I can not find this anywhere. can you please post a link to find this somewhere. i can't find it on the android site or anyother site for that matter. even went to the site itself to try and get it and nothing. please help
If you have Android mobile phone, please search it with the keyword "YourGolf" in Android Market. If you still can't find it, please search it from the category "Lefestyle".
If you don't have Android mobile phone, you can check the comments and star rating in the following site:
I'm waiting for Android to come out on Sprint. Hope its soon and reasonably priced.
I'm not sure this is the reliable news source, but maybe...
Sprint releases Android on October 11th:
How come if this app uses oobgolf for course data, the courses I find using the app do not have any data (yardage, par, handicap, etc.). Whereas, If I look them up on the oobgolf website all the data is there.
Could you please tell me the name of course you searched?
Would be great if they could make the maps work. And make it possible to save fairway hits and the additional data that you put in that doesn't get synced with oobgolf.com
Great app for first generation. Looking forward to future versions. The only major flaw that I think should have been included is a penalty shot selection.
Thanks for feedback. We are aware that shot location maps function has the problem. We are going to fix this problem as soon as possible.
The current version of YourGolf does not send the info of shot results such as fairway hits etc and the clubs used to oobgolf.com. We will handle these in the future version of YourGolf.
Thanks for your feedback. Since YourGolf is version 0.9.0, the functions you can use are limited. We are planning to integrate more function such as a penalty shot selection into the future version of YourGolf. So, please wait for it.
when should we expect an update for the app?
Thanks for using YourGolf. We updated YourGolf from version 0.9.0 to 0.9.1 several days ago.
If you still use YourGolf version 0.9.0, please read the announcement on the page: www.asai24.com/products/yourgolf_en
It is extremely important!!
For the features updated, please refer to www.asai24.com/products/yourgolf_en/update
Now that I finally got my android phone the golf season is just about over. Can't wait to use this though. Keep the updates coming such as club from tee and fairways uploading to oobgolf.
Thanks for using YourGolf!! By the next golf season, we will try to develop more and more features to be able to upload more data to oobgolf.com.
Please follow us on Twitter for any news or inquiry: twitter.com/Your_Golf
Used the app a couple days ago for a local course. Worked out very well, would be nice to have an instant yardage to front, middle, and back of green a la SkyCaddie. I have another app called FreeCaddie for the Droid Market that you guys can look at as a reference to what I'm using. Now I just switch between the two apps but it would be nice to have them both in YourGolf. Very good app to start with though, keep it up Oobgolf!!!
Thank you very much for using YourGolf and giving us great feedback.
The next version of YourGolf will have the function to calculate the distance.
It allows users to measure the distance between the point you selected and your current location.
So, I believe its function will meet your need.
We are planning to release the next version of YourGolf on the end of this month.
So, please wait for its release.
How about giving the ability to update course information. Tried to play Manteca Park Golf Course in Manteca, CA and no info, yet on the site people have played this and Oobgolf seems to have the info for the course. How come not on the app?
I'm afraid that we cannot have the function to update course info since oobgolf does not allow us to do it.
I checked Manteca Park Golf Course.
The reason why YourGolf shows the warning message is that "Gold" tee lacks the information of yard. Other tees, Blue and White, are fine.
You can check the data in oobgolf.
When you see the warning message, select "Go" and then select "Blue" or "White" tee to start playing.
Sorry for making you confuse...
About the post I did on 1/12/10...
After the testing application, we change the way of calculating the distance.
Instead of letting users to select the point they want measure, YourGolf always shows the several distance circles to allow the users to measure the distance.
Sorry for the late release...
We are now finalizing the development.
Please wait for one or two more weeks.
I used YourGolf today for the first time, I must say I do love it. One request though if you are taking such things, it would be great if we could keep track of clubs and such for others in the group and then upload them all to oobgolf. I only golf with those in my group and it would be perfect if at the end of the round i could just hit upload to server and all our scores went in.
Thanks though for the great little app!
YourGolf does not show up on the T-Mobile Mytouch android market place.
Just checking to see how things are going, I also have a T-Mobile MyTouch and I can't find this app on the market.
Thanks for your feedback!!
We'll consider those functions for the future development of YourGolf.
If you have any more feedback or inquiry, feel free to email us or post on here.
To Arkman7 & racingboy20
Thanks for the valuable information.
Since we do not have MyTouch, we didn't aware of the problem.
It may be difficult to figure out what the problem is, because MyTouch isn't released in our country.
But we'll try to figure out what the problem is.
If you find any problems on any devices, please tell us!!
To someone having MyTouch, HTC Hero or Droid Eris
Could you please check the "YourGolf" is on anroid market?
If it's not visible on the market, please check you device's android version. (Settings -> About phone -> Firmware version)
It seems there are 2 problems on the market.
1. If the version is 1.5, you may not be able to see our app. If there is any way to update the version, please update it to 1.6 or higher.
