  • Too confusing

    By tbart4
    Firstly, I was put off by the demand for a credit card that the app “would not charge”, to track my personal content, which apparently included all sorts of streaming services. I don’t want to watch movies or play video games through my golf gps/scorecard app. All of those streaming capabilities were highlighted before I could do anything golf related. Secondly, there was no apparent way to add recent scores so that my handicap could be computed—just repeated windows demanding my credit card for “sign up”. Sorry, I don’t get how any of this was ignored by the positive reviewers. I deeply regret trying to sign up, and deleted the app before ever taking it on a course.
  • Nice app….gives me one problem though

    By petethakilla
    Very easy to use this app, and the tracking is great- but I’ve noticed it drains the battery on my brand new iPhone 14 pro. Not sure if this is the GPS doing it or if I am utilizing another feature that causes it- but it’s the only time my phone battery has any issues.
  • Apple Watch

    This app because add a strokes to my game. Specially, with my Apple Watch. It’s almost like you have your own caddy excellent app to choose for the average golfer.
  • Apps great… but recent issues with Apple Watch

    By El Chapo 5
    I had this app for over a year now and for the most part it’s been great. Recently however, I can not get it to launch on my Apple Watch. This started around the time of the update. It crashes every time. I’ve checked to make sure my devices are up to date, as well as deleting the app and reinstalling. Sorta at a loss at this point. One thing that would be nice to add would be to have the ability to link with your GHIN account. Not having to enter 1 round into both apps would be a nice feature.
  • Great stat tracking & watch app

    By DonPablo21
    SwingU Plus has great Apple Watch integration at a better price than most competitors. I use it to show distance to the green while playing, keep score on the course / track stats over time, and track distance with each club on selected shots. It was great to see the 7.8.0 update finally allow using watch GPS without carrying the phone everywhere, and the battery hit isn't bad (18 holes uses 45-50% of an Apple Watch 5 battery). They've also improved the UI in recent updates, but I'd like to see the stats expanded, particularly by adding data on where par 3 shots go (like the current driving data for par 4-5 holes) and by showing the breakdown of putting results (0, 1, 2... putts, like the current breakdown of birdies, pars, ...).
  • Doesn’t work w Apple Ultra watch

    By Nickname99122
    Playing a round the app on watch stuck at “looking for a round”. Otherwise the app on the iPhone 14 works well except drains battery very quickly. Update works now great app!
  • Phantom Rounds

    By Salzy59
    The Swing U app constantly opens itself up on my watch, which is super annoying and drains my battery. The watch app also fails to provide accurate yardages at times, even when my phone is unlocked, has the GPS on, and is in my pocket during my swing. The phone interface works well; however, I don’t want to have to go back to phone my after every shot/hole.
  • Love the app

    By D Nice 06
    It’s great to be able to get yardage, keep up with key stats (putts, GIR, Etc) and see the course yardage! Great app after 277 recorded rounds!!!!
  • Game Changer

    By WTFiswnamestaken
    Down loaded SwingU and used it today for a complete round. Very user friendly and took the guessing out of club selection. Gonna read up on the functionality and definitely leverage it regularly.
  • 1st Time User

    By fairtomidland
    This was my first experience. I’m not familiar yet with all the available resources, but I did like how there were availabilities for inputs of specific el elements such as putts per hole, driving distances, etc. What I didn’t like was that it took a while for distances to update on my watch. My experience with this aspect was much better with several other Apps. More need on my part to explore the capabilities of SWINGU 1st hole
