CrickoHolic : Cricket Match Score Updater

Challenge

World cup is on! and If you are a cricket fan then you must be checking score update for each match frequently while working. I also do so [When India is playing!]. But sometime while coding I need to keep my Visual studio instance open and at the same time I also want to check score, for which I used to do ALT + TAB, between my Visual Studio and Firefox.

I was thinking to have some tool, which seats at corner of my desktop and keep me updated on latest score without doing any ALT + TAB. You also think so? Then CrickoHolic is the software for that.

Solution

Basically, CrickoHolic will seat at corner of your desktop and keeps you updated about the latest score. And moreover it will always be on TOP of all windows. So, there is no any chance that any window can overlap it. Sounds interesting? Let’s see more about it.

Main features

  • Always on top of all windows.
  • Seats at right bottom corner of your desktop.
  • Auto updated.
  • Shows Current/Recent and Up Coming matches updates.
  • Minimize button added (Thanks to Devang for the suggestion!)

System requirements

.NET 2.0

How to use?

1. Download CrickoHolic.zip.
2. Extract the zip file, you will find file with name CrickoHolic.exe.
3. To run it, just double-click the .exe.
4. That’s it! Enjoy🙂

I would like to hear from you

    Jab aisi application khud banate hai, jo sab frequently use karte hai..to bahot accha lagta hai.. even-though we don’t get paid for that.. but internal satisfaction milta hai..
