I love my SwingU 5/5
By reg from Ohio
I have been a Looper for about a year and love my SwingU app. It is even better now that most carts have a USB charger so I don’t have to carry a charger. While others are fumbling with their lasers I have shot the middle of the green, distance to the water and the bunker on the right. I love it. The electronic scoring is a bonus. My only complaint is now that I actually measure my drives with the app I can’t hit my driver as far as I used to.
Then came the shocker.
I have never won anything in my life. Six weeks ago I got an email from SwingU saying I had won a Scotty Cameron puttering their weekly drawing. I said great all I have to do is pay $499 for shipping and handling right? No, they said, that is free. I chose the one I wanted and one week later it arrived. Amazing. Still can’t believe it. So when they say this week we are giving away a Ping driver they are not kidding. Love you SwingU

Freezes up a lot after half a round
Slow to respond and inaccurate distance 1/5
By jt tampa
Painstakingly slow response and frequently inaccurate by 10 to 50 yards.
GPS based on iPhone location not Apple Watch so phone must be near for accurate distance to the green
Password reset 1/5

I have requested several times to update password and I have not seen a return email?

Great tool for new courses.
Was good, now . . . 1/5
This was an excellent ap I used every round. Then they changed their name a bit but was still pretty good. Then they made more changes and now ap is very buggy - locks up my screen and responds slow, and loses satellite. Also it USED to email scoring to my mates after round- not anymore.
Good thing you “fixed & improved” this ap right up to near unusable.
quick score entry and yardages. seeing stats at end of round, or better yet the season has been an awesome feature. they also just started pushing top 25 instructors in the newsletter which brings them up a few notches over competition.
Free Is For Me 5/5
I thought I knew my favorite course better than anyone, but this app knows it best. The GPS is dead-on. The greens and hazards feature helps me decide whether to lay up or go for it. Knowing the distances to the front, middle & back of the green is key when I need to stick a wedge shot. The scorecard is really easy to use and I can even make it interesting by playing Skins. My game has improved and gotten more fun.
Best GPS I’ve used 5/5
I’ve tried all of the GPS apps and this one is by far the best. The interface is easy to use and the scoring is smoother than most others. They seem to focus on what matters and nothing more. Keep it up.
Free & Looper versions are great 5/5
I’ve become addicted to the scorecard and stats. I don’t even use the GPS all that much except off the tee box but tracking my stats is very very easy and it allows me to see where I’m struggling. Awesome value at only $25 per year.
Great app! 5/5
Looper Functionality Is A No Brainer 5/5
I love the Looper features of the app. It has improved my handicap without taking away the fun of the game. Features like “plays like” and “Club Suggestions” takes the guessing out of this he process and improves my approach. Scorecard is simple yet useful. Now if my golf skills could improve as well!
Distance Mark 2/5
Distance marking start out at 1000s as apposed to the actial distance. Wait a moment and the software corrects itself.
Love the app 3/5
By Fuzzybee 81
Good app, use it all the time. Make kit easier to enter old scores and it gets a 5star
Great app 5/5
This is the best app I’ve seen. Continually marking upgrades for improvements to the experience. I’ve used this all over the USA.
Amazing app, -10 shots 4/5
Real satellite imagery plus interactive map is the ultimate combo for trusting yardage and shot picking. You know your yardage to a tree is correct when you can see where the app thinks you are, and you see the satellite image of the tree with a line between the two. Easy peasy.
Been using this since it was called Swing-by-Swing. While there are a few small glitches that persist, such as score prompting mid-hole and not after hole sometimes, it’s still an amazing tool far better than catroony maps or non-interactive displays. I’d give it 5-stars otherwise.
Took 10 strokes off my game, and is freemium...can’t ask for more!
Upgrade = no good 1/5
Previous to the change, I had more options of things to track, such as penalties, sand traps, etc. Now it’s just strokes and putts, and it usually freezes when doing that. I maintain it cause my history of courses and rounds played are on it, otherwise it’s useless
