Seeking Scorecard 2.0 Beta Testers  

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
As many of you know, Scorecard (or here) has a 2.0 release coming out shortly with nine-hole support and graphs of stats.

I'm looking for some private beta testers for both Mac OS X and Windows to begin beta testing as early as this Wednesday or Thursday.

We're limiting our selection to about 5-10 Mac OS X users and 5-10 Windows users, all of whom should have a copy of Scorecard 1.0 already installed and, ideally, licensed. In the past, we've had some beta testers who use this just to get a sneak peek at software. If that's your intent, please don't apply.

Beta testers who are accepted and provide an acceptable amount of feedback (to show that they've done some testing) will receive a free license to 2.0. Beta testers who go above and beyond will get an extra license to give to a friend.

We're feature locked (for the most part), so it's too late to get feature requests in (though we'll consider them for 2.1, 2.2, etc.) - this is primarily about finding bugs so that we can fix them.

To apply, please copy this form and fill it out. Please don't quote this post - it's unnecessary.

Licensed Owner of Scorecard (Y/N): Yes.
Number of Rounds in Scorecard: 5 (Just started using it this year).
Operating System (and version): Windows Vista Ultimate (x64) SP1
1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: I'm a bit of a computer geek wannabe and I've built my own PC and dabbled in software stuff, so I would think I could give some decent feedback. As far as golf goes, I usually play 2-3 full 18 hole rounds per month and another 2-3 rounds of 9, so I would be inputting a decent amount of information. You and I had a running dialog a while back (Feb. `08 I believe) where we worked through some bugs and it seemed to go well.

1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: Being a new user to Scorecard I believe I can give an unbiased opinion. I will be starting a 9 hole league in one month and that was the reason I had bought Scorcard in the first place. I will also be playing 18 hole rounds on the weekends.

Number of Rounds in Scorecard: 37
Operating System (and version): Mac OS X 10.5.6
1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: Most of my rounds are 9-hole rounds, so I have been an advocate for 9-hole support since I purchased Scorecard (last spring). I think that I would be a good person to test Scorecard 2.0 because I would use this particular feature heavily during the beta period. Also, I have used the statistics Scorecard provides to help improve my game dramatically (dropped 8 strokes last summer).

Number of Rounds in Scorecard: 12 so far
Operating System (and version): Mac OS X 10.4.11
1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: Tough one. I think the current version is an excellent adjunct for the analysis of my game and would really enjoy the opportunity to beta test the upcoming version whether or not it allows me a gratis copy. I like to think I keep an eye out for bugs - I recently reported an error regarding the exporting the notes field from the app to html.

1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: I'm an analyst for Hilton Hotels Corp in IT systems development; I design and test software for a living (detailed steps to recreate bugs, testing valid conditions to regression test functionality, testing invalid conditions to determine exception handling, etc). Good eye for details in regards to numbers, I work on the revenue reporting/accounting system and validating totals/spotting strange numbers where others miss them is part of the job. Also play nine holes almost every evening after work (the reason I'm not licensed is because I'm waiting for 2.0 just for this) so this gives me a good opportunity to see how these numbers impact the roll-ups and averages in the application, I believe 9 hole rounds is one of the biggest features of the update.


Note I can also test the Windows version on XP, Vista, or Server 2008 (albeit in a virtual machine environment) if the OSX beta is full but you still need folks on the Windoze side...

1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: I currently keep very detailed statistics using my own home-made system, and have been unimpressed with statistics software I have explored in the past. If you want an unbiased (never used Scorecard) and harsh critique, I'm your guy.

1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: I play many, many rounds and sometimes I can only get in 9. I have been looking for a better way to keep my statistics and have been interested in Scorecard! I have never used this kind of software before, so I will offer a very open opinion.

1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: As someone who is a NUT about specifics and records everything, I think Scorecard would benefit my game in showing me my strengths & weaknesses. Even though I notate everything after each shot (it's a lot to compute), having a program show you where the work is needed while tracking progress is plain awesome.

1-3 Sentences about why you'd be a good choice: Love the product, use it for every legal round (about 40-50 per season), and I'm a stats nut. I print and study my stats after every round to help focus my practice time, and I've made a few suggestions on the forum, too. I routinely submit bug info for other software products I use, both as a beta tester and as a user.
