From the article: Five Best iPhone Golf GPS Apps
Tell us about your favorite iPhone golf app, or the apps that were a waste of time and money. Do you agree these are the top five? Share Your Experiences
- Usually use Golfshot but just returned from Mesquite, NV and played Conestoga and the amazing Wolfcreek. Neither one came up on Golfshot on my Iphone. But I did enjoy the humility of never knowing my distances while hitting into oblivion. Any ideas.

- A little disappointed that Pocket Caddy reduced its price down to $0.99 (I originally paid $2.99). Don't get me wrong I think it is a steal for $2.99 and I use it just about everytime I play. It is the best on par 3s where wind and elevation effect my shot the most. I do like it because you can pick where you want to aim (like just before or after the water). I have used Golfshot as well and it is one of the better apps I have used as well.

Mobitee is the best
- I tried all apps and mobitee is my favorite. Only the power consumtion is a handicap.
- —Guest markus
- My beef was that when I changed phones I was told I had to pay the full cost of a new app, rather than an upgrade. I liked the app but refuse to pay another "full whack"
- —Guest Windbag
- I recently tried pocket caddy for the iPhone and it is great. It is a lot cheaper and accounts for wind speed and elevation change.

Have used Swing by Swing
- It's pretty good. Good stats, some humor from the owners, and as accurate as the GPS technology allows it to be. No complaints.

Please add this app to your list
- I have released a new golf app on the iTunes Store, iOver Golf, that will help you learn to put your eyes over the ball when putting. Check it out here: iOverGolf.com
- —Guest Craig
- I installed Pocket Caddy for my iphone and it is well worth the price. It is easy to use and automatically tells you where to aim based on wind speed/direction and elevation changes. You can use it to aim for the pin or the middle of the fairway. I highly recommend Pocket Caddy.

I found a way better app!
- You guys should try the AI golf app in itunes. It's so much better than a lot of the crap I've seen in these apps. The AI golf app is free too!

golflogix - I hate this app
- It may have the database of couses but no aerial view of the couse I played. With no aerial view, it bacase just an electronic scorecard 2) No club or ball tracking as advertised 3) Very difficult to read in sunlight 4) Foud it very difficult to navigate between screens

- Distances are accurate, wp7 and iPhone support, online charts, and you compete on tour with your Facebook friends!

Golf GPS APPS
- You have dismissed those apps which allow users to map their own course but in my opinion it is essential to be able to edit course maps. arial views are useless if changes have been made to a course because the google images are invariably out of date and if, for example, a green has been reconstructed the arial view can give a completely inaccurate impression of the shot required

2012 Rules of Golf iPhone Ban
- Yes, Bill - Looks like bad news for those who like to use iPhone and other smartphone apps to post a score or compete in local tourneys. See my latest story on smartphone GPS and the 2012 Rules of Golf: http://gps.about.com/od/sportsandfitness/a/USGA-iPhone-GPS-Ban.htm
Use of i phone
- Is the use of the i Phone not banned by the rules of R & A and USGA. Is it possible to take any disallowed apps off the i phone to make it allowable. See extract from Joint Statement issued in March 2011: "When an application that measures distance has been downloaded to the device, the application must be restricted to providing only distance information in order to conform to the Local Rule. If there are any other features or applications on the phone that gauge or measure other conditions that might affect a player’s play, such as a temperature gauge, compass or anemometer, this would render the device non-conforming regardless of whether these other features or applications are used or not."

- great app on the Iphone... but distances read longer than golf provided distance markers. so am baffled! like the idea that I don't have yearly subscription fees..and agree it uses up a lot of the battery...
