    Just saw this in the marketplace, seems very promising based on what it "can" do but I can't get it to connect to the server, maybe because they just put it up?

    I said I would change it when it works lol. Figured maybe it would jumpstart them a bit. Guess I should change it to 3 until fixed.

    LMD - we ran into a couple server-side issues after posting the app. We've pulled it after seeing your review and will republish after we fix the problem and will let you know!

    What attracted you to the app?

    There aren't many golf apps for android. Freecaddie is nice but has no map feature, golf card doesn't have many courses in my area and I hated the interface. This looks really promising which is why I posted for others to check out. I was a little harsh giving one star at first didn't realize it was beta but I am really looking forward to this and seeing what it can do, it send like it could really improve your game. Was going to use it this Saturday! I will continue to give you feedback though.

    just wanted to mention, I'm looking forward to this as well! I was using intelligolf on my winmo phone, but this looks like a good replacement for it on android!

    Best golf app I have ever used was BBGPSGoLF on Blackberry. The only tough part about that one was that you often had to set up courses which takes about 20-30 minutes. That app did everything you could dream of. It marked shots tracked distances per club and logged them onto a database. It suggested clubs. It tracked scores for a foursome.

    The best part was that it was FREE.

    BBM and BBGPSGolf are the ONLY things I miss from my BB days. :(

    PS I am a terrible golfer too (who isn't?) LOL

    LMD - We fixed the app and published the new version. Please let me know what you think and any changes you'd like to see!

    Brian, Vicious, and Extreme - if you happen to get the chance to use it, would also appreciate any feedback you have and any features you'd like added.

    I actually update my thread on your site earlier today. Still can't get clubs to work.

    Haha I am a tough sell! Actually I never updated it because he took it off the market. I am excited about this thing getting fixed though so I will do all the testing he needs.

    LMD - can you create a new account and upgrade your app to the latest version and see if you have any issues? I think we've fixed everything. Let me know.

    Okay got it to recognize the clubs now in the program, really cool! I will test out more functionalities soon, but one feature I really suggest is on the range finder, let three point that dictates the yardage not be exactly where the finger is pointing because on these screens are small enough that your finger gets in the way of accuracy.

    LMD - Please let me know what you think! I see what you mean about the rangefinder. If you do tap and hold below the pin, it'll still lift up, and you can better see where it is hovering. We'll make this more clear later. Really appreciate the feedback!

    Looks 100x better, much smoother and works well. On the website side things look better also, the clubs work now and the only suggestion I can give here is when you click the drop down menu, once a club is selected once you should have at the top of that menu something like "recently used" or something so that you don't have to scroll all the way to the bottom for all 12 clubs if it doesn't start with A. Also there are a lot of duplicated clubs such as the TM Burner, which isn't a big deal, just letting you know.

    Also, as I stated on the site it would help a lot to not have to enter an e-mail for a player when adding by hand. I will use this program on the course here soon but haven't had much time to go out. Definitely a FANTASTIC free program, 5 stars!

    I did notice on your site you mentioned v.1.0 and that v.2.0 was beta for android but on my phone it says v.0.2

    Thank you for the feedback. Please keep it coming!

    I'm passing along the club design input and the critique on the email requirement for adding a player.

    I really hope this works well because it looks awesome and I've already gotten all my friends excited about it. I'll look silly if it's bad. Please get all the kinks worked out by spring. :)

    It looks fantastic. Does this give instant feedback on distance of the last shot and distance to the green? Do you have to enter the next shot before you see it? How does that work?

    Thanks.
