To the right, you'll see an in-progress version of the iPhone companion application to our cross-platform desktop application Scorecard. It's a "companion app" because it relies on the desktop app for the actual statistics. The iPhone app will simply let you keep your stats while you're playing golf and will sync them back to the […]

Oh how I wish Apple's App Store had this feature: The Android Market business and program policies also include an item that says users can return any application for a full refund within 24 hours of the time of purchase. In the absence of a trial version of applications, this offer will let users return […]

Apple "announced" today that it was dropping the iPhone Developer NDA: To Our Developers We have decided to drop the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for released iPhone software. We put the NDA in place because the iPhone OS includes many Apple inventions and innovations that we would like to protect, so that others don't steal our […]

Yippee!

Rivet 1.3 Now Available

Rivet, Cynical Peak's software for sharing movies, music, and photos from your Mac to your Xbox 360, has been updated to version 1.3. This is a bug fix and feature addition release: Added the ability to only display unplayed podcasts. The "Share checked songs only" option no longer requires the iTunes database to be reparsed. […]

BioChart for iPhone

The first Cynical Peak iPhone (and iPod Touch) app: BioChart. $1.99. A bit of a test, but for under two bucks, hey, enjoy.

I won't say what it is, but Brad and I have been working on an iPhone application at the target price of $1.99. It's not Scorecard for the iPhone (that's coming out later), and it's not really much of anything, but we're "testing the waters" of sorts with this app, and for under two bucks, […]

Rivet, Cynical Peak's software for sharing movies, music, and photos from your Mac to your Xbox 360, is now available as version 1.2. This is a bug fix and feature addition release: Added support for Aperture. Fixed the silent quit issue. Fixed an issue with parsing iTunes libraries. Fixed an possible exception when parsing media. […]

As promised, Scorecard 1.4 is now available for download, demo, and update from the Cynical Peak website. This version is a fairly significant update in terms of new features and statistics and nagging bugs: Added a "Putt Accuracy by Distance" table to the statistics. Added a "Total Distance of Putts Made" statistic to the Putting […]

Rivet, Cynical Peak's software for sharing movies, music, and photos from your Mac to your Xbox 360, will see a 1.1 release tomorrow that fixes quite a few things and improves several others. Added better support for video podcasts and TV Shows in iTunes. They will now be sorted into subfolders based on the show […]

No, Apple has not suddenly added the "over the wire" synching, but I believe we may once again be exploring the possibility of doing Scorecard for the iPhone. If we do it, it'll likely be over WiFi, and I'm still not certain how many users that will cut out, but I suppose they can always […]

Scorecard is getting updated to version 1.4 in the next few weeks. New stats include some putting stats, a few small bug fixes, and some more putting stats. We're also adding penalties and "total distance of putts made" to the "Best vs. Worst" table. We're also re-considering our stance on iPhone development: we may just […]

Several people on the Cynical Peak forums have asked for Rivet to run as a system-level service so that they can access their media when they're logged out. There are a few problems with that request, not the least of which are: Whose iTunes and iPhoto libraries do you parse when nobody's logged in? How […]

As of right now, Cynical Peak has no plans to add a mobile version of Scorecard even for the simple task of entering in round statistics while you're on the golf course. Why? Apple still has not provided a way to sync via the one method every iPhone and iPod Touch user is guaranteed to […]

Scorecard 1.3 is now available for download for both Mac and Windows! The main star of this release is the new "Best vs Worst" table in the stats window. The new table presents a comparison of key performance indicators which allow you to quickly and easily see what part of your game goes wrong when […]
