I want to create an APP (which will eventually develop into anything up to over 100 different APP's, based on the original template) users can keep certain statistics of their kids sports. I want to create a different APP for each indidvidual sport. This APP needs to store these statistics and also create averages, totals and other detailed stats.
I am pretty sure this APP will be huge in USA as their sports are very stop-start, creating time for parents to enter key stats, and they love their sports statistics.
But I want to start the first APP on Australian Rules Football and Tennis, as I have been keeping stats for my son each and every game he has played so far. Thus the reason for this idea of an APP :)
I want to create a very user friendly APP so the less pages the better. I will create a simple as possible APP to make and to use. If this sort of APP is tricky to use it wont work as the user will end up missing their kids action, and that is not the aim of this APP.
I will start with the top 10 most popular sports from selected countries plus an APP for Athletics - Track and Field ,Swimming and eventually launch a winter games selection of APP's.
The diversity of this APP from one template is nearly endless as there are literally 100,s of different sports.
I am still to learn a lot about building an APP, but I KNOW what product I need to be successful.
SO for example.
Australian Rules Football
Opening page will have options:
[ENTER NEW PLAYER] This will take you to a 'set up' page to enter players details at start of season. SOme sports may have height and weight as a matter of interest. Also the League, Club/Team and Division playing for.
[*NAME OF PLAYER ALREADY ENTERED], by pressing this option - will go to that players 'Home Page' which will have a quick overview of that particular players stats so far in that particular season, showing averages of each statistic. Another option will be [NEW GAME] to which a new page opens with date & opposition details to be entered and then [START GAME] to go to statistics entry page. Other option on the players 'Home Page' will be [START NEW SEASON] this must be followed up [ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO START A NEW SEASON] as choosing this option will automatically send all the stats to that playes 'Home Page' as an option to view. ie [2013 SEASON] and reset the statistics to '0' in all options ready for new season details.
each time the player executes one of these skills, the user shall push on a [+1] button/icon next to that particular option and one will be added to that particular statistic.
At the end of each game, an option to press [END GAME]
once this is done, those stats to be stored in memory on the phone and instant totals and averages are worked out for players home page.
Now this is just a quick overhaul of what I am looking at. I am sure with experts advise and my sense of direction/knowledge of each sport, we will create a great program of App's.
Obviously each sport will have a few variations with statistics etc, but the bases will be all the same and very simple to work on. I am just excited at the multiple options this can offer. I know several parents that try to keep statistics of their kids and I know this option will be one they will use.
