Anybody using an Android App that you would recommend?

Posted by: user106118 | Tue 3rd Aug 2010 12:32 | Last Reply

I just got myself an new HTC Desire and can't wait to use a GPS/Scorecard program .. any reccomendations?

What about Golfshake having its own GPS/Scorecard app integrated with the website .. or partenring with one of the app developers to make it compatible ..

That would be awsome ;-)

Yep it would be so awesome, I've wasted many an hour on it but have yet to reach a sensible solution.

Watch this space though.

I think the popular consensus is Freecaddie for GPS data, howfarami for simple driving distance and take your pick for score tracking.

All good ideas but I think you'll find that phones etc have been banned from competitions. so you'll no longer be able to use them in the monthly medal etc.

I used to use freecaddie for my iphone but it was miles out at my home course so I switched to golf shot GPS. I have now switched to an Android phone I have brought golf shot again for this format and must say I think it is outstanding. Much better than the freecaddie apps, it is a little more expensive but well worth it.

Phone GPS are banned for comps because they can apparantly give wind direction, speed and read greens, I wish someone would show me how they did that. I see people using them all the time in our comps no-one bothers really as I don't think people use them to get anything but yardeages out of them but I would imagine  if you played with a stickler he could get you DQ'd for using it.

So if you want to use something for a comp then get a real GPS as Mr Flood recomends but if it's just for casual use then they are ideal.

I also use the free golf pad GPS. It seems pretty accurate and the hole "fly bys" are excellent if you are on a blind hole or you want to know how far a lake comes over your line. Finally you can tap the screen to get distance to hazards etc if you want to know carry over a bunker.

It has the added advantage of being able to add your own course details and get it updated. I added the Breedon Academy course on there and within a week it was on there ready to use.
