Golf GPS SwingU Positive Reviews
Good Phone App, Horrible Watch AppThe phone version of the SwingU app is pretty good. It tracks your handicap, it has an intuitive interface to input scores, and is pretty accurate on distances on the course. The club tracking is nice and the stat tracking is really informative on how you have played over several rounds too.
However, my issue with the app is mainly through the Apple Watch version. I’ve played 90 rounds with this app and the watch version FREEZES EVERY SINGLE TIME. I’ve even tried keeping my phone in my pocket while playing too, which is not very comfortable, and it still freezes. Restarting the app when this happens sometimes fixes the issue, but not for long. I even went out and bought the cellular version of the Apple Watch recently because I thought that it might help. No luck. It is very frustrating because I enjoy the phone app itself and get use out of many of the features. I just wish I could use the watch version more on the course and didn’t have to go to my phone after leaving every green to input my scores.
If the developers could figure out how to solve the Apple Watch bugs, this would be a perfect golf app. But for now 3/5..Version: 7.2.9
Quit working on my Apple WatchI really liked the app and all the funtionality. The overhead satellite shots and distance calculation seems to be second to none. It had a really great interface with my watch, and gave me front middle and back of green distance. Also incredibly easy to enter in scores and know where you are in the round. Recently I found that a local course did not match up with my scorecard. I went on the website to edit the golf course, and they did have the correct information on their website. However, in my app the back nine was incorrect for nearly every hole. Their support got back to me quickly, but something is not right between the scorecard on my app and what they show on the website. For the last three weeks, I have not been able to use my Apple Watch with the app. I work for a company that uses Apple exclusively, and I’m all up-to-date with the latest technology. I’ve gone online and spent half an hour going through mediocre instructions on how to set up the watch. It is all to no avail. It’s very frustrating having to pull out your phone all the time and not be able to use your watch. I am going to try GolfLogix. If the watch functionality works, it has five stars. Without the watch, three stars at best. To be clear, I used this for a year and a half with no problems, then all of a sudden around the beginning of June my watch no longer worked with the app..Version: 7.0.28
Great stat tracking & watch appSwingU Plus has great Apple Watch integration; I use it to show distance to the green while playing, track stats over time, and track distance with each club on selected shots. [Update: 8.0.2 fixed the bug where a few holes of data disappear on the phone after closing a round on the watch.] The comparison of stats from the last month and last year vs. all time is helpful, although it might be better to compare the last 5 and 20 rounds since some months/years have more/fewer rounds. I'd also like to see the stats expanded, particularly by adding data on where par 3 shots go (like the current driving data for par 4-5 holes); showing GIR% for par 3, 4, and 5 holes (with big implications for what I need to work on); and tracking changes in my handicap over time.
The strokes gained in Pro is pricey, but looks promising - entering a few details after each hole is easier than tracking every single shot on the course or manually editing auto-tracked data afterward. I may try the 7-day trial once they allow strokes gained data entry from the watch (I don't want to have to take out my phone after every hole)..Version: 8.0.3
Potentially Very GoodUPDATE: customer service was very helpful in explaining why my handicap hadn’t changed. I had played on a course with temporary greens (no putting, assume two puts) & other factors that resulted in an unusually low score. The handicap calculation limited my handicap to no more than 5 strokes above that score. I was able to easily exclude that round to get a more reasonable handicap. Problem solved! I’ve changed my rating to 5 stars! ————
I have just short of 700 rounds played with this app and I continue to use it. Unfortunately, according to the app, for the last two months or so my handicap has not varied by even one tenth of a point. That’s obviously incorrect. I have started using a separate app to calculate my handicap. I generally like the stats from this app but for some reason for “successful scrambles” I get a percentage (which seems correct) and under that it always says “4/5”. By itself that not a big deal, but combined with the erroneous handicap calculation I start wondering about all the other data. Not very confidence inspiring. OTOH, it works very well with my Apple Watch 6 - that’s one reason I keep using the app..Version: 7.4.0
Great and easy to use FREE versionHave been using this app all summer. Works great and has detailed course layouts. Have found that the distances are pretty accurate for hazards and lies. Was able to find all of my local Northern Nevada courses. Calculated my handicap after three full rounds and has adjusted it as I’ve entered info. The ONLY issue I have, is that there are a few courses in Tahoe that have a smaller par (66, 68). Playing those didn’t recognize the par score there being smaller instead of the standard 72. So shooting a 78 on a par 66 calculated it in relation to a 72 and drastically lowered my handicap. I had to exclude it from my calculation, which surprisingly was possible through the app. Just wish it would recognize those scores for what they were rather than in relation to 72. But otherwise an amazing app that I use every time I go out.
