ScoreGeek either hangs when scoring, or reports that the app does not have enough storage space. What can I do to stop this?

  • This problem is related to the type of database used, called LocalStorage, which has a limit of only 5MB.

    In ScoreGeek 1.4 the bug will unfortunately result in the app hanging when you save your scores.

    In ScoreGeek 1.5+ the app will provide a notification about the error and direct you to a tool that can help move or remove photos which are taking up a large amount of space.

    Some versions of ScoreGeek 1.5 have fixed the problem by using a different database called IndexedDb which has no storage limit, but IndexedDb is not available on all OSes. Here is the breakdown by OS:

    -Android 4.4+: IndexedDb
    -Android 4.3 and less: LocalStorage
    -iOS: LocalStorage (iOS 8+ supports IndexedDb but is too buggy as of iOS 8.3)
    -Windows Phone: IndexedDb
    -FirefoxOS: IndexedDb
    -Browser: most modern browsers support IndexedDb

    An update of ScoreGeek for iOS is ready to be released as soon as Apple fixes the bugs. Android users will need to update to Android 4.4+ to take advantage.

    Until then, using ScoreGeek 1.5+, you can work around the problem like this:

    1) Go to Settings > Delete Stuff > Cleanup Tool for help moving any photo data from app storage (5mb limit) to device storage (unlimited), which may fix the problem immediately. This tool runs automatically the first time you use ScoreGeek 1.5.

    2) Backup your ScoreGeek data, clear the database, and use a fresh copy of ScoreGeek until your OS supports IndexedDb (at which point you can import the backup again). To do so, go to Settings > Import and Export > Export CSV and make a full backup. Keep the export somewhere safe and use Settings > Delete Stuff > Delete Entire Database to create a fresh copy of ScoreGeek.

  • Hi !
    I am facing this issue with iOS 10 and version 1.7 of your app. I just recorded my 190th game and the cleanup tool didn't help... any solution ?
