golfshot on iPhone

58 posts in this topic

I'm pretty sure there was a recent iPhone thread, but I can't find it. I aplogize for any thread duplication.

Has anyone heard of the Golfshot GPS app? I looks amazing and has really good reviews. I'm interested in any STF feedback if any of you have used it. I'm very interested in both the GPS and the scorecard (and subsequently stats).

I haven't tried golfshot, but I ended up getting the AirVue GPS app when it was on sale for father's day. It seems to work pretty well but it takes a while for app to find satellites again when you resume the app from the lock screen. The yardages seem pretty good when you have at least 2-3 satellites.

I don't know about on the Iphone, but I've used it on multiple verizon phones (env touch, env 3) and seems to be pretty good.

I'm getting the env3, how does it work on that and does it cost money to download?

$3.99/month, or $1.99 per use... and I think some kind of free trial.

I use Golfshot (non-GPS) on my iPhone 3Gs. I love the app. The scorecard's very easy to use, and I've yet to run into a course that isn't in their database. The graphical stats are great, and the best part...it emails you your playing summary after you've completed your round. All for $0.99!

The GPS version looks interesting, but I think I'll stick to my Bushnell for on course assistance. The potential battery drain from running the GPS so often would be a major drag, and the $29.99 price tag for an iPhone app is rather steep.

I use ViewTi Golf for the iphone, and have no issues with it. a bit pricy at $24.00 but way cheaper then standalone gps.

these apps work on a ipod touch right?

Does it have GPS?

I know the Golfshot score card would.

I have it for my iPod touch.

You still get aerial views of every hole (as long as the course is in the 15,000 preloaded) and you can move the cursor around to where your ball lands etc. It will tell you how far you have hit the ball from the tee and how far to the green. Also the scorecard and stats are amazing and you can set it up to automatically email you the scorecard and stats after every round. Keeps your information stored so you can see your averages on each hole as you play it again compared to every time you have in the past.

I think it's a great deal for $29.99

It's not full GPS like with the iPhone. With the iPod touch version you can click anywhere on the hole and it will tell you the distance from the tee to that spot and the distance from that spot to the green.

My understanding is that with the iPhone GPS version you can do the same but it will give you distances to the front of green, hole, and back of green. I have never used the iPhone version or know anyone that does but that is what I get when I read the app description.

I've had this app for 2 weeks now on my new iPhone 3Gs and I absolutely love it. $29.99 is a bargain for for what it does (gps yardages, custom layup distances, score keeping, stats... it even emails you your scorecard when you are done. Love it! It even keeps score for a foursome!

I use ViewTi. The app works great and adding a course is a breeze. If you are shopping I would definitely advise checking it out. The stats tracking is nice too.
