Very Glitchy when trying to enter score that is not default such as a 5 in a par 4 - 5 strikes 2 putts... unable to hit Save Score... tried changing chip shots/fairway etc still no joy... cancel and then try to enter default score (par) and saves fine. Absolutely useless to use for scoring and unable to turn off scoring in the middle of a round - couldn't even exit without saving if round was incomplete... RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER... What I'm supposed to be able to do and what I was able to do

Thank you for the review and feedback, Tom, but you should be able to tap or scroll through the options to select the proper information without issue. You can also turn off the scorecard in the score settings in the app, even during the round. Please email we would be happy to help you with the score entry within the app.

The premium app is the only way to go. With that being said, having a difficult time getting premium app working once reinstalling the app. Still unable to reset my password. This app is far superior to Golflogix. No problems loading, keeping score is easy. I only reccomend adding enhanced features to the satellite view and adding more options to the driving options, such as block, pull, top, short, etc.

I bought the upgrade and it is really worth the money. No adds, haven't found a course in USA not supported and also the ones I have played in Punta Cana and Mexico. The pin color let's you know location of the front, middle and back of the green not the exact location. You have to eyeball how far from the front or back. Score keeping and your round stats are also kept. Highly recommend.
