Discasaurus for Android
I released my first Android app today built using Sencha Touch. It is a free scorekeeping application for the growing sport of disc golf, and you can see screenshots in the app store entry linked below. Thanks in advance for any feedback :o)
- Must have a free Discasaurus profile to use (signup at http://discasaurus.com)
- Two finger tap does not subtract a stroke as it does in iOS, use tap and hold instead
- Horizontal round summary view is not yet supported
- Only US course directories are available (over 2700 courses)
See something you like?
The dropdown menu and persistent list selections are available as plugins from the Sencha Market (https://market.sencha.com/). Help yourself and make something great!

Reason: Patched and removed a known limitation for "An incomplete course directory download may require an app reset"
Update: Thanks for the feedback @realjax. The login issue you encountered was because I did not regression test that release (bad, I know), but it's fixed now and available in the Play store. I also added some help text on the game setup and course directory download screens to address your points about "overall flow".
As for the performance issue, there is not much I can do about that :o(
FYI, my app running in the mobile Chrome browser outperforms the same running in PhoneGap... which means that when Google starts using the Chrome engine for native web views, we'll get a performance bump

@realjax, I really appreciate your notes. I put that dropdown in there to hint that other countries are coming to Discasaurus soon. However, without a clear indication that it's not ready yet, it leaves the user dissappointed/confused/frustrated (as you experienced).
The next update will hide that menu button, and it won't come back until the other regions are actually available. Lesson learned.
Discasaurus for Android is getting better! I worked on the latest update for almost a year, but it fixes all of the issues previously mentioned here, and introduces some new capabilities, including:
- No profile/registration required
- Map and directions to nearby courses (native)
- Now available for Canada, Australia, Finland, Japan, Australia and 10 other countries
Feedback is appreciated :o)
