Filtering Rounds

As people start to play more rounds it can be a little more difficult to find specific rounds.  In an effort to resolve this I have added two new menu options about filtering the Rounds list screen.

Now when viewing an individual course you can now open the menu and go to a new round list screen with just rounds played at that course.  I thought this might be helpful to see how you’ve played a course in the past.  You can now see how you are trending at that course.

The second menu change is to the Rounds list screen.  Now if you press the menu button you will have the option of filtering the courses.  This menu button will navigate you to a new screen where you can choose to filter by course, year and/or holes.  Make you choices then click Apply and you’ll be navigated to a filtered rounds list screen.   To remove the filter just navigate to the Filter screen again and click clear.

I am using these new features to see how I’m going in my 9 hole league and to see the rounds I entered last year.  Hopefully this will be beneficial for those of you that play a ton of golf each year.  If you would like to have some more filtering options please drop me an email.

Backup & Restore

In a recent update to Handicap: Golf Tracker the ability to backup and restore your data was made available.  From the main screen you can now press the Menu button on your phone and the options to Backup and Restore are available.  This feature will backup your stats, courses and rounds to your SD card.  

Once you have backed up your data you can easily move it to another phone or your home computer for safe keeping.  To restore the data just make sure you copy the handicap folder with the export.xml onto your SD card.  Then after starting Handicap: Golf Tracker press the Menu button and choose to restore.  This will delete all current data and replace it with the data from the SD card.

I hope this feature will make it easier for people to move from phone to phone.  It will also make it easier for those that downloaded the free app to migrate over to the paid app.  As I’ve said before there will be advantages to owning the paid version in the future.  This feature should help those planning on making the switch.
