There are instances during games when the device used for scoring becomes unavailable due to low battery, software updates, or other unexpected reasons.
In these situations, the scorer may wish to continue scoring the game from a separate device without losing any data.
Before switching devices, the scorer should ensure that the original device is connected to the internet by checking their device wifi or 4G symbols and checking scores are syncing to playhq.com. This will ensure that no data will be lost when switching. The scores on the new scoring device will be from the last time the device was connected to the internet.