The paid version would allow for better distance calculations, such as “plays like” and “club recommendations”. But for me the free version has been fantastic. Having the accurate course layouts has taken some real strokes off my game. I’m so close to breaking 80..Version: 7.6.7
Excellent free app and even more excellent customer service!I think this is the first app I’ve ever reviewed in probably 12 years of owning an IPhone. This app is so good it’s hard to believe it’s free. On top of that and what prompted me to right a review, the little 9 hole course I play has two holes on the back 9 that change par due to tee box position, so if you wanted to use this app to keep score, duplicating the front nine will make it appear you bogeyed a hole on the back 9 even though you hit a par on it. (I realize the score is going to be the same but it was bugging me) I emailed SwingU support about this to ask if there was a way to change the par number on the back 9. They responded very quickly and told if I’d send a picture of one of our scorecards, they would update their database. I sent them a picture of a scorecard this morning while out on the course, just looked at it a few minutes ago, and they have already updated my course in the app where I have an accurate front and back 9. Same day, fantastic customer service. Highly recommend SwingU!!!!.Version: 7.6.5
Missing one featureI have used this app for a full year and have recommended it to all my buddies. It is a great app! I would rate this app with 5 stars except I think it needs one feature added. I would like to be able to manually enter club distances. I sometimes forget to tag a club or I fail to finish the distance until I move to the next shot. I often know the distance, but just don't get it entered. Being able to manually enter my distances would ensure that I get more accurate club data. Please add this feature.
Additionally, the Apple Watch version needs some work. For instance, the app automatically goes to the scoring screen when near the green. However, if you leave that screen, to finish tracking a shot for example, there's no way to go back to the scoring screen. Also, there is no way to delete a tracked shot if you shank one and decide not to track it. If you have already entered the club, you have to delete it from your phone. In fact, I still have to keep my phone within easy reach, because the phone app version is so much more user friendly. I could not accurately score a round with just the watch.
I would also like to see the Apple Watch version use its own GPS and not the phone’s. I think this would improve the speed of the app since it’s slower than other apps I have tried.
One more thing. It would be nice if the Apple Watch version would automatically track a golf workout in the Workout app
Please upgrade. Thanks..Version: 5.0.39
Best pandemic FeatureThe app never worked well with my 1st generation Apple Watch. That Apple Watch was way to slow to respond to the data. Well, that watch fell apart on my arm playing golf. The face and the back fell off. I got my money’s worth out of it. That day, I picked up a new Apple Watch before going home. I had not tried the app on the new watch until yesterday. I was pleased with how it worked. However, I use it to just track my shots. I have a laser range finder and use to often. The Apple Watch feature is perfect for keeping up with my health date on the course. Steps showed how much I walked even when using the golf cart. During the wet winter conditions, I love being able to track my steps and other data. I like the share feature too. New 6th Apple Watch makes this app a must use! Even with a high dollar range finder. Sticking my iPhone in my back pocket is easier hauling that significantly heavier range finder. If Verizon didn’t charge a premium for data on an Apple Watch I’d sell my range finder..Version: 7.3.0
Support team responds fast and is helpful!This app has been exactly what I was looking for. A simple gps I can use on my Apple Watch while out on the course. The yardage has been accurate when checked against my rangefinder within +/- 3 yards every time I checked. Being able to select what club I just hit and track my shot is great for learning how far I actually hit each club out on the course. I haven’t paid much attention to the suggested club yet but once I get more shots saved on each club I’m sure that function will be handy. After one of the updates the app dropped off of my Apple Watch so I contacted the support team. Messaged back and forth several times and they reached out to the development team. Within a week of reaching out to them they had another update sent to the App Store and I now have the app back on my watch! My experience with their support team (Christi) was top notch..Version: 7.0.25
FrustratingThe free functions are great if not a little buggy. The bird’s eye view allows you to see yardage from the tee and any point you choose on the hole. When on the course it will tell you yardage from where ever you are to the flag. There are a lot of courses too. All courses in my area, including a small municipal course, are on the app.
