Introducing my team's (in development) scouting app, ThunderScout

Hello Chief Delphi!
For the last six months I've been coding a scouting app for the team I'm a student on, Team 980 Thunderbots. I've decided to share it with the FIRST community in hopes that it helps people scout.

I present: THUNDERSCOUT (picture)
(note that the interface has changed since that screenshot)

It's designed to function modularly. It has the ability to scout matches before saving them either to the local device or sending it via Bluetooth to another device running the app as a Bluetooth server.

In a later version I'll be adding the ability to send your data in real time to Google Sheets (every match, not just a single export).

I'm currently working on redesigning the UI for viewing the data stored on the device, and the home screen UI.

I plan to release a beta in 2017 while I finalize the data structure for the 2017 game before releasing the app on the Play Store in time for competition events. Consider this the beginning of the "alpha" period

It's also open source and available on GitHub: https://github.com/Team980/ThunderScout-Android

Here is an APK of where it's at right now

My team's mentors and fellow students have all said really good things about the app, and I'd love to hear your feedback as well. Thanks for reading!

That is a great design, last year our team tried working on an app but it never went through, I look at this in more detail.

How are you storing your data because since we cannot use wifi we ran into the problem of where to store your data and later retrieve it.

Looks like there is a option to save to a Bluetooth server (I assume you set up a device as this server) or save the data to the device that is being used for scouting.

The data is stored in a SQLite database on the local device. No internet connection is currently required for any of the app's features.

I was looking into Intel's open source Multi OS Engine, but no promises right now.

The developer fee is also much higher.

I've prepared an alpha page on the Google Play store where I'll be publishing updates to the alpha binaries concurrently with Github!

To opt into the alpha, go to this link:

Getting an error when I go to download the app. Maybe it just hasn't been fully published yet?

Yeah, Google Play doesn't seem to want to show the app page to people in the testing program. Working on a fix.

EDIT: The listing has been fixed, but now it's showing as "incompatible with all devices"...

The 0.1.1 update should fix the Play Store beta listing.

Looks like a good app! What format does the data export in?

The 1.0 release will have a screen for sorting and viewing the data, I will be working with team members experienced with ranking robots and who would be picking robots for eliminations to design the view. An old, sad, bad version of this view is currently integrated into the This device screen.

A future release will support Google Sheets, allowing you to upload your data in real time. (I need to work out the kinks, it's not as stable as the rest of the app.)

I'm open to adding more methods of export in the future if you feel the app is missing something.

We do a lot of analysis in Excel with our data, so it'd be great to have a way to export as an xls or csv or something.