2. If the version is 1.6 or higher, the problem seems to be related to "copy protection" setting of our app. We will release no copy protection version for avoiding the problem.
We need the information to make sure the above problems are only cases.
So, please help us. Thanks.
I am on android 1.6 on the MyTouch and I can not see it. It must be the copy protection setting. When is the eta for this to be released?
Thanks for giving us MyTouch information.
Since we are now developing the multiple Android application, it is difficult to determine when non-copy protected version of YourGolf can be released.
We would like to release it by the end of this month, but please understand that the release date can be postponed.
I have a Android based Motorola Click with T-Mobile and am using version 1.0.0 of YourGolf. I love the score keeping functionality of the app, but the GPS map always gives me a force close error. Is there a fix?
Its April :) The weather is getting nice and would really like to see this app on my MyTouch. Could we get a status update? Thanks again!
Ignore that, just noticed it is on the market now! Looking forward to trying it out today.
Please check your network connection and GPS status when you open the map.
Also, can you please check other apps, which use Google Map in their apps.
It is interesting that you can now see our app on the market because we have not updated YourGolf yet. Did you perform device(MyTouch) update? Anyway, please enjoy our app and report us if you encounter some problems.
We just released minor updated version of YourGolf, ver 1.1.0. Since "Bug Report" function has been integrated, you'll see alert dialog after you encounter the force close error. Please follow the instruction written in dialog, and send us a log file. It will be very helpful for us to fix the problem.
I was able to find yourgolf in my android store now. I haven't used it yet but will let you know if there are issues. Thanks!!!
Ok, I got a chance to try it and two comments so far. It wont connect to my oobgolf account. I'm 100% certain that the username/password is right but it says to check the to make sure they are valid when send to server. Also, there is no function for 9 holes only. How should I do just a 9 hole game?
Thanks for trying YourGolf.
Your feedback is very helpful for us to develop YourGolf.
First one was a bug. Sorry for making you inconvenient. We just released fixed version. Please update and try it again. It should be fine now.
If you want to send 9 holes' scores, enter scores 1-9 or 10-18, and then upload scores from "Send server" button.
If you have any more problems, please let us know.
That worked! Now, I'm not sure if its a phone issue or an app issue but when I try to get an map of the hole it can't find it. I have gps working on my phone and other apps can find my location, like google earth. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for checking!
Map problem seems to be our app problem if other maps are working well.
But could you please check again that your GPS is turned on because there are two ways to get your location on Android. One is from GPS and another one is from network.
Many apps use both way to get your location, but our app use only GPS.
GPS does not detect your location if you are inside a room.
Could you please check below:
1. From [Home Screen], tap [Menu].
2. Go to [Settings] -> [Security & location]
3. Turn on [Enable GPS satellites]
4. Turn off [Use wireless networks]
5. Check other apps and YourGolf's map
*Menu names may not exactly be the same depending on your device
Thanks for your corporation.
I can't get this to update from 1.0 to 1.1 it just says downloading update and after 15 mintues it's still saying that.
ignore that post, it finally installed
Thanks for downloading!!
It may take some time for you to be able to download the new version when the updated version is released.
So has this been updated yet to show you quick yardage.. this app would be great if it had a quick button to show you yardage to at least just the center of the green... I hate trying to run 2 apps and trying to switch back and forth
We are really sorry to keep you waiting.
Since the next version is changed a lot, we are still having a lot of things to do...
So, the development still take some time.
However, we may ask some users to try the new version before its release.
We will announce it on this discussion when it's ready.
So, please wait a little bit more...
Thanks for all sending us a bug report.
We will release the fixed version as soon as those errors are fixed.
Hey, i can't find YourGolf on the market. I have an HTC Desire with Android 2.1... =(
Thanks in advance =)
Thanks for giving us the information.
The reason of the problem that app does not show on Android Market can be many...
Could you please answer the following question to identify the problem.
1. Which country are you from? Some countries restrict to show some apps...
2. Could you please ask your friends who have other Android phones to check if they can see YourGolf. If YourGolf is visible from other devices, the problem can be the device or market problem.
hi, i'm from germany. I don'thave any friends with android phones (iphone casualties ^^)
I checked HTC desire today, and YourGolf is on the market.
So, it's not device problem.
It may be locale problem.
So, could you please check one more thing.
Please change the language setting to "English", then search by the keyword with "YourGolf" or "Golf" on the market.
In order to change language setting, press "menu", then select "setting" -> "Locale & text" -> "Select locale" -> then select "English".
If you still have problem, we will do something for letting you download YourGolf.
So, please let us know after you check it.
Hi, I changed the language to english, but the market still doesn't find YourGolf =(.. Thank you for your support! =)
To phil000r & others who can not download YourGolf:
Please click the below link from your android device.
You should be able to download and install YourGolf ver 1.1.2.
If you still have any problems, please let me know.
