What's a good app for recording/tracking stats while playing?

What's the best app for tracking golf stats while playing that is easy to use while playing a round of golf?

    I use golf shot. It’s easy to use while playing and keeps the important stats like fairways hit, GIR, putts per round, scrambling, you can even track distance on drives

    I've tried both Swing by Swing, and 18birdies. 18 birdies is an excellent application in my opinion. Very easy to use, and tracks all relevant stats.

    I agree with the above. I have also used both SxS and 18birdies. I like 18 birdies better because of the ability to set goals. The one thing I didnt like about 18 birdies is you cant set up a stableford game like on SxS

    I've used Golflogix, several years ago, and now TheGrint. Both were easy to use, once figured out.

    I’ve tried several, and the ones I keep coming back to are 18 Birdies, Golfshot, and the Grint. I haven’t decided yet which one I want to pay for premium access (18 Birdies is pricey), so I’m still in kind of a testing phase. They all do yardages pretty well, interfaces are good, and stats are good.

    I used to use golf logic and I just tend to like satellite imagery for the holes better. Last I knew it was animated graphics almost.

    Golfshot. The two things that keep me using Golfshot are it keeps track of your tee club for each hole and it emails you your scorecard after each round. While some of the others do look nice I think none of them let input the club you used off the tee. That is a big one for me.

    I am curious which of these apps is fastest. I use my Garmin watch for the sake of ease. The software isn't great by any stretch but I tap it 3 times and I'm done on the hole.

    Noticed 18 birdies today changed there app. Most features now you can only access through the premium membership

    I've used both GolfLogix and the Grint- can be as in depth or as minimal as you'd like for any given round.

    The Grint gets my vote. Easy to use, and after the round is uploaded you get and immediate response from them showing your stats for the round. Well worth the yearly price.

    For guys that use them a lot, how do you work it into your pre and post shot routines so it doesn't slow you down?

    I've used The Grint and it seems really good, but I mostly forget to use it, and when I remember it winds up slowing me down so much I just abandon it after a few holes. Does it just become habit with time I guess? How long did that take?

    Another vote for The Grint. I actually enter my score post round when I get home so I am not fumbling around on my phone while playing. I also find this useful in assessing my round as I replay it in my head.

    On my scorecard I just add a column for FW and putts. I’ll note if I took a drop or had one in the bunker. The app figures the rest out for you.
