Softball Radar Gun +
iOS Universal Sports
Turn your iPhone or iPad into a portable Radar Gun, accurate to +/- 0.5 MPH.
I wish I had this app growing up. Radar guns were way too expensive and pitching coaches rarely encouraged "throwing hard" over "accuracy". Well, now we have iPhones and iPads capable of filming slo-mo, 240 FPS video... and we have them readily available at every game.
I made this app to give every softball player and parent the opportunity to not only measure pitch speed, but also to analyze pitching mechanics with a very simple tool.
** APP FEATURES **
Portable Radar Gun
- Load videos from your Camera Roll
- Capture the release point and plate crossing video frames
- Speed calculation is based on time and distance traveled
- Stats accurate to +/- 0.5 MPH (slow-motion video)
- Perfect for all age groups

** IMPORTANT **
This app does NOT rely on your reflex time to calculate pitch speed, like many 'stop watch radar gun' apps. Instead, you will use the iPhone's powerful camera technology (preferably 240 FPS slo-mo video) to accurately capture the pitcher's release point and plate crossing, resulting in extremely repeatable pitch speed calculations.