The frustration is with the paid features. It’s supposed to let you track shot yardage. You select the club you are swinging then tell the app you are starting of the shot. Once you swing, you walk to the ball then end your shot to record yardage. This option is very buggy. Sometimes it doesn’t start recording the swing. Other times it doesn’t end the swing. At times yardage from a second shot seems to record back to the tee giving crazy yardage— I’m know I cannot hit my 4 iron 300 yards. The score keeping feature has bugs as well. Keep a paper score as backup if you care about tracking your rounds.
This could be a great app but there a lot of issues with bugs making the app for unreliable for anything but yards to the green..Version: 7.0.35
Awesome AppI have tried most of them and this is the one I have landed on for the past 2 years. I have logged over 130 rounds with it so I believe i have a really good idea what the program can do. The basic app is great for scorecard a d putts per round. You can also measure your shot, but not save data. To unlock the full potential you need to upgrade to Looper. Yes their is an annual fee but if you are serious about tracking where you are going it is far cheaper than one lesson. You can track multiple stats, measure AND SAVE distances with each club in your bag. It also will give you advice on shots based on wind conditions and using average distances charted (be careful and dont use in usga events). I have found yardage’s are spot in although if Verizon is your carrier sometimes a few yards off from time to time but that is Verizon not the program. All in All i have found this to be top of the class in this space !!!.Version: 5.0.44
I love my SwingUI have been a Looper for about a year and love my SwingU app. It is even better now that most carts have a USB charger so I don’t have to carry a charger. While others are fumbling with their lasers I have shot the middle of the green, distance to the water and the bunker on the right. I love it. The electronic scoring is a bonus. My only complaint is now that I actually measure my drives with the app I can’t hit my driver as far as I used to.
Then came the shocker.
I have never won anything in my life. Six weeks ago I got an email from SwingU saying I had won a Scotty Cameron puttering their weekly drawing. I said great all I have to do is pay $499 for shipping and handling right? No, they said, that is free. I chose the one I wanted and one week later it arrived. Amazing. Still can’t believe it. So when they say this week we are giving away a Ping driver they are not kidding. Love you SwingU
Reg Friesen from Ohio.Version: 6.0.9
My favoriteI love this App. It is the only one I use after trying several. The GPS is extremely accurate and the view of course is not bad either. I don’t even use my Garmin GPS now. I have this app with me everywhere I go because I carry my phone everywhere I go. I love that it keeps your score and putts. It only keeps your putt count though not those you add to the scorekeeper. It also allows you to save all of your scores and the courses you play to compare improving or slipping back. The GPS to find the courses nearby is extremely accurate and easy to use. You can even take pics and add them to your app. This app is the best one out there! Also it is not irritating where you have to sign in every time you want to use it. Can not stress enough the great quality of this app!.Version: 5.0.42
Barely ok but functional App on the phone but non functional on iWatchHad this app for a while now on my Apple iPhone and iWatch. Somewhat acceptable phone app like most other similar apps. No must have feature. But don’t know why this app insists that the location tracking setting set to “Always” on iPhone, while most other similar apps don’t require that but function fine when you open and use them. It just ends up draining battery end of 18 holes. I compare it with another app that allows even GPS to be turned off within the app with a simple click. Battery performance of this app on phone is relatively poor.
However, worst is on iWatch - Practically useless and non functional on Apple iWatch (no GPS). Always freezes and doesn’t sync up with the game and the phone app even if phone is in trouser pocket and watch on wrist. At moments I need distance the most, it’s annoying to see it has crapped out 🥵.Version: 7.6.2
Easy to use and Apple Watch compatibleI almost never pay for apps, particularly through yearly subscriptions. But this golf app finds courses for you without any need for downloading, works easily with the Apple Watch, and scoring for you and your foursome is a breeze. The GPS works great too.
My only complaint right now is accessing your scores and making score corrections. When I finished 9 of 18 holes, the prompt (if I recall) asked me if I wanted to save my score, which I did. It then assumed I was done and stopped scoring. I then had to get back into the app and get to the 10th hole. All of which is minor, except it would not let me find my playing partner’s front 9 score, let alone correct an entry. Plus finding your scoring history and other golfers scoring history is very difficult.
