    Summary of comparison tests:

    "Regardless of the iOS device used, stimpmeter readings obtained with the iStimp app on the iPad 2, iPod touch 4th Gen. and iPhone 4 are different compared to the USGA stimpmeter and comparisons are not valid."

    But with a normal stimpmeter there is a ball rolled down a slope etc how do you do that on your phone Just slide your phone across the green

    If anyway wastes 69p on this then they need their head testing (whihc there is probably also an app for )
