” is pressed. This gives non-visual confirmation of the scoring action.

device-2013-04-28-163713When “Traditional Scoring” is disabled, the method of scoring becomes a simplified system where you need only to tap on the player who won the rally and the app will determine whether a handout has occurred or not and score the rally accordingly.device-2013-04-28-163618When “Use Timers” is selected a popup window appears and lets you select the timer times for the warmup, between games and injuries. You can also select whether you want an audible alarm which will happen at the half way point of the warmup, end of warmup, 15 second warning of the between game time and end of the between game time. A match duration option shows a permanent timer on the scorer screen.

You can select different times if you wish and they will be remembered. You can also use the defaults button to reset the defaults shown above. Times are in seconds.

When “Use Location when Sharing” any share messages will also include the location where the post, email or tweet came from. The location is city and suburb. When the device cannot get a fix on the location it will display “an unknown location” until such time as a location fix has been made.

The increase font size option increases the size of the font and is set on by default. If you find the text is not fitting well on your screen then try disabling this option.

The Edit Players option allows you to rename players. You can only rename a player who is not currently being scored. More information can be found in the Edit Players post.

The “Twitter Account to tweet results to” field is the name of a Twitter account that will have the tweet directed to in addition to the Twitter account “squashscorer”. For the example above this means that the Twitter message will contain an @mySquashClub. You may follow the Twitter account ”squashscorer” on Twitter to see all results that have been posted.

The “Mail Recipient” field is the mail address that will be automatically included in the “send to” field of the mail message. You may add more recipients of course.

You may swipe to the right to navigate back to the homescreen from here as well as using the buttons provided at the bottom of the screen and use the menu to bring up further navigation options.
