Webe4Mom's Review of Hoopstats Basketball ScoringReviewed on 9/20/19 2:17 PM
December 7, 2018 Update Hoopstats continues to work at its game. By far it is the best app for balancing ease-of-use with quality output which has real in-game use for coaches, scouts, statisticians, journalists, or parents. Postgame reporting and in season analysis is fully supported and exportable in common file format. What has it done for us lately? Rare continues to add even more efficient auto complete functionality, simplify clock usage to better track player time (helpful in managing players recovering from injury - no subjective estimating for understaffed programs). Best responsiveness to questions around. As a coach, I use it to help our high school program with in-game analysis (especially useful at halftime), MaxPreps reporting, and in-season analysis. I've helped out local D-3 programs in the Chicago area and am continually amazed at what these hard-working and under-resourced coaches and SIDs have to put up with from their conferences. In sum, our program has been using Hoopstats for almost a decade. I don’t personally know anyone at Rare Software and have no economic incentive to write this review; I write it for the same reason I coach: to help others help young student athletes think, learn, improve and grow. Each off-season we've evaluated other apps and keep coming to the same decision: stick with Hoopstats. ========== Hoopstats is by far the most balanced feature-rich basketball stats app available today, capable of supporting college through middle school program needs except live game stats media feed needs. In my experience with college, high school, and middle school students as the people recording the game statistics,the app's learning curve needs only one-half game for students to become proficient and a game or so for student users to be able to produce reliable results. Further, Hoopstats has two customizable fields which can be configured to compliment team goals, for example tracking transition scoring, passes/possession, etc. during a game. Based upon my use of all serious iOS basketball stats apps, I believe almost all now have have good data export, and adequate reporting information communication capabilities (e.g. Maxpreps or VarVee), with no app holding a distinctive advantage over the others. In my opinion, while the leading serious apps have different report format and stats content distinctives, Hoopstats' inter-device Bluetooth data transfer capability, ease of configuring season, game, team, and player settings (particularly within or just prior to a game), its two customizable stat tracking input fields, and above all Hoopstats' intuitive, straightforward and unfrantic game event input interface push me to recommend Hoopstats over all other stats apps.

This is a great app but it would be good to be able to manually input stats from a game that already happened.

Your app is not user friendly. I am still trying to figure it out. I add teams and players then it goes no where! It seems like that is all you can do. Is there a tutorial anywhere?

Love the program as it is second to none when keeping up with real time game stats. Developer does an excellent job of answering questions and adding updates that are needed from coaches that use the app. Keep up the great work!

It's a great app. I love the shot charts and the amazing features to this app. They should add a stat for points in the paint and +/- stat. Overall a very good app.

Used this after it was updated & the playing time for each player was not correct. It was almost like it only counted 1 quarter instead of entire game (4qrts)

I have used a few of the stat apps (mostly the free ones) because I didn't want to commit to purchase something that was difficult to use. This is totally worth the price. It has a small learning curve in the set-up but once you get players and teams entered, it's easy to use. The reports are very useful with shot charts and stats broken down by percentages. If you are a parent and only want to keep track of one or two players, just create your player and a "team" and you are set. If you are an assistant coach and in charge of stats, you won't go wrong with this. You'll get very detailed stats and you can check player stats during the game if you need. It's intuitive - when a shot is made, it automatically asks if there was an assist. If a shot is missed, you are asked to input the rebounder. Your head coach will love you and so will the players when they see their game broken down with the shot charts. Nicely done!

I had an iTunes gift card and didn't really need it. I bought n tested iScore, BALLERS, and iScoutBball... This one is BY FAR the simplest, has the best reports, and quickest in-game/pre-game setup. The others were complicated, took too many taps, weren't easily customizable, gave horrible reports, etc. I spent 30 something fake dollars, don't waste your real money. Get this one before they realize they're the best and double the price.

The app keep shutting down. And it is very hard to figure out how to set it up
