The Spike for Tykes volleyball tournament was held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on Friday, May 5. Congrats to St. Xavier (Cincinnati) for winning!! And even more importantly, there was a lot of good volleyball and lots of fun and excitement! – And all for a good cause!
We donated the use of our computers and used VolleyTourney.com for live scores and automatic bracket updates. Everything worked like a charm!
Thank you to all the coaches who brought their computers/iPads and to all the VolleyWrite scorers! You were an important element in the success of the tournament!
Earlier this week, the iTunes App store approved the latest release of VolleyWrite for the iPad (3.1), and today we have released the latest version of VolleyWrite for WIndows (version 3.1.13) on our website. These versions include the new lineup entry into lineup diagrams matching what the coaches submit, which we think will eliminate lineup problems for your matches. (Yay!)
We want you to have the best scoring experience ever!
VolleyWrite version 2.3.23 is available for scorers using WIndows computers! Make sure you update to the latest version as soon as possible. Yes, it will probably do it on its own when you open VolleyWrite with internet access, but you can go to the Resources page and click on the green VolleyWrite button to do it now if you would like.
You will want to check out the release notes for this version on that page also, as there are quite a few enhancements! We want you to have the best scoring experience ever!
Last night, during testing (of a new version for release) at a real match, we experienced a random “lock-up” and we gathered the info we needed to figure it out. The problem is that Windows 10 does not always return the correct system date and time (and based on our internet search, lots of other people found this out the hard way too), and VolleyWrite uses that information when creating the match file. We are now working on an updated version to release ASAP.
If you experience a problem, please let us know (by sending a Feedback Report), in case Windows 10 has any more “surprises”…
can go to the iTunes App store to download and install the latest release of VolleyWrite which was approved late last night, Wednesday, October 5.
Version 2.2.3 handles the “surprises” in iOS 10, fixes some general bugs, and improves file handling to work better with iOS and iCloud. Although you won’t see any major operational changes, if you have ever experienced a random “lock-up”, that should be a thing of the past. (And if it isn’t, please let us know!!!)
I’m also a high school official and have worked games with [VolleyWrite] at a few high schools and it’s a dream come true to solve the hassles of slow scorers and ones who have no clue. I’m now a big fan!
Congrats to Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio
for winning the Spike 4 Tykes tournament on Saturday, April 23!
The Spike 4 Tykes tournament combined volleyball matches with a
fundraising effort for various Children’s Hospitals in Ohio.
Thank you Capital University for allowing the tournament to take place on your campus and for providing solid, strong internet for our live updates!
Fans getting match info at the Information Station
VolleyWrite was used to score all the matches on all four courts. Better yet, VolleyWrite was connected to www.VolleyTourney.com for live score updates and automatic bracket progression. The fans loved being able to check what was in store for their team and keep up with the action on the other courts.
Version 1.10 for the iPad has been approved for sale by the iTunes store, so be sure to go to the App store and download the latest version. This is a free upgrade that fixes the problem with a bad prediction showing up after set 1. If the user accepted the bad prediction, the internal model of the court was confused and things spiraled downward.
Predictive assistance is a cool and convenient feature (especially now that this bug is fixed), but you must still make sure that the players involved are correct!
