good point... unless you have to do it a bunch.. but maybe that isn't a realistic thing here

I tend to like functionality available even if it isn't super matured just yet.. so for this case, being able to utilize a CSV is better than not at all... it may come to pass that people up the demand for this and you are thusly motivated to mature the spec so that less manipulation is required...

I think app developers should just use the free score submission functionality

I think just the fact that you are making this is very interesting...

now if you can recommend to me some SharePoint developers, Architects or even .net developers I'd be beside myself

I think we're moving outside my scope at this point

I am contemplating compiling an ios app.. but have a question..
Submitting scores is free.. but to submit scores, you need to include [course name, holes played, and which tees] which needs to be pulled from the site, since it cannot be cached. That data request would be part of the subscription?

Second you cannot cache the data, so I can't make an offline mode to store scores, and then allow them to submit later when on wifi?

course id is optional (course name is not one of the variables). Holes played doesn't need to be pulled from the site, that's just the number of holes the person played. The required fields are indicated in the documentation.

As for the caching thing, that only applies to certain data pulled from the site. Scores entered by users into your app don't fall under that definition so you can send the scores to the site in whatever manner you wish.

As timg said, you don't need to pull any information to submit a score. If you want the score to reference a course then you will need to pull a list of courses to get the course's id. If you want a user to be able to pick a course when not connected to the internet, save course information on the device when the user is connected. The user could also save their scores to the device when offline and then when they have an internet connection they can pick from a list of courses to submit the score for.

Nice job, timg!

Ok found it.. I was looking under Terms of Use which says
Quote:
5. Restrictions

You agree that you will not, and will not assist or enable others to:

cache, record, pre-fetch, or otherwise store any portion of the DGCourseReview Content, or attempt or provide a means to execute any "bulk download" operations;
I find now where it shows in API Display Requirements
Quote:
Exceptions to prohibitions:
You may store hole information and certain course information (dgcr id, name, city, state and country) on a user's mobile device. It may not be stored in a central database.

I should probably move that section to the Terms of Use.
