From the developer that brought you VRC View and Toss Up Scorer…
Score your VEX Skyrise matches on the go! This app, like last year’s Toss Up Scorer, allows you to score Skyrise matches without even glancing at the screen, letting you stay concentrated on the match in front of you.
How to Use
Left side is red side, and right side is blue side
Tap on the top squares to score 4 points (Skyrise pieces and Skyrise cubes)
Tap on the middle squares to score 2 points (Normal cubes)
Tap on the bottom squares to score 1 point (Possession)
Swipe up from the bottom squares to the top squares to score 10 points (Autonomous bonus)
Swipe out of the edges to descore
Swipe across from the bottom squares to transfer 1 points (Change in possession of goal)
No plans for iOS yet. I could convince one of my iOS dev friends to port this to iOS. Or I could learn Objective-C. Or I could wait for iOS8 to release to the public and use Swift. Whichever one happens first.
I finished the iOS app last night, and Ruiqi is submitting it to the App Store to be reviewed. Only thing left is to wait for it to be approved. Typically that takes around 6 days, but hopefully we’ll get lucky and have it approved before then.
Thanks, iAndr0idOs, this app is very useful, however, it would be quite confusing to anyone who did not know all the point values perfectly. I would suggest adding an info screen somewhere that you can see by swiping to that tells how to score, or have a settings page where you can enable text beneath the numbers explaining what gives that value of points.
Also, the scores get reset when the screen turns, that would be annoying in an match.
Edit: You can also de-score the auton bonus by swiping the blocks
Nice App though, Works Well, doesnt crash (like some of mine)
Thanks for the suggestions. I’ve added a first-run tutorial to the app and prevented the app from rotating. The update should be fully propagated within the next few hours.
The iOS version is still being reviewed. The initial version of the app will be posted in the next few days, and hopefully some sort of update (I will have to talk to Jordan) will be available shortly thereafter.
I would like to point out that, all though this is a good app and I applaud you guys, there already exists an app that also scores more thoroughly and goes more in depth. You can find it here. It was made by some good friends of mine so I might be a little biased but I just wanted to point this out because I think it deserves more recognition.
Let me clarify something. Team_daVinci’s app is very good, but it’s more appropriate for scoring the match after it’s ended. It lets you be more precise as to what is scored where.
My app, on the other hand, is for live scoring, when your eyes need to be focused on the field, watching the robots, and only have a split second to glance down to look at the score. The UI is designed to have giant surfaces to tap and swipe, making it usable without looking at the screen to make sure you’re actually pressing the right thing. A lot of thinking and designing has gone into this specific design, which is why it looks so unorthodox.
Hopefully, our two apps can coexist without one beating up the other.
Thanks for making this app, it seems very useful. However, I have found a bug on the iOS version. The blue side doesn’t pick up any clicks, and the red side is split between blue and red. I am running on an iPad 4, with app version 1.0. Thanks for making this app.
