Ratings and Reviews
Missing one feature
I 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.

Quit working on my Apple Watch
I 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.

Swing U Versus
This was a total waste of time and money. All this does is focuses on the distance of each of your shots once your off the box. You say it’s for analysis and for swing u to send you advice on each type of shot you had. First of all it obvious only keeps track of 1 individual game at a time. Therefore if you have a tree sitting right in the middle of the fairway and you have to go over and around it, the app can’t see that and just treats it as a normal shot. There’s no room for analysis, and whatever analysis the app gives you would be counterproductive. Why do bunker shots only matter from 50 yds in? Just because you have to have a different type of swing from inside that distance. Doesn’t really make much sense. Why only cover recovery shots from certain distances? Also I’m at the point where if I miss the green on a chip from inside 50yds, I’m going home. This whole portion of stats are now just useless for me and just takes time for me to plug in. Swing U Versus just takes too long to record. The old way was 10x better. It looks like you guys are trying to be too sexy. Keep it simple, keep it about accuracy and the important factors that make golfers better. Distance is not one of them. If you can’t hit an approach accurately from 100yds you certainly can’t do it from 200yds so why keep track of that? Why would you want to focus on something you already know you need to improve? It’s redundant

Thank you for the review and feedback and I apologize if you do not see value in the Versus feature. The point of the feature is to take aspects of your game and try and pin point where you are losing strokes both in a given round and overall to help you lower scores and improve on your overall game. This is not just about distances but about finding areas to work on and get better.
We know that not every user will find this feature beneficial but we offer it for those that want to use SwingU as an improvement tool. If you do not want to enter the Versus data or receive round analysis you can disable Versus in the pre-round settings and return to our normal Premium scorecard where less information is requested and regular stats are kept.
If you have any additional questions about using the app with or without Versus, please let us know, firstname.lastname@example.org
