Every time we submit a new release of our app to Apple we include a description of what is new in that particular release. Many times this can be described as just “bug fixes”, but when we submitted this brand new version of GameBook we ended up writing “Actually we have updated everything in the […]

Over the years, Kalle and I have discussed on several occasions what constitutes a successful golf round. There are factors that we can’t really affect like the weather, the course you are playing and the people you are playing with. However, the most important one of all is the score and the excitement the right game format can […]

We had made it to tournaments on The Challenge Tour and even The European Tour, but hadn’t really succeeded in making the final breakthrough. As it began to dawn on […]

The story of Golf GameBook began almost a decade ago. 10 years might not be a very long time in some contexts, but when it comes to anything digital the world looked very different back in 2006.
