iGolf is an application designed for golfing enthusiasts. It uses the GPS hardware in phone and provides a detailed map for the golf courses. Users can search for the courses in their area based on their current location or keywords. A detailed map with greens, tee, water etc. is generated in real time. Users can check distance to the front, center and back of the green from anywhere on the course. Player scorecard and shot tracker feature are also included. Further on, users can read reviews about courses, share their experience, rate a course and so on.
We designed a custom map viewer for the application which works in very similar fashion as Google Maps. It downloads the map tiles from Amazon S3 bucket and creates a map for the course. All standard features like kinetic scroll, zoom in-out etc. are also provided here.
