Has anyone used the new 18birdies app?  Advantages, Disadvantages?  The weather here has not permitted me to play gold all year, but I was going to use the app when I went out on Friday.  I will post my comments here.

I prefer The Grint.  I also have used Golf GameBook with buddies who live around the US, although now that The Grint offers the same features I am attempting to convert them to it.  I tried 18Birdies, wouldn't say it's bad and maybe I am just used to The Grint but I prefer it to 18 Birdies.

I use 18 birdies. I like it. It tracks the usual stats and you're able to set up games with friends. Plus it's free.

I like it, but fiddling around with my phone on course is breaking my concentration. Thinking about getting a watch with basic distance info vs. app and range finder.
But if you’re ok with using a phone, the gps is really helpful for choosing clubs and determining safe lines to play. Very revealing and has helped me get into good position for the next shot.

It works well on Apple Watch 3. Easy to track stats on the watch.

Anyone have input on the betting/side games on 18birdies and if it incorporates differing handicaps for the games? or does it assume everyone is the same or close hdcp?

example: 3 players and in stableford, all three have gross pars, but player 1 has a net eagle player 2 has a net par and player three has a net double eagle. will the app assign a point value accordingly?

I just wish there was an app that JUST tracked my stats vs one that has a scorecard, gps, stats and the kitchen sink thrown in. Would make it a whole lot simpler because some of these apps are overly complicated.

I use the grint for this. Use a regular scorecard while I play and keep track of score, putts, driving accuracy and hazards. Go to thegrint.com afterwards and enter it all in. I enjoy it a lot more than having a phone out throughout my round.

I use an app called SwingxSwing and it works very well. I compared distances with a Bushnell Pro X2 and the yardages were spot on. I particularly like the ability to see carry yardages and angles. It is somewhat of a pain to keep taking out my phone. I am looking into something I can attach to my push cart that will hold my phone.
