App updating

This app needs to be updated to iOS 11. I paid for this app and now I can't play it . Wish to here back from you as to when I will get the updated app. Not impressed after spending the money on it.

Is It Any Good?

Compared to its peers, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 is one of the best golf games on the iPad, but judged against the larger console gaming category, it falls a bit short. The swipe mechanic used to take shots works fine most of the time, but occasionally adds more power than you expect -- and little errors in the angle of your swipe can have tremendous consequences on screen. However, these controls do provide you with the ability to shoot the ball at a slight angle and add some English to it, which affects its landing. The commentary is also sometimes inappropriate for the situation on screen -- not in an offensive way, but it often seems disconnected to the player's situation. Players can create their own character or use one of the pros, but it doesn't tremendously affect gameplay. All of this said, the game looks great and the Closest to the Pin challenge is one of the better Facebook integrations of any app. Dedicated duffers might like parts of this app, but casual fans of the sport -- and young players -- are likely to get frustrated.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
