    I have used SCOREKEEPER to score/track baseball games on my Palm. Is there a similar baseball scorekeeping app for the iPhone?

    SportsTap.mobi is great, as well, but I believe the OP was looking for a way to keep scores.

    Baseball scorekeeping app for iPhone

    I too want software for my iPhone to score my son's games. I sent off notes to seven baseball scorekeeping software companies asking when they would have a product for iPhone. If anyone reading this is so inclined maybe you can do the same. If we can show the interest in a baseball scorekeeping software for iPhone then someone will write it.

    Here is my note and the seven companies I sent it to:

    Hello,

    When do you expect to have baseball scorekeeping software for the iPhone?

    Thank you,

    Gordon

    Ditto

    I used to scoregames with scorepad on my old Palm - worked great till my 2 year old daughter dunked my lifedrive in a glass of water...

    Sent the following to the same list of companies:

    "I previously enjoyed scoring baseball games on my Palm device... Times change and so has my PDA. I am now looking for a scorekeeping system for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Is your company actively developing one?
    Thanks!


    Lets hope to see one soon...

    What a lost art; I can remember keeping score at all those Dodger games at Chavez Ravine growing up. Brought me a bit closer to the game and more in touch with the players and their abilities. Baseball scorekeeping; truly a lost art... :cool:

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

    I am the team mom for my son's peewee team and I have just spent hours trying to find an app for my ipod touch that would help me. I would love to get my hands on this app that yodaddy is working on. I can't believe there isn't one out there already! Please let me know when it will be available.
    Thanks!

    Iphone Baseball Scoring

    Please hurry on that APP Little League season starts tomorrow!!!!

    Also you should think about making an application for the computer so that you can easily transfer data back and forth!

    Thanks so much!

    I've been a Statsbook users for years and would love to see something that integrated with that. Or at least exported files that could emailed and them imported into Statsbook.

    On a side note Baseball Hitting Tracker was released yesterday. Not really a scorekeeping application, but it is a good start and with work by the developer could be developed into one. It isn't bad for $2.

    Yeah, that one looks very good. I bought Baseball Hitting Tracker, but it was really confusing to use.

    Interesting...

    The iScore app is interesting but is fairly basic compared to what i am rolling out the second week of may.

    Couple of things that we will have...

    1. Integration with Web Site for report generation
    a. includes game archiving and stat tracking for teams with future expansion to leagues and tournaments.
    2. Full blown scorekeeping capability...no shortcuts
    a. just about every situation
    b. pitch location chart
    c. spray chart
    3. Little League (not endorsed) pitch count rules incorporated into application as an option.
    a. custom pitch count capability
    4. Actual scorekeeper step by step method vs. parent in the stands basic stats.

    I'm very excited about this application and am looking forward to it's launch the second week of May...

    ...here's hoping the old adage it always takes longer and always costs more does not apply....

    Go Yard!

    I tried both of the other apps, and found iScore to be the easiest to enter data by far. It was very easy to score the game as it went on. There are a few things that can use improvements on the output after the game, but I just got the latest update today that is a HUGE improvement, and they say on their forum that they are working on several more improvements that look very nice.

    The Pointstreak one looks pretty, but is quite a bit more money, and I found it harder to use.

    I'm going to hang on to all three, but for now, will likely be using iScore for scoring my games.

    I tried iScore and didn't like it - it takes so long to enter a play. The next play is over and I'm still entering the previous play.

    I would not recommend it.

    Very surprised to hear you say that. I actually found quite the opposite to be true. It took me a few plays to get used to (and I watched their video), but I am now scoring games much faster than I could with the other programs, and capturing more information as well. I'd be curious to hear other's experiences, but I have been VERY happy with the input.

    Which one do you use pMad? I have all three, and this one was definitely the best IMO.

    Look at the reviews -

    4 - *****
    0 - ****
    4 - ***
    2 - **
    0 - *

    If you read the ***** reviews, they appear to be "company issued" reviews.

    I find this outfit to be very questionable.

    Have of the reviews talk about the think not even running properly.

    It ran for me, but I didn't like the time consuming interface.

    I'm not using any currently.
    I'm waiting for the new one coming out next month.
