Best of several apps I have course-tested.

I tried 3 other apps and found Golf Pad worked best with my Apple Watch and also was the least expensive - win-win. The app is intuitive, easy to make adjustments/corrections while playing and provides a great summary view that lets me go through the stats and tracked shots after the round. As an added bonus, I have found their support team to be AMAZING. Even before I was a premium customer paying for the app, they were super-responsive - helped me get a course I planned to play while traveling loaded in less than a day. I emailed them in the afternoon and had an email the next day that it was loaded and I played it that afternoon. They also helped me get a trial of the premium features and have also provided fast responses to a couple questions along the way. Looking forward to becoming proficient with all the features as I play more with it. Only downsides I see are things that are already being worked on - GHIN uploads being most significant I think. Overall I highly recommend giving Golf Pad a try if you’re looking for a gps app.

Issues, but best GPS for Battery Life

I like this app a bunch. Been using it for a couple years. When able, a couple times a week. Compared to other golf gps apps I’ve tried, it is the easiest on my battery. I have used this app for two straight rounds in one day and was even playing music on the same device simultaneously and still had plenty of battery life. As previous comment, I have had delays or glitches on it populating distances, sometimes having to go back and forth between screens for it to come up. But it is still reliable and worth using.

One recent complaint that I have which is really irritating and why I only give this 3 Stars, is due to the logging of scores for multiple players. Guess during one of the updates this changed. But now when inputting multiple players scores per hole it only saves the last persons score that you input. The work around is, you have input and save each individuals score, one at a time. I have to input my score on hole 1, save and then do the same for everyone else. And even then it still does not save scores properly. So lately I have had to get someone else to manually keep score on paper then go back and fill in the missing scores. So at this point it has not been very reliable. I didn’t even use it my last round due to this timely issue. Hope this gets fixed soon so I get back to using and referring this app.

Great App, tags on iPhone not so much.

Updating my review as I have the tags now. The app works great on Apple Watch without using tags, but using their tags causes the app to crash on the iPhone. It’s done this for months now. If you don’t want to use tags and an iPhone you’re ok.

This app is easy on the iPhone and Apple Watch battery (read their FAQs), accurate, helpful on the course and simply works. I tried the app alone and it worked well. Yardages were spot on and updated quickly. The setup for registering each club swing on the phone is well thought out. Since I have an Apple Watch, I tried their premium trial today. Watch app worked great (turned off watch’s heart monitor as it eats battery) and had 77% battery left after 18. The plays like distance takes into account elevation and weather, including wind, somehow and saved me on a par 4. We had some wind and the app was telling to hit about two clubs less off the tee. I followed the app’s advice, normally would have hit a club less. If I had hit one club less I would have been in trouble. Later I logged into web site to see uploaded round. Love the stats and I think I will be purchasing their club tags soon just to make registering club swings a little more convenient to pinpoint club distances and tendencies. Prior to the trial I emailed a few questions to the company and received quick and helpful responses. Nothing but a great app with good support.