Having said all that, I do like the rest of the functionality and am very happy with this app..Version: 7.0.29
Recent crashingI’ve used this app for over a year now with about 70+ rounds. I’ve tried others but I prefer this one. It’s easy to put in your scores, move the distance marker around, and zoom around on the hole. However, since this last update, it’s been freezing and crashing. If I have to go back and edit a score.. when I click save it either freezes for like 20 seconds and then jumps back to the map or it will just crash and I have to reopen the app. Luckily when it crashes I can resume where I left off, and most of the time it updates the score I was trying to change, but it’s weird it does this now. Maybe it has something to do with the ads? It never did this before you guys put ads in it. Anyways, this is an accurate, detailed (if you need it to be) well designed golf gps and scorecard app. I recommend it.Version: 7.2.1
Tour Pro approvedSwingU App is your best bet when it comes to improving your golf game. Whether it’s using it as a rangefinder or for keeping stats, or both, SwingU allows the player to keep a record of their rounds and provide ways to improve your game as it pinpoints your strengths and weaknesses and gives the user video help from a certified pro to help you work on what is needed to improve your game. As a professional golfer on tour, I have seen dramatic improvement in my game as SwingU has become my yardage book, rangefinder and stat-tracker. Instant and proper feedback allows any player at any skill level to improve faster and more efficiently. Highly highly recommend!.Version: 7.4.0
Completely UnusableHave had this app for a few years now. I used to be able to use it on the course and it was pretty reliable but now it is completely unusable. I am able start the round and by the time I get to my first tee shot and check the distance to the pin the app crashes and all I see is a white screen. Some times I am to restart the app and get more then a white screen. Sometimes I am even able to enter a score, mostly though I am not. Once in awhile it will locate me on the course after restarting but then it will crash and back to a white screen it goes. I have been able to enter the scores at home when I use my iPad so I can track my rounds but the app is complete useless on my iPhone. I am not sure if these problems are because I have an iPhone 4s but all this started when the app was redone. Currently looking at dedicated gps devices right now..Version: 6.0.3
Change in compatibilityI love the SwingU app and have used it for several years. Up until about two weeks ago, it was compatible with my iwatch which was great. I have searched why the app will not show up as available and sync from my phone to the watch and did everything to bring it back. I have now discovered that there must have been a change in compatibility with the app now requiring a watch OS of 7.0 or higher. Unfortunately, my watch OS is 6.3. I am extremely disappointed with that.
Update: Thank you for the response to my review. Unfortunately, my Apple Watch is as up to date with the OS as it can be, therefore I may have to purchase a new apple watch in order for it to be compatible with the app. Technology is always changing!!.Version: 7.6.4
App is buggy, freezes, sometimes tracks workoutsI have the paid version. Paid for a year but will look elsewhere after that’s done. The gps part is good, syncs and gives fairly accurate scores. However, the app constantly minimizes to background on watch. I constantly have to reopen the app so it shows on the watch face. Super annoying. Every 3 or 4 times when I open the app on my phone to start a round, it freezes and I have to close the app and reopen it. There is also a sync feature where if you play a round it counts as a workout on your activities under golf. This works maybe 1 out of every 10 times I play. I play golf almost everyday and this app overall is decent but with the bugs it becomes fairly annoying while on the course, especially since I play so often I notice it a lot more..Version: 7.0.29
Vs 4.0.10 SbSThis app keeps getting modified. One wonders that perhaps these software geniuses have gone over the top. (I get 2 emails whenever we start a round. Then I get 2 more emails announcing that I have completed my round. This was a GREAT APP ABOUT 2 r visions ago. But then as a software guy I beef to stay employed, due out with another revision.
This new version 4.0 of swing by swing worked great the 2 times that I used it on golf course. I have been using this iPhone free app for about 4 years? Great App. (Only problem is it is slow and drains my battery). So my wife bought me a Garmin which lets me play 3 rounds on 1 battery charge).