Thanks a lot =) Nice app =)=)=)
Hey thanks, i used this for the first time this weekend and it worked well. One suggestion i have it would be nice if there were an option that the scoring is automatically set to par for each hole. For example if it's a par 5 and i double bogey, rather than hitting the plus button 7 times, i would only hit it twice. Or if i birdie it, i would just hit the - button once, not 4 times.
Thanks for giving us your feedback.
I think your suggestion is very nice for users to make their score entry easier.
We will take it into consideration for the future development of YourGolf.
Nice app. Keep up the good work!! Couple suggestions.
1. Ability to delete a shot/putt in the app. I accidentally added an extra shot and have to log on to oob to delete it.
2. Ability to move/insert shots, so if I forget to mark a shot, I can add it back easily.
3. Use the last club used when adding a shot. If I just hit a 5 iron, my next shot PROBABLY will be shorter distance club. It's kind of a hassle to start from driver and scroll all the way down.
4. Ability to output all the shots I marked to a server so I can review them on a PC. The screen on phones are too small.
Thanks again for this amazing app.
Thanks for using YourGolf!
1. Yes, you cannnot delete your scores as you stated... But, you can update your strokes, if you re-send data to oobgolf again. However, your putt count is not updated. We will fix this in the next version of YourGolf.
2. This feature will be integrated into the next version. Please wait for its release.
3. We will change the user interface of club selection in the next version of YourGolf. It will be much easier to select your club in this version.
4. Yes. We are aware that this function is very essential for our application. We are now start considering for the development of server side features.
Thank you very much for giving us the great feedbacks.
Your suggestions are very valuable for improving the quality of YourGolf.
If you have any other inquiry or suggestions, feel free to post comment on here.
I'm surprised hnlk was the first to post about #4 problem. That IMO would be a great change and I anxiously look forward to the update.
Thanks for your comment!
We will do our best for the development of server side features.
Will there be any support for uploading multiple players scores to oobgolf? (Assuming they each have an oobgolf account)
Since the current(and next) version of YourGolf is not designed to support for multiple players uploading, we are not sure about this at the moment. However, we will do support it in the future version of YourGolf if there are many request for this.
Can this application also do stableford scoring for miltiple players with handgicaps up to 26?
I am having a small issue with the application. It seems to always upload my round to Oob as a "practice" round. I then have to go to the Oobgolf site and manually edit the round. Is this the correct way?
Sorry, the current version does not support for it. But, the feature version of YourGolf will support for the feature, which allows users to record some point for each hole.
By the way, which country are you from?
Could you please tell me how often people play "stableford scoring" as compared with standard play in your coutry?
The current version of YourGolf does not have the feature for changing the type of round.
YourGolf always set it as "Practice" round.
So, please change it at oobgolf.com if you need.
Would be nice with meassures in the metric system. Thanks :)
i updated to droid 2.1 on my htc hero and now can't find the yourgolf app anywhere in the market. what's up with that?
just downloaded but can't find any courses, tried turning on the gps and also tried searching without gps but nothing happens. phone is a sonyericsson x10 mini pro.
To All Users:
We have just released the new version of YourGolf!
Please try it and feel free to give us some feedbacks.
Yes, we have that request from some of the users.
We are planning to develop the function to measure in the meter in the future version.
So, please wait for a little bit more.
Please download the latest app from the below link if you are unable to find YourGolf on the market.
?Please access it from your Android device
Please make sure your network is working.
Also, try to use the simple world like "golf" to make sure the search function is working.
If you can't find some specific course, please visit oobgolf.com from your PC to check whether the course is registered.
Is it just me or does anyone else question why this app needs access to !Your personal information (read contact data), !Storage (modify/delete SD card contents) and !Phone calls (read phone state and identity)?? I had recently purchased golfcard and since their recent upgrade *sarcasm* I've been searching for a new app.
Reading contact data permission is needed to enable you to select your friends for playing with at "Select Player" page.
Permission to access SD card is necessary for making temporary file at SD when you send a scorecard or bug report by email.
Although our application does not need the permission to read phone state, it is automatically added as permission.
This is happened because our application support Android 1.5 devices and the above.
I'm not sure why this happens, but if you search about this you'll see many people encounter this problem. So, please understand it.
If you have any more inquiry, feel free to post a question.
does your app allow you to keep track of side games ?
nassau,point game etc.......
Please add allowing other players to upload to oobgolf also if they have an oobgolf account. I saw this requested by someone else ealier in this thread.
1. Why do I have to search and then download a course everytime I play it? Can't you save this Info in a favorites place?
2. Allow us to save our player partners names (and oobgolf login information) so I don't have to type them in each time. Allow uploading other players info to oobgolf (as requested above)
#2 above. I see the players I added in "Player History", my mistake. Still need to add a place to store their oobgolf login info though.
Sorry... we do not have those features.
Although it's difficult for us to develop those soon since there are more requested features needed to be developed, we think the game elements are important to attract users.
