Numbers guy 5/5
I’m a numbers guy but can’t hold a range finder steady enough to get exact yardages. This is the 1st time I used swingu and numbers were right on. Great app and didn’t drain my battery.
Trouble accessing app on course 3/5
I can not get the app to work, e. g. Locate a course while golfing. Get a message “internet not accessible”. I can get full cell service at the same location. This is a new problem
Just started using and so far it has been easy to use.
Must have 5/5
This app is great, I use it with my Apple Watch and get accurate yardages while grabbing clubs from my bag. I am using the free version right now but will upgrade when I can get out more. I’m not a great golfer so knowing what yardages are from weird places is super helpful for my club selection. HIGHLY recommend this app
Best app yet! 5/5
Absolutely! This app can’t do anything but help you get better. User-friendly and stat biased!
Great App 5/5
Provides all I need to track score and shots.
By ATP SEMELS CFII
Very helpful when going to unfamiliar golf courses!!
A great app🏌️♂️
Should allow club selection on free app 4/5
You should allow club selection on the free version. It would be nice also to remember your shots from previously played rounds. Maybe if you could put this in your next update it would be more then 5stars.
I’ve tried most of these types of apps and this is the best one out there
I’m getting rid of golf shot...love this app
Good for keeping score
Wind direction 3/5
Would be a 5 but the wind always seems to be opposite of what it really is.
By Alvin Matthew
Its not set up for putts... you just plug it in after you leave the green
Used to be better 3/5
I really like this app, especially its flexibility in getting distances. HOWEVER, it used to be better. Now it doesn’t consistently ask for a score on the way to the next tee box. It also often flashes through 3 windows before it settles down after opening it between shots.
Handy and accurate 5/5
Great app very accurate distances to greens,hazzards and other locations. Its not a replcement for a good range finder but works great for hidden hazzards. Especially when playing a new course.
Apple Watch review 3/5
The app kept glitching out and closing itself during the round.
AGC Safety golf tournament 5/5
Really fun course
So far so good... but worried about the Watch app 3/5
I just got the app and used the free version for a round. It worked exactly as expected.
I upgraded to full version and am excited to start tracking my shots for club performance.
Hoping the the Apple Watch app does some of the cool features the mobile app paid version does (won’t know until I get on the course this weekend, but playing with watch at home in premium mode was not giving me a good feeling about being able to see all those extra “per shot” features). I will update my review then. That’s the most important part. I don’t want to pull my phone out of my pocket on course at all after “starting a round”... so hoping wind, elevation, suggested club, etc are all in there on my Apple Watch. If not, I’ll be pretty disappointed in paying for all that but then not being able to use it on my watch (the whole point of it). I’ll update once I get some course play with my watch and the UPGRADED value (if it’s worth paying for or not)
Ideally I could swipe watch screens see ball position on mini map version, see wind and direction, see elevation changes, see distances to key hole features (I know it does front/back of green on watch but not much more in free version). The key to this app being the best will be how good the Watch app is in relation to its “mobile app” features. A golfer should NOT need to open their phone on the course and still get all the benefits on the system. Update will be made next week.
On a side note: They do have an issue with data caching even if you delete a round it still was counted in averages etc. having to fully “log out” and back in was annoying and just bad code, but since it won’t happen that much I’ll deal with it. Hopefully they make the app truly “clear cache” and refresh your stats when you push their “clear cache” button already there (skip the log out and in extra step)
Features continually removed. 4/5
Was a five star app, but has fallen off consistently. It’s far more choked with ads and promotional material now, and I’m even a subscriber! Additionally, it had many more features that mysteriously just faded away with “upgrades”.
Used to be able to share live rounds and follow the rounds of your friends - GONE.
Used to receive emails of rounds - GONE.
Used to be able to take photos that would be embedded with your round - GONE.
Used to have more useful stats, like average number of birdies per round. - GONE. All the data is all still there, no clue why this would be removed, it literally costs nothing but a few CPU cycles of the phone.
Take into account that the UI has also changed for the worse, this went from a five star app to another mediocre one. 🙁
Great app 5/5
This is a great app for keeping score, and also getting a sense of distance from the tee and to the hole.
It has been better 2/5
By Poker 4285
Swing U has changed ownership at least 3 times. Yardage used to +-3 yards a laser. Now it’s slow and inaccurate. I only keep paying for the service because I have almost 700 rounds on it for stats. Disappointing.
Didn’t work 3/5
By keep me out
I bought the year subscription and was charged for 2$ month when I subscribed for the 1.50 looper. So then nothing worked on the looper. Then I was trying to get a refund and nothing.
