SkyGolf Releases Android App for SkyPro

SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie® the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, has released the SkyPro® app for Android. This new app will allow owners of Android devices to practice and improve their games with the most advanced swing analyzer in golf. SkyPro for Android is available through the Google Play Store.

“Initially we launched only with iOS, however given the fact that 52% of smartphone owners use devices that run on the Android operating system, releasing the Android version is a welcome addition for our customers,” said Richard Edmonson, CEO, SkyGolf.  “Twice as many golfers will now be able to enjoy the benefits of using SkyPro to practice at home, on the range, or the practice green all year long, rain or shine.”

Accurate and easy to use, the SkyPro swing analyzer helps make practice perfect by using practice drills from acclaimed teacher Hank Haney and 2012 Teacher of the Year Michael Breed. Golfers can explore their full swing and putting with the help of SkyPro’s 3D interactive checkpoints. A SkyPro device is required to capture swing data and unlock the full functionality of the app.

According to Haney, “SkyPro is revolutionizing the way teachers help golfers learn and improve. Golfers can work on their entire game from tee to green, learning to build good habits during every practice session, not just when they’re working with their teacher. It’s such an effective teaching and practicing tool, that I believe every golfer should be using it if they are serious about improving their game.”

The SkyPro is about the size of a flash drive, weighs less than one ounce. It attaches easily to the shaft of any golf club just below the grip making it virtually undetectable. Thousands of critical data points about a golfer’s swing path, club head speed, swing plane, club face rotation, shaft angles and much more are instantly sent via Bluetooth to a FREE app on their smartphone to view their swing from address back to impact from any angle in true 3D high-definition.

SkyPro’s powerful 3D inertial motion sensors capture up to a hundred thousand data points from address to impact during the swing automatically. Playbacks of captured swings are displayed in vivid high-definition on a golfer’s smartphone. SkyPro features an ultra-high-speed capture rate of up to 3,200 samples per second, providing much more accurate swing data than typical video cameras capturing at 24-60 frames per second. Without pushing buttons or forcing a change in your pre-shot routine, SkyPro captures automatically such information as: club head speed, swing path, club rotation, face angle, swing plane, shaft lean, tempo and much more.

SkyPro makes practice fun and rewarding by building a repeatable golf swing with tips and drills from top golf instructors. Based upon the swing a golfer prefers or the one their personal instructor recommends, SkyPro offers multiple swing checkpoints and uses built-in alerts to help identify common faults at each checkpoint for club rotation, shaft angle and swing plane. Custom selectable goals and challenges measure progress making practice both fun and rewarding. Golfers can work on swing tempo, shaft lean and shaft angles at address and impact, backswing length, club head speed, swing path, face rotation and much more. Plus thousands of swings can be stored on a smartphone for more detailed analysis.

SkyPro has a suggested retail price of $199.95. It is also available for use with an Apple iOS app. Visit the SkyPro blog for more information about the new app: http://www.golfskypro.com/blog/skypro-now-available-android. For more information about SkyPro, visit www.golfskypro.com.
