  • iSwing is such a great app for the price. Tiger woods and V1 while amazing still lack some of the ease of use that most golf apps offer. 12.99? too much for me. V1 is stil great for my laptop.

  3. 3. APPS FOR GOLF CONTINUEDIn summary, iSwing is certainly a good start if your looking for an app in this space though even at $2.99 for me is a littleimpractical, as it doesn’t allow for split screen analysis. Tiger Woods: My Swing certainly has the wow factor with great graphics,and being able to go through the bag on Tiger’s swing from front-on and down-the-line is a must for Tiger enthusiasts. I feel theprice isn’t quite justified when comparing to the many features of V1 Golf.For me, V1 Golf seems to be the far superior app, with a huge library of tour players to choose from and superior ease of use withsplit screen analysis, so it is certainly worth the money spent.iSwing V1 Golf Tiger Woods: Steven Giuliano is an Instruction Writer for Golf My Swing Infuzion Magazine.
