Count Keeper - Baseball and Softball score and count tracker
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Now 50% off! Get out and play ball this summer!
Need to keep track of the score and the count at baseball and softball games? Count Keeper does the trick. A much fancier version of the counter the umpire keeps in his hand during the game, Count Keeper allows you to track balls, strikes and outs as well as the current score.
Four custom themes are included: Fenway Park's Green Monster, Wrigley Field's scoreboard, and for the Star Trek fan, there's even an LCARS theme. The Fenway theme includes a simplified version that only counts score and outs for when you don't need to track the full count.
Check the screenshots to see the themes in action.
● Track as much or as little of the scoreboard information as you want.
● Highly stylized themes simulate real-world scoreboards
● Star Trek fans rejoice! There's an LCARS theme, complete with LCARS sounds.
● Button presses use optional sound
● "Shake" to go to the next batter (reset balls and strikes to zero)
Count Keeper was developed by softball parents with a desire to continually improve it. If there are features you'd like to see, please let us know!
What's New in Version 1.1
Improved startup time
Excellent App - Easy to use and does the job
I watch a lot of fastpitch softball. My daughter plays on a very talented, nationally-rated team. We spend about 3 weekends a month at tournaments and that's not counting High School fastpitch.
I am constantly frustrated by broken, or unused, or non-existent scoreboards. Or, scoreboard operators who are poorly trained or don't pay attention. Based on all the above, the odds of having a reliable scoreboards at fastpitch tournaments are slim to none.
I hate to hassle my wife or other fans. Definitely don't want to distract the scorekeeper. Clearly, the coaches or umpires don't need my interruptions to confirm number of outs, strike count, score, etc.
This app was an excellent solution. It even helps me maintain focus, so I can keep my little scoreboard current. It is not too complex - just the right info to know what is going on from one moment to the next.
My only suggestion is that they add a game timer. A lot of tournaments time some or all of the games and apply the time in one way or another. If is very common to hear fans asking how much time is remaining. I would recommend an editable countdown timer that allows the user to enter a pre-determined length of time that is remembered from one game to the next. Then a button that starts the countdown.
Oh, I would also appreciate a button that allows me to deliver an electric shock to the umpire when he makes a bad call.
Went to my daughter's first softball game today and there was no scoreboard and wanted a way to track the score myself, instead of pestering the official bookkeeper. I downloaded the app just before the game began and loved it. Unfortunately, it was a double-header and my battery did not make it all the way through the second game. But, then again, I didn't start with a fully charged battery either...who knew I would be keeping score with my iPhone. One of the girls asked if I was keeping score on my phone and I said, "Of course...there's an app for that!" Thanks!
Good potential - needs fixed
This app has good potential but there are 2 things that need to be fixed. First, there's no way to back up in the app. If you hit strike instead of ball or accidentally hit a run there's no way to 'undo' without clearing the entire game and starting a new one. Second, you can't navigate away from the app without risking clearing the game. I flipped over to another app (without closing) during the middle of the inning and when I went back the app made me start a new game. That happened 3 times in one game. These 2 things would need to be fixed before I'd recommend this app to anyone.
