I use a program for my blackberry on occasion called Wireless18 when I dont have a paper card. But the great thing is if you use it exclusively it will track your games for you and show you progress on your game. It is made for ball golf but works pretty well with disc golf and can hold up to 4 players. The link is below and I believe it will work work with other phones as well and it is free if you don't want to use the online side of it to track your games.
Just did a search for wireless18 (just installed it on my phone) and opening up this very old thread, the app does everything i want basically (keep scores), but it would be nice if their was a product out their specifically tailored to disc golf, the bonus stats like GIR / Putts I suppose i could use and tweek to suit DG, but maybe a product already exists?
The scorekeeper is great because you can use a normal pencil on it and your writting does not disapear unless you rubb it with some water (or saliva). There is a clip to it where you can attache your paper score card like that you have a hard surface to write on. It is pretty sturdy as well, I have seen people throwing it of anger after a bad shot and it held :)
It cost only $15 and you can get it online at www.chainlinksdiscgolf.com
There is an app for androids, and I would think Ipones for this. If you go to the Android store it's called "Easy Scorecard" it's set up for golf, but they made it so you could say you want disc golf.... that way it feels more like home.
Yeah, I use that one. It's a very nice app. You can store disc golfers, courses and even post your scores on Facebook or Twitter. But what I probably like the most about it is that you get to see stats for every hole if you check back on history. For example, you can see what your average is on a particular hole. Very nice and very simple to use.
Interesting discussion. I use the standard paper and pencil myself. But I played with a guy yesterday who also kept his own score on a digital watch. He had to fidget with it a few times, but it seemed to be a habit he developed and just sticks with it, tournament or not.
i have used an app for my Droid that works perfectly, problem is its just easier to use a paper scorecard on a small clipboard and just hang it from you bag. the phone or electronic idea is cool but you have to be careful with them so they dont get damaged......dirt, scratches, ect. My droid is an example, its expensive and if its on and i forget to silence the ringer than it could ring during a round, thats not cool. my vote is for the mini clipboard hanging on my bag. peace.
