Shave strokes off your golf scores with BreakMeter! BreakMeter is a utility for golfers to aid in "reading the break" on a green (i.e., seeing the direction the slope of the green causes the ball to turn).
Golf greens are often deceiving to the eye; what looks like a break in one direction is often straight or in the opposite direction entirely! The BreakMeter uses the iPhone's accelerometer to measure the angle and magnitude of the slope in two directions then graphically displays the slope to the player in an easy to read format.
Using BreakMeter during practice, you can train yourself to correctly recognize subtle breaks on the green which means you'll make more putts!

Pretty good but could use a few improvements
I downloaded you Break Meter app recently and I was wondering if you would consider a few items for the next release.
I've been looking for a tool like a Clinometer (minus the height measuring) but none of the App Store versions are correct. This app is very close being a green reading tool but it would need a few items to be a truly helpful. The two most important items being a north arrow to help me indicate a heading and the second would be a percentage slope (to two decimal places) option versus just the degrees.
It would be terrific if there could be a heading using 360 degrees like a compass as well. If the top of the phone is pointing toward the north it would read 0*, east 90*, south 180*, west 270*, etc. Lastly, it would be really neat if no matter which direction I laid the phone down, an arrow pointed straight uphill on the screen with the percentage slope and the differential heading from north, maybe there would be a second arrow for north.
I think this could be interrogated into your putting app to help people chart greens or an entirely new app that I think people would pay for, myself included.
Great app, anxious to try it on the course
Looks to be a great app, I've purchased it and tried it out in the house, it seems to be working very well. Not legal for use according to USGA rules, but you can use it on the practice green to see how putts are breaking, and on the real course during practice rounds. I'll probably try it out on the course after a putt, just to see which direction the putt really should have went or to test out some tricky spots on the greens for future reference.
Very good program, tried it on the course yesterday and it was bang on with its advice on break. This will soon find its way into the bags of many tour players. Now all we need is a great golf stats program that works well on the iPhone. An application that keeps us up to date on golf scores around the world would be useful as well. The iPhone and golf could turn out to be a beautifull marriage.
