Shot Tracer App Reviews

0 add


I hardly use it anymore because it always crashes. When you select a landing spot the magnifying glass doesn’t work all the time, sometimes it’s ball tracking is awful and nowhere close, when you try to edit ball flight manually if you touch the screen it completely ruins the ball track and you have to start over, and it crashes when you try to save the completed video (all that work for nothing). There has hardly been an updated version that hasn’t had major problems for me. I use an iPhone 5s. Your mileage may vary, but I’ve been extremely disappointed. I should note that when it does work, it’s a very cool product. Good luck!

Slow to peek

Not sure why, but every shot I try to trace the line starts out way slow and by the time the ball peaks and starts to fall then the line starts to move faster and then the line peaks. But it’s slow to catch up to the peak time. Not sure why. I filmed on a tripod and far enough back. When I adjust the flight time editor, the line still starts it slow but after peak the line falls super fast to catch up with the ball landing time. Would be an amazing app if I could get this working but every shot I do is the same

Best one because it has the most features

App has a bunch of features that make it really awesome. So you’re not only buying the shot tracer but it also includes lots of other features that are easy to use and really great for Instagram and coaching purposes.

Always Crashes

App is trash. Wish I could leave 0 Stars. It always crashes when I’m trying to edit vids. Don’t waste your $6

Waste of $$

I don’t typically write reviews, however, this app is a complete waste.

Would buy it again

The only app on the AppStore that really traces your ball


Would buy it again!

Keeps crashing

Just downloaded the shot tracer...uploading the video, it has crashed twice on me. When you purchase an app for 5.99, you just want it to work!

What a fantastic piece of technology!

I am very surprised how well Shot Tracer is able to track the ball flight by itself. The app has worked flawless and I am very happy with my purchase.


Best app in the App store right now!

This app is insane👍👍👍

This is crazy! It is like five apps in one. It traces the ball flight, the swing, the putts and also on a 3D map. How crazy is that!! I am really impressed how well this app works and how easy it is to use. Especially since it has so many features! Amazing app, keep up the great work!

Just awesome!

Works fantastic

Incredible! Just like on PGA Tour

I usually don’t write App reviews but this app is absolutely excellent. Not only does it trays your ball flight completely automatically you can also add really cool stuff like a 3-D map and swing tracer effects. Highly recommend this app to every golfer I play with. Thanks for this awesome golf app!!!


Finally an app that traces your shots!!

Great app!

Works just fine!

This is the best one

This is exactly what i was looking for. I love the map Tracer feature and how simple it is to use. Did not expect this app to perform so well!

What a great app!

Would buy it again

Works as advertised

Great piece of technology. Can’t believe how well this app works on my iPhone now. It has come a very long way. I first bought it at the beginning of the year and it was alright but now a few months later it is beyond impressive. The automatic ball tracking and all the other incredible new features have made this my favorite golf app!

Great app for teaching golf

I am a coach and this app is absolutely perfect for me. In glad it Does not require Internet to be used. The putt tracing and swing tracer are fabulous teaching tools. Tracking the shots also works great. Great app.

Wow simply wow!!

This is by far the best golf app I’ve ever used. There are so many features not only automatic flight tracking but swing and putting and awesome special effects. I really love this app. I would rate it six stars if I could!


I want my money back. It has not traced a ball accurately. It takes too long to trace the ball. It is very hard to use.

Not good

This app does not accurately track the ball. I have tried over and over and nothing will work. Please help.

Hard to work

Not easy to work. Trying to get distance and it’s confusing and not working. Trace line is totally off. Worst app I ever paid for

This app was a bummer

Been using for about 4 hours. Crashes constantly and when I do get videos to save the shot timer doesn’t work. So ball stays in the air forever.

Doesn't work. Very disappointing

App doesn't work. Has trouble picking up the ball and doesn't measure distance as the promo videos suggests. It's also not easy to use. Not worth it IMO.

Had for 3 months, not a single accurate trace

I’m a 9 handicap and tried getting one shot tracer recorded over the past 3 months. Not a single time as this worked. Not only that, it’s impossible to realistically use this app mid round when playing with friends. It takes so long to analyze that you need to hit your next shot before it’s done or you’ve finished the hole. I’ve read and re-read the instructions. I’ve viewed the tutorials multiple times. The bottom line is this app is so spotty that use while playing is impossible. More to use if you’re on the range with plenty of time to wait and wait for the video to be analyzed only to see it wrong yet again. I’d ask for my money back but this company is so section 8 they don’t even have a website.

Didn’t work

Keeps crashing. You run the tracking and it competes but then sticks after it says 100% done. Very annoying. Still doesn’t work after un-installing and re-installing.


App constantly crashes during editing and saving on an iPhone X. Very disappointing. I’m looking into other shot tracing apps

Tried 4 videos and did not work for any

Not worth it


This app has never worked for me. I load my videos and it always just says its analyzing and then never works... never. Wish I didn’t waste$$

Terrible app

Not user friendly at all. Does not accurately track ball flight. I repeatedly tried tracing my shots with this app both automatically and manually but was unable to track the ball flight anywhere close to accurate. I’m calling bs on every video that uses this app. I’ve noticed, when zooming in, that most videos using this app are falsely representing the actual flight path of the ball, as well as, where it lands. For example, I hit a fade with my 3 wood and the automatic mode showed my shot as a draw and landed 50 yards from where it really landed. Not worth buying for the shot tracing feature. Maybe for putting, chipping, and swing tracing but not shot tracing.

