Has anyone found a good scouting app for iPhone ?

Has anyone found a good, updated scouting app for the 2018 Powerup game that works on iPhones or a good scouting sheet ?

FRC Spyder? It's not an app that you can input values into, but it will show the schedule and the teams within each competition. I found it really helpful to use if for scouting setup before competition begins. It will also update and show score and other info. I don't know if it is updated for 2018 yet (or if it will), but I used it last year for set up!
If you have the resources, you could create an app for your self. We are using Kindle Fires and Android Studio to do scouting this year. We have a paper/pencil version. If you want to see it, just DM me!

We make our own app every year, although it's on android. I recommend making an excel template for all the information you want, then print it out for the scouts to fill out during the match.

Re: Has anyone found a good scouting app for iPhone ?

We've done Excel sheets during competition before. Bit of a pain copying over data from one computer to another at the end of the day.

Paper is easiest to set up, but a real pain to consolidate.

Last year we used AppSheet to turn google forms into on-device apps. Works with Android and iOS.
CD search for appsheet: https://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/s...archid=8791312

You can set up the app to allow for photos (great for pit scouting), live summaries of certain data, and download it all as a spreadsheet later.

Issue: it uses data to update live (But you can set the app up to do a delayed synch), and it costs money (think it was $10/month for unlimited users)

We have a website called ScoutingFRC.com where you can export data in a CSV format for analysis in Excel. We also have a page where you can see live stats for teams(useful for drive team strategies!).

Re: Has anyone found a good scouting app for iPhone ?

Personally I've found that paper scouting sheets are almost always easier than an app. Apps I've used in the past have ended up having sharing issues with files and don't have much in the way of flexibility when it comes to pit scouting notes and what not. With paper sheet you can design them in excel however you want, and can write notes in the margins. The printing process can be a bit of a pain but it's half an hour to an hour of prep for each event (if you do it right) and then you're good to go.

Re: Has anyone found a good scouting app for iPhone ?

If you literally just need a scouting system, paper -> manual input into an excel sheet is about as rudimentary as it gets, but you might lose some reliability with manually inputting every robot's performance over and over. (it's tedious).

But, that's not your goal here. The more you automate the system, the more consistent it's going to be, and the better the data that you'll get.

Apps like FRC Spyder + The Blue Alliance's website will give you a lot of information about the field and matches at a high level, but nothing in by-robot detail. For a rudimentary pick list, you can't do much better.

I'd recommend looking into a platform-independent scouting app (e.g. a webpage) that creates a csv or other file that you can import into excel. There's a few that have been advertised in the Scouting subform that should fit your use case

Good luck!

Re: Has anyone found a good scouting app for iPhone ?

I'll be making a version of my old team's scouting app, https://github.com/michaelwm/scoutworks-forms for FIRST POWER UP. It's written in Xamarin Forms so it's available iOS and Android version. It's not the prettiest app but my team loved using it, and hopefully you find the POWER UP version useful (once it's out!)
