Perfect app to track my stats! 5/5
A free app that keeps track of my scores and stats! Must-have for any golfer looking to improve!!
Will not load 1/5
Have been using this app for over a year now. Have over 40 rounds loaded. Now, on my Samsung phone, it crashes every time I open the app. Had to download a new app on my phone for my distances.
Great...but kills Apple Watch battery 4/5
I’ve been using this app for a while I found it extremely helpful especially as a newer golfer. It’s nice to be able to get the layout of each hole before you tee off in the distance it seem to be spot on. The one issue I have run into his when I use it with my Apple Watch, it drains my watch battery. Hopefully they can be improved upon in the future, because I really like the features of this app!
Used to be better. 4/5
Was a five star app, but has fallen off. It’s far more choked with ads and promotional material now, and I’m even a subscriber! Additionally, it previously had a great way to share rounds with others by text, email, etc. That function was removed without notice - shame.

Good support from the company, I just don’t like the app. I’m gonna stick w GolfPad GPS.
Update: I just added a star because your service is really good! The app just wasn’t intuitive for me and I couldn’t find any instructions related to learning the app. It looks like others like it so it’s probably good and just a preference thing. Like I said, your service and communication is great.
Awesome! Updated to latest - now has tilt perspectives 4/5
By harold h
Way cool, the development team listened to me (and probably many others)
You can tilt the perspective of the map to your own view to get a good readout/vantage point
Great work, great tool, still a bit glitchy with the 3d tilt but regardless a fantastic golf tool companion
Update issues 5/5
Been using this app for over a year without problems. Most recent update has resulted in the inability to login. It appears to be hung up between login and session expired login again. Problem recently corrected by developers. Great app.
If it worked... 2/5
By Flakey on Apple Watch
Regarding the Apple watch: This app looks very cool. But it is very frustrating because it loads up fine, works for a few holes, then sticks and doesn’t go to next hole.
I love keeping my personal stats. Your program makes it easy to do. Great job I used a lot of others this one is the best by far.
Bad upgrade 3/5
I have used this app for the last three years. I agree with some of the reviews. The old app was better than the summer of 18 upgrade. I have an iPhone 6 if that matters Often the app cannot find me and often it will crash and just show a white screen. I relaunch the app to get back to where I was. It is annoying. If they can fix the white screen issue it will be a good but not great app
Good GPS, Does Not Work With Apple Watch Alone 3/5
First, the good.
I bought the Looper level of the app to use with my Apple Watch Series 4, LTE, and iPhone. The app looks great. On the iPhone, the GPS is accurate and fast. I found the lack of controls (compared to other apps like SkyDroid) to be a small issue but nothing that would prevent me using this app. However...
The bad (for me, at least):
The app doesn’t advance holes automatically for me. Also, it would not function correctly on my Series 4 Watch. Specifically, it would not stay awake and on my watch screen. I had followed all the instructions the developers gave me yet every time I would look at the watch to see distance to the hole, there was my date and time showing - no SwingxSwing app! I kept having to go to my apps and press on it. And again, wouldn’t advance holes automatically. I don’t use it to keep score, only for GPS distances.
That, coupled with the app not working with the watch alone (one of the reasons I like LTE is I don’t need the phone at all times) was the deal breaker for me.
I believe this was just my expectations not being in line with what the developers have created. The app is good. Their customer service was fast and professional. I’m just sorry this didn’t mesh for me and I had to cancel my subscription.
My only suggestion would be for the devs to make their website better by including some tutorials, and very clearly stating these types of things (like the app only working when the phone is on and nearby). Lots of people don’t want their phones on the golf course.
Amazing feature set 5/5
The features available on this app for free are awesome. For less than the cost of one Pro V1 Ball per month you can do the Looper upgrade. I love it.
Shot tracking is awesome. Tip: track ALL your shots, not just the ones you’re happy with. That gives you a much more realistic picture of your averages and better club recommendations.
Basic distance feature is very helpful. I can find distances to many course features I can’t shoot with a range finder.
I also love the stats and being able to track things over time. I used to do all this manually with score cards and Excel, but now it’s done for me and available at my fingertips while I’m playing.
Great app - nothing bad to say. A couple of suggestions: the ability to add some personal notes to a hole would be cool. Also a feature to share a score card via text, email, save image etc. would be cool.
