Quick Start

Once you've installed Frames, here's some "Quick Start" instructions to get you going:

When you first run Frames, you must add an event, alley and oil pattern using the lists on the main Frames screen.

You can add one or more bowlers when you create an event, start an event, or from the Bowlers list on the main screen.

To begin keeping score, select an event, alley and pattern, enter the starting lane number, and tap the Start button. The "Roster" screen will then be displayed so you can set the list of bowlers for the event.

To score a game using Frames:

  • Use the "Score" button at the bottom of the scoring screen to score each shot.
  • Touch the pins (or drag your finger across multiple pins) to toggle them up and down.
  • Touch the "Pocket" indicator above the pins to toggle it on and off.
  • Use the "Change ball" menu item to change the selected ball (which is displayed on the title bar of the screen, next to the bowler's name).
  • Use the "Strike" (or "Spare") button at the bottom of the screen to score a strike or spare.
To view statistics for all of a bowler's games, from the main screen, tap the Clear button, select a bowler in the Bowlers list, then tap the Statistics button. You can also optionally select an alley, pattern, event, ball, date range, or lane number before tapping the Statisitcs button to limit the games included in the statistics (only games that match all of the items you select will be included in the statistics).

To see a list of scores for a bowler, from the main screen, tap the Clear button, select a bowler in the Bowlers list, then tap the Scores button. You can also optionally select an alley, pattern, event, ball, date range, or lane number before tapping the Scores button to limit the scores displayed (only games that match all of the items you select will be included in the scores displayed).

Use the Clear button on the main screen to clear your selections.
