  • I like the app but...

    By golfhart
    This app has been great. I have kept my range finder at home because the distances and suggestions have been a life saver. The only suggestion I would have is in the stats of the hole could you put a place on how many wedge shots you needed to get on the green. As someone working on his short game, this stat would help me out.

    Great app!
  • Cannot download latest update

    By jvringb
    I have used swing u for several years with minimal problems. Today I tried to update the app on my iPhone thru the App Store but the update icon just spun and never finished. I deleted the app from my iPhone and attempted to download the updated version but cannot do so. The normal “get” or iCloud image does not appear. Solution? Golf season starting soon so fix is needed.
  • For free

  • Works most of the time

    When it works it’s great. I had a couple shots (even with premium) that it wouldn’t update to where I was.

    Love this app right on yardage
  • Great Ap

    This is just as accurate as a $180 rangefinder. Terrific program
  • Doesn’t work when I need it

    By Cathygolfer55
    This was billed as an Iwatch app and it is really and IPhone app that you can see from the watch. If you leave the phone in the cart and walk out to your ball, the distance is from the phone. And if your cart partner drives away then the distance is really wrong. Lately, it will not show me the yardage, and the satellite view shows the world. It keeps telling me I need to have Location on always not just when using the app which is NEVER a good idea for security reasons, but even that did not fix my problem.
  • Apple watch issue

    By golfingdino
    I love this app and I use it every time I am playing but I wish I could use my watch by itself. I always have to keep opening the app in my phone for it to refresh on the watch to see the yardage. So I have to always keep my phone in my pocket which i would prefer not to. I dont know if its a problem of my watch or the app is merely an screen extension of the phone.

    I like the app, my only request is that they make the course views a little brighter. More contrast would make it easier to distinguish between grass and water. They are currently both dark.
