Great update Such a great app. The use of a black screen helps conserve battery. The option to turn off location services when app is in the background helps conserve battery. The auto advance hole feature works well. Walk away from the green toward the next tee box, and the app knows you are done with that hole. I had to enter a course into the program and it was very simple. I used the course website to identify the holes and used SkyDroid's website to tag the holes on a google satellite image. I have tried several and this is definitely the best of the best!
Good rangefinder As a rangefinder this is excellent. It's as accurate as my brother's £150 specialist tool, and the scoring tool is good. Lacks a stableford scoring facility though (which is really simple) which has cost it a point. I've added hole distances and pars on my local course through the website but a week later they are still not there. Come on guys - that would really make a difference.
Almost Perfect This is a great app and I love that it features both small and large golf courses. My only complaint is that it doesn't display the par # for the current hole when on that display page, only the yardage from the tees. I would place it above the zoom button. In addition, I would also add the distance to where the hole doglegs left or right from the tee box. I recently played one course with a hole like this and it would have come in handy. In addition, it would also be neat if you had the capability to get the distance to a region on the hole by taping on the screen.
Fantastic developer. Better then SkyCaddie Anyone who rates this less then 4 stars either has a defective phone or shouldn't be allowed near technology. Perfect on Galaxy S4. Developer is very nice. Course mapper makes adding or editing any course easy. I check the online mapping for every course before I play and make any tweaks which are needed and instant updates on courses are incredible Better then $40/year or stand alone. Accurate. So easy to add/fix courses. The one time it didn't have a mapping I found it I added it myself. Beats out device in the $200-300 range. I will be donating more money since it feels like robbery at $2. Anyone who rates this low shouldn't be allowed to use a phone. Its spot on. Knowing the distances and playing often has made me a better golfer.
Perfect & Cheap I had Golfshot on an iPhone and the meanies would not provide the software when I changed to Android and they charge nearly £20. This app is better as it doesn't drain your battery after half a round and the GPS is way quicker. A number of times with Golfshot I took the wrong club because it had not refreshed. Best of all this app is 10% of the cost. Happy UK based user :-)
My new favorite app. Took it to the golf course last week, loaded the course layout in about 20 seconds. Checked distances with friend's Bushnell RF; never more than 2 yds. +/- all the way around (usually inside 1) and almost instant readings. Maybe beginner's luck, but so far, perfect. Vast array of courses, even major venues (fun just to look at). Love it! Highly recommended (running on G2).
