Just downloaded this and I'm curious about whether or not the stats like GIR, irons accuracy, & scrambling that are showing up with "sample data" are only available for those who have premium, or if they're showing up like that simply because I haven't input enough rounds yet?



Thanks!

Gives 18Birdies (https://18birdies.com/) a try.  I primarily use Arccos 360, but I'm in a group and compete in some online competitions through 18Birdies.  Just looking at it quickly, it gives a stat breakdown (with charts) of:
  • Score vs. Avg Score
  • Handicap vs. Trending Handicap
  • Par Avg. Breakdown (Avg. Par 3, 4 and 5 scores)
  • Putts per Hole
  • Greens in Reg.
  • Fairways Hit
  • Up & Downs
  • Sand Saves
  • Penalties per Round
You also get "credits" for logging rounds, which you can use to enter yourself in giveaways and random prizes

I'm actually trying to decide between the two....I like 18Birdies, but their displays for stats leaves a bit to be desired IMO. Grint's interface is much smoother & more appealing to my eye as well....I'm just a cheap bastxxx and don't wanna pay $20/yr haha

I've been using the Grint this year for over 50 rounds now. Free version. Really liked it and felt compelled to pay them the $20 for their premium service a couple of weeks ago. I like the additional stats the pro version gives you but really I wanted to use their 'shot tracker' option (able to walk off the distance you hit your shot and get an accurate yardage) that isn't available on the free version. I think the GPS on this app is great and realistic. Most other apps I've seen you get a mock up drawing of the hole, whereas the Grint uses actual areal technology. For me, I have more stats about my game that I could have ever imagined, but I'm new to using apps for my golf rounds. The Grint was the first and only one I've used but I haven't found one that has swayed me to change.

I'm still having issues with the free version. It killed the battery completely on my AW from 100% to dead thru 17 holes with a 30 min rain delay at the turn. They did email back quickly to turn off the health tracking to improve the battery life. Did all that but the next round couldn't get the AW app to load.  I could never get past the "quick round/continue round" screen any button hit would kill the app.  I want the handicap functions pretty badly but the hole 19 app continues to do everything well that I need and use very little battery life, but the one fatal flaw is no handicap tracking.

Just can't find one that checks all the boxes.

I have about 12 rounds recorded and I really like it. The GPS function is very accurate when I've compared it side by side to a range finder. I don't have any friends that use it, so I can't comment on the social functions. However, I could see that being a really good feature if you have a big group that uses it. I feel like I've gotten $20 worth of value out of it, if not more, so I might give the premium a try.

No, i'm fairly certain the only app that does is the Grint.

I don't use any apps on the course, but I like that the Grint has a website so I can just sit down and enter my scores and stats before bed or when I first get up.

They do give you several advanced metrics and stats with the upgrade. They were interesting at first but I haven't checked on them in months. It also gives you a shot tracker function that lets you walk off distances of shots. I upgraded specifically for this option but am disappointed that the app does not store these stats. Once you see your distance on the shot the data goes away. I was hoping I would be able to go back in and take all my distances for each club hit and really dial in how far I hit each club in course conditions. No go. At least, I haven't found out a way to do it.
Ultimately, I'll likely keep paying the $20 bucks each year as I think the app is great and hope they stay in business. The free version gives you more than $20 worth.