Are you from USA?
Could you tell me what kind of side games are famous in your country?
I'm afraid the games are different between coutries...
#1. YourGolf does not have its feature now. However, we received this request from several users, so we will try to integrate it into the next version of YourGolf.
#2. We are aware some users want the features to allow saving the data of partners.
After last update, there are many requests from users.
We will first develop the future which has more requests.
So, please be a patient for a little bit more.
Can you add an option to NOT keep the GPS on all the time, and only turn it on when you view the map of the hole?
I rarely use the GPS and if I choose to use it, my phone is rather quick to find the satellites.
You are right. The app needs to have the option to disable GPS in order to save the battery of your device.
We take it into consideration for the future development of YourGolf.
Thank you very much for your suggestion!!
I can't find YourGolf on the market. I have an Sony Ericsson xperia 10 mini,
The 2.1.1 update says your can load course from history now...I cannot find that option, only thing in history is rounds already played. How do I start a NEW round from history of courses I have played?
Nevermind, i see that's in the 2.1.2 update which the market is not letting me download for some reason.
Sorry... it seems the update process of 2.1.2 to Android Market has been failed by unknown reason. So, we released the new version again, 2.1.3. You should be able to select course from history at "Course Search" page. Please try it.
Please search it in Android Market with the keyword, "YourGolf" or "Golf".
Or click the below link from your Android device:
If the above link fails, try the blow to download the new version of YourGolf!
hi i cant get the map of the course to show at hereford municipal when i try to open the map the three icons for clubs show then it closes
How about the other course?
Can you open a map?
The map problem is reported from several users using Droid or Droid X.
What Android device do you use?
Hi i cant get any maps
My phone is a samsung galaxy portal GT 15700
Iam in uk
Love the app, tried it for the first time today.
However from the round history view I am trying to upload the results to oobgolf and I consistently get the message "Sorry but something was wrong to fail sending. Please try later."
I have checked and confirmed that my oobgolf username and password are correct. I am in the UK and this was a 9 hole course.
I should mention that this is using Android 2.1 on the HTC Desire.
Thanks for your information.
Please let me make sure one more thing.
Do you have any other application using map, except google map?
If not, try others and tell me the name of application working well.
Since this problem occurs depending on the device, it's very hard for us to find out the problem.
So, please give us more information.
Does it happen only some specific course? or every course you tried?
If it happens every time, please make sure your network is working well when uploading.
YourGolf returns this message if your network is busy(too slow).
If it happens only some specific course, please tell me the name of the course.
I will try to upload by using my account for making sure the course data is correct.
I've tried with 2 courses :
Woodbury Park Golf Club - Acorns
Exminster Golf Center
In both cases 9 holes were entered and I'm getting the same error when trying to upload.
The device is connected via WiFi and all other online applications such as web browsing, Facebook and so forth are working fine.
I've also just tried with a US course (Pebble Beach Golf Links) and get the same error.
hi i have got skydroid and accelgolf the map works on both
I received a notice that YourGolf had an update yesterday (26 July). When I attempt to update, the download fails and it is now stuck. It shows the download progress bar, but when I click on it, it says marketplace is not responding and I have to force close. I uninstalled the app to attempt to reinstall, but now when I go back to YourGolf in the Market, it still shows that the app is downloading.
I have a Nexus One with Android 2.2 (Froyo)
Nevermind. I had to clear the Market cache and data and then it downloaded just fine.
Thanks for your information.
I tried to upload the course you said and it was fine.
So, it is not the problem of course data.
Could you please answer the following questions.
Sorry for asking you so many...
1. Please make sure the version of YourGolf is the latest, 2.1.3. You can check it at "Help" page.
2. For testing purpose, please try re-download "Woodbury Park Golf Club - Acorns" course, and just use "+" button to fill-in your scores from 1 to 9 holes. Please do not record the information of clubs or results.
Then please try uploading.
3. If the above does not work, please delete the application once and re-download YourGolf again. Sorry to ask you to do this...
Thanks for your information. I will do my best to find out the problem. I will announce it here when I fix the problem. So, please wait for that.
I am on version 2.1.3.
I have tried both suggestions and still get the same error I'm afraid.
Thanks for helping out, really like the app and it will be perfect for me I'd we can fix this upload issue.
I have downloaded the app, and it looks great. However a version using meters could be nice. Will there be a version using meters in Market soon?
I saw the comment about the maps not working on the Droid phones, it's not working on my Droid X as well. Is there a work-around or should I wait for the next update?
>>I have tried both suggestions and still get the same error I'm afraid.
Do you still get the error after deleting and re-installing YourGolf?
Yes, we will work on its feature as soon as we finish fixing the bugs we have now...
Sorry for making you wait... but please wait for a little bit more.
We are working on investigating its bug.
We will post about it when we fix the problem.
