A Challenge Appears

Okay, so at the heart of most features I build out on websites I design is unabashed self-interest.  If I have something to gain from coding something it will take much of the “work” out of it.  This time, it’s a web app, a score tracker once again but optimized for mobile devices.  I don’t think there’s an app for that™, and I won’t be the one to make it as, like I mentioned a few posts back, you have to own a Mac to code for iPhone.  And this would be cross-platform.  I might write the whole thing over the weekend, seeing as how I still have all my code from PumpScores.  The only real new work to do would be the CSS, making it usable on any device that can get web access.  I feel like if you can track your scores in the field you’re more likely to actually do it.  At least, I think so.

I’m gonna do this, like I said, for myself, so it’s initially gonna just have DDREX because I have all the DP data for it.  But it could be quite thorough.  One project I had in my head that I never did do was full.com.bo, a website that would house the only Unified Score Tracker on the web, largely crowdsourced for notecounts and so forth.  One unified scoring method.  The project never took off because I couldn’t get the name registered, .bo is Bolivia and they apparently still haven’t heard of paying by credit card or Paypal or anything even now.

So, it would start out with DDREX, and the next things to get added would be ITG/ITG2 and then probably the newer DDRs after that.  This will be project enough to keep me satisfied for a while.  When a working mobile site is up I’ll give you guys a shout.
