The PGA of Canada launched its new mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices Wednesday.
It’s a free app that is available to download immediately on the iTunes and Google Play stores. It allows for both members and fans to interact with PGA of Canada pros, its news, and social media streams.
It’s fairly simple to use and literally puts everything related to PGA of Canada in the palm of your hand – which is exactly what a mobile app should do.
“The new PGA of Canada mobile app is an exciting communications tool designed for association members and fans of the game alike to stay more in-touch with golf in Canada,” the PGA of Canada’s CEO Gary Bernard said.
If I had to critique one aspect of the app, it would be that when reading a full news article, it takes you away from the mobile experience to the main PGA of Canada website – which is not optimized for mobile, so the user experience is a little off.
That said, it does feature a ton of information for its users. The PGA of Canada “Find a Pro” search tool, and the live scoring from PGA of Canada national championships are great additions. I’m sure PGA of Canada members appreciate the members-only section as well.
The app was developed by Apps Developer DOT Ca Inc. in Edmonton.
