Anyone have specific phone-based apps or tools you like to use? More and more seem to be coming out.
Here are some of the ones that I've used.
Freecaddie - App on my phone. $FREE
have used it for several years when I don't have my GPS charged. it provides only basic distances to the front, middle and back of the green but it quickly finds courses near by and is easy to use.
3bays Golf Swing Analyzer - Device you attach to your club with an accompanying app on the tablet or phone.
I haven't used this in a few months but overall I like this device. it attaches to the club by inserting it into the top of the grip and records your swing data which you can then download and visualize in the app. The visual graphing of your swing is neat though I'm not sure exactly how accurate it is. There are just some strange but consistent things happening in my swing and I'm not sure if they really are or just limitations to the accuracy of the device. One pain though is that since it's attached to the club, if you want to change clubs, you have to move the device and -in theory- go back to the app and tell it which club you're now using. Otherwise, if you started with Driver and told it you had driver, all the stats would be recorded as if they were with your driver, until you go back into the app and change the club it thinks you're using.
UberSense Golf - App for Iphone or Ipad - FREE
Love this app. It will let you use your device to easily record your golf swing at the range. Then you can play it back and compare it to other swings you've had or other pro's swings and see frame by frame how the two swings compared. Helps you identify things you do differently than the pros. I really like this app. Also they provide a series of free downloadable videos from teaching pro's on various golf swing tips and fixes. They're short and easy to use at the range.