Using the app 2/5
I’m not able to get anyone to contact me about the wind feature not working. I tried to upgrade and the message to me is I’m paid thru 2021. When it worked I loved the app.
Love the IPhone app but not the watch app 4/5
By Jag man22
I explored a couple of courses and love the detail. But after looking at the Watch app, I was disappointed that it only showed the distance to the green and not a picture of the green with the five grid lines showing distances.
Can’t record putts for others 4/5
I’ve only used this app for two rounds so far. Distances appear to be accurate within a yard or so. Scoring is easy and fast and there seems to be little battery drain. When I add other players I am not able to score their putts. I am using the free version at this point but would gladly pay if I thought that would allow me to score putts for others. Anyone know if that is possible?
Great App but kills the battery 3/5
By 20 yearSanDiego Ref
I love this app but I can’t use it after 12 holes because it drains the battery.
Osprey golf 5/5
By Strikes again
Best Golf App so far 5/5
Thank you ! Love this app now that I have an Apple Watch!!! Just played our first round and it kept score for 4 of us! Still working on learning but so far AWESOME!!! Thank you
RIPOFF, STAY AWAY!!! 1/5
Love the ease of using the rangefinder and keeping basic score but I paid for upgrade to Looper, which lets you track fairways hit, GIR etc. and after my first round those functions aren’t working anymore.
UPDATE: Still not working, and customer “support” says that they cannot refund or,cancel my subscription TO A SERVICE THAT DOES THAT FUNCTION AS ADVERTISED.
SwingU should really be called EffYou!!!
Best app out there!!
Free app works 3/5
The free app works but the upgrade which I purchased does not. It worked at first but not now. Help is weak.
By 3 Year User 2581
Payed for the extras which are nice but accuracy is poor. Sometimes right on sometimes off by 20 yards. Going from the free app to the paid doesn’t help with that. It did help me recognize the value of knowing your yardages.
Good app but needs work 3/5
By TM ZERO HERO
The gps locator is not accurate. Thinks I’m hundreds of feet away in random directions. But the features and courses available are very good.
Great app 5/5
Great app, would like the option to count puts for other players.
U golf 5/5
Great GPS app everything you need! 5/5
This app does everything I need it to and more! You will want to download this one!
Golf app 5/5
By Studley Vic
Best golf GPS ever. Collect stats is awesome as well.
Best golf record keep! 5/5
I've been using this app for over 700 rounds. It helps me for the pregame preparation, during game course management and after game analysis and practice planning.
Dr. Donald 5/5
If your swing is struggling and you don’t have the time to go get a lesson this app is for you. Phenomenal design impeccable instruction interactive and fun!
Mr. Will Golough 5/5
By Winning streak 8
Great app and getting better! With all the yardage finding gizmo’s out there today , my partners are constantly hollering at me , “ how far is it?” , they know SwingU is best !
App Kept Hanging 5/5
I really like this app, but the last time I used it (a week ago) it kept hanging and would not let me enter a score for several holes. I would have to close the reopen the app to clear the hang.
Reliable and easy to use 5/5
Best golf gps app I’ve used. Looper upgrade is well worth it for yardages to different areas around the green. Quick and easy doesn’t delay the round
Easy to use 5/5
This is the best GPS app I have used. It’s accurate and easy to use. I have recently upgraded to looper and loving it so far. Definitely recommend this app!
Works good, easy to use.
Freezes on course lady used 3/5
I’ve had this app for several years now. I like that it keeps my handicap. However, the past four times I’ve tried to use the app, it’s stuck on the last course I’ve used it on. I’ve tried al I know to do to correct it to no avail. Very frustrating! When it works, it’s pretty good!
The Best 5/5
I work at a 27hole public golf course as a Ranger/ Cart Person and like showing it off to all the golfers. It seems to be quite popular with the women golfers. Thanks for making a great product and useful tool for the game.

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.
By Brian Sokko
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.
