Look, we realize that some companies don't have the resources to develop apps for multiple platforms, and in some cases (some very limited cases) it makes sense to publish on the mobile OS that has 12% of the market. But Nike isn't one of those companies. And so it still kind of miffs us when they take two years to bring a sports app like Golf 360 to the Play Store.

But enough about Nike's continuing failure at proper cross-platform support. Golf 360 is a training app aimed at aspiring pros. The most useful portion of the app is the golf scoreboard, which supports up to four players and comes pre-loaded with "26,000 courses" from North America and Europe. Scores can be synced with the web service to track your history and improvement, or lack thereof.

For players who want to take a more active roll in golf training, the Golf 360 app includes recommended workouts and recorded golf swings from pros with helpful analysis. Naturally the app ties into social services both within Nike's system and the popular networks, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Photo uploads include an option to overlay your score on your snapshot.

Nike Golf 360 is a free download and there are no in-app purchases. You won't have to pay a penny to use the service, though I'm sure that Nike would appreciate it if you bought a polo or two from the pro shop.

The app was not found in the store. :-(