I recommended the swing by swing app but after over 284 rounds, I have left for Garmin s20..Version: 7.0.19
Changed My GameI’ve been playing golf my whole life and have always taken the club away inside. It usually leads to a draw, but without regular practice, timing gets off and it results in a two-way miss. I’ve tried numerous times to get it more on-plane, but its hard to re-route a golf swing after 30 years. That all changed with the commentary and 2 minute video the pro shared with me in the 1-on-1 feature. He sent the perfect drill for me to work on to think about it another way and I’ve gained significant consistency since I’ve been using this drill. It’s rare to have one drill make such a huge difference after playing golf my whole life, but thanks to SwingU for making that happen!.Version: 7.0.4
Great app small issuesI downloaded the app because I wanted distances to the green from anywhere and this has yet to disappoint. Actually was better than I expected as it gave front, middle, and back pin distances. It was within 2-4 yards of a range finder so that was a huge plus. The only downside is it would freeze occasionally on the phone which made the watch not show distances. I really wanted it to use my watch and not keep my phone in my pocket. So every now and then through a round I would have to close the app on my phone and reopen it for it to work on my watch. Still less of a hassle than guessing distances or buying a range finder..Version: 7.2.1
Excellent Golf AppI have been using SwingU for a few years and i find it to be a vital part of my game. I can rely on its ability to give me accurate yardage and the zoom in feature for approach shots is incredible. I use that also when I play a new course that I don’t know.
I can review my stats later on and it keeps my handicap without my need to figure it out. Yesterday my phone was low on battery so I had to pace off the yardage like in days of old. When I got home I was able put in my score hole by hole using the app as if I was at the course. That was enjoyable too but I do like having SwingU at my disposal. It helps make golf more enjoyable for me.
Jeffrey in OKC.Version: 7.2.1
Simple, clean interface and great feature-set for price point.SwingU is my preferred golfing app to use on the course in conjunction with my Apple Watch after trying just about every other app available. I find the watch app to be far and away the most useful and practical compared to alternatives.
That said, I am disappointed to remove a star because I do not feel that the club tracking feature (which I pay for) is not accurately calculating average club distances. It is tracking data wonderfully, but my reported averages simply do not change regardless of data collected. This is frustrating because it is the feature I like most about the app — is this something that will be fixed in a future update?.Version: 7.0.9
Very good App minor tweaking would make it greatApp works great on iPhone. Quickly locates course via GPS and maps very good. When finished iPhone automatically switches to scorecard for entry. IWatch could use some tweaking, display numbers very small could use a larger font. App does not default in dock so when you raise watch to get yardage it’s necessary to select App again from dock. Would also like to see an iWatch native mode so once course played would be stored and played again without iPhone using watch GPS. I find myself launching a competing App on iWatch and this App on iPhone. With these fixes would easily rate a five star.Version: 5.0.42
Waiting for gps standalone on Apple watchI have been using the premium version of this app for almost a year now. It has definitely helped me improve my score and I enjoy it. It's easy to use and has the information I want and nothing more. However, now I feel it's holding me back. When it comes to being on the green, I don't bring my phone for accurate GPS reading. I mount my phone to the cart for the distance and playing music. I don't want to be removing it every single hole. I can't accurately track my approach shots because I have to stay a certain distance away from the green. I see your competitor does have it. Waiting patiently but not forever..Version: 7.6.7
TrickyThey fooled me into subscribing for a year, because I hit “back” from the free-trial screen after missing the “plus” option, selected the plus option, and then “continue”, which subscribed me. So congratulations to them for that.
They don’t link to my GHIN handicap, which means that I’m still holding on to GolfShot for now, because GolfShot automatically calculates my “net double bogey” score and will post directly to GHIN.
On the plus side, they have a “plays like” feature, which is very useful, and green maps, which are more accurate than my app-less reading. The implementation is annoying, though, because as soon as I’m on the green, before I can click the button for the green map, it pops up the Score window, which I then have to cancel to get to the green map. However, if I’m tracking the shot I hit to the green, I can work around this by hitting the green map, then lining up my putt, then finishing the tracking of the shot.
Another thing it doesn’t do is let me track my putts. I don’t know why.