Some features gone update! 2/5
Good pgm for tracking ball, and I was wrong. You can still go online to see your rounds. I like this. Only upgrade I would like to see is the ability to track other players scores from my watch - which either you can’t do or I can’t figure out how.
Handicap? +2 to +3 4/5
I love the app- very accurate at the golf clubs I have used it but ur handicap equations can’t calculate a “+” handicap under zero?
It seems that the app just calculates anything that should be +1 or +2 to just 0.0?
Is that correct? Can that be modified in upcoming updates?
Apple Watch interface is useless 2/5
Hard to use (actually SEE useful info) AND DRAINS MY BATTERY TO DEAD BEFORE one round is complete = I turned it OFF!
My own personal caddie 5/5
GPS? Check. Rangefinder? Check. Caddie in your back pocket? Check.
I love this app. It takes all the guesswork out of my game from tee to green. The wind and plays like info are perfect for those times when I’m second guessing my club selection. I don’t think I could play a round without it.
Used for several rounds and it’s a game changer. Made the game go faster and more enjoyable. Bravo, excellent app!
The ONLY app you need 5/5
You name it, I tried it. Swing by Swing is hands down the best golf app on the market, and it keeps getting better!
It’s just like having a personal caddy with you at all times, and afterwards all the stats you could possibly want.
This app alone shaved 5 shots off my handicap this year, no joke. 5 *****
Loading errors 3/5
I’ve heard great things about the app but since I’ve installed it I haven’t been able to use it. Every time I hit course it just sits on the loading page searching for courses and it just searches, doesn’t allow me to type in zip code or course name. I would give it 5 stars if I could use app
Great golf app! 5/5
Tons of great features and content!!! Definitely HIGHLY recommended for any skill level to help track progress and stats.
Terrible Update 1/5
By Lost the App
The recent update is total trash. Some ballache ruined a great app! Can’t even share my round with friends with taking 26 separate screen shots. #LostTheApp
Still OK, but better before update 3/5
The app is still ok and works fine but the update removed some nice things. I miss the online round summary you could see. Now it just shows basic information about the round. Most importantly, I miss the shot tracking. They made it so getting a distance of your previous shot is only available to looper members now. I'll keep using it because it has all my rounds in it, but I guarantee there is better out there now.
Watch app 2/5
The watch app is awful and gives only one approximate distance. Other apps give Center,Front and Back of the green. It also doesn’t provide any distances for hazards, traps etc.
The app was great before the new version launched in the summer of 2018. Since the new version launched the app crashes almost every time I pull out my phone to check yardage. If the app would stop crashing it would be 5 stars. Other than the crashing I really like the app and would like to keep using it. As you know the proper modulation is required. Please fix. Thank you.
Upgrade is unstable 1/5
I’ve used old version without a problem
New version I get white screen of death consistently
Screen doesn’t initialize all the time it seems
Looking for a new golf app that works
Used to love this app 3/5
I have used this app for several years and loved it until this year when it went from a5 star to a 3. Partway through my round, this app now often cuts out and just shows a gray screen. Very frustrating. I will try others instead.
Update is TERRIBLE 1/5
By Ryan Shinazy
I downloaded this app when I started golfing and loved it, had awesome format and was user friendly, ever since the recent update and all the changes I HATE it! I am only going to continue using it because it has ever round I’ve ever played on it otherwise I’d switch apps because of how much I hate the new format
Easy to use app, best one I’ve found 4/5
But why happened to seeing the scores of your friends? Missing that feature immensely as me and my buddies would watch each other’s scores when we knew they were playing.
Loss of picture 4/5
If the signal is a little weak the picture goes blank since the upgrade. On the old system that did not happen
By Zoo Cage Keeper
Great app. Really appreciate the tips scorecard distance options and view. Thanks have used it for years.
Don’t “improve” it! 3/5
I have used this app for several years and found it to be very useful. However, the new redesign seems to be buggy. I have had to kill it and restart it because it will hang on a white screen. You can only wait so long to get distances while playing.
The feature where you turn it horizontal to get the total score seems to be gone.
Thank you. 5/5
I've been using this app for a couple years. Tried them all and this is my favorite. Works great! Please go back to the vertical scorecard!! I will gladly change this back to a 5!