Club selection not working properly 1/5
Unable not select the clubs I loaded into to system on green putter not available on sand wedge or lob wedge
Great App 5/5
This app is very accurate with the iPhone X. Distances work out ver close.
My golf 4/5
Love this app
18 Birdies is so much better 2/5
Don’t bother with this app. Just download 18 Birdies. I’ve been using 18 Birdies for awhile now and in my opinion is so much better.
Good not Great 4/5
Like the app. Has very nice features. GPS lags and has a hard time if you are not on the fairway.
Saw my buddy 4/5
Using this app looks pretty slick
I absolutely love this app! So helpful
Can’t login 1/5
Keeps saying can’t connect to servers even though I’m on WiFi or have full service. Even tried two different email addresses that have no accounts and it won’t even let me create a new account.
Anyone else having this issue?
I have an iPad mounted in my golf cart and when I turn your app to landscape mode only the map turns but all the information overlay remains in the previous positions i.e. sideways. How do I correct this?
Overall satisfied 4/5
By Apple user34
The app is a great source to track your scores with your Apple Watch. The four stars was because there can still be improvements for the Apple Watch where if you’re not in distance of your phone you can’t plug your score in until your near your phone. The distance calculator works great as well but only if you are near your phone due to the Bluetooth. But overall as long as you have your phone near by, it’s a great app!
Changed My Game 5/5
I’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!
By Da Budster
I like the ease of use and the info on the course. The lessons are good too.
I did recommend it to a friend.
App not starting 1/5
Normally I love this app and have used it many times. However I’m trying to use it right now and when I opened it all I get is a black screen. It’s very frustrating.
Works poorly with Apple Watch 1/5
By big john 5000
This as well as all other apps I’ve seen tied to Apple Watch is a real amateur operation. To have to keep going back to your phone to advance to the next hole is a far cry from a gps connected golf watch that gives you front middle and back of green yardage with no effort. I’ve tried for the past three months to like this as well as other apps for Apple Watch and have concluded that it was lucky I didn’t give away my Garmin golf gps Watch. This app should be clearly marked “for none golfer debutants”.
Didn’t save my score 2/5
Finished 9 holes scoring with my Apple Watch. When I went to see my score in my phone it didn’t show anything past hole 1. It deleted my score and there was nothing to show for my round.
Not happy with their customer service 4/5
***Edit*** So after I put this review in I was contacted by several people. They were all very helpful in finding out what the issue keeping me from being able to use the upgraded features. Like I said in my original review I loved the app when it’s working which it is now. I would still recommend this app highly even with the small issues I’ve had ***Edit***
I upgraded to the looper feature and was paying $3.99/month. None of the upgraded features were available so I did the annual subscription thinking that that would unlock the extra features. I got charged the $24.99 for the annual subscription and still can’t use the features. I tried contacting them several times and got no response. I’m going to give it 3 stars because when the app was working I loved it. I guess I’ll be cancelling...after my year is up
Looper Benefits Don’t Work 1/5
App works fine without Looper. However, Looper benefits constantly drop. Looper now no longer working at all. I contacted support desk several times. Support desk advised me to log off and log back on. This only worked the first couple of times I lost looper benefits.
By Joseph Dworak
Have been using the app for years. Generally very reliable. Recently the wind has been way off, not sure what is going on.
Apple Watch Complication? 5/5
Really like the app...especially on Apple Watch. However, I need to go through the apps every time I wake up my watch. Is there any way to add the app as a complication on the face? I’d love to create a face just for golf that includes swing u, music, messages, and mail as the complications. Any thoughts?
Otherwise great app. Much better than my gMe!
Auto tracking not efficient 3/5
To difficult to designate end of round;
Defaults into lock down mode which is cumbersome to get out of
Dell Urich 5/5
Great course. Excellent shape. Thanks Tucson.
One time it gives the right course layout the next time it gives the old layout same course slower gps then 18 birdies ihave both and 18 birdies is accurate and faster
App no longer working 1/5
Consistently NOT giving correct yardage or an at all. Fails to locate itself. Also does weird screen flashing each time I pick it up. Used to be great but now looking to replace
The app works great 5/5
After an initial mix up signing up, the app works great.
Not working in my iphone Xs max 2/5
I love this app. 4.5 stars or more generally. My iphone 7 wax destroyed and when i got my new iphone Xs max, the app would not open. Black screen. Not sure what the deal is. Fix it and at least 4 stars.
USwing App 5/5
Outstanding app...going to upgrade....