I have re-installed twice and I still get the same problem of not being able to upload at all. Any course I choose gives the same error. I get the same problem when connected by WiFi or 3G.
I thought the problem is related to the data.
But it seems not... since the problem happens after re-installing the application.
Could you please make sure other internet connection FROM YourGolf is fine?
Please go to "Help" page from the top.
Then, click "oobgolf" or "Asai, inc" to make sure the network is accessible from YourGolf.
Also, do you use English characters for your login id and pass for oobgolf?
If you use other language, please tell me the language you use.
I use all English characters for my oobgolf login (letters and numbers). I have deliberately tried setting either userid or password wrong and I get a different error message to tell me to check my oobgolf login details, so I know that the upload function is at least making contact with oobgolf.
I have tried as you suggested and selecting either Asai Inc or oobgolf websites from the YourGolf Help screen loads the webpage correctly by launching the Android default browser.
Thank You for considering meassures in the metric system, I look forward to it.
And thanks for the nicer interface in the newer version :)
As for answering another post about stableford scoring, I play in Sweden and this is the regular game here and with what You calculate your handicap. So in sweden (and I think all nordic coutries) it is very common and it would be great to be able to enter you hcp and get the score calculated based on the slopetable of the court.
dr. email@example.com says:
Dr. Bernd Kircher,
a great app. I love it. I have one question. Is it possible to change yards in meters?
Dr. Bernd Kircher: It is not yet implemented (distance in metric system) but I as well as others here on the forum are eager to see it happen. The gps-view is in meters though.
And I have another wish/question. If I just want to enter putting-shots, do I have to manually enter that for all the puts of the hole? For me it is a bit much to enter each shot (what club and where it went) but I would like to keep track of just how many putts I have made for every hole. Would be sweet with a way to easy enter just the putts. Thanks.
And a yeah, it doesent really bite when I choose what clubs I am using. I anyway get the full list on every hole. Not so bad but a small bug i suppose? (i have android 1.6 on a htc magic)
And.. our swedish letters (å, ä and ö) does not show correctly when I search golf-courses. Could you make this unicode maybe? Thanks again.
Hi again and sorry for spamming. :) I just compared with YoruGolf on another phone with android 2.2 and here I see that I can just press a button for entering penalty, shot and putt. This seem to not work on the 1.6 version of android. So you can discard my earlier question if there is an easier way that to enter putt or shot manually. There is, just that it doesnt work on my soon obsolete phone :).
The swedish letter Å, ä and Ö is still a problem though.
Hi, I think your app is fantastic. Thanks for making it available to us avid golfers. One question, is it possible to keep track of fairway stats (i.e., drives that end up in the fairway)? I couldn't find that option if it exists. If not, would you please add it? Even better would be a way to keep track of whether the drives that don't land in the fairway are going right or left.
Thanks for giving us your information.
I have tried to figure out what the problem is, but could not find it.
Since this is a very rare error, I think I need to develop some test application in order to figure out the problem.
However, since there are more critical error in YourGolf, you need to wait for a while.
I'm sorry, but please understand it.
To dr. firstname.lastname@example.org
Not now, but we will develop its feature since we get its request from several users.
We will announce it when the feature gets ready.
- About handicap feature
Sorry, we do not have any plan to develop the feature related to the hcp at the moment since its culculation is different depending on countries.
- About encoding problem
Does oobgolf correctly show you swedish letters? I think oobgolf.com does not handle unicode characters since the last time I register course information by using my language, it got garbled.
Since we send the search request to oobgolf.com, if oobgolf does not handle unicode, we cannot search for it.
-About the bug in Android 1.6
I have htc magic and it works.
So, please make sure the version of YourGolf you use.
You can check it at the "Help" page. The latest version is 2.1.3.
So if yours are old, please update it at Android Market.
YourGolf has a feature to calculate the number of fairway hits. (but no right or left)
You can keep track of the number of fairway hits by entering the results of each shot as "Fairway".
Please tap the button which shows the number of strokes at Group Play or Single Play page.
Then, you can tap the "Edit" button for entering your shot results.
The fairway hits are uploaded to oobgolf.com.
hi any luck with my problem yet thanks
- about Hcp feature
Ok, I see. Sorry did not know it was so different between countries. But could be possible to just enter the stableford point you get for each hole perhaps?
The idea here is if it is par 3 on a hole and your hcp is 18 on an 18 hole course you get 1 shot extra for each hole. If you have hcp 19 you get another extra on the hardest hole (depending on the slope-table).
I understand if You cant tailor it to all different systems if there are many. Just let us know if you want more info about the calculations in the future, the math is quite simple.
- About encoding problem
No You are right, oobgolf presents garbled letter as well. Not much You can do about it I guess.
-About the bug in Android 1.6
Yes I have the 2.1.3 version. Are you sure you can access the "Putt", "shot" and "penalty"-buttons from the group-play screen? On my device the buttons flashes by but then I get directed automatically into the "Edit Your Scores"-screen.
