'Frisbee Forever' Coming to iOS

The Wham-o Frisbee is about to fly from your fingertips into the App Store. Indeed, that fabulous flying disc will launch with an iOS app in May.

The app is being developed for Wham-O by software developer Kiloo. The Frisbee Forever app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad is said to offer iOS gamers "unique challenges and obstacles in a rich complete 3D environment." What exactly that means is shrouded in mystery.

The only details released via the press release (below) is that Frisbee Forever will offer gamers 100 levels in "lush, colorful worlds" along with 100 different Frisbee disc models. At least it sounds like the game won't involve throwing your iDevice around.

It's unclear if or how much the app will cost. More details when it launches in May, full press release below.

Hmmm... well ok a Frisbee game on an iPhone, really seems like a mega development to me, what about you guys? Frisbee usage has generally required going outside at the least. So supplementing Frisbee with a game on a phone might not have the same attributes.

Disc golf which some new folk call Frisbee golf is gaining popularity quite a bit lately. It fun to play and free on practically all courses..anyone stating out quickly realizes that it is whole a lot different throwing a real golf flying disc as opposed to a Frisbee. Maybe Apple is trying to catch the Buzz of disc golf which is played outside.

I happen to be an avid disc golfer and no we do not call it Frisbee golf.Anyone that throws or tries to 'rip' a golf disc quickly realizes that it's a whole lot different than throwing a Frsibee

Disc golf has been gaining popularity in many areas the last few years and it is free to play most courses.

Some folk like to get out side and toss an Aerobie flying ring about 10.00 which is pretty cool cause if you can a toss regular Frisbee across the 60 feet to your pal, you can easily fly this thing 100 yards in a field or on a beach.

You do not need to wait until May and go to the Apple Store to gain the "multitude of achievements", you can simply go outside and experience the real thing now.

iConfess  for  I do no know

How do they propose to implement the various elements of the games such as fresh air walking, running, trash- talking, teasing, baiting,and of course cold beverages  other head games which make the experience so much more enjoyable.

Socialize with real folks in person?

Maybe the marketing and history overview will be enough for some ....oh well

Yeah rrplay I used to play disc golf even had some league action etc only semi pro for me though. My old friend Richard plays pro though, and still actively competes, though not as active as he used to be. Either way you cannot replace that. It is kind of like telling a pro player he can now only play madden. He would get nothing physical out of that, mental maybe, but to an athlete it is the challenge as well as the competition. For Frisbee it is being outside (especially in ultimate or disc golf) as well as hanging out with your friends, and then skill practiced developed skill.

hey rapid1 nice to know you used to play some disc golf and def agree that there is big dif playing pro and playing more casual semi pro tourneys .It's possible in my neck of the woods to play leagues about 3 times a week, best shot doubles & lot of the guys playing know each other.Most of the tournament players share a lot with other 'mutt' casual players like myself ..funny thing is that when they give you some pointers ..the next time they  see you play they will know if you practiced or paid any attention.

A bud of mine Chris was jogging and playing disc lost 40 lbs 2 summers ago and we were airing out that Aerobie disc from end-zone to end-zone on a football field about 2 weekends ago.

But this is a Apple app news thread so last summer a lot of the local community college guys I play with  have Samsung phones or others .So they are not likely to be interested in this iPhone app.I tend not to take any cellphones on any golf course or long cycling rides.

in the meantime..we got a Springing Up For Springtime & Summer going on that me be a bit more suitable to continue  Ultimate Frisbee disc golf the BUZZ Cheetahs Leopards Sharks Rocs Aviars and more Smile

Ya know I think I might start again. I would need to pick up a new set of disc's, but it would be fun to take the fam down to little five anyway. Maybe when it is not a rainy stormy weekend soon we will run down there. There are several course near to me as well as spread around the Atlanta area. I might even be able to get Sarah into it. Either way it would be a fun activity to get us outside on a regular basis. I might even look Richard (better know as Dickie) Bocoras up, although that is kind of a stretch as it has been years since I have seen him. I do as I said earlier know he still plays pro/semi pro though or did not very far back.

We had a couple of pretty decent days this week and it was possible to get out and play a bit in the late afternoons. Yep always nice to get out and play! saw some of the guys that play in Monday nite league  they play best shot double par is of source all 3's and they average about 14 under par to win.a bit too rich for me and try to get out before they play and pic up some great tips  I can sometimes scamble bout for 6-8 under but gotts make all the putts inside 30 feet. .

Also mentioned to other playing partners that Apple was doing this Frisbee app thing .most seem like I was pulling their chain but as you know like some of the golf games..re:club or disc selection can make or break a shot .
anyhow rapid1 hope you can get out and play a bit with you r family even with your new venture going on cause it one of the few things that you can get and play that's free and playing even a crowded course like mine was on some days and times you can skip holes etc to experience the social fun.

I usually get out to play disc golf about 3 -4 times a week because there is a rather challenging course that's free to play and the 1st tee is a mile walk from my door. & mentioned a bit about this app to some while playing with mixed opinions as expected

 

I would rather be looking at this:

 

a bit more like it ! and more posted here in the Springing up for Springtime and Summer thread
