Before I heard about UDisc, I snickered whenever I saw people using their smartphones to score rounds of disc golf. I could not imagine taking time to enter scores on a phone after every hole. Fast forward a couple years, and I can’t imagine a world without UDisc- easily the top disc golf app, period. With (a good deal) more users than the PDGA has active members, UDisc leads the pack and as far as I know there is no close 2nd.
Many others besides me have realized that using a disc golf app while playing does not have to be as intrusive as it would seem. I love to collect data about my performance that I can pore over later in search of ways to get better, which is what UDisc lets me do. And now, with the latest release, UDisc has taken the principle of enhancing the game without intruding on it to new heights. The cloud capabilities let users get access to their data on all their devices, back it up in the cloud, and use that same cloud to share their data (and therefore their experiences) with others. I love the direction they’re headed, and see it as a tool to get more fun out of disc golf (who thought that was even possible?) It also makes the game more appealing to the growing number of people who actually like their web-enabled devices to be involved in everything they do.

When you analyze data, you “pore” over it, not “pour” over it….just a thought…
Thanks Ron, you are quite right. I have had a swimming pool of writing tasks poured over me lately and perhaps rushed a bit too much.
We have been using Easy Scorecard for the last couple of years, and it allows for handicaps, whereas Udisc doesn’t. Handicaps level the playing field between men and women, thus allowing couples to compete together, and the woman having a chance to win the round. This encourages more women to play casual rounds, as a result, and perhaps even fall in love with the game.
