Iphone Ipad PHRF real time scoring apps?
Posted 18 November 2012 - 07:59 PM
I've been looking at different scoring apps, and wondered if anyone has found a solution to this...Or even if a solution exists?
I'm trying to get our club into the 21st century with scoring and although the old DOS program we use still works, its not user friendly and no one wants to do it.
We have 3 Divisions of boats but now only have two starts. PHRF boats and J24's. We like to still score TOT overall corrected as if all boats went off at once.
I was looking at PHRF Race Control which has some of the features I'm looking for but it only scores for one race and it doesn't store your fleets information making it necessary to input all the competitors and ratings in prior to each start. What is really cool about the app is that you can just tap a boat's name and it will finish them and show corrected position. Once each boat is finished you can email or text all the scores and the boats can see on their iphone or any phone for that matter and text them the results before they hit the dock. Problem is that it does this for only one division/one start, it also seems to erase all the boats that are entered when you start a new race. https://itunes.apple...d446172109?mt=8
Then i looked into iYachtTime and I can't seem to figure out how to set it up.https://itunes.apple...app/id512319438 Not sure if it will do what I want it to.
I found this app:
but I can't find it in the apple app store so I'm not sure if it's still available, and not sure if it does handicaps.
So, has anyone found an app that will do what I'm looking for that can be run on an ipad or similar tablet? PHRF race control would be perfect if it had more functions.

There very well could be better programs out there today, I don't know, haven't looked. The solution we have is so easy and it has worked well for so long. We haven't changed a thing in years and it still works, so why look elsewhere. Afterall, all we are talking about is applying some simple arithmetic to elapsed times and letting competitors know whether or not they won.