Last upgrade wiped out all of my rounds 2/5
I’ve found this app to be useful and fairly accurate but the last update wiped out over two years of rounds. I’m currently looking for a better app.
Love It! 4/5
Great app! Using for over a year! Used latest update last Friday and loved the changes, but the screen goes white and you have to close and reopen the app to proceed. Hoping there is a fix in the next update.
Lost focus 3/5
Used this app for years. Great scoring app. Unfortunately, the new update has placed tips and ads on main opening page. If I wanted these, I would install an app for those. Need to provide a user option for opening page - ads, tips, lessons or go right to find course and play.
Update Missing Feature 4/5
Love the app, but the update removed the ability to take pictures during a round, which I used all the time. Now I have to exit the app to do it, which really isn’t a big deal, but now the pictures aren’t available when you view your rounds.
Update: the developer told me the feature was removed but is being reconsidered for a future update.
Automated hole movement 5/5
Is there anyway to make the holes automatically move to the next hole? Especially for the Apple Watch? Maybe once yardage gains distance over certain amount it auto switches to the next hole. I don’t use scorecard so this would be great.
Completely Unusable 1/5
Have had this app for a few years now. I used to be able to use it on the course and it was pretty reliable but now it is completely unusable. I am able start the round and by the time I get to my first tee shot and check the distance to the pin the app crashes and all I see is a white screen. Some times I am to restart the app and get more then a white screen. Sometimes I am even able to enter a score, mostly though I am not. Once in awhile it will locate me on the course after restarting but then it will crash and back to a white screen it goes. I have been able to enter the scores at home when I use my iPad so I can track my rounds but the app is complete useless on my iPhone. I am not sure if these problems are because I have an iPhone 4s but all this started when the app was redone. Currently looking at dedicated gps devices right now.
What more can you want? 5/5
Price is perfect. Usually within a yard of my rangefinder. (When pins are middle) Love the electronic scorecard. Great app. Keep up the great work.
Great App. Reduced it by one star because new updates removed the “sand” feature. Still recommend
New Version won’t load 5/5
By Pin Seeker
7-27-18. I am updating my review to a 5 because the developer team has worked hard and fixed the problem.
Been using SXS for a couple of weeks on my iPhone 8. Liked it very much. Paid $15 for looper upgrade. However just downloaded updated app today. Opens but quickly tells tells me my session has expired and to log in again. I deleted it and tried again. Same thing. You need to check these updates out before publishing.
Bad Update 1/5
By Mother Deuce
Have used this app for years. The new updates have me looking for something new. Track shots now requires upgrade. The interface is not user friendly. I can’t get the app to recognize my profile as a woman playing from the women’s tee box. I’ve tried it y last 3 rounds and giving up. Too bade, it used to be awesome.
Difficult and confusing 2/5
Entering a score on this is way too complicated. As far as I can figure, you have to hit Save after EACH entry for EACH golfer or your score is not recorded. Hitting Save Hole # doesn’t go to the next golfer or offer any feedback. Worse, going to the next golfer doesn’t give you any warning that you forgot to save the score. If you only enter Save Hole # after the last player, it only saves his score and no others. I figured this out after 10 holes. Luckily, we also kept score manually.
Updating my review 5/5
Thank you for the response to my inquiry. This app is amazing.
Great app, but needs better watch integration 5/5
Love the app, but wish you had the option to use the Apple Watch gps vs the iPhone’s gps...
Won’t save 1/5
Was happy with this at first but recently played a round and when I tried to save the round it would act as if it saved, but it never saved. I re-downloaded the app and now all the info from the round (shot track, score, etc.) is gone. I paid for the upgraded version and it’s not working...a little frustrating. If I didn’t already pay the annual fee I would’ve uninstalled.
Not Full Featured 3/5
No club distance input, no measured drive distances, and no ability to override the phone auto lock. Everyone I know who uses a GPS app plugs in their phone to the cart or brings an external battery. Without these features, SXS just can’t compete.
Really like 2/5
Comes in handy. But downgrading the rating with the loss of shot tracker. Scoring screen is too cluttered with the extra blocked counters. Might be time to find an alternative.
Best GPS I’ve used 5/5
Update: these guys just released a really nice new interface. Keep up the good work. I got this app as a potential replacement to my bushnell. After using it a few times I upgraded to Looper. It’s well worth the upgrade. Awesome app.
