Your•bot Announces Version 4.0 of the Most Advanced Golf Tournament Scoring App for iOS 8

tour•bot™ and tour•botPro™ have been turbo-charged with new features and capabilities that allow users to run the most-advanced tournaments possible. Upgraded with powerful new features, such as internet-based score sharing and internet-based tournament leader boards, your•bot continues to bring the power of advanced app development to all tour•bot / tour•botPro users with this FREE upgrade.


Chicago, IL, USA, September 23, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - your•bot™ and developer James Prete announces version 4.0 of the your•bot's golf tournament scoring app, tourbot4 (v4.0 will be available soon on the iTunes App Store) for devices running iOS v8.x or later.


NEW - iOS 8 REWRITE
The tourbot4 app has been completely rewritten to take advantage of all of Apple's innovation included in iOS 8. A clean visual appearance with a strong emphais on the application information is the hallmark of iOS 8 apps. iOS 8 also provides support for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and tourbot4 automatically takes advantage of the new screen sizes these devices offer.

NEW - PLAYER FLIGHTING & FOURSOME ASSIGNMENTS
tourbot4 includes an advanced set of player management tools not found in any other Mobile app for golf tournament management. Flight options include: By Tee Assignment, in 2, 3, or 4 quantitles, and manual assignment giving the tournament director full control over player flighting. Foursome assignment allows the tournament director to assign up to five players to a start time with the option of shotgun start.

NEW - IN-APP PURCHASES OF SCORING REPORTS
tourbot4 offers 15 in-app purchase options for advanced tournament reporting, no other mobile app offers this much.  Pricing ranges from $0.99/USD to $6.99/USD.

INTERNET LEADER BOARDS
Internet Leader boards and Tournament Score Synchronization is built into tourbot4!  Now users can post results from within the app to the GolfScoring.co server and instantly share them with their friends and competitors (internet-access required). Live and real-time!  Users may decide when to post scores or they can let the app post scores automatically. Let anyone waiting in the clubhouse check the results as frequently as they wish on the server: Golfscoring.co/leaderboard.html. Tournament participants can also quickly review the tournament's current status at any time either using a long-press touch on an uploaded tour selected from the "Tours" screen or by downloading all players' scores for an event and when scoring is complete, report the results using any and all games reports available (over 27 report variations are available). The folks at your•bot have made this new feature the most seamless and efficient scoring sharing capability available to any app on any platform. Battery impact is negligible. If access to the internet is lost, no problem! The Apps will automatically recover when the internet becomes available and will update all missing information as soon as possible.

PLAYER FILTERING USING FOURSOME ASSIGNMENTS
Version 4.0 also introduces Foursome assignments to the Player Filtering tools. Now, preassigned Foursome assignments may be quickly selected to focus the scoring screen on just the players you are playing with. It takes just seconds to setup and can be instantly removed to reveal all players.

"SCORING SMARTS"
Finally, to ensure perfect scoring, Your•bot has added "Scoring Smarts" to the apps. Now, when users enter the scoring screen for an event, tourbo4 will automatically check all players for proper handicap index setup, and all course setup information for completeness. If any of the critical setup-items are missing, tourbot4 will warn the user, giving them a chance to correct the information before entering the scores. In addition, Your•bot has added a "fix" utility to previously entered scores to allow new player and course information to be taken into consideration for calculating scoring results for a player.
