AP Powershot™ is co-founded by four bright young entrepreneurial school kids who won the Australian National 2017 iAwards, and their favourite university computer scientist who is a Queensland Community Digital Champion and a CSIRO STEM professional.
The vision of AP Powershot™ is to combine technology, sports, and games to create useful Apps for measuring the speed of a kick, hit, or throw.
This is a "lite" version of the App - specifically designed for Soccer players.
The App has two useful features: 1) it helps players understand and improve their kicking technique, and 2) it allows players to estimate the speed of their kicks.
The App works by recording short videos of the Soccer ball being kicked. While recording, make sure that the ball fits just inside the targeting box. The speed calculation is done by placing two small tracking boxes over the Soccer ball in an existing recording at the desired starting frame and ending frame. The App stores the three most recent recordings.
The usability and user experience has been improved: 1) on the capture screen a flashing targeting box and a recording countdown help the app user prepare to record a kick and allow the kicker to get ready before they kick the ball; 2) on the calculate screen the targeting boxes also flash to indicate which box was last moved by the app user; and 3) a bug has been fixed regarding how the app looks on iPhoneX and iPad.

Finally my son can now measure how fast his soccer kicks are. Took a bit of fiddling to get it working but awesome results.
This app has helped me with my kick speed a lot
Such an incredibly fantastic idea. Use it everyday for my footy practice!!! Love it!
