Your·bot Announces Version 2.

0 of the Most Advanced Golf Tournament Scoring Apps f
or Any Mobile Platform
tour·bot(TM) and tour·botPro(TM) have been turbo-charged with new features and capab
ilities that allow users to run the most-advanced tournaments possible. Upgraded
with powerful new features, such as internet-based score sharing and internet-b
ased tournament leader boards, your·bot continues to bring the power of advanced a
pp development to all tour·bot / tour·botPro users with this FREE upgrade.
Chicago, Illinois, USA, September 23, 2014 -- your·bot(TM) and developer James Pre
te announces version 4.0 of the your·bot's golf tournament scoring app, tourbot4 (
v4.0 will be available soon on the iTunes App Store) for devices running iOS v8.
x or later.
The tourbot4 app has been completely rewritten to take advantage of all of Apple
's innovation included in iOS 8. A clean visual appearance with a strong emphai
s on the application information is the hallmark of iOS 8 apps. iOS 8 also provi
des support for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and tourbot4 automatically takes advantage o
f the new screen sizes these devices offer.S
tourbot4 includes an advanced set of player management tools not found in any ot
her Mobile app for golf tournament management. Flight options include: By Tee As
signment, in 2, 3, or 4 quantitles, and manual assignment giving the tournament
director full control over player flighting. Foursome assignment allows the tour
nament director to assign up to five players to a start time with the option of
shotgun start.
tourbot4 offers 15 in-app purchase options for advanced tournament reporting, no
other mobile app offers this much. Pricing ranges from $0.99/USD to $6.99/USD.
Internet Leader boards and Tournament Score Synchronization is built into tourbo
t4! Now users can post results from within the app to the server
and instantly share them with their friends and competitors (internet-access re
quired). Live and real-time! Users may decide when to post scores or they can l
et the app post scores automatically. Let anyone waiting in the clubhouse check
the results as frequently as they wish on the server:
d.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 ava
ilable (over 27 report variations are available). The folks at your·bot have made
this new feature the most seamless and efficient scoring sharing capability avai
lable 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 inte
rnet becomes available and will update all missing information as soon as possib
Version 4.0 also introduces Foursome assignments to the Player Filtering tools.
Now, preassigned Foursome assignments may be quickly selected to focus the scori
ng screen on just the players you are playing with. It takes just seconds to set
up and can be instantly removed to reveal all players.
Finally, to ensure perfect scoring, Your·bot has added "Scoring Smarts" to the app
s. Now, when users enter the scoring screen for an event, tourbo4 will automatic
ally check all players for proper handicap index setup, and all course setup inf
ormation for completeness. If any of the critical setup-items are missing, tourb
ot4 will warn the user, giving them a chance to correct the information before e
ntering the scores. In addition, Your·bot has added a "fix" utility to previously
entered scores to allow new player and course information to be taken into consi
deration for calculating scoring results for a player.
