[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas - StatGeek, LLC today is pleased to announce the arrival of StatGeek 1.0 for iPad. With StatGeek, users can capture accurate and insightful statistics for basketball via an easy-to-use touch-screen interface that simply tracks the movement of the ball.
Other basketball statistics apps capture stats the old-fashioned way - by using the iPad as an updated pen and paper system. This causes users to try and remember every single action and record it after it occurs.
By incorporating revolutionary methodology, StatGeek calculates statistics using a simple interface combined with a unique and innovative algorithm (affectionately referred to as Stanley the StatGeek) to calculate all the stats. Users simply follow the ball as it moves throughout the game. This turns any volunteer into a professional statistician with the ability to produce a full and accurate box score as well as a play-by-play recap of the game.
Our unique algorithm allows a novice or expert scorekeeper to keep more accurate statistics in more categories than any other statistics app on the market. The app also stores all team information on the iPad so users can keep stats for the same team multiple times without re-inputting the roster. Users can also easily retrieve box scores from past games.
Users also have the ability to spread the word by emailing reports right from StatGeek to other fans, websites and newspapers. StatGeek exports .html files that can easily be sent as links via Twitter or Facebook or imported into Excel for further manipulation and study. All of these features are available now in the App Store for iPad for just $4.99 USD.
From youth leagues to the NBA, StatGeek is customizable for any level of basketball. For youth sports, StatGeek provides an easy way for parents, coaches and fans to collect basic game statistics and game information and distribute it to family, fans and scouts.
For high schools and AAU/club level teams, StatGeek easily turns any volunteer or student assistant into a professional level statistician. Coaches will be better armed to make in-game decisions, and amateurs will have more opportunities to provide coaches with accurate stats as they vie for college scholarships.
At the college and professional levels, StatGeek aims to provide the same cutting-edge, in-depth analysis of objective, empirical evidence that Moneyball pioneer Bill James provided baseball with sabermetrics.
Features and Capabilities:
StatGeek has the unique ability to record statistics for games with four quarters or two halves for any period length. The app even allows the scorekeeper to select whether the game clock will be stopped on dead balls or to have the clock run continuously.
For the error-prone, making a mistake during a game is no longer cause for alarm. StatGeek allows users to adjust plays in game to correct any errors, which then adjusts the full box score automatically.
