I use to really enjoy this app. You would send a question and get an answer. I have sent a question about why when I play in wind that is 20+, it says on my app 7mph the whole round. Never changes. I am still waiting for my answer. However, if it is time to renew, they are in contact. Two years ago they would have a five star rating.
The app quits telling me my yardage every time I play around home 4 or 5. 1/5
By Blanchard’s account
I have used the app 5-6 times now and each time it has quit working around hole 4. I can still enter my scores but the yardage doesn’t work. If I remove the app from my phone and then download it again, it’ll work for a few holes and then stop again. Might be something I’m doing wrong but I can’t figure it out. I also pay for the premium thinking that might help.
Easy to use 5/5
Love this app, easy to use and gives me what I want
Not a fan of new format 2/5
Sometime over last few months the app updated and it has not improved. Connectivity with Apple Watch is now intermittent. It used to work great! It also combines my 9 hole rounds in stats to make it 18 but will pull two different dates. This does not make sense. Lastly it used to track how many eagles, birdies, pars, bogeys, double and triple bogeys all all my rounds totaled. Now instead of getting the total numbers it just gives me averages. The app used to 4.0 star but not happy with it after update. It also needs pictures for the clubs in your bag.
Terrible With Apple Watch!!! 1/5
Was trying to replace my Garmin watch with my apple one, yet still have solid golf yardage. This app is awful. Keeps closing out on both watch and phone. Every call/text you receive (or any notification) forces you out of the app on your watch and you don’t have yardage. Super annoying. Complete waste of time.
Swing U Versus 1/5
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
Was great but not now 2/5
I get it. These guys need to make money and that’s the reason for the ads. But when trying to ignore them began to interfere with using th app plus being constantly peppered to start a monthly subscription I said enough. I used to navigate through all the ads and still manage to input my score while traveling between holes. At the end it was just too much of a hassle.
Apple Watch stopped working with this great app 4/5
By Jakey Gmoney
I have thoroughly enjoyed this app! It’s great and has helped my game, but all of the sudden it just stopped connecting and working with my Apple Watch. I have the Apple Watch 5 and it will not connect and show me my yardages or anything. The screen just says “make sure app is open on your phone then restart on your watch” and it doesn’t work. Really love this app, but if it doesn’t work with my app that’s going to pull me away.
Doesn’t work with Apple Watch anymore 1/5
I’ve tried everything I have a new Apple Watch and iPhone 12 just doesn’t work.
Great App! 5/5
By M. Martissa
Only problem I'm having is when using my Apple Watch it doesn't synch or, it tells me to wake GPS but, it doesn't wake. Maybe it's a hardware problem? Is this familiar? If so, how do I remedy it?
Versus not working 2/5
I got the app with the promise of getting drill recommendations based on some algorithms of my scores. I have played three round with two of the having the Versus program on, and I have yet to get any feedback from the Versus program?! Disappointed.
Not perfect 4/5
App runs well on the iPhone, not so well on the Apple Watch.
Best pandemic Feature 5/5
By John the "Weatherman"
The app never worked well with my 1st generation Apple Watch. That Apple Watch was way to slow to respond to the data. Well, that watch fell apart on my arm playing golf. The face and the back fell off. I got my money’s worth out of it. That day, I picked up a new Apple Watch before going home. I had not tried the app on the new watch until yesterday. I was pleased with how it worked. However, I use it to just track my shots. I have a laser range finder and use to often. The Apple Watch feature is perfect for keeping up with my health date on the course. Steps showed how much I walked even when using the golf cart. During the wet winter conditions, I love being able to track my steps and other data. I like the share feature too. New 6th Apple Watch makes this app a must use! Even with a high dollar range finder. Sticking my iPhone in my back pocket is easier hauling that significantly heavier range finder. If Verizon didn’t charge a premium for data on an Apple Watch I’d sell my range finder.
First day 5/5
Loving the yardage, and on Apple Watch!
No tracking 4/5
Really wanted to use this app, once I got it downloaded and was signing in I was asked for a credit card. It was then that I found that the reason for a credit card in the “free” app was so that they could use it track my purchases in order to target advertisements. To me this is totally unacceptable.
After further review I have found the the request for credit card information was NOT from SwingU, but from “Google Ads”. I apologize for that. I do plan to evaluate this app over the next few days, so far it looks really good.
Something's wrong 3/5
I have used Swing by Swing for 3-4 years. I used to love it. But for the last few months it has been so full of ads that it’s hard to even use the app.
By Salley #10
Too many pop ups
Do not subscribe to this app. I did and you cannot cancel the subscription. You cannot remove your card from the website. They would not answer phones or emails trying to fix this issue for me after weeks of trying. The only fix I had was to cancel my debit card and get a new one because of this app.
Nice but Inaccurate handicap 3/5
By Loved previous version
The app is nice, easy to use. But when saving my scores, it incorrectly registers which set of tees and the course rating and slope and it won’t correct properly.
Best Golf App Ever! 5/5
I’ve played at random courses in AK and courses in CA, TN, GA, HI and FL and this app has every course I’ve been to! Love the distance finder, it’s super accurate, and I would be lost without the course map. I’ve used five other apps and only use this now. Get this app, you won’t regret it!
