Great app! Would love a feature to separately score boys/girls in the same race.

Works well. Would be nice if team names and athlete names were stored so did not have to retype for each meet. Other than that, it seems to work well. Will find out in a couple of weeks.

This will come in handy. As a XC coach I'll no longer have to guess whether or not we won a close meet. I wish you could pre enter the racers names before the race starts. No matter a well thought out app that I am anxious to try out. I hope my fingers are fast enough to enter as the competitors come in. Will take good eye / finger coordination. All in all a very cool app it has a few shortcomings so with a few updates it will get five stars. Will re-evaluate after my first official use this fall.

I am a high school cross country coach and we use this app to score our home meets. It works great to get quick results at the end of the meet. We connect a keyboard through BlueTooth to type in runner names. Warning- you must be 100% accurate with the finishing order. A "misplaced" runner requires deleting that and all subsequent runners from the race and re-scoring thereafter. If the app was able to swap runners between teams to correct a misplaced runner it would be perfect. Timing is great- but any close finishes require a careful eye and fast fingers.

Gret app. Helps every meet. Wish I could do 2 separate races at once. Ex. Boys and girls
Robert Hussey's Review of Xc ScoreReviewed on 9/24/19 2:20 PM
October 26, 2013 I can confirm that the scoring is perfectly accurate. The places shown are the raw results, but when scoring you need to take out runners 8+ and all runners whose team had fewer than 5 finishers. When you score it is as if those runners did not finish. Thus any runners who finished after them get a lower scoring place. I tested several scenarios and in each case this app was correct. I gave 5 stars for accuracy and because the e-mail function worked better than I had expected, dropping both team and individual results into nicely formatted tables. It also attached a CSV file for importing into a spreadsheet! On the iPhone 5 I can see 6 teams without scrolling. Ideas to improve: 1. A fast way to undo a mistaken entry. An undo button or a '-' button or even a rigorous shake of the phone with visual confirmation. 2. A short vibrate and a short beep when tapping during the race. 3. Greater visual feedback on a tap. For runners 8+ there is very little feedback. You could show the raw place number at the top? 4. Ability to configure the team colors during setup so the buttons are color coded. Team logos would be cool but probably overkill! ;-) 5. iPad version where the buttons to tap are large-ish squares, but you can get more on the screen. Agree that a phone is easier to carry during a meet. iPad mini? A great app. I can definitely recommend.
Xc coach 2014's Review of Xc ScoreReviewed on 9/24/19 2:20 PM
THE APP DOES NOT WORK, and there is no real customer support or contact phone or email. I bought this app because I thought it had a working recorder! However, even if I follow the prompt and allow the app access to my microphone and turn the microphone on at the bottom of the main screen, the microphone/ recorder does not work. It continues to display "Unfortunately, due to the microphone being disabled, no audio was recorded for this position"! DO NOT BUY THIS APP UNTIL THEY FIX IT!

Great app, very helpful at the finish line especially in a race with no chip timing but scoring is not entirely accurate. App does not take into account a teams 6th and 7th runners displacing runners in other teams top 5 that finish after them. Would be 5 stars with this correction.

App is a start in right direction. We noticed more times than not; the team tally was added incorrectly. 2,5,7,12,15 instead of showing 41 the app showed team score of 47. Bug somewhere??? Smaller team buttons would make scoring 5+ teams easier. Only fits 5 teams on iphone screen without scrolling.
