TD contest scoring using smart phones & iPads

Does anyone know if there is an application to enter contest scores on smart phones & iPads?

Check with Jim Monaco in CO, I believe they have and the guys in Turkey that ran the J worlds three years ago used a homegrown system as well.

The easy answer might be to use the "Numbers" app from Apple. It works on both iPads and iPhones, is relatively cheap, and works just like (better, in my opinion) MS Excel.

Maybe that would work? Other than that, with as many apps as there are out there, I'm sure that there may be others that are specifically designed for the task?

Cheers,

Rob

I made one for ALES that is a Man-on-Man format but could be modified for TD scoring. It works with Excel, Open Office and Numbers on the iPad.

It's FREE. The spreadsheet is protected but without a password so you may edit as you wish. There are hidden cells that need unhiding and the fixed matrix could just be deleted.

It's at www.TailwindGliders.com on the "Articles/Files" page.

Please share if you do modify it.

Thanks
Curtis

Thanks for the replies. Jim Monaco may have some goood pointers.
I'm working with FileMaker Pro on my Mac. There is a mobile version, Filemaker Go that should allow mobile data entry. I was hoping that someone had already created a db for TD contests that I could incorporate or copy.

You might check GliderScore for a database ... I think that software is MS Access based.
