New Breakthrough Basketball Stats App for iPad

By Joe Haefner

We recently released our brand new Breakthrough Stats App for iPad.

iPhone capability is coming soon!

Did you see the frenzy?

On Thursday, the Breakthrough Stats App sky-rocketed up to #2 on the Top Paid Apps list for the Sports category in the iTunes store. Thank you for contributing to this and creating the huge buzz.  We are truly humbled.

We also received some great instant feedback and one person wrote…

“I like the advanced stats that only you provide and the simple user interface. It is a great value for the app. Others are around $20 or more.”

More information on the Stats App

The app is designed for coaches, parents, and statisticians. It will allow you to…

  • Track LIVE stats during a game.
  • View key game stats after each quarter and at half time (effective field goal %, field goal attempts, free throw %, free throw attempts, turnovers, offensive reb %, etc).
  • Make objective adjustments during the game and get an edge on the competition.
  • Instantly calculate over 65 basketball statistics that would be almost impossible to do without automation — paint attempts, lay up %, EFG%, bad passes, player efficiency, and many more.
  • Export statistics reports to PDF, Excel, CSV (for PC or Mac).
  • Get critical stats that other apps are lacking.
  • Easily create clean looking shot charts and track lay ups.
