Even if you pay for Premium Lite, you will receive constant pop-ups asking you to pay for the highest paid plan. So instead of enhancing your golf game, it just annoys and pesters you, even when you’re using it on the golf course. Which is too bad, because the features of the Premium Lite tier are pretty good, but the hostility toward the user has become intolerable. I’m currently looking for a different app that will simply take my money and leave me alone. The design focus of this app is apparently marketing and up-sell and not user satisfaction.
This is the best golf app and 110% better than 18Birdies app. Hole19 is simple (few clicks and using a scroller to choose your hit) and intuitive to any golfer. You can edit our shots on the spot while walking to your ball (18Birdies app does NOT have this feature until you finish each hole) Overall I rate this a 10 out of 10. I've been using this over 2yrs and it worth getting the Premium to keep track of your shots and history.
Will not let you use without buying premium package.
The app is overall very capable. There could be a number of improvements in the UI as some features/functions are not a intuitive as you’d expect in 2022. It is my favorite golf app overall but it feels like it could be much more if they just got a few more things refined. But don’t let those points turn you away, just be willing to accept them until they have time to improve.
Thanks Hole19 Makes golfing more enjoyable
I should not have to pay for a calculated handicap
I used the app the first time today and decided to try their 14 day free trial premium subscription. There’s a lot of great features in the premium edition, but I was disappointed in the map detail of the app. It was under my understanding that the maps are more detailed in the premium edition. The maps looked fuzzy and that was my only downside. I’ll continue using the app to get a better user experience. Hole 19 works great with smart phones like the Apple Watch. Better than 18 Birdies. The app loads right up on my Apple Watch as soon as I start around. That was the biggest highlight for me. I’ll update my rating if I find it more enjoyable than the three stars I’ve submitted.
I like the app but for my home course, the distances are 10 to 15 yards short compared to rangefinders. I have checked against 2 different ones. Makes using Hole 19 challenging.
Excellent app, very useful and very much appreciated. Thank you.
The design and features are nice. Shot by shot mode is awesome. Just the scoring screen. The touch sensitivity on the scoring screen is atrocious. It registers less than half my taps, so scoring takes longer and is more frustrating than it should be.
