* How does it work?
A golf course is predominantly made up of browns, greens, and blacks (mostly reflecting from dirt, grass, bushes, twigs, etc).
Golf Ball Finder uses a special blue filter that eliminates all visible wavelengths except those at the blue end of the spectrum. This special filter virtually eliminates light reflecting off grass and the dark objects of the underbrush, thus high lighting white golf balls. Most dark objects show up only as outlines while the white golf ball appears to glow with a slight blue tint.
Some comments emailed to us:
"Works better than the Glasses"
“Found my ball and two others this weekend, Great App!”
“Finding my ball meant no penalty and I beat my friend, he was not happy. Keep up the good work”
And here's the best bit - just find ball and this app has paid for itself!
* How to use?
Simple, start the app, aim the camera at where you think your golf ball might be and the blue filter cancels out the green of the foliage and grass and highlights your white ball. The ball will be instantly more visible on the screen.

What's New in Version 4.1
iOS 9 + Improvements
Waste of time...
This is the worst app I have ever downloaded, and I am including all Free apps. Ball Finder does not work at all! Maybe it worked when it was tested in a controlled setting, but the reality on most courses is that the sun is too bright for you to be able to see your screen when adjusting the filters. I feel the score card was added to this app, just so people couldn't complain that they paid 99 cents for an app that does not work. And to think this current version has been updated for iOS 9... How bad was the last version to warrant an update ??
Waste of money
I have never downloaded a piece of crap like this ....can barely find a ball in my back yard within 6 feet...I've adjusted everything
