I just downloaded this app for my Alcatel One Touch Idol 3. I have used the free version of FreeCaddie since I had a Motorola Triumph years ago. It always worked well butI switched to one of the free competitor apps that offered more features a couple years ago. I have used FreeCaddie occasionally since switching when I was unable to download course/map information due to poor data connections. Some golf courses seem to be to far from the cell towers to get a good data connection. FreeCaddie course information downloads easily over 3G or poorer connections. I know the other app lets you download the course so a data connection isn't needed but who thinks of that until the data signal is bad. The new features make FreeCaddie look more attractive - almost like the pro version without the overhead view. I'll be trying it out again this spring and summer to see how it compares.
Crashes every 5 minutes. Really disappointed. I used the old version for a couple of years and it was great. This new version is terrible. So many people are in the same boat as me. Why don't they listen and bring back the working old version.
Won't work Disappointing. This used to be a simple useful app. Now it's an overblown mess which crashes every time
The update ruined it Had the paid version of Freecaddie for a couple years without updating it. It was simple but it did everything I needed and it did it well. Didn't need to log in to use the app. Unfortunately I updated the app to find a much bulkier more complicated app. The experience is unpleasant when compared what it i used to be. Some recommendations: 1. Log in should be optional! 2. Allow scores to be entered without the use of a scroll wheel. 3. Scorecard to show first 9 holes total.
I transitioned from the older FreeCaddiePro to this newer version without any issues. I especially like that I can still add courses that are not already in the list as we had one local course change their layout, and another country club that was not on the list at all.
Works well. Would give 5 stars if you gave ability to switch off elevation as it contravenes R&A competition rules.
