I've downloaded everyone I could find for iPhone... DG Caddy is currently the best one out there. I've emailed the guys who developed it (RobotNinjaZombies) and recommended some additions to the app, mainly counting your putts per round, tallying OB/Hazard's, simplifying the round list so it can be minimized under each course, a place to take notes for holes and courses, a place for a course map, a summary/graph of your recent rounds as a whole instead of just by course.. and some more I can't think of.

I suggest emailing them with any suggestions you have so we can get it improved. Here's the link to their future enhancement page so you can see what they already have planned to add on to it. http://robotninjazombies.com/Bugs.aspx

I use easy scorecard. It can be used for DG or ball golf. It does pretty much everything you asked for except pics/maps of the course (but it does have a GPS function). Not sure if it's available for iphone.

It's in the planning stages. Here's the official thread on PDGA app development: http://www.pdga.com/discussion/showthre ... ost1458798

Direct connection to updated PDGA Course Directory which will generate round ratings plus a more visible, colorful interface (compared with the best Android app, Easy Scorecard) that's easier to see in bright sunlight.

that round-ratings function sounds cool. will it have configurable pin/tee options so the ratings will be accurate?

Current version displays the one or two total course lengths that are listed in the PDGA Directory for that course. If you know that you played a pin combination that's different from what's in the directory, you can enter a different total length for that round and the rating calculation will use that length. You have to download a course that is actually in the PDGA Directory to get ratings. For now, you can't create a course in the app with hole lengths that's not in the PDGA Directory and have it calculate ratings.

It's in the app store now. Use search term "sports disc golf" and it's one of the apps listed.

It does track averages for each hole for each player, but you can only view them in scorecard mode (you have to be currently scoring a round).
Pros: Easy to use, tracks multiple players hole averages
Cons: No option for long/short tees. Cannot change pars (everything is 3).


You can change the par with the Discgolf app, by clicking on the Par 3 at the top right. It took me a month or so to figure that out though, not the most intuitive implementation.

I've tried a couple other apps and this one is still my favorite for the price. It also let's you export historical data into a spreadsheet format and email it to your friends, etc.

I downloaded and used Discasaurus today. Not a bad app. Pretty bone head proof and straight to the point. I like the upload and course leaderboard feature. It would be real nice if they had a bag organizer like DGCR's added.

We downloaded the pdga app about 2 weeks ago. Before that my hubby just had a free app. We are loving it so far, although I am not too sure how accurate the round ratings are. Of course, if they are I am amazing!!!Lol.