Don’t be stupid like me

Not user friendly, it freezes, it take forever to get upload a 10 sec video, I spent $ 7 on nothing, this app need to start from beginning, there needs to be updates and this isn’t, I have a iPhone 8 and I can’t get one video uploaded. don’t buy it. So disappointed.....

Doesn’t work

Purchased the app and attempted many times to import existing swing video into the app. Without exception, the app crashes every time. Saw the same reviews by others but decided to give it a try regardless. Also saw that there were many positive reviews as well. However, for me, it didn’t work at all. In summary, I’d say do not waste your money on this one. Disappointing too because it looks like it has a lot of cool features.

Complete crap.

Worst $7 I’ve ever spent. Every time I save a video after what feels like hours of trying to trick the app into doing what I want it to do... the videos save all kinds of messed up. A real son of a glitch, if you take my meaning. And within the app there is no way to contact any sort of customer service as I’m sure most people who download this would like to ask for a refund. -5 stars. Sorry guys.

Awesome App...When it Works

I love everything about how this app works, unfortunately it only works about 2% of the time. It’s incredibly accurate at tracking and tracing the ball in all but the most overcast of days, it just crashes so often that I don’t even waste time to try it anymore.

Shot tracer

This doesn’t work like it claims to. Very poor quality. Not satisfied and would like money reimbursed or credited.

Good but not perfect

Its a fun app when it actually works. In my experience so far, it works only 2 out of 5 shots.

It’s not good but it’s not there fault

I mean this app is trash but with running on a phone it is understandable because it’s not as good as the track man and the only way to get that level is to pay over 30$ which no one will do.but just admit it and not make the user pay 7$ for it. It is more like a 1-2$ app. So if anyone is reading this before buying it... don’t waste your money and buy it. Thank you

Want my money back

Has not worked for me sorry


Quite frankly, I just want the developers to see this because I want my money back. The app on all aspects just haven’t worked for me. I’ve tried the swing tracer, shot tracer, and putt tracer. All three took 30+ minutes to load and when I went saw the video it was terrible. It didn’t track my putt at all and the shot tracer said “retracing shot” about 6 times. I want my money back!!!

Shot no tracer/crasher

Horrible app, I have tried deleting it and reloading it, resetting my phone and everything that I have been told to do (through Instagram), and it still crashes. When it does not crash it traces the ball wrong! I did the manual way of tracing the ball and it’s slow AF. Don’t waste your money on this app.

Does not automatically track shots

I have been using this app since the day Greg Norman invested in the company. Not once, even with each update, has it ever automatically tracked my ball flight. Your video must be perfectly backlit or something for this feature to work? The past two attempts at using this app, it picks up the start line behind my body (not even close the ball) and there is no way to reposition where the start point is. Each time I have a video I am excited to edit and share, I come away disappointed. Have not tried the GPS/Map Overlay free trial. Can only imagine I would hold up the groups behind me trying to record and post a shot?! UPDATED APP 12/11/17 Another App update, another app FAIL. The auto trace feature is a joke... sends ball behind me. I use a tripod. I set up phone EXACTLY where I was taught. This never works for me. I have made ONE successful Shot Tracer App and it took me 20 min to manual trace. NOT WORTH THE MONEY. I am so disappointed.

Greatest app ever

I use this app atleast 40 times per round. It is the absolute best. Works 99% of the time

Highly suggested

It’s a little confusing at first but once you figure it out, it is a amazing app.


Hi I'm writting a review because I'm not conform with these app and i want my money back. It does not seem like how really is please tell me what can we do to fix this problem. I want my refund

Not great

It works for everything except the shot tracing part it analyzes it then crashes every time

Gimmicky, worthless App

Slow, cumbersome, gimmicky, useless app DON’T WASTE YOUR $$$$. Now developer says use more than iPhone 4. LOL I’m using an iPhone 7. Pathetic response!

DO NOT BUY Get “GottaGolf”

Very buggy constantly crashes and freezes does not work for me on my iPhone 8, waste of money the gottaGolf app is much more refined and a easier user interface I defiantly recommend that app. I’ve been using this app since it’s launch I’ve never uploaded a successful video Once video is edited it will save totally pixelated or crash after I’ve spend 10min editing the clip what a scam this shouldn’t be on the App Store I do not want to be contacted by developers app deleted!

The worst!

Worst app I have ever purchase! Complete waste of money. Horrible horrible horrible!!!

Fake review???

Please contact Apple! My review about your app is 100% real! And again I hope Greg Norman didn’t invest a lot into your company/this app!!! I’d seriously like to have my refund. This is by far the worst shot tracer all I’ve ever seen. So, again, please contact Apple. There is no real shot tracer on your app. I’ve lined everything up from every angle you could possibly film from and every tracer is totally far off track that it’s pathetic. How’s that for your “fake review”? Not to mention that I shouldn’t have to manually maneuver the tracer itself. This is so far ridiculous and I’d like my $7 refund please.
