Cricket live scores on your desk­top in a jiffy

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

Cricket lovers are sure in for a treat! Gil­lyCricket is an open source ap­pli­ca­tion, which pro­vides the scores of each match live. The scores of a live match reach your screen within a frac­tion of a sec­ond.

Prasanna Venkadesh, the maker of the app, in­formed, "By us­ing this app in your desk­top, you can get the live score in max­i­mum 6-7 sec­onds and min­i­mum of 4 sec­onds, even if you have a slow In­ter­net con­nec­tion! Ob­vi­ously, the time con­sumed will be less in a fast In­ter­net con­nec­tion." They say ne­ces­sity is the mother of in­ven­tion. It was Venkadesh's ne­ces­sity that in­spired him to de­sign an app like this. He said, "I was in a place where I did not have fast In­ter­net con­nec­tion and tele­vi­sion. All I had was a slow USB wire­less In­ter­net con­nec­tion. I wanted to keep my­self updated with the scores in IPL 2012. But the slow In­ter­net con­nec­tion was a ma­jor hin­drance. So, I thought of mak­ing an app that fetches scores re­ally fast."
