App Store Optimization (ASO) has become one of the major app marketing techniques. ASO is what drives native traffic for mobile apps on both iTunes App Store and Google Play. It’s equally important for a small indie app developer and a big app company powerhouse to …

Version 3.1.3 released on June 28, 2017
Minor fixes to golf course data and Golf Workout configuration.
Version 3.1.2 released on March 28, 2017
Improvements and fixes: - Siri can now assist you in getting your workout started, paused/resumed, and finished. For example: "Start a Play Golf workout with PING", "Start a Swing Practice workout with PING", "Pause my workout with PING", "Resume my workout with PING", "Finish my workout with PING". - Start a new Golf Workout from your iPhone. - Pause and Resume your workout on your Watch from the Force Touch menu (or use Siri). - Accessibility improvements on iPhone. ***The Apple Watch battery is used extensively by this app – we use ALL of the sensors. In our testing we are able to complete a 4 hour round of golf using all of the features of this app – starting with 100% battery and performing ONLY a Play Golf workout. With 42mm versions we are seeing at least a 4-1/2 hour round of golf is acceptable. If your Watch hits the 10% warning during play, you should switch to your iPhone to edit the scorecard from there. This is obviously not ideal – but neither is a round of golf over 4 hours. Watch series 2 has more than enough battery for a round of golf and normal/light use through the rest of the day. ***For the Watch Series 2 to be guaranteed to use its own GPS sensor it must NOT be in communication with your iPhone. This means that after you start your round (and the course data is loaded) you should turn off your phone’s bluetooth and wi-fi to ensure the GPS sensor in the Watch Series 2 is being used by the PING App, instead of the phone GPS sensor. This is by design for Watch Series 2, and not something that can be changed or adjusted. After your round, turn bluetooth and wi-fi back on, open the PING App, and go to Golf Workouts to view your information. You may have to wait a few minutes for the data to be transferred automatically from your Apple Watch to your phone. Watch Series 1 MUST have a connection to your phone to get GPS data, and the GPS location is from your phone’s location, not the Watch Series 1’s location.
Version 3.1.1 released on October 06, 2016
We’ve upgraded measuring your shot distances! - Measure that ripped tee shot by marking the location of the tee and then where the ball finally comes to rest using the Force Press menu, or by long-touching the map view. Forgot to mark your tee shot location? No worries, we'll use the location of the tee box you’re playing from instead. - Check out your measured tee shot distances on the scorecard on your iPhone, and your average driver distance for the round. Upgraded GPS assists you in picking the right club to make the right shot. - Better distances and less waiting. - Accuracy is now indicated by a color outline on the map view. Green is spot on, swing away with confidence. Yellow is okay, but might be off by about one club. Red, well you might want to step off the distance. Bug fixes and performance upgrades: - Better performance when going to the next hole. - We sent the data files to the gym to shed excess weight for better performance. - Fixed a bug related to courses that do not have tee box locations in the course database. ***The Apple Watch battery is used extensively by this app – we use ALL of the sensors.

According to a new survey conducted by the French startup Stardust, 50% of the apps published on the App Store and the Google Play can be considered as ‘living dead apps’. Zombies turned out to be extremely popular in Hollywood. From the drama to the comedy, it’s like every single genre has to be zombified at some point. Over the last few years, apps turned to be an extremely profitable business for some companies, but …