Good Phone App, Horrible Watch App 3/5
The phone version of the SwingU app is pretty good. It tracks your handicap, it has an intuitive interface to input scores, and is pretty accurate on distances on the course. The club tracking is nice and the stat tracking is really informative on how you have played over several rounds too.
However, my issue with the app is mainly through the Apple Watch version. I’ve played 90 rounds with this app and the watch version FREEZES EVERY SINGLE TIME. I’ve even tried keeping my phone in my pocket while playing too, which is not very comfortable, and it still freezes. Restarting the app when this happens sometimes fixes the issue, but not for long. I even went out and bought the cellular version of the Apple Watch recently because I thought that it might help. No luck. It is very frustrating because I enjoy the phone app itself and get use out of many of the features. I just wish I could use the watch version more on the course and didn’t have to go to my phone after leaving every green to input my scores.
If the developers could figure out how to solve the Apple Watch bugs, this would be a perfect golf app. But for now 3/5.
This is the App for the pros! -from a pro 5/5
I can’t put into words how easy and efficient this app is to use and track my stats as I play on tour. It’s especially helpful for analyzing your rounds and seeing where you lost your strokes and what areas of your game need work. It DOES NOT drain your battery!! Such a plus because I will play 6+ hour rounds sometimes and I never worry about it draining my battery! You’ll love the app!
Doesn’t work well with Apple Watch 2/5
Won’t stay synced with Apple Watch. Periodically looses sync.
Super buggy not Worth 60 bucks... 1/5
Froze many time with my iPhone 11 max and apple six watch that are updated. Wouldn’t show the yardage without changing screens multiple times back and fourth. Had to turn off the watch in setting and back on. Super frustrating while trying to golf.
Can Not cancel subscription 1/5
It is nearly impossible to cancel this app. And on top of it they keep renew even though you cancelled it. There are far better apps out there that are worth the extra pennies!
Great app, however.... 4/5
By Another Hackattack
This is a great app and have used it a couple times now and the information is accurate however I’m have any problem keeping the app open on my watch during around and it is extremely inconvenient to continually have two open the app on the watch to get a yardage quickly, It may be something I’m doing wrong with the app so I’m open to suggestions if anybody has an easy fix for that…
Really accurate 5/5
By BGT Construction
Good app 5/5
App is good
Pairing with I-watch 5/5
By Pachy T
Having a lot issues during the round
Freezes, communication is lost etc
GPS DOES NOT WORK CONSISTENTLY 2/5
THIS APP HAS DEBELOPMWNT REQUIRED. I do not recommend it.
Terrible app! Takes minutes to load in, after multiple connecting to server cycles, you are left with infinite buffers. The app is useless because I seriously can’t load in to anything except the home page. I tried everything including deleting and re installing the app. The developers need to fix the app because it seems like it would be nice.
Needs a bit of work. Great base. 3/5
Love the app and the layout but the gps tracking needs work
This app sends notifications begging me to upgrade 1/5
By A. Sweeney
This is blatantly against App Store policy and just an annoying, awful practice. I don’t know how anyone with self-respect can code this into their app.
Wind factor and green 4/5
In northern Taiwan, the wind factor was often miscalculated. Also greens are often mid-identified🤪
IPhone 12 3/5
Is there a fix for the IPhone 12. Seems to not work well
Great app! 4/5
I love this app! It has helped me so much with my game. I do wish you wouldn’t have eliminated wind direction in the premium upgraded version!
Very unstable app in the Apple Watch. Very disappointed!!!
Issues with gps 2/5
The last 2 times I’ve played it doesn’t work after the first hole with my Apple Watch.
Rip off 1/5
By Taken by ProCaddy
I was solicited for 1/2 Black Friday deal and was charged full amount. Tried to immediately cancel and was charged for the year. Don’t be fooled.
Crap App 1/5
This app constantly interrupts your play with BS adds. Beyond frustrating and not worth the time.
By Just srarted
Perfect for a beginner golfer. Helps with the hole location and yardage
Missing old stats with strokes gained 4/5
Scramble data is important to me and the latest update seems to have ended this collection. Is it coming back? Since I’m entering much of the same info after each hole you should still be able to give me all the previous post round stats including the strokes gained.
This is for support not the App 2/5
I have used this app for almost two years. After using the free version I decided to updated to gain more insight to my game and improve. This really helped me and was very easy to use. The connection with pro help and tip videos is worth the cost. Then comes the announcement of Versus to get more detailed insight to your rounds. After 9 rounds the performance section just says there is nothing to show until after your first round. I emailed the support team and received responses but not a fix. Then all went quiet. Support is no longer responding to any further emails.
I will be looking for another app for next golf season.
New update has bugs 4/5
Overall solid, but the new update is not great. It crashes every time I try to see my “detailed” scorecard after a round. Also, most of the time it does not sync with my Apple Watch fitness.
Cannot use it on new iPhone 12 1/5
Installed it but could not do anything but watching its ads
I don’t want to upgrade 4/5
I would like this app more if every time I got on it , it wouldn’t keep asking me to upgrade.
Nice I got the hang of it - it helped my distance a lot - since at this time of the year there are not many yard markers 😎
Very easy and very accurate
