For the Iphone, 29.99 and looks to be a pretty good app, but would love to hear someone using it to tell us a little bit about it.

LOL. I do that also. Constantly in search of something to save me from paying $50 annually to Skycaddie for a subscription.

From using the Golf Logix for Iphone, I know that it eats batteries. You really need an auxiliary battery pack. I think the GL might be a little more accurate, but I have not used the Golfshot.

What I tote around the golf course..

Fairway -   :taylormade-small:     SLDR - S 3HL 17*

I use it on my iPhone all the time and have since fall of 2009. It gives me pretty good GPS accuracy and I check it with my Bushnell hand held if I am not sure and it is usually a yard or two off. What I like is the statistics it saves for me and the percentage of fairways hit and putts per round. I don't have it on all the time and use less than 30% of battery per round and can get 36 holes easily.

I actually prefer GolfCard as it has more capabilities and is cheaper.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade Tour Issue Superfast 2.0 LCG w/ USPG Black Ops Pearl X 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade SLDR TS 13* with Aldila NV 75X
3 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 18* (bent to 17*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"

LW: 60* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
Putter: Mannkrafted Widebody Rattler 34", 71* lie, 4* loft

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I have it and use it all the time, I think since I've updated to OS 4 the battery life is better, I used to lock the phone at certain times in bewteen holes, like our 9th is a par 3, so after I got the yardage at the tee I would lock it, have lunch, then the 10th is a par 4, I would turn it back on when after I've hit off the tee.

The stats are great, I think the distances are pretty well spot on, worth the money. Viewti 2010 offers alot more stats, haven't used it though. Only thing I wish Golfshot had were stats for approach shots. It only lets you do hit, left, right, stats on your tee shot, not approach.

Note: After I updated the gps was moving all over the place, I'd be standing and over the space of 5mins it would be moving 10y long then 5 short. I emailed and got a response to do a hard reboot, holding home key and power button. It fixed the problem up. So I guess if it's not behaving try that.

Just as a recommendation, I would set up all you account info, load all the players names and courses you plan on playing ahead of time. Not that it is time consuming, it is just easier when you are sitting on the couch... plus, on the course you don't want to be monkeying with that stuff...

Golfshot (non-GPS version) is FREE and its incredible for keeping score and stats. I use it and every time my round is over, it sends me an email with a visual scorecard and stats for the round. Plus it keeps your lifetime stats online at golfshot.com. Again this is all free.

I started using this app about a month ago. I sold my Skycaddie SG5. I love it. I would suggest turning off bluetooth, dim the brightness, and make sure your phone's location services is set to ON. Set all program location services to off individually other than golfshot. With my iPhone 4 setup this way with a full battery I can EASILY make it through a 4hr+ round without killing the battery.

Started using golfshot about 3 mo ago and love it. My buddy has a golf GPS and golfshot is always within 1-2 yards.
Playing partners love to get there scores via e-mail. Does use alot of battery power just remember to turn off things you don't need. I use it on an HTC evo

I downloaded it for HTC Desire, tried it on one hole and it worked great. Next thing I gotta do is try it out for the whole round.

Golfcard didn't have my home course, so I went for Golfshot. Unfortunately the Google satellite pictures are still old and you can't see the golf course, but all I need it the yardage.