Thanks for paying attention and a nice product. :)
Love the app...thanks.
I have the Motorola Droid. Why is it that for the last 10 to 15 rounds I uploaded to Oobgolf, it shows as a practice round instead of standard?
And it would be nice if you could make a better GPS app for your golf. Something like 'Skydroid'. I have to run both apps in order to get the right yardage to the pin. Plus it shows yardage to hazards.
To stevepaint :
Sorry for making you wait for a long time.
We have managed to get Droid device. We will get it soon.
So, as soon as we get it, we will test it and fix the problem. (maybe next week)
Please wait for a little bit more, thanks.
You can access those "Putt", "Shot" and "Penalty" button from Single Play page.
From Group Play screen, please tap the "GPS" button located on the right of "+" button.
Yes. The current version of YourGolf set the round mode as a practice.
Since we received several requests of its feature via email and here, we will develop the feature to change its mode in the next version of YourGolf. So, please wait for its release.
Developing the features like Skydroid takes a long time to develop.
We would like to develop such features, but it's difficult at the moment.
In the future, if we have a time and resource, we will do it.
So, please looking forward to it.
How do I enter handicaps so it will calculate stableford scores?
This is the most important part of an app for me
thanks for reply, looking forward to it
Could you please tell me how to properly track shots using gps? Last week when I used the app on the course then uploaded it to oobgolf the yardages off the tee were inaccurate. The user guide doesn't offer any instruction..thankyou
I also have exactly the same problem as Paddy01 - not being able to upload scores. I have the same phone (HTC Desire) and same set-up (2.1.3 & no connection issues). I've followed the instructions you gave (inc. the reinstall) without success.
No sorry YourGolf skips the buttons also in single play and when I push gps+.
I'm having the same problem as tuco and Paddy-01 when using the app on my HTC Eris Droid. After 18 holes... no option to upload and scores did not automatically upload to the account. Bummer.
To stevepaint, Yukon_pg:
Thanks for waiting. We have just released YourGolf ver 2.1.4.
Please check whether it solve the map problem.
If you still have any problems, please let us know.
To Paddy01, tuco, bmyrick007:
Sorry for making you inconvenient.
I integrated the function to send us a log for the error.
After you see the error msg "Sorry but something was wrong...", please close the app once and re-open it.
You will see the dialog for asking you to send us a bug report.
Please send us it.
It will help us to fix the problem. Thanks.
We are sorry that there is no function for handling your handicap in YourGolf.
So, you can only manage your handicap at oobgolf.com after sending the scores from YourGolf.
It is difficult to determine how accurate GPS is since it depends on your Android device and the place you use.
Sometimes, it may show you a very different point.
So, please understand it.
thanks alot guys seems to work a treat so far
I have submitted a couple of bug reports for the upload failure. Fingers crossed!
Hi again, just rooted and upgraded my magic to FroYo (android 2.2) and now the buttons work.
But.. that stableford thing (points on each hole based on your handicap). Its not shown in oobgolf either. Cant even find the hcp on the holes on the scorecard.
Sorry for making you wait for a long time.
We are still having trouble for find out the cause of the error.
So, we just updated our app to enable users to send more detailed log.
Please send us bug report again if you encounter the problem.
Thank you for your corporation.
It's great to hear the button works now on your phone. But I still do not know why it didin't work on android 1.6 on your phone...
Sorry, we do not have any feature to treat stableford points at the moment.
After the latest update (2.1.5), when I exit your app the GPS remains ON. When I exit the App if you turned on the GPS, you should also turn it back off.
As it is now, when I leave your app, I have to go to phone settings and disable the GPS manually.
HTC Hero (2.1 firmware)
ok. IF you ever plan on a feature regarding stableford please ask a European what we want it for. I have done some research and understand now that we use the hcp system totally different than the americans (in the rest of the world I don't know).
Here we need an oficiall hcp to be able to play at all and we have it since we are beginners (and we don't have private, semiprivate and public courses in the same meaning). And we use the stableford (almost) to calculate points for every hole separately and from this we calculate our hcp, and our hcp is based from our best score (not average). Hence we all here in europe would die for an app that calculates this on the fly, and it should be a so easy thing to build in to an app (its not even hard to calculate manually, it just the thing of it as a so obvious thing to be perfect for an app to do).
This is the reason I thing why europeans just cant understand why there does not exist an app that does this. And if you think like an american, hcp is just different
And..i might add.. after every round we calculate our points (not strokes) and if we have enough we lower our hcp ourselves basically (no need of a golf pro or anything). This means that we adjust our hcp quite a lot during a season.
Ok, now I'll shut up :) Thanks
Speaking about the upload problem... I have two rounds recorded in history. One was played without tracking GPS positions of shots, other with GPS tracking.
First one is uploaded to database successfully (the first time and from history as well). The second one, which is with GPS positions, returns an error when I'm trying to upload.
