Use Golf Leaderboard for your iPhone to keep track of your golf scores

by Omnifarious on Aug.31, 2010, under Business Tools

I went golfing with a friend last weekend and he showed me a new iPhone app called Golf Leaderboard. It’s a free app that turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a golf scorecard (link to download). The Golf Leaderboard app was really easy to use. He put in the name of the course we were on and our names. Then the app created a scorecard for us to use. We entered the par for each hole, and the number of strokes we each took. Golf Leaderboard did the rest, and by the end of the game our electronic scorecard automatically tallied up the scores. The app always creates a scorecard with 18 holes, to record playing across a full golf course, but it can finish and calculate the final scores at any point.

The app also gave us an option to Email the entire scorecard to our friends. The app saved the scorecard for us, too, so that we can compare how much better we do the next time. And, if we play on the same course again, the app remembers the par values and automatically fills them in.

I think it’s a fun app to have. Next time when you’re at the golf course for a business meeting or pleasure, forget the paper scorecards and golf pencils - keep track of your scores through the Golf Leaderboard iPhone app.

How to locate restaurant menus on your iPhone

by statusmonger on Aug.26, 2009, under Business Meals, Business Tools

Ever been on the road and wanted to check out a restaurant’s menu before actually physically going in?  Of course you could do some research online beforehand but what if you just left the client site or hotel and was looking for a place to eat with decent selection and prices?

Well if you have an iPhone you are in luck!  I recently checked out a new app for the iPhone called Unimenu.  It’s main goal is to be able to look up menus for restaurants in an easy manner.  You can view a restaurant’s location/address, look at what items they offer with prices, and directly call the restaurant from the app.  Additionally, it has some neat features as well.

Let’s say I’m craving some Japanese food in LA.  I can filter by cuisine in LA (it locates the metro area I’m in automatically) and select the “Near Me” button.  It then lists out the closest 10 restaurants near me serving Japanese cuisine, which then I can look at each menu and restaurant information accordingly.

Also, if ever you find yourself ordering from the same restaurant frequently, you can add that restaurant’s menu to your favorites and you’ll always have it handy, even if you don’t get any reception from crappy AT&T (or T-Mobile).

Lastly, I think the most creative feature of the app is the ability to add specific items from a menu or menus to a list, afterwards which you can email out if need be.  This is particular handy if you are ordering for a big group of people: you can just pass around your iPhone and have people select what they want.  Of course, you may want to wipe down your iPhone after you get it back.  One day I hope they come up with an iPhone app that de-sanitizes the phone.

Right now the app supports New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Chicago (the app also allows you to filter by neighborhoods specific to those cities).  I do most of my traveling between New York (city of blinding lights), SF (I left my heart there), LA (California dreamin’), and Chicago (my kind of town) so this app is perfect for me (who’d wanna go anywhere else anyhow?).  They also have a corresponding website at www.unimenu.com for those without iPhones. So for all of you who have ever walked into an unknown restaurant and been caught off guard by the prices or selection of the menu, check this app out.
