Nike app gets an upgrade

Nike’s latest update for its NG360 golf app has new functionality including a ‘Learn From the Best’ feature. The app provides score and stat tracking, Nike+ friend leaderboards, swing analysis and gear recommendations, and with the latest update users can now share customised photos.

The ‘Learn From the Best’ feature allows a golfer to analyse slow motion swing videos from Nike pros Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. With the ‘Levels and Comparisons’ function users can measure their performance in a variety of categories against other golfers and Nike pros. With the Levels tool, users can see how they stack up across scoring average, greens in regulation and putts per round to help pinpoint areas for improvement in their game.

The NG360 updates for Apple iOS devices are available free from the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The NG360 app will be available for Android devices later this summer.
