Developers are getting a bad rap

This app has been very useful for me over the years. As noted in some of the other reviews in a response from the developer, this was built around the rules that were in place up through 2018 and it has been very accurate and very helpful. I hope the developer updates this to reflect the new 2019 rules as I will continue to use this app. I’ve been very pleased.

Developer Response ,

Dear CabSnob,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our app. With all the bad reviews we got over the last week it feels truly motivating to get a positive feedback for a change. Unfortunately we are currently one week late with the update on the new 2019 rules - and it will probably take us another two weeks to finalize the update - but please rest assured that we are working day and night to finalize it as fast as possible. Please accept our apologies for the delay.

Many thanks for your understanding and patience.
Kind regards,

Yves C. Ton-That

Makes the rules easy to understand

By far the best at explaining the rules in a quick, easy to use app. Perfect for on the course usage. The updates for 2019 are great.

This is not the 2019 rules!

Glad to hear the 2019 update will become available- hopefully the update will occur soon- wish I would have known prior to purchase. None the less, I will wait! Thanks
