Keeping Score:

Keep track of points and foulds using the +Point and +Foul buttons below the scoreboard. If you make a mistake at any point tap the + / - button to enter correction mode. When you are in correction mode, the buttons will appear red and will subtract rather than add to the team totals. Tap the b>+ / - button again to exit correction mode.

Use the +Time button to advance the time bar. Each segment of the time bar represents 1/4 of the time within the period. When you advance the time bar the first time you will be prompted to specify whether the game has four quarters or two halves like this:

When you advance the time bar to the end of a period (quarter or half), you will be prompted to confirm the end of the period like this:

You can indicate which team has the possession arrow by tapping on the "POSS" at the top of the scorebaord. The first time you tap "POSS" you will see a dialog where you can choose the team that has the possession arrow. Each subseqent tap on "POSS" will switch the arrow to the other team.

My Kid:

If you have provided your kid's name as part of the Game Setup, the "My Kid" area will be visible above the Action Area.

The My Kid area will always have a "Position" button with which you can specify the position that your kid is currently playing. If your kid is not on the floor, choose "Bench." When your kid is on the floor you will see an additional Play... button in the My Kid area that allows you to enter game stats for your kid.

NOTE: There is an option in the Game Setup that controls whether entering points and foulds for your kid also updates the team stats.

Multiple Kids:

You can keep track of stats for more than one kid by entering each kid name separated by commas in the "My Kid(s)" field in the Game Setup. If you have done this, you will see an additional Kid button in the My Kid area that lets you switch between the kids. If you have just two kids, each press of the button will switch to the other kid. If you have more than two kids, each press of the button will display a menu for you to choose which kid to display. Tapping on the kid's name will always move to the next kid whether there are two or more.

Highlights:

If you want to let followers know more details than the app can provide, you can send information in a "highlight." Think of a highlight as a text message to followers. To record a highlight, tap anywhere in the highlight area (just below the scoreboard), enter the highlight text and then tap the "Done" button (on the keyboard). The highlight text will be cleared when the highlight is successfully sent. If an error occurs sending the highlight, the Broadcast Button will show "Error" and the text will remain so you can try again.
