Umpire Observations
updated 8 January 2020

Welcome for Observations for Windows (v3) and the
Observations Companion for Android (v3).

These applications allows umpire coaches and observers to observe and record observations at games in real time.

Specifically, it is aimed at observing field, boundary and goal umpire observations.  It supports emergency umpires and interchange stewards if required.  Furthermore, it is configurable to add your own extras - or remove types you may not need.

It can actually be configured to support any sport - even though it is built for Australian Rules Football.

Observations for Windows runs on most Windows devices (PC, laptop, tablet).

Usability is greatly enhance by using the Observations Companion for Android - for match day recording of observations.  The Observation Companion for Android allows you to spend your day at the football free from pen and paper, free from bulky computers or tablets, and allows you to simply use your Android Phone in your hand.

At last, we have a solution for Android users.

In addition to v3, Observations v3 adds:

Please let me know if you are interested in participating in further testing of the software throughout the 2020 football season.  Full FREE Support and Training (excluding travel expenses if required) is available for a select number of participants.

Note that Observations for Windows MUST BE INSTALLED and USED to take advantage of the Observations Companion for Android for umpire observation functionality.  However, the Windows version need not be installed to only track scores and times on the Companion.  See the v3 reference manual for more information.

When using the Observations Companion for Android with Observations for Windows, it is mandatory to have a Microsoft OneDrive account (free).

NOTE that Apple devices are NOT supported!  Should you require Apple support, the code is 90% ready to go and I will progress if and when I can acquire a reasonable sponsor.
