Who should score?
It doesn’t matter as far as IBEScore is concerned. It is normal that all players at the table may have IBEScore on their phone.
If two players enter the same score into their phone, there will be no problem. If second scorer enters a different score to the first, then the first score will stand, and IBEScore will notify the second scorer of the discrepancy. Tap the “Cancel score” button in the centre of the screen.
If the first player entered an incorrect score, simply step back to the board in question using the small black arrows on either side of the board number at the top of the screen.
If only one player enters the scores, other players with IBEScore on the same table should refresh the game at the end of the round, so that their devices know that the round is complete. This is done by tapping the “Refresh game” IBEScore menu icon.
Refresh Game is a great starting place, as it solves many problems straight away.
I accidentally closed IBEScore
What should I do? Did I lose all my scores?
Nothing is lost – just click on the IBEScore App again. We have designed this application with a memory – so the game code and ID will all be remembered, so it should just be a matter of tapping the IBEScore globe image followed by “Enter round”.
Remember to always click to Refresh Game whenever you have been away from the game for a while, as other scores may have been entered at other tables in the meantime.
Will using IBEScore cost much in data usage fees?
IBEScore’s data messages are very small. A session with IBEScore is roughly comparable to writing a few E-mails in terms of amount of data transferred.
I put the names for my pair correctly but IBEScore forgot them when we moved!
This may indicate that the game or the device is set to remain at a fixed table, when it should be set to move with its owner. This can be changed on the player’s device by using the “Settings” menu option; tap “Table number” till it changes to “Pair number”, then “Save”.
In some games the director has set permissions so that players cannot change their table or pair number or names. In this case simply ask your Director to help.
