Easier to use
At the beginning the app was not very user friendly to operate, however, in the last 6-8 months there has been a great deal of work done on the revisions making it much easier to use. Setting up a game and adding players to a team is much more efficient than prior versions. When adding players you create the team and the when choosing players you can click each one of the in a list instead of typing in their names one by one. The app has shown many improvements in single games as well as multiple games such as a front 9/ back 9 game for some groups. The leaderboard has grown a great deal as well. With the addition of the turtles for pace of play, you can also see the front 9/ back 9 leaderboards during he multiple game segment. Makes the end of game calculations so much easier. This is a great app and it should be used by more people. Some say it takes away the element of surprise, but it also shows what you are up against in a tight match or tournament.

Not for me
The reviews were promising but I couldn't get past the hoops needed to get it going. I have been experimenting with various apps to keep score for our regular game that typically consists of 2 groups of 3 or 4. We play variations of match play and Nines so this app had promise. First of all Nines isn't an option when setting up a game so that was bummer #1. Once a game is setup the iphone workflow to get into a game and get others setup and into a game is not so elegant. Very clumsy compared to say GameBook. My group wanted nothing to do with it when I tried to explain how to get started with it. Your mileage may vary but not for me and my group.

Scorelynx excellent for regular group play
If you run a group at your club, this is a great app allowing you to easily complete the final results after a round. I run a group that usually has anywhere from 12-20 players. Scorelynx allows for a variety of games (both gross and net) and includes skins if your group plays them. In addition to helping to finalize results, most find it fun to “watch” the action on the live leaderboard during play. It’s easy to use and does not take away from the enjoyment of play. You’re not spending a lot of time distracted from play. Highly recommend for regular groups as well as tournament play!!
ScoreLynx is native iPhone/iPad application that gives golfers a live leader board during golf tournaments, golf outings, or casual multi-foursome rounds. For the competitive golfer or golf team captains, having the ability to know where you stand in the tournament at any point in time can be the difference between winning and losing in your event. ScoreLynx setup for tournaments or multi-foursome play is fast and easy. Just create a unique "group name", then create a new game for their group. When the game is created you define the game type (several common games are available), skins type, course (you can easily create a custom course if your course is not available yet), and the tees to be played. You can also setup the game/skins payouts by specify the per player ante for each. For games you can setup the percent payout for each place your game pays off. The app will compute all your game and skins payouts and list each players payout amount. So when all the players scores are in, all that's left is to divide up the money and congratulate the winners. Users designated as their team's score keeper setup their foursome in much the same way they would on a paper score card. They add a team, and then add players to the team. Then hit "Start Scoring" and you'll see the leaderboard. By turning the device sideways a scorecard appears that allows a score keeper to enter each player's hole by hole gross score. The application figures out your net depending on the game type being played. Turning the phone back to portrait returns you to the leaderboard. The leaderboard is automatically refreshed as other players scores are posted. The leaderboard can be viewed by team, player, skins or payouts. Tapping a player on the leaderboard opens that players "mini" scorecard so you can see any players hole by hole gross and net scores. That’s it! It’s simple and easy to use, but will make you feel like a pro as you play through your round always knowing where you stand relative to the field. To tryout ScoreLynx you can use the generic group name of "Demo". Choose an existing game there or create a new one. Enter your own teams and players and then checkout the leaderboard. Try posting some sample scores.
