Definitely not worth 4.99. I looked up the info and it is basically a score card but with a course directory. IMO, if you are a disc golfer, you know the courses in your area and\or have searched for the ones located where you are going. PDGA always wanting that money.

Actually I would disagree, you are getting something for your $5 this way and it will probably improve over time. It does keep score, and gives you a round rating. I need to do some reading to figure out how it does that without any other rated players to compare to.

5$ ? I thought there was going to be a free version? I can think of plenty of other things to spend $5 on. There are already tons of free scorecard apps and I don't need an app on my phone to tell me I'm shooting like sh.....

I have wasted $5 on things that were not nearly as useful!

It is pretty cool that you can download course information from the directory, save them and call them up for direction when traveling! The directory is a lot more that $5 and you have to buy a new one every so often!

I know I will get my $5 worth out of it!

Thanks Don, in fact, the day before it was released, I did PDGA search in the iTunes store and did not come up with anything!

Shane,

I think it compares you to the course's average SSA or something along those lines.

Well. it does have a few bugs!

I was entering text in a couse search, and now the "keyboard" will not hide, not good!

Reload it, that will sometimes fix stuff. Reload is free.

The keyboard sticking occurs intermittently in two places. The coder is working with Apple for resolution. If it sticks while looking up a course, then back out to Start Round and select a course you've already Saved. Tap on the blue arrow to the right side of the listing. You'll see the course edit screen that should clear the keyboard. The other stick sometime happens when entering a custom course length. Back all the way out to Start Round, tap on the blue arrow for the top course on the list and select Edit Hole Info to clear keyboard. It's annoying and our testers have all had it happen once in a while.

Used it today and compared to the other three apps I have had in the past this one is very user friendly for taking score. It assumes you make a 3 and you either hit the plus sign or the minus sign to score anything other than a three. Big display so I don't need my reading glasses. It keeps track of who holds the box and it keeps track of how far up or down you are from par.

I've used this a few time so far and am liking it. I too was wondering how it did the round rating. It would be nice if it gave the distance for each hole fo times when there are no tee signs.
