There is an app for that! - BoulOmetre Petanque

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2012-06-11

Exclusively on Iphone.

"You take a picture of the boules layout, and then center a circle with adjustable radius on the target ball. The first boule to touch the circle is closest. Very simple." -- PetanqueAmerica.com

Do you know the famous french game "petanque" or "bocce" (mainly played in south of France). Well if you play it you will use BoulOmetre to know which ball is closer to the "cochonnet".



Use the embedded Iphone camera to take a picture of the balls scene.
Click "use", then use the sizable circle to know which ball is closer, it's as easy as that.




Features:
- Use of the Iphone embedded camera
- Cicadas background sounds for great Mediterranean immersion
- Anti-Cheating-System



Is is available on the Apple App store
