GolfStatus Android 4.0

GolfStatus Android 4.0

We are excited to announce the release of version 4.0 of the GolfStatus Android app.  Like the iOS app we released late this summer, this is a ground-up rewrite that will allow us to more rapidly release new features and improvements in our development pipeline. With our iOS and Android apps now in parity, we can’t wait to show you what we have up our sleeves.  However, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. First, here are a few highlights on the new Android release displayed on the new Google Pixel: 

Free Hole-by-Hole GPS

FREE hole-by-hole GPS, providing you with accurate yardages to the front, back, and center of every green (note: this feature will not appear unless you are close to the course):

Improved Reward Presentation and Delivery

GolfStatus loves enhancing the golf experience with rewards, sweepstakes and pin prizes. We’ve made this process more seamless in version 4.0.

Color-Coded Round Details

Your full scorecard view, personal bests, and round history have new color-coded scoring.

Card-Style Notifications

In an effort to make things feel more Android-like, we’ve adopted slick new card-style notifications.

Simplification

In addition to taking out a few things, we simplified the avatar upload in settings, cleaned up our social sharing integrations, added hole distances to the scorecard. And, for those of you with GHIN numbers, we’ve simplified GHIN posting by automatically triggering the request to appear after the round, rather than through notifications.

FREE hole-by-hole GPS is here!

Comment

FREE hole-by-hole GPS is here!

When GolfStatus first started, we held off on adding hole-by-hole GPS because the technology available was slow, inaccurate, and drained a phone’s battery. However, over time, smartphone technology and cellular networks have advanced. Today, we are happy to announce the addition of an accurate, battery-efficient GPS rangefinder to the iOS version of GolfStatus. If you use an iPhone, be sure to download the new version 4.1. (Don’t worry Android users, your GolfStatus GPS version is in the oven and should be done shortly.)


FREE, hole-by-hole GPS, providing you with accurate yardages to the front, back, and center of every green (note: this feature will not appear unless you are close to the course):


If you don’t want to use GPS during your round, you can always turn it off:


We give you an accuracy meter, so you know if the cellular network is acting up in your area:


Plus, we have a bonus feature for GHIN users: You can now post directly from the end-of-round screen, instead of waiting for the tee confirmation notification.
 


And, we've made it easier to see past performance under the Rounds Played screen, located on your profile:

Partner Spotlight - Home Solutions of Nebraska

At GolfStatus, we love making golf more fun and engaging with everyday mobile rewards, sweepstakes and contests.  Our partners love it too; they truly enjoy supporting those who play this great game. 

This month, we are spotlighting one of our local partners, Home Solutions of Nebraska.  Home Solutions of Nebraska is an A+ rated exterior remodeling company specializing in siding, windows, seamless gutters & roofing in Lincoln, Nebraska.  If you live in Lincoln and are unfamiliar with Home Solutions of Nebraska, you probably live in one of the areas that avoided hail and wind damage from the severe weather earlier this year.  If you live in one of those unlucky areas, you’ve probably seen a Home Solutions of Nebraska sign or two in your neighbors’ yards. Indeed, with great service, competitive pricing, and lifetime workmanship warranties, Home Solutions was chosen by many families to make their damaged homes new again.

If you are out at Pioneers Golf Course, be sure to find the Home Solutions of Nebraska flags. A good round might just get you a dozen logo golf balls, like last month’s winner Brian Mason (See Below). And, if you need any home repair, they can help with that, too.
