As opposed to most other golf scoring apps, there are still no hidden costs or annual fees in Birdie! There are no annual fees for accessing our course database. Our database contains data for tens of thousands golf courses around the world and Birdie grants access to all of this data without any hidden costs or annual fees!
Birdie also doesn't contain any ad banners or similar annoyances.

Birdie has been made with golfers' needs in mind.

Range finder

Birdie delivers all the features you'd expect from a golf scoring application and the user-friendliness and fun experience, you'd expect from a native iPhone application.

Besides the ease of use and speed (compared to traditional "handwritten" score cards, especially when it comes to calculating the results), Birdie provides many enhanced features like the built in range finder (with and without GPS)* or the fully automated calculation of score card results. Birdie not only counts each player's strokes during a game, it also automatically calculates the game's results according to different rules including "Stroke Play", "Stableford", "Par Event" and "AGS".

When starting a round, you can optionally choose "practice mode". In this mode, you can track statistical data like putts, drive length (on iPhone 3G or newer by GPS), fairway hit etc.

Counter View
Use the stepper switch to increase or decrease the stroke counters. Use two fingers to change the counter by 2, three fingers to change the counter by 3 and so on...
Training round
When starting a round as "Training Round", you can track statistical data like putts, fairway hit, drive length etc. This is possible for up to 4 players in the flight.
Game Settings
Round setting like name and date can be easily changed. The course handicap for each player can be calculated automatically (based on the course rating and the player's handicap) or set manually - even after the game.

Hole Info

See all important data for the current hole, like par, hcp, distances and a hole description.*

* Hole descriptions are available for selected courses.

Statistics
Birdie displays automatically statistics for each player on each hole.
Range finder
Birdie automatically generates sophisticated statistics for each player. The player statistics can be filtered by course and time frame.

Just play golf - let Birdie handle the book keeping stuff.

Each player's individual course handicap is automatically calculated, accounting the handicap index, the course's slope rating (SR) and course rating (CR).

Golf courses can be added to the database with the help of a online course editor. Once added, import course data via the internet (par, HCP, distance, course rating, slope rating etc.).

Importing a golf course's data is very convenient: You can search by name, address or ZIP code and (in case you're currently on or nearby the course) by autolocating the course with the help of iPhone's location manager. When searching for courses by name, Birdie automatically tries to find nearby courses for the entered location.

In case you cannot find a golf course, just choose "On-The-Go" when selecting the course to play. You then may enter the basic data for each hole (Par & HCP) during the game.

Info
After importing a course's description, all data is available offline.
Score card
Birdie creates a full featured score card for each imported course. This data is also used to calculate your personal course handicap, the game result scorecards and so on.
Players
Choose up to four players per flight. Each player's individual course handicap is automatically calculated, accounting each player's handicap index, the course's slope rating (SR) and course rating (CR).

Score card
If GPS data for a hole is present, Birdie's Range Finder shows the distances in a clearly arranged view. Tapping on one of the measurements opens a Google Maps view (see next picture). GPS data for courses can be easily edited in our Online Course Editor (if the course is visible in Google Maps' satellite views). Alternatively, the green's GPS position can also entered directly on the device, using the iPhone's internal GPS receiver.
Score card

If GPS data for a hole is present, Birdie's range finder shows a Google Maps Satellite view of the area with overlaid distance information. The reference point for measuring the distance can be changed by simply tapping on its icon.

An active internet connection is needed for this feature.

Import

Use the built in range finder to see a map view of the current hole. Point your finger on the current position of the ball to measure its approximate distance to the hole.*

* Map artwork is available for selected courses.

Use an elaborate solution, not a bunch of features

Birdie focuses on golfer's needs. Instead of distracting you with fancy features, it provides all essential functions you'll need and expect from a golf scoring application in an easy to use and compact application.

Birdie integrates perfectly into the iPhone OS. Here are some examples:

Game results
No more calculation errors. With Birdie you can access the scorecard for a round anytime with a single touch of your finger. Including round statistics. Use the "Send" button to send the game results via e-mail as HTML scorecards or as CSV files.
Game results
With the Share Scores feature, it's possible to send played rounds to other Birdie users via WLAN or Bluetooth connections. The transmitted rounds are fully integrated in Birdie on the receiver's side, including player statistics etc.
Timer
A common situation during a game of golf: The ball flew into the rough and isn't visible on first sight. To assist you during the search, Birdie sports an easy accessible built-in search timer.

Perfect for both: iPhone and iPod touch

Birdie is perfectly suited for use on an iPhone or iPod Touch during a game of golf: One of the biggest problems with all available web-based golf score applications is that they are mostly unusable due to no or very unreliable Wi-Fi and cell connections on most golf courses.

Birdie is perfectly usable offline, which makes it well suited for the iPhone in low or no reception areas as well as for the iPod Touch.
