Executive Caddie + coming exclusively to Nokia Lumia Windows Phones with augmented reality

Executive Caddie for Nokia

Last week we reported on the possibility of the popular and highly rated golfing app Executive Caddie coming to the Nokia Collection in the Marketplace. Today, WPCentral can confirm that this is indeed correct and we'll see a new edition, called Executive Caddie +, headed to Lumia devices in the first two-weeks of May. What's more, we have all the details below including exclusive screenshots.

Boasting the "largest and most accurate Golf Course Database in the World", the app is very well done and has even won a Windows Phone app challenge. Evidently it's so good, Nokia decided to add them to their growing list of exclusive and unique apps for Lumia phones, including the popular Lumia 900.

Executive Caddie for Nokia

Executive Caddie + builds off of the current app in the Marketplace (available for free) but adds some new and unique features, including:

  • Tournament scoring
  • Real-time leaderboards
  • Group heckling with toast notifications
  • Additional social features
  • Themes to match the Lumias, including Cyan, Magenta, White and Nokia Blue

But perhaps the coolest feature is this one: GolfScope. GolfScope is described as

"...an augmented reality view of players on the golf course with live player and scorecard information. Basically, a player can point his phone at any other player on the course and the player’s avatar and round summary will appear in the overlay. The overlay can be tapped to see the other player’s scores, stats, and other round information in real-time. GolfScope is a patent pending technology."

We're not even golfers here and even we're impressed with that feature. We'll have a first look at those augmented-reality shots come Monday, so tune back here at WPCentral if you want to check them out.

One thing we're constantly impressed with at Nokia is their ability to sniff out talent and bring that to their customers. Executive Caddie + looks to be another great find for them and should help sell the phone for those business and golf-fiends out there. Seems like a great match to us.

Fear not if you don't have a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone though, you can still download the regular Executive Caddie for free here in the Marketplace.

What happened to Nokia reader? Is there an ETA for that?

scottaii says:

Hahah, brilliant little idea of the scope. Although I can't imagine everyone on the golf course using the app (let alone having a WP) its still great to see these ideas though.
