I use the rule book in Swedish as a referee in golf and when teaching new golfers. Really happy that Swedish was included as a language option in the app. But actually, language is automatically set to the language of the phone when it ought to be a selectable option inside the app. Fix this and it'll be ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.
Can't swipe through a set of related rules eg "Ball at rest moved" - instead we have to go back in the menu to get to the next part of the rule. This app is even more pedantic than the rules of golf itself. For ease we should be able to swipe through them. You'd think. Especially for all the parts of the same rule! It's easier than flicking through the pages of the rulebook, but having to go back and forward is not! Apps are supposed to make things simple.
Where did the English version go? Updating this app makes the English rules book dissappear to be replaced with the German version I do not need atm. Update: had to change the language of the phone from German to English. Really R&A you can't be serious?
Definitely an improvement on the 2015 version, with much clearer text font ... essential for small screens like mine. It could be improved further if users could zoom the display in and out (for example on my screen the text in the quick guide images is illegible).
Would have been 5 stars Can not move app to SD card storage. I do not like apps that use my device storage. It is so easy to implement!
Back button works now in latest version. Love the definitions window. Decisions aren't included. Good app otherwise.
