Thanks for the support everyone!

Yep, there is an info button currently in the bottom right corner of the main screen that tells the user how to use the app, but doesn't quite explain what the app does to people unfamiliar with tracking S.O. competitions.

There will be a large update coming soon that should include an instructions page, a new look for viewing results, and much more!

There is no Android yet because of fragmentation issues (but hopefully I can make one soon). The current app works on any iDevice with iOS 5.0 and up. The next major version of the app (mentioned above) will be for iOS 5.1 and up, but everyone with 5.0 can update. The next major version will also be iPad optimized.

Hey,

Quick update for you guys. I've been working hard on SO Tracker 2.0, which will be a free upgrade to the current app on the day that iOS 6 comes out in a couple months. The app will continue to support iOS 5, but a few of the advanced features are ios6 only. Some updates include an entirely new way to view statistics, the app will save your data once you quit out and allow you to resume later, and the biggest feature: you can share scores directly from the app, both per event and overall scores at anytime during the awards ceremony to keep friends and family updated! You will be able to share via Facebook, Twitter, text message, or email (though people not upgrading to iOS6 will only be able to share with Twitter).

Guess not. Maybe it is too early to think about the competitions. Can it be used in Invitationals?

Thanks for trying it out! I hope it works well for you (I created it). My entire team used it last year while testing it out, and it worked well (though you may say I'm biased)!

Ironically, it was approved on the App Store at 9pm the night before Nationals last year, but I was able to contact two other teams with people that I knew, and they also said it worked perfectly. I'm still adding things, and definitely open to suggestions.

It works with all invitationals, both B and C divisions. Let me know if you have any questions!

Just a reminder, this app can be used for invitationals as well as the "real" competitions!

I think it would be awesome if you could rank the top 100 teams based on previous scores at lower levels of the competition and the year before.
