I really had high hopes for this application and I probably purchased it too soon. I mainly purchased it for use with my Gear S3 watch but there is no stand-alone application for it so it just won't work for me. I don't like having my phone on me all the time while playing. The developer does answer though and that's a amazing thing. Hopefully they will offer standalone help for my watch in the future.
For a free application you can't complain. It gives you accurate distances to the front, middle and back of the green. Also the ability to see on the map how far it is to bunkers, creeks etc. No method in the globe I would pay hundreds of dollars for a golf gps when this application does everything for free via your phone.
use with my samsung gear watch plus have link. love being able to look back and see shot history and love getting shot data and recommendations on the watch. only thing i would add is a fast method to see distance to hazards on watch.... can easily obtain data plot layups or carries. amazing program
Amazing tool! Free ver offers helicopter, green, distances to hazzards and target areas. Simple to navigate from GPS to scorecard and Next hole. Analysis and club features are Premium version. I use it for distance readings, then fill in scores after the round while the round is new in my mind. "If I had hit that fairway, or created that putt!!"
First time using this application and very happy with it. It gives you accurate distances to the pin which is an awesome help. Got to obtain into the habit of clicking the shot tab immediately after taking it but that's my error. Would highly recommend it
I downloaded the application to use with my Galaxy watch, but was disappointed to learn you have to pay £16 PER YEAR (non-refundable and up front) for that function. I paid the subscription but then learned the application uses the phones GPS (not the watch) and needs a constant link to your phone. Then, the link drops if you have the phone in your bag and you walk away from it !! "Who wants to play golf with a phone in your pocket". Overall, a very cumbersome and disjointed system if you wish to use a watch.
Amazing application but there is no method of quitting the application without force closing it.. Everytime I'm left with a "golf pad is still running" notification that does not go away. Needs to be fixed before I use it again. Also why is smartwatch sync a premium option? Should be free..
Absolutely the best application out there for golf. Tracks every shot with detailed analyst and accuracy. Adapts to moveable tees and pins. Adding a course is easy, and they verify. There is a minor learning curve, but by the third hole I was a pro. Perfect video and FAQ. Novice, Amateur or Semi-professional, this application is for you.
tried to use this application as it's the only one that will work with a Galaxy watch supposedly. Galaxy watch tells you first you must begin around with this application on your phone. well you begin around with this application and it tells you you cannot use it with a Galaxy watch unless you pay for Premium subscription every year don't think so. and when you test and use it on the Galaxy S9 Plus the screen just goes dark so you can barely see it on the phone either
I ordered Golf Pad Tags and live in the UK. DO NOT ORDER these if you live in the UK. I got charged VAT and Royal Mail handling fee. Both fees were in total in excess of £23.00. Thats a MASSIVE ADDITION to the cost and shipping fee that I already paid. I contacted them to inform them of this and they ignored this and I got NO REFUND of any costs.
I love this app! I use it every time I play a round with my friends. It's simple to use and very helpful on the course. A lot of my playing partners are now using it when we go to play a casual round together. My only dislike about this application is the method they run their Dream Android games competition. I won an 18 Birdies towel and they wouldn't send it to me because I live in Australia. It's a little qualm, but don't you wish your merch going global so that everyone in the globe is using your app?
My original review of the application was negative but with the positive and fast communications from the developers and subsequent modernize to the application I can not fault it. A unbelievable tool to use on the course. Now I need to obtain more Fresh Zealanders using it to obtain all the benefits it offers.
Alright, giving 5 stars now after 18Birdies improved the GPS so now works nice and fast and accurately (Was my basic gripe). Amazing with statistics, hold on improving this and it will continue to impress! Amazing fun socially when you obtain a few buddies onto this app. Seems to be limited love to those outside the US for the 'golfing bucks' and prizes from using these, but is the case in so a lot of tracts of life,
Amazing application for keeping score and the GPS has always been beautiful good. My largest issue is that it says I'm a 2 handicap. I've never broken 80... not sure how it's calculated but something is off. Might have something to do with the par 3s?
Amazing for keeping score and stats. GPS worthless. Cannot search current zone most of the time. Standing in the middle of the fairway it will present me in the rough 50 yards away. When it does present the correct zone it's still off by 20-30 yards. I use it for score and stat tracking only. If they can obtain GPS to work, this is the best application available.
The stats are awesome for a free version. I really like that part. The huge fail on this is GPS. It's slow, doesn't load 80% of the time, NOT accurate at all. Stats are amazing but GPS is a must. For now I'll search another but if the GPS gets method better, I'll be glad to come back.
Update: Contacted customer help squad to resolve issue. The help squad member that replied to my email was very friendly but provided no answers to the intelligent watch issues. He indicated he would talk to his development squad and obtain back to me. Two months later no response and subsequent emails go unanswered. Very disappointing experience overall. Doesn't work correctly with android device wear watches. I purchased a intelligent watch specifically for this purpose so it's extremely disappointing. The worst part is that the fresh ver of the application has somehow broke the GPS distances altogether. They are now consistently off 10+ yards where they were almost spot on for me previously.
Fresh review My latest review was from 2013 so i thought i would modernize it. I ahve tried Golflogix and Golf Shot (two very amazing apps) but they were kind of pricey and nowhere near as amazing as Golf Frontier. Plus the creator of golf frontier takes pride in his work and always is willing to help. From something easy as if your course doesnt have the logo if you send in the logo the creator will modernize it. Same with clubs if you dont see your clubs allow the creator know and within days it is updated. Best application out there.
