    Droid X or any Android not capable?

    Tonight I went to the local golf pro and was fitted for a putter. He was able to place his iphone 4S in a holder on my putter and the ping app measured my swing. I asked him why the app wasn't available for android and he said the accelerometer and the gyroscope on android wasn't precise enough for the app.

    Was I fed a line or is the iphone's accelerometer better than any android?

    I emailed Ping but haven't received any response.

    Line of bs.

    Accuracy will vary of course from phone to phone ( manufacturers could use different measuring instruments or set the read out in milliseconds differently )

    Most developers make apps for iOS before android. If its not on Android yet, it likely will be soon.

    But yeah, I have to agree, line of BS.

    I think maybe what he meant is that a lot of android phones don't have a gyroscope, a sensor which can measure the orientation angles and such, most of the new android phones have them, not the razr, but the nexus and rezound do..

    Edit: That app looks pretty sweet though..

    And this android is on many phones. IOS is on what 5 phones but only 3 (? I think 3 ) are using the latest and greatest so it's easier to support it

    Thanks for the quick replies. The app did work great and I ended up ordering a custom Ping putter. Now all we need is spring weather.