Hope it helps.
Yes, the dream to have an android app with GPS tracking, convenient score input, extensive course database AND EGA hcp calculation is still here :)
maybe someday someone will fullfill this dream :)
Re: my previous message up there /\/\/
It seems to not shut the GPS off only if it does not find any satalites and then I try to exit the app.
Let me clarify the problem you are having and terms I use.
These are the GPS settings user changes at phone settings(Setting->Location->GPS satellites).
This setting can not be changed from the application although the app can ask users to move setting page in order to change its setting.
So, if GPS setting is disabled, the app can not get any location of user.
If GPS setting is enabled, the app can turn on GPS to get the GPS location.
In YourGolf, we turn on GPS at course search, score entry and map page.
Each time you leave these pages, GPS is turned off.
This behavior can be seen at the status bar on your device.
If the GPS is on, GPS icon is displayed on the status bar.
If the GPS is off, GPS icon becomes invisible.
So, if you are saying that GPS is not disabled by YourGolf, we don't(can't) do it.
If you are saying that GPS is not turned off, please tell me more detailed instruction how to do it because I could not see it on my devices.
Thanks for your great comment!
We did not know much about European golf system.
We will do our best to improve the quality of the application.
Thanks for giving us more information about the uploading problem.
Since we are still having the troubles to fix the problem, your feedback is very valuable for us.
Could you do us a favor?
Please re-download the course you couldn't upload.
Then, please record scores without location data, then upload it.
Based on our investigation, we do not think the location data does affect the uploading problem.
So, we would like to make sure it.
Also, we would appreciate it if you can tell me those course name.
Thank you very much for your corporation.
Yes, you are right - the problem doesn't depend on GPS location data (sorry I've messed you up :)
The course I've tried is The V Golf Club: Bridgewater ( www.oobgolf.com/courses/course/25160/THE_V_GOLF_ There are two courses entered, I've tried second one - Bridgewater (mini-course of 9 par3 holes)
Hope it helps.
Thank you very much for your information.
I have tried the course you told me, but there was no problem for uploading.
Could you please tell me the following information:
-Do you always fail an uploading the course you told me? Your "Recent Scores" shows me the its course score. Did you manually entered it?
-Are there any course you fail to upload? If so, please tell me the name of the course and its tee name.
I'm having a hard time on figuring out how to use the shot distance and club used. Do I hit shot at the Tee box and the club i used. Or do i hit shot at were the ball ends up after my first shot off tee box?
Also...it would be nice if you added a sand button
Please tap "shot" button just before your shots.
Then the shot location will be marked on the map.
At the moment, if u want record as sand shot, please select shot result as bunker.
YourGolf upload its record to oobgolf.
I tried to download the app for my Galaxy S, but i can't find it in the appstore (also not with the mobile browser on your homepage ( market.android.com/search?q=com.asai24.golf)
I would like to try the app.
Well, I've tried this course only a couple of times and every time upload wasn't successful. The record in Recent scores is done manually through oobgolf.com, not uploaded from yourgolf app.
I have no other course with failed upload as an example (i've only played on two with this app)
I'll try to simulate a round on the course for which upload was successful and see what happens.
Please access the below link from your android device:
You can install the latest version of YourGolf.
If you have any trouble, please let us know.
Thank you very much for your corporation.
We are looking forward to hearing your experiment.
I've tried to simulate 9 and 18 holes rounds on Capitals GC ( www.oobgolf.com/courses/course/315158/The_Capita
This time uploads failed (please note that I was able to upload stats for this course earlier - 7/5/2010)
Also tried teh European Center Course ( www.oobgolf.com/courses/course/316719/European_C which I surely didn't edit before. Uploads failed.
Tried both WiFi and EDGE/3G.
All tests were done with GPS switched off.
To snark & others who have been failing to upload
We just received email from oobgolf staff.
It seems they have fixed the problem on oobgolf system.
So, please try uploading the score data again.
All(or some) of you should be able to upload the score now.
If you still have some problems, please let us know.
Last post posted by "testyourgolf" is "YourGolfDeveloper".
Sorry... I have logged in by the different account.
I can confirm I've just successfully uploaded a score where before none worked for me so it does appear to have resolved the issue. Well done to all for persevering.
Yes, I confirm - upload working well.
To paddy01 & snark
Thanks for checking the problem.
According to the staff of oogolf.com,
the problem had been occurred depending on one's handicap setting.
This is why only some specific users encountered this problem.
Thank you very much for waiting for a long time.
We could not fix this problem without your corporation.
We are really appreciate it.
Hi again GPS not working again everything else seems ok but i just get the message failed to locate my position any ideas
Please make sure the GPS on your device is working.
