Mike Malaska, 2011 National PGA Teacher of the Year, Worldwide Director of Instruction for Nicklaus Academies. “To play your best, a golfer needs to be in regular contact with a qualified coach. Unfortunately, most golfers take infrequent lessons and bad habits can creep in between sessions. With SwingTIP MobiCoach, you can get regular lessons and “tune-ups” from a coach at anytime from anywhere, which can lead to measurable and consistent improvement of your game”

Since this is a software review I will start there but I am also going to review the hardware package as well as it is part of the system.
The software is very lacking in useful information. I have talked with the developer on the phone and was told they wanted to keep it simple. That's fine but it devalues the usefulness of the app and basically is cop out. It will tell you your face is open but not if it is 1degree or 40 degrees so you have no idea what you need to do to correct it. This is the same with every thing it tells you about your swing it is only generic statements without the numbers you need to make a change. It could easily have an advanced mode for people that want those stats.
The biggest problem I have with wingtip is hardware based. It is a pain to connect sometimes take three or four tries to get it going and I am very tech savvy. It will lose Bluetooth connection sometimes with my phone laying on the ground next to me. You must make your swing and wait for the entire process of it to analyze your swing or you risk locking up the app and have to reconnect it. If you make a swing and then try to practice swing immediately afterwards it is going to freak out and require a Bluetooth reset.
It states that it works for left ganders but it does not "work". Sure it gives you feedback but it's not correct. Swing path is sometimes backwards from what it should be depending how steep of a swing you make. It only does this with a left handed golfer and is very frustrating.
