Instructions for the use of Squash Scorer Plus – Preferences

The preferences screen is where you can set the preferences for how the app behaves. Also you can set default values for eMail and Twitter addresses.


When “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.

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.

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.

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 “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.

The Export and Import buttons allow you to backup, restore or simply share the matches you have scored. More detail can be found in the Export and Import Posts.

You can also access the Edit Players screen from here.

You may swipe to the right to navigate back to the Match Info screen 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.