Replaces my SkyCaddie sg5 I've had The Golf frontier application for over a year and really never used it until my SkyCaddie died the other day. It was easy to just pull up the app, search my course and begin playing. I'm sure there are a lot of variations and variables to this application that I have yet to learn. I do believe it will replace my sky caddie. I'm not in the mood of spending $300 for a fresh SkyCaddie when this application looks like it will do just fine for me.
Neat Application Only used it for range finding thus far, and I'm impressed by its accuracy. Now started to use it to record scores on my intelligent phone. The interface is simple to use I find. However, I've two small niggles. Can you enter your official handicap for use in the Stapleford score calculation and the scorecard you obtain when you embark on an 18 hole android game but call it a day after nine could do with an edit screen.
Very amazing application Loved the free trial model. Purchased to add courses and continue using. I run this on a Galaxy Player, so no true time satellite for me, but I wonder if you could have it add the score up after round without wifi. Currently I have to wait until next connection to upload and obtain total. Still 5 stars from me.
Comments updated.. First impressions - I bought the pro ver and thought its worth it. Amazing value for money. I've now tried it for 5 games. Locations for improvement: would like green in regulation automatically calculated and also screen to automatically move to score card after round completed to present score or have a "next" button to obtain there. Its not intuitive on how to obtain to score card. Overall a very amazing app.
How can a golf application be any better than this one? Wow! Phenomenally acurrate! Easy or feature rich, you choose! After you use it a couple of times play the video and/or download the user instructions. True nice extras for improving your game. Showed some to my pro and he downloaded it right then and there.
I had the Frontier application on my Windows phone, but started out with a totally useless but free application when I went to Android. I finally located the Frontier application and purchased it for $2.99...so cheap it's basically free. I like the high contrast screen which makes it simple to see in bright conditions. Very satisfied to be back with Frontier!
GET THIS APP, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!!! I have tried a lot of golf apps, but found I was disappointed with them all. I have owned Sky Caddie, On Par, and Golf Buddy. While I was not disappointed with their performance, I was constantly dealing with dead batteries and trying to remember to charge them. I never have to remember to charge my phone, I do it daily. I search the yardages to be accurate (checked versus other GPS), the customer service phenominal, and the aerials an added bonus. Create sure to set the GPS to the highest setting.
Amazing app, very accurate Overall really amazing app, has some problems with accurate distance when cloudy and rainy. Nice to be able to hold scores and handicap index. But for 5 dollars you can't beat what it does for you. Also when you email them, they actually fix any issues that are brought up
Easy or complicated U can use this simply, just yardage, or complicated, scoring maps, sand saves,putts taken etc or something in between. U can change the white background 2 black 2 save battery. GPS is accurate. Developer very helpful. If u have the free ver obtain the make batter its worth it. Hold scores, obtain a handicap. Brilliant.
Beautiful amazing golf GPS Seems to be beautiful accurate at least close enough for me.. It's helped my golf score I hope it does the same for you.. It seems when the screen is off it takes a minute to obtain the yardage modernize but I'm rarely in a hurry on a golf android game
Look no further! You've found the best golf gps application on the market! It's a great tool for the avid golfer and the developer responds to his e-mails! The fresh updates are AWESOME! You can track a ton of stats, all while you play without slowing you down. Absolutely the best golf gps application you can find and definitely the best price!
11/10 for service - 10/10 usability First course I downloaded was out of date - in fact the fresh layout wasn't even on Google Earth... I emailed Golf Frontier Pro who offered my cash back or if I could possibly wait - he would sort it out. He kept me updated via email and rectified the issue ... it now has the correct layout !!! how a lot of other application owners would go to such lengths and provide such a private service ??? Brilliant service and an extremely usable application ... Glad I didn't just accept his kind offer and slag the application off ... Awesome
Love the application so far, as I've only now getting use to its features. It calculates drive distances, but I've not seen where statistically it logs results to support you. Would also be nice when practicing drives one could use the distance feature without going into a round of golf to measure yardage. I've tried several driver/ball combinations and would like to see the results in yardage differences.
Amazing until latest modernize After the latest update, the course I play most often is messed up. The yardages for the Front 9 present up on the back nine holes, but the hole descriptions remain accurate. Would have rated higher if this was not happening.
Awesomw app! Works great! I have used it two courses so far and it was very accurate. Used it with my range finder and was within a a couple of yards. Some holes it was spot on. Just depended on where the flag was placed that day. Excellent app!
So far so good. I used to use couple GPS apps when I play. This one seems work ok. I don't like to input scores here, just use the GPS. The rotation button allows me to switch from yardage to course view. It's very handy. But I have to drag the cross tag to my position in order to view the distance yardage, that's inconvenient. I don't know what's the point to have a circle tag somewhere in the fairway, and then you have to drag it to your position in order to obtain the distance. This doesn't create sense to me.
GPS fails It use to work great, that's why I purchased the golf frontier pro. But lately the GPS doesn't seem to position me on the course correctly. When first starting the software it knows my zone and shows the courses near by, but while playing golf it shows me in the middle of a 4 lane highway. Golf frontier got back with me and I belive it was the installation of the application Next Radio that was causing golf frontiers GPS issues. After Uninstalling Next Radio the golf frontier started working correctly again.
