Golf balls have a way of disappearing out of site. Or cloaking themselves when they should be in plain sight, particularly as the leaves fall and the grass turns brown. Fortunately, there's a new app available for Apple devices that may well end the frustration of finding your once-lost golf balls.
The app is called, easily enough, Golf Ball Finder, and it uses the camera function to help find your golf ball as you search for it. What the app does is places a blue filter over the standard camera to help illuminate where your ball is. That filter works because it shuts out distracting light rays from green grass, brown dirt and the typical terrain you'd expect to encounter while looking for your ball. The app also lets you adjust for sunlight conditions (sunny and bright, or cloudy and gloomy) as well for grass type.
Now, of course, it'll be hard for the app to find your ball if the camera can't see it -- meaning that underwater or in a bush is probably not where Golf Ball Finder shines.
However, it is free and it can definitely help you look for the lost golf balls you should be finding. That's a great deal.