So in sum, I am using this for a year, after which time I might try the GHIN app, which has no free trial period..Version: 8.2.0
Very crankyApp is very unpredictable. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. When complain about it, mostly was informed to delete and reinstall. Got tired of that. Today the watch feature did not work at all but phone function worked. It did not record any info about steps etc. Last time both the phone and watch and step count worked until hole 11 and it all stopped. Consider getting an app that actually always works as this is very frustrating. Update: first day if golf both app and watch worked great. Second day, same course, same weather, app on watch never worked and app worked a few holes and then stopped. Very very frustrating..Version: 7.5.0
Games ImprovingThis app is awesome! Such an easy way to see the course from an overhead view. Especially easy to use and a great tool for when I’m looking at a new course Iv never played before. I know exactly how far my tee shot needs to go with it’s easy satellite images. Also this app a great way to keep stats from every round and see how my game is trending! It also shows me tips and videos that might help my game out depending on what stat is lacking. I can definitely say that this app has helped my game out! Excited to keep seeing how much I can improve!.Version: 7.6.1
Not Good for Apple WatchI give up, they advertised “try Plus service and if not satisfied, cancel and get refund of unused months”. All lies, freezes on watch during use on course, so it’s useless. Tried to get refund, contacted Apple since purchase was made using my Apple account, they said no because it’s 3rd party responsibility, contact developer. I contacted developer, they said it was purchased thru Apple and Apple won’t let them issue refunds. Complete runaround from both Apple and 3rd party developer. If you have an Apple Watch, don’t get this App, it’s Garbage!!!!.Version: 7.6.2
Please add my course!Your description clearly states that you feature EVERY golf course in the US and possibly the world but unfortunately you do not offer my golf course, Pine Hill Country Club of Ripley, Mississippi. Due to the setup of the app, I cannot use it unless I first pick a course and the course I typically play at is the one stated above. I love the app and it’s features but I cannot use them until this issue is resolved. Please add my course to your list. It is a small 9-hole course and will not take up your time. Thank you for your time and careful consideration..Version: 7.5.3
Works as advertisedI have been using this app for over a year. The distance indicated is almost exactly the same as the guys with dedicated hand held units. Several of the guys I golf with are now using the app and are all satisfied with it. The battery seldom uses more than 40%. I turn off the screen when in between shots. Everything works as advertised. I am saving all my golf winnings to save up to buy the upgrade. I bought the upgrade but don’t use all the features. Still happy with it.
Sometimes the gross score and the net are off by a stroke. Gross 91 with a handicap of 17 returns a net of 73 instead of 74..Version: 7.7.0
Trustworthy, Reliable and AccurateI’ve been using the Swing by Swing app since it first came out and has never let me down. I use it to keep my score and statistics as well as the score of the foursome I am playing with. I love everything about it! The paid version is absolutely worth it and a bargain. The only thing I don’t like is that it isn’t linked directly to the USGA’s GHIN system. It was great to be able to post scores directly from the app, but that feature went away a few years ago. I’m sure that was a USGA thing, but I hope it comes back someday..Version: 5.0.44
From a Pro!!I have been a professional tour player on the Symetra Tour since 2017 and I began using the SwingU app this year. It is the perfect user friendly golf statistics app for players of all levels (from beginner to professional!) One of the best features of the app is that once the user has put in statistics from several rounds, the strengths and weaknesses of their games are highlighted in the Performance tab and it offers free drills to help make improvements! I would definitely recommend this app to any golfer looking to improve their games!.Version: 7.4.0
Was betterThe primary reason I had got this app previously was for the instruction content. Specifically I wanted to follow Mark Blackburn’s information as his app is no longer available. At first the app was nice cause I could search for his stuff specifically and I even bought the paid version. However with the recent changes you can’t filter by instructors. This was an important feature as players don’t want a myriad of different instructors and philosophies that may contradict. Because of this I uninstalled and was issued a refund. Great customer service but for me no reason to pay for and there are other gps and stay systems out there..Version: 8.0.3
Amazing app, -10 shotsReal satellite imagery plus interactive map is the ultimate combo for trusting yardage and shot picking. You know your yardage to a tree is correct when you can see where the app thinks you are, and you see the satellite image of the tree with a line between the two. Easy peasy.
Been using this since it was called Swing-by-Swing. While there are a few small glitches that persist, such as score prompting mid-hole and not after hole sometimes, it’s still an amazing tool far better than catroony maps or non-interactive displays. I’d give it 5-stars otherwise.
Took 10 strokes off my game, and is freemium...can’t ask for more!.Version: 6.0.8
Apps great… but recent issues with Apple WatchI had this app for over a year now and for the most part it’s been great. Recently however, I can not get it to launch on my Apple Watch. This started around the time of the update. It crashes every time. I’ve checked to make sure my devices are up to date, as well as deleting the app and reinstalling. Sorta at a loss at this point.
