Meet Mr Smooth and Miss Swinger - two freestyle (front crawl) stroke animations showing you great stroke technique! Watch the animations just before going for a swim to help you visualise improving your own technique for faster and more efficient swimming.
If you struggle with any part of your stroke from swallowing water to low sinky legs to developing your catch, then this insightful tool will be invaluable to you.
- 8 viewing angles including directly overhead and underneath
- Slow motion, pause and frame by frame forward/rewind*
- Remove the water from view for extra clarity
- Control of swimming speed (strokes per minute)
- Synchronised views across all angles (so you can pause and see that same position from any angle)
- Two fundamentally different but efficient styles of stroke, select the one that best suits you as an individual
* Hold your finger on the screen to bring up the jog wheel and rotate it to speed up or slow down the animations. Or when paused, rotate the jog wheel to forward and rewind frame by frame
This extensive app also includes three full articles on using the animations to improve your technique and a full comparison of the two stroke styles on view - 'The Swinger' and 'The Smooth'. Find out why each one is a great stroke technique and how to make it work best for you.

Ratings and Reviews
This app doesn’t distract with heaps of superfluous features. It is very focussed and to the point as well as stable.
Minor improvement possibility: The gadget for adjusting the stroke rate requires some getting used to. If I want to see a stroke rate of 60, I’ve found it difficult to specify precisely this value (as opposed to 59, 61 etc).
All things considered, a great first version.
Shuts down when using slow motion. Fix please!
Beautiful and informative
A great app to help you visualise the "smooth" and "swinger" variations on freestyle (I didn't even know there were different stroke types).
Plenty of viewing angles, both stroke types, speed controls (so you can slow down and study the action) plus a stack of info makes this worthy of its price tag. Peanuts to what you'd spend on half a dozen swim lessons to learn the same.
Nicely presented too. V happy.
