Sports Dood Install Issues

4 12 2014

Some Google Nexus users that received the OTA update are having some unexpected behaviour with some apps, including Sports Dood apps.  Essentially, the OTA can in some instances remove the Sports Dood app and when you try to reinstall the app, you might see a 505 error.  A 505 error is caused when the app certificate of the app you are trying to install does not match the app on your device.  The issue is not caused by the Sports Dood apps incompatibility with 5.0 since they have the same certificate (Google Play also verifies this when you publish so the fact it is in the store means certificate is valid).  The issue is a bug that was introduced in Android 5.0 that calculates a mismatch in some kinds of certificate (I won’t go into details but HERE is a link to the issue).

Google has recently pushed an update for Android (version 5.0.1), read about it HERE.  I assume an OTA will be rolling out which will allow you to install the apps normally and I am hoping that it will also recover your data in the process.

A new feature is rolling out which allows you to export entire database files from the app.  This will allow you to quickly backup entire formation and play databases in one quick step.  You can place the database on drop box and re-load it quickly back in as needed.  Some new videos will be coming to recap all the latest features in the past several months.

Stack Collage

28 09 2013

Download a new app called Stack Collage available on either Android or iOS.  Among many uses of being a great tool to import photos and draw on them, you can add multiple photos into a photo stack and create super fun collages.  In addition to this, Sports Dood coaches may want to load in a bunch of plays and quickly pinch zoom into a particular play and overlay some doodles in a quick demonstration of a play.  Below is a quick screen grab showing how you can move images around via multitouch and really provide a quick and easy flexible surface of images.

Try it out, it is free
