Cricket live scores on your desktop in a jiffy
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."