One thing that would be nice to add would be to have the ability to link with your GHIN account. Not having to enter 1 round into both apps would be a nice feature..Version: 7.8.0

Not accurateNice little app but the distances do not appear accurate at all. Sone 20 yards off..Version: 8.0.3
Update from last review.I tried the free trial once yrs ago, at the time it was near impossible to stop them charging my credit card!
Note: After contacting support they ensured me I would not be charge again. I’m quick to anger when having to spend what little energy I have left to chase down support for something that should have been handled competently in the first place. I’m sure it’s a good app, but illness took away golf years ago..Version: 8.0.2

Worth the price of admissionSwingU has been a valuable asset not only in my own competitive golf but also for my students. The user friendly platform gives you valuable stats for areas of improvement and follows up with a full library of instructional videos. For high end players the green maps and GPS course layout function is worth the price of admission..Version: 7.8.1
SwingUPretty good when using free version. A bit clunky to enter scores and move around in the app. I find the google earth looking display difficult to differentiate traps water and tree shadow though..Version: 7.8.4
Best appRecommend the app to anybody.Version: 7.8.1
Great customer service!!Fell in love with the app right of the bat!!. Or club I should say.. Easy to use.Keeps track of all your stats and round info.. Best golf app on the market. Was having issues with the app after an update. Had lost all my rounds data and history. A customer service agent returned my email immediately and helped me retrieve all my data.. GPS pretty accurate when I compare with my range finder.
I’ve been using this app for close to 10 yrs. Have yet to play a course that is not on their data base. Highly recommended it..
If I wanted to be a stickler …Would be great if there was a search icon for scrolling through previous played round history quicker..Version: 7.6.6
Effective AppUpswing app gives accurate distance, amazing satellite view of each fairway, and easy to using scoring. If you don’t yet have it, get it!.Version: 7.6.3
Fine at firstSubmitted my local course and it was added within a day.
However, paired with my Apple Watch (6) at times it started to get stupid and not display yardages or give an error saying “looking for a round”. Going directly to the phone was an option that had to be done in order to get yardages and frequently get an error stating Not near hole..
I changed the setting for how often it checks gps about halfway through the season (uses more battery) to the most frequent and still it has issues.
Frequently have to change setting to never get location in Privacy>Location Services then open the app and then change the setting back to Always and then shutdown and reopen the app.
The most aggravating part however is when you finish 9 or 18 holes and it registers your score but the Fitness/Activity app reports zero time/calories/exercise minutes ..
I used this for the entire summer, close to 100 or more rounds (9 hole course) to get a feel for this app.
I would certainly use another app if it was less frustrating than this one..Version: 7.6.6
Keeps disconnecting from my Apple WatchI had the pro subscription and cancelled it this year as I found more and more that my Apple watch was disconnecting mid round. Yes I have it setup according to the app specifications. I enjoy focusing all my effort on getting a scoring app to work correctly on my watch instead of focusing on the game. If I was told this issue is fixed I would try the free version again to confirm before subscribing..Version: 7.6.5
MUST TRY THIS APPI don’t even know where to start this app is amazing it’s exactly like a golf range finder recommend this app 100% and you don’t even have to pay a dime to use this app.Version: 7.6.2

SwingU supportThe app is frustrating as there is not a manual that gives u step by step instructions plus instructions on how to use it with Apple Watch Thinking of cancelling.Version: 7.6.1
Great App!Love using this app to track all my stats when playing. The GPS part is amazing because you can checkout new course before even deciding where you want to play.
One thing I would change would be to have a Friends section you can invite people to do you could all be on the same scorecard and tracking what your friends are shooting. You can have friends on the scorecard now but it’s very basically and it just sends it to them via email. I wish it would also save it in your stats so not both parties have to track the scores. I think an overhaul of the social aspect of the app would make this app even better..Version: 7.5.4

Great app and great devsFirst of all the app is very well designed and easy to use, the best I've found on the app store.
Second I want to give a shout out to the dev team for taking feedback and implementing it. One of my local courses recently switched up the order of the course a bit so I contacted the dev team and they made the changes to the course on the app within a week.
If you're going to use any golf app for your phone or watch, use this one..Version: 7.3.6
