The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Will there be a Android version available soon?
I don't think my touch is new enough to run it. But I have friends with the I phone4 that would jump on it if I told them it got good reviews.... but like Josh we will play more then 6 in a group from time to time. You should up it to 8 or 10, remember there are millions of discgolfers and only around 40,000 living PDGA members, so your target audience shouldn't be PDGA players.
Not to hijack the thread but.... This is what I see the major problem with the PDGA is, when it comes time to make a decision the PDGA caters to the few instead of the masses.
While I understand you are the ruling body over tournament/competitive discgolf, that should not be your main concern when creating stuff you plan on marketing to the public.
Is there an additional fee for non-members? LOL, j/k.
I am a member just not active, and I know what you do for the discgolf community Chuck and we appreciate it , so don't take this personally.
Just thought I would touch on the subject.
I don't think we want to encourage groups over 6 to play even in rec rounds, especially slowing play by keeping score. PDGA players play rec rounds, too, and don't want big groups in front of them. Ball golfers would laugh even talking about 5 let alone 6-somes.
But seriously, the way the screen is set up, six players provides the maximum use of screen space for easily and quickly seeing players and scores. I don't think it's wise to compromise the quality of the app for most people to accommodate bigger groups than should be playing at one time. I'll submit the request but I doubt it will be as high of a priority as including other features that need to be added to deal with several course issues it doesn't handle yet.
I understand, if its a matter of ease of use/viewing it's for the better. I just thought if it was purely a matter of the PDGA rules influencing the final product the PDGA would be doing itself a diservice by limiting players. but that does make sense.
I ball golf and we often play 5-6 people groups during twilight, but we never finish, and we know it's against the "rules".
