Ratings and Reviews
App functionality is weak at times
I have experienced several “simple functionality” issues during my 1st 3 rounds with the App = crashes requiring rebooting my iphone, lockup when trying to use the layup function (sometimes fixed itself after a few minutes of “ignoring the problem” i.e. = didn’t use the App & had to guess on distances to preferred landing zone... BAD), difficulty “finding” simple features like “Tee selection” for the round (how about an option in settings for “preferred tee” - if the tee is NOT SELECTED at the start of the round it seems to be IMPOSSIBLE TO CHANGE = BAD... some examples of a need for a more FLEXIBLE & EASIER TO NAVIGATE interface.
I don’t want to be a rocket scientist to figure out “HOW” to find “WHERE” & “when” to make a change - frustrating, on an otherwise good App with some very useful information on the “Hole GPS screen”! However, I am not yet convinced that this info is in fact accurate & useful, ex. = “plays like x yards”, helpful a bit, but sometimes bordering on “NO that isn’t going to work & my decision for club selection actually did work”.
Bottom Line... Functionality of GPS is fast, but somewhat inconsistent on reliability. User interface needs to be improved for “Setting changes” = more flexible? Layup feature, especially, needs improvement on functionality & reliability of loading - I want the answer NOW, not a few minutes from now when the players following are getting irritated!!!
Missing one feature
I have used this app for a full year and have recommended it to all my buddies. It is a great app! I would rate this app with 5 stars except I think it needs one feature added. I would like to be able to manually enter club distances. I sometimes forget to tag a club or I fail to finish the distance until I move to the next shot. I often know the distance, but just don't get it entered. Being able to manually enter my distances would ensure that I get more accurate club data. Please add this feature.
Additionally, the Apple Watch version needs some work. For instance, the app automatically goes to the scoring screen when near the green. However, if you leave that screen, to finish tracking a shot for example, there's no way to go back to the scoring screen. Also, there is no way to delete a tracked shot if you shank one and decide not to track it. If you have already entered the club, you have to delete it from your phone. In fact, I still have to keep my phone within easy reach, because the phone app version is so much more user friendly. I could not accurately score a round with just the watch.
I would also like to see the Apple Watch version use its own GPS and not the phone’s. I think this would improve the speed of the app since it’s slower than other apps I have tried.
One more thing. It would be nice if the Apple Watch version would automatically track a golf workout in the Workout app
Please upgrade. Thanks.
Developer Response ,
HI: If you would send an email to email@example.com, we will be glad to respond to your suggestions and questions. Thank you
I have tried most of them and this is the one I have landed on for the past 2 years. I have logged over 130 rounds with it so I believe i have a really good idea what the program can do. The basic app is great for scorecard a d putts per round. You can also measure your shot, but not save data. To unlock the full potential you need to upgrade to Looper. Yes their is an annual fee but if you are serious about tracking where you are going it is far cheaper than one lesson. You can track multiple stats, measure AND SAVE distances with each club in your bag. It also will give you advice on shots based on wind conditions and using average distances charted (be careful and dont use in usga events). I have found yardage’s are spot in although if Verizon is your carrier sometimes a few yards off from time to time but that is Verizon not the program. All in All i have found this to be top of the class in this space !!!
