How to Make Android App Work Again

Last week we updated some security features on our server that unfortunately caused an incompatibility issue with the existing version of the Android app.

We have since updated the App to fix this, but to make it work you may need to completely delete the old version of Infinite Disc Golf, restart your phone, and then install the new version.

How to make the App Work Again

1. Delete the app completely off your phone.
2. Restart your phone.
3. Install the newest version from the Google Play store.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience.

How to get the Course Location Right

For an unknown reason, some courses on Infinite Courses just don’t show up in the right spot on the google map, even when the address entered is exactly the same as Google has it.

Some courses have even shown up in the middle of the Ocean off the coast of Africa. Unless you throw a lot of Lightning or Aquaflight discs, you probably don’t want to play disc golf in large bodies of water.

To get the disc golf course to show up in the right place, the website now as spots to enter GPS Latitude and Longitude directions. Click the black “edit course” button (found on every course page next to the course description) and this screen will appear. in

To find the correct latitude and longitude, simply go to google maps, and click the spot at the park entrance. On the bottom of the screen will populate the accurate GPS coordinates.

By populating the course page with correct GPS coordinates, the course will now show up correctly on both the website as well as the Infinite Disc Golf mobile app.

Find Disc Golf Courses With the Mobile App

One neat feature of the Infinite Disc Golf App is the ability to find disc golf courses that are close to you — wherever you go! This is a fantastic feature for when you’re away from home on business or vacation and have a few extra minutes to get away to chuck some frisbees. As long as you have a GPS enabled smart phone, you can find the nearest course to you wherever you are within the United States and Canada.

There are two ways to find nearby disc golf courses using the app:

  1. “Nearby Courses” in the left drop down sidebar. As soon as you log into the mobile app, you will notice three horizontal lines in the top left menu bar. Click the three bars and a blue drop down menu will appear. To find the disc golf courses near you, simply click the “nearby courses” link.

You can search by name, recently played, or by finding a nearby course using the GPS map. Click the second blue bar that says “search nearby courses.”

This map will show you your current location, and all of disc golf courses within the vicinity.

New Android Update – Auto Save and Resume Round

A new Android version of the Infinite Disc Golf Scorecard app was released today at the Google Play Store. This app version doesn’t have any major updates but it does a couple things that make it better and more user friendly:

  1. Resume app from the same screen. Previously, if you closed the app down and opened it back up it would always start back at the dashboard. Now the app re-opens from the screen you last left.
  2. Auto Save Rounds. This is one of the biggest requests we’ve had. Now if you need to leave in the middle of a round and want to return and finish the round later you can.

To save your app mid round, simply close the app down by clicking the ‘X’ in the top right corner.

A prompt will appear that says, “Do YOU WANT to Exit?” Click. Yes. This will save your round.

How to Get Courses Rated

 

How do I get courses Ratings?

There are two things you need to do to get a course rated.

1. Have a current rating. This rating needs to be either a bold Infinite Rating, BoldRatingor an accurate PDGA rating above 800. If your PDGA rating is not an accurate reflection of your current skill level as a disc golfer, it should not be used. The PDGA rating needs to be entered in your Infinite Profile for the rating calculations to work.PDGA Rating

How do I earn an Infinite Rating? An Infinite rating is awarded after rounds are played on course layouts that have difficulty ratings established. Your rating becomes “bold” after 10 rounds are played on rated courses. If there are no rated courses in your area, then you’ll need to wait until players with PDGA ratings play those courses at least eight times.

2. Play and record scores for at least one course layout a minimum of 8 times. (Even better, have other rated players play the course with you. Course ratings are more accurate with a larger sample of players).

You can record these scores with the Infinite Disc Golf app, or manually submit them on Infinite Courses. Instructions for adding scores are found here.

If you have saved scores from rounds you’ve played in the past, you can manually submit those. The scores you record must reflect your current rating skill level, otherwise courses will not receive an accurate difficulty rating.

If you don’t have any saved scorecards, just go out and play as much disc golf on as many different courses as you can. This just might be the excuse you need to grab some buddies and take that disc golf road trip. At least half of the scores submitted need to include individual hole details (establishes hole averages).

July Promotion: Earn up to $100 by Using the Infinite App

***Attention Android Users***

We’re pretty close to being able to release the mobile app to the general public, but there are likely still a few bugs. This is why we need you to help us find them. To incentivize app usage, we’re giving away $100 in Infinite Gift Cards for using the app during July. Unfortunately, the app is not yet available for IOS devices.

Download the July 20th version of the Android App here.

 

July Promotion: Get Paid to Play Disc Golf

Congratulations, you are officially a pro! Okay, probably not, but during our July promotion, you can earn up to $100 in gift cards by simply playing disc golf and recording scores with the app.

We will randomly select five scores submitted during July, and award the users $20 gift cards. The more rounds you play, the better your odds of winning. If you record and upload your friends scores, they will also be eligible to win.

To qualify, these scores need to be recorded with the app while you are actually playing the round. The app now records your round time. Only rounds that take at least 30 minutes will qualify.

DO NOT enter spammy scores and try to game the system to win free stuff. Only honest, accurately entered scores will qualify.

Two of the gift cards will be awarded specifically to players who also enter putting stats.

How the Infinite Disc Golf App Works

If you haven’t used the Infinite app yet, please take a few minutes to read about what it does and how it works. You must have an Infinite Profile set up to use the mobile app.

If you have a PDGA rating, please update your profile to include your current rating. This will help to get more courses rated.

If you aren’t a PDGA member, try to play courses that already have an established Infinite rating so that you can earn an Infinite Rating (most of these courses are currently in the Mountain States). One of our next goals is to get as many courses rated as possible so that ratings can be earned and displayed after every round played.

Many of the app features will not work fully if the course, layout, and hole distances are not already added to the system. You can do many of these features right from the app during your round, but some of these tasks are more easily done beforehand from a computer.

The “How To” section of the right sidebar of InfiniteDiscGolf.com contains detailed instructions for many features of the courses site and mobile app.
