Disc Golf Scorekeeper 1 Year Anniversary

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

The one year anniversary of our biggest app, the Disc Golf Scorekeeper will be coming up at the end of June (in about a month).  There are a lot of things that I’ve wanted to do with the app, but I’ve just never been able to do because of lack of time and such.  Now that Otto the Otter is out, and I don’t really have any other apps in the pipeline (yet), I really want to do a major version 2.0 release of Disc Golf Scorekeeper.

Since the anniversary is coming up, I’d like to do that as a deadline for me to get it in the App Store. I will do my very best to release this complete overhaul of the app on June 23, 2011 to commemorate the anniversary.  I feel like Baked Ham Games has come a long way in the short time that it’s been around, and I really want to make the best product possible for my customers.

Some things I plan to include:

  • Complete overhaul of the entire app (i.e. rewriting everything from scratch) to make it the best it can be
  • Support for up to 27 holes per game
  • The long-awaited GPS-assisted tracking of throws, discs, player stats, etc.
  • Players saved to be added again later easily
  • Players will be represented by photos and not just names
  • Courses will be saved to be played again later easily
  • Pars & distances for each hole on each course will be saved so that they only need to be entered once ever
  • Facebook & Twitter integration to post your scores for all to see (hopefully there will be time for this)

I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me, but I want to do the very best I can for those who have given your valuable money to help Baked Ham Games continue.

If you have any questions, feature requests, or comments, now is the time to sound-off! We have a long month ahead, and I’m excited.
