Golf GPS SwingU - Latest Quality Issues
Oct 25, 2021
Great app. Love the satellite view of the course. My only issue is that when I'm on the course, the yardage won't update on my galaxy watch 4 unless I look on my phone. Unfortunately, this makes the watch app pointless. I wanted to try to set location to always, but that isn't an option in the app settings, only "only while app is in use". Samsung Z Fold 3, Android 11. Help please.

Claims to be a free app but if you have paypal, swingu will start charging you 16 a month and they hide their name from your bank statement to look like a regular PayPal purchase. The app doesn't work well either, only satellite view worked for distance which no one uses. SwingU is Scam app, golfpad app better and won't fake being free. Who pays for a golf GPS app?

Very unstable on Apple iWatch
When running SwingU on my watch and phone I have to constantly unlock my watch and reopen the App. All settings are as per the instructions. Very frustrating

Watch can’t see app
Spent all day trying to make the link. Never mind. I'll buy a device that works.

Could be good if bugs removed
I have been trying to use this for several weeks now, but have yet to be able to correctly enter the score for a full round on my watch. At some point in a round, and usually more than once,I will find the app expects score entry for the next hole rather than the current one. Worse, there seems to be no way to go back, nor any way to edit the score for a hole once the app has moved on. These two features render the watch app effectively useless, so I intend to remove SwingU and find a better solution, rather than paying the Premium subscriptionas I had intended.

Serious issues with Apple Watch
I've simply stopped using this app as constantly freezes via my Apple Watch. Just too unreliable.

It’s good when it works
Good app when it work. That is the key. And most often than not, it has trouble connect to it server and can't locate any courses

I Always seems to have difficulty loading the course..takes several attempts sometimes 2 to 4th hole before it works. This after multiple attempts to load. Find myself using my range finder and Garmin watch to navigate until this app decides to work. Very frustrating

Worthless app
Can I give zero stars? Negative five? I paid $30 for an app which refuses to work with my Apple Watch no matter what I do (just constantly says “looking for round”). Can't enter my real score on a hole because it caps it at 15 (oh I'm sorry I guess everyone is a golf pro who never has a bad hole). Signing up immediately inundates you with golf spam (which the developer denies but is 100% what happens). Not worth it if it was free. Never buying an app without a trial again.