Could you please check below:
1. From [Home Screen], tap [Menu].
2. Go to [Settings] -> [Security & location]
3. Turn on [Enable GPS satellites]
4. Turn off [Use wireless networks]
5. Check google maps and other apps using map apps and YourGolf's map
*Menu names may not exactly be the same depending on your device
Love the upgrades to the Android app! Would like Fairways hit entry on app for par 4 & 5 holes to make the app complete for me ;-)
By setting "Fairway" as the shot result for your first shot, it will be regarded as Fairway hits on oobgolf.com after uploading your scores.
You can edit your shot result at "Edit your scores" page.
Please tap the white button the stroke is displayed at score entry page, then you can move to "Edit you scores" page.
To Droid X users:
Does anyone use Droid X 2.1 update 1?
Some users report us that the label texts on white buttons are invisible on their devices.
So, we would like to make sure if the problem is related to its device model or only some particular devices.
So, if you are user using Droid X 2.1 update 1, please let us know.
Thanks in advance.
any chance of measurement in Meters as well as yards?
Is there a way to enter Fairway, Left or Right while entering shots & club selection? All I see is that I have to edit the shot to select Fairway. I'd like to see an automated inquiry after the 1st Shot-Club Selection on par 4 & 5 holes that asks Fairway-Left-Right. Something as simple as; Fairway? <- X -> with 3 entry buttons for hit, left or right. Not critical, just something to add to the wish list. Thanks!
Yes, its feature will be coming soon.
Please wait for a little bit more.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
We have received several requests from users about the improvement of score entry.
So, we have been considered to improve the interface of score entry page for easier recording of scores.
It will be integrated into the future version of YourGolf.
So, please looking forward to it.
I can't find the Android app anymore. I have looked in the market and tried to download from the your-golf-online.com website. It doesn't exist.
Please let us know the followings:
1. Which Android device do you use?
2. Which country do you live?
Since YourGolf is copy protected application, if your device doesn't have sim card the app is not shown on the Android Market.
If the golf course doesn't already exist on the system do I have pay a monthly
subscription before I can add the course and use the score card? Is there
a way I can just use this as a general scorecard without the specific golf
course being registered
If you can't find the golf course, please visit the following page:
If you want to add a course data by yourself, you need to pay a monthly subscription, but you can see "Request a Course" menu from the above link page.
Requesting course is a free, so please send the course information to them, then they will add the course data for you.
I have tried this software for 3 rounds and have not been able to track my shots accurately with GPS. I have strokes marked with 1-4 yards when I watch them from oobgolf.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong.
my phone is HTC Desire HD and I have all checkboxes checked from Yourgolf settings.
Thanks for asking the questions. Do you tap "Shot" button and select club each time you shot? If so, please view hole map page each time and check if pin icons and places on the right location on the map.
Hi, when I try to upload scores, I get the following errors:
Sorry, thye score upload has been failed due to unknown reason. Please try it later.
My phone is Motorola Milestone, Android 2.2.
My YourGolf Version is: 3.3.0
I play a lot of 18 hole courses in my area that allow me to just play 9 holes. Is there a way to score 9 holes on a 18 hole course?
My buddy that I play with, is also a oobgolf member. Can I upload his score to his account as well?
I can't find any courses on the course search using keywords or gps. I even tried a general term like "golf" and did it out in the open, but no results came up.
Hi great app. I am having a problem lately though. When I go to history and pull up a recent round I try to view my shots on the map. Instead of showing my shot history it shows my current gps location (like my house) or wherever I am trying to view the history from.
Having a similar problem to eugenioalonso as mentioned a few threads ago.
Cannot upload to OObgolf. I have a HTC desire HD and yourgolf version 3.3.0
Have now downloaded yourgolf version 3.3.1 and still cannot upload to OObgolf. I get the message "To OObgolf, failed user name and password" "To Yourgolf, send success". I have gone online on PC and logged on to OOB just in case as well.
I just downloaded the droid app and I cannot login . It says that the oobgolf login expired. I am able to login from my pc. Please help
I'm not sure this syncs with oobgolf anymore. Just upgraded to v 4.1.0, and all the graphics have changed, the scorecard module gets stuck and I cannot delete the scores from my last round and start a new one, nor is it able to upload onto oob. I say trash it.
I'm unable to sync my online scores with my phone app after upgrading also. Is anyone else having this issue ?
Yes, this is terrible now. Can we find a way to revert back to a working version that allowed updating to oobgolf??
Hi, been using YourGolf for a few years (Android) mow and love it on the course. I live in Japan and being able to download courses here is fantastic! However GPS is not reliable. While playing on Dai Hakone Country Club course last weekend loading the hole map before the shot showed me as being on someone's roof in the city.
Any help with that? Have not been able to use yardage function so far and would love to have that.
since upgrading my phone to galaxy s4 android 4.3 yourgolf 5.3.2 I can't sign in to oob golf to upload my scores when I enter the password and press the back button the return to check sign in the password as increased in lenghth to 3x character
The your golf app isn't uploading scores to oob anymore. Had support for this stopped?
