Snooker Scorer

Love Snooker? Hate Maths? Then Snooker Scorer is for you!

Snooker Scorer will keep track of a game of Snooker for you, telling you score difference, current break and points remaining.

Note that this is NOT A GAME of Snooker, it is a UTILITY to help you keep track of the score of a game of Snooker.

It’s simple to use; simply tap the ball that has been potted and the score is automatically added. Because Snooker Scorer knows the rules of Snooker, it won’t allow you to pot the wrong ball.

There are now some video tutorials available on YouTube!

About

If someone misses a ball, tap the ‘swap players’ icon at the bottom of the screen to end the current break.

If there is a foul, hold the foul icon (the white ball with a red ‘no entry’ sign over it) and tap the ball potted. Scorer will swap players and give the opponent the foul points.

Free ball situations can be indicated by tapping the action icon at the bottom of the screen and then tapping ‘free ball’.

Player names can be edited in the preferences screen (tap the ‘cog’ icon in the bottom right of the screen).

Scores and player names are saved and restored automatically when you quit the Application.

Now with undo! If you’ve made a mistake just tap the ‘undo’ icon in the bottom left of the toolbar to undo the last change. The last 16 changes will be remembered.

The information text will cycle between various score information such as: score difference, remaining points, current break, maximum possible break, number of remaining red balls.

You can also remove a red ball from the table by tapping the action item at the bottom of the screen and then tapping ‘remove red ball’. This is for rare situations when two red balls are potted at the same time, or a red ball is potted at the same time as a colour ball. In those situations the red does not contribute to the score but will not be replaced.
