BigNews.Biz - May 08,2012 - Chicago, IL, May 08, 2012 -- your•bot™ and developer James Prete announces version 2.0 of the your•bot's golf tournament scoring apps, tour•bot™ and tour•botPro™ (v2.0 will be available soon on the iTunes App Store) for devices running iOS v5.x or later.
INTERNET LEADER BOARDS
Internet Leader boards and Tournament Score Synchronization comes to tour•bot™ & tour•botPro! Now users can post results from within these Apps to the GolfScoring.co server and instantly share them with their friends and competitors (internet-access required). Live and real-time! Users may decide when to post scores or they can let the app post scores automatically. Let the folks waiting in the clubhouse check the results as frequently as they wish on the server: Golfscoring.co/leaderboard.html. Tournament participants can also quickly review the tournament's current status at any time either using a long-press touch on an uploaded tour selected from the "Tours" screen or, by downloading all players' scores for an event and when scoring is complete, report the results using any and all games reports available (now over 27 report variations are built-into). The folks at your•bot have made the new feature the most seamless and efficient scoring sharing capability available to any App on any platform. Battery impact is negligible. If access to the internet is lost, no problem! The Apps will automatically recover when the internet becomes available and will update all missing information as soon as possible.
Version 2.0 also introduces one of the most-often asked for feature to facilitate scoring for large tournaments: "player filtering". When large tournaments are conducted and scoring is performed on multiple iOS devices at the same time, the list of players to be scored can be difficult to navigate for each score update. your•bot has solved this problem with "player filtering". Now, each iOS device may select which players appear in their scoring screen, allowing foursomes to focus on just their players without having to navigate through a long-list of tournament participants. It takes just seconds to setup and be instantly removed to reveal all players.
Finally, to ensure perfect scoring, your•bot has added "Scoring Smarts" to the apps. Now, when users enter the scoring screen for an event, tour•bot & tour•botPro will automatically check all players for proper handicap index setup, and all course setup information for completeness. If any of the critical setup-items are missing, tour•bot and tour•botPro will warn the user, giving them a chance to correct the information before entering the scores. In addition, for devices running iOS 5.x or later, your•bot has added a "fix" utility to previously entered scores to allow new player and course information to be taken into consideration for calculating scoring results for a player.
All of the above games may be scored and reported at the same time on the same tournament. No other golf tournament scoring software for iPhone can do this. When doing total-round-summary scoring, golfers can score gross stokes and up to three separate games (such as Binga, Banga, Bonga, or
