Better for beginners than golf plan

Less of an app this is really a series of instructional videos. However the content is great and well presented and in my view much more useful to beginners than the Golfplan app.

I have some jiggles though. The audio quality on the videos could be clearer and definitely louder. The summary text gets truncated when in landscape mode and you have to flip the iPad to view it, why can't I scroll? I would like the ability to bookmark important parts within the videos. Also I would prefer that the app remembered which videos I had viewed.

Soooooo awesome

I can't tell you how much I love this app. It's really very simple. There are 30 or so short 2 minute videos with perfect explanations for all major aspects of the game. They are perfectly organized and each video provides an easy to understand lesson.

By stepping through the videos at my own pace, I was able to quickly memorize the various concepts, and apply them without going through a point by point checklist as I play. My last game and trips to the driving range have shown that I'm really having a breakthrough due to these simple lessons.

I still have not tried the swing analyzer, and plan to do so this weekend. But I have to say, even without the analyzer, this app was worth it. Thanks so much!

Very cool app!

I've been using the previous release of the app as a reference tool for different aspects of by game. I find the training video's simple and helpful. They've really helped me bring my scores down. I found the video re reading greens particulalry useful.

I downloaded the new rev a couple of weeks ago and have just started to use the swing analyzer. I took a couple of swing videos on my iPhone and imported the .MOV files as per the FAQ solution on the Every Day Golf Coach web site. Although they don't think they can support .MOV files, it worked fine for me. Being able to compare my swing with the pro's side by side is a real eye opener. Man does my swing need work!

All in all a great app, especially for the money.
