Yes I have started transferring. Have high school seasons transferred and now am trying to figure how many leagues I want to create before transferring the travel ball games. If anyone is silly enough to also try doing this, I did find that creating the leagues and enabling only them before transferring is an important step. I didn't get that memo on the first season before I transferred it so I had to go back and add the individual games to the leagues I created after I had already transferred the games from that first season. That got the games in the correct leagues but I am not sure if it got the players. I really only have one player I really care about so it was easy enough to get her in the correct league. Second season transfer I learned you only want the leagues you created for that season enabled when you transfer or you have to go back to the individual games and correct that mistake. Going back to the individual games to correct is a pain because you have to start at the top and scroll down to the bottom for each and every game to get to the game you need to make corrections on. When you have 270 games loaded that is a pain. It would be nice if the game manager screen would hold its position. Also I ran into the issue of the league screen blacking out and I couldn't see the leagues until I touched the screen.

Yes the inheritance of leagues during data share can be helpful

If you decide to go to iPhone, you will like the advanced league assignment interface. from league manager, you can click on a league and then check mark all the teams, players or games that way. Also, If you assign a team to a league in iPhone, It will ask if you want to assign the rostered players..

Ok I have transferred all the games I would like to my present phone. I am guessing I should do an export even if I may not have players and teams exactly assigned correctly to leagues yet. The games and teams are there and the leagues are in place. I assume these can be still edited at any time after exporting. So when I do this export should I check every league that I now have set up in league manager or is it ok to have just the "all" and/or "default" league checked? I ask because I have now created some new names for leagues for the transferred games that aren't the same as on my old old phone.

Option > export updates the admin web site with a copy of your devices database (aka a cloud backup)

( it does not care what leagues are checked at the time, checking and unchecking leagues only impacts your handheld device).

Late replying. Thanks to the help from OhioTex, Got all the games that I wanted on one phone but hadn't bought a new phone yet until this week when my most recent android phone with all the games on it decided to go for a swim! (Dont' ask how that happened, phone was pathetically deceased!) So I now by necessity have a new iPhone! I am hoping that I can get those games into the new phone. I can still get on the admin website and can see the ID's for the previous two phones and I have the password for the oldest phone. But got no idea what the password was for the ID for the phone that drowned! Will I need that to import the data into my new iphone? Do I just need to e-mail support to get that? When I look at the note on data sharing to a new phone it would appear I can just do that from the website with no need for passwords, but wanted to make sure what the steps were before downloading the iscore app to the new iphone. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

If i interpret your state correctly, you had registered both your old android phones to a common email address (great) (and can access them both on admin web site by that email) ..so if you have exported the devices before lost.. you won't need the drown phone or its password to copy its contents to a new device.


To copy "old 'drown' phone" iscore database to new iphone .. do the below steps..
(this will take less than 5 minutes to do from start to end)


On iphone,
    1) download iscore app to new iphone and launch

    2) Set your new phone up on admin server by:
    Iscore > option > admin web site > set password

    3) register new iphone version to your common email address
    iScore > option > register >

    4) do an option > export
On web
    5) Log into my.iscorecentral.com using your common email and password

    6) go to account tab > click manage data> choose the device id ( drown phone) to copy from and the new iphone device id to copy to > Execute...
    Here are screen shots of this step if needed .. http://iscoresports.com/baseball/kb/faq ... lldata.php



On iphone,
    7) download the new data base
    iscore > option > import > yes ...

    8) restart iscore

DONE -
Welcome to iscore for iphone..
you will find very similar to android version with a few look and feel updates and few different user interface methods. bt same core scoring mechanics.

OK one question remains... you hope! There are two iscore app choices on the App store. one from Faster than Monkeys and one from Sports Illustrated Play. Any reason to choose one over the other? When I started out 7 years ago it was Faster than Monkeys I worked with as I recall.

It matters not, same code for each. Pick one amd go

The history ...
Iscore baseball predates ipads..and umiversal apps (apps that work on both iphones and ipads). iscore launched the second version when ipads came out (day 1). At the time apple did not have a way for existing owners of iscore to get ipad version for free. So developers choose to update both versions over time so original customers not left behind. For a period the original app was iphone only and the second app universal.- ipad and iphone. Around version 4, both versions beae universal

Thaniks again, How much does it matter if I switch step 2 and 3 around from your previous instructions? I registered before I set up admin website. It seems to be OK, but I put in a different password when I registered than what is listed on the phone on the admin website. So I'm not changing or doing anything else yet, to make sure I didn't screw something up. The new device is listed on my account when I go into the website and when I hit register on the phone it shows my other two devices there too and indicates it is registered to me.

you are good to go on steps 1-3 . ( aka you can Log into my.iscorecentral.com with an email address and password and have all 3 devices listed on the Account tab. ) . the password associated with a device ID does not have to the same as the password associated with the email address . they are independent user name/passowrd combinations. just like each device does not have to have same password.

steps 4-8 will take less than 5 minutes. and your new iPhone will have all the data (players, teams, games and leagues) from the drown phone.
