We didn't deem this a necessary option largely because the vast majority of golfers play a relatively small number of golf courses frequently. I've had Scorecard for a number of years, play frequently, and still have less than 50 courses in my app. I'll often look them up online and enter them in a few days before I play them.

Our iPhone app was built for two reasons. First, so we could learn a bit about iPhone development by building an app. Second, as advertising - people might see the app and look up our partner app. It's free and yet contains 95% as much code as the desktop version, and it just enters rounds - it doesn't do charts or graphs or stats or course entry. It wouldn't be free if we added some of those things.
Unless I'm playing by myself, I don't use my iPhone for entering my round. I'd almost just as soon enter it manually as launch the app on the iPhone and sync.
So I agree, it would be nice to enter a round as you go, but then again think of how much of a pain that would be to enter 18 holes with par, handicap, yardage... It'd be a lot more tedious on the phone than on your computer.
