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 ballplayer 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
- Mound distances: 60'6", 54', 50', 48', 46', 44', 38'
- Optimized for both iPhone and iPad
- Frame-by-frame analysis of pitching mechanics
** 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app, but need steady hands
This app works really well except that when a video is a bit longer in length, the scrubber on the timeline is very sensitive to the point where lifting up your finger will accidentally advance or rewind the video a few frames or more, which results in a significantly different speed calc, especially at shorter distance settings. Perhaps a way to further “zoom in” on the timeline to have the frame separation spaced further apart would be a worthwhile effort. Great coaching tool though; helps dial in what is effective for mechanical changes and their affect on velocity.
Very Good App but...
I would gladly give this app 5 stars however there aren't enough pitching distance options. It is missing the pitching distances (43ft, 40ft, 35ft) for Girls Fastpitch or at least a custom pitching distance option.
I like this app better than the ones where you have to tap at release and tap again when the pitch is caught because I feel those apps leave too much room for error.
Developer Response ,
Hi Bucket_Pinata, I specifically made a similar app for Girls Fastpitch softball which includes 35, 40, and 43 feet mount distances. You can find it by searching "softball radar gun" on the App Store. It has a purple/yellow icon. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions and thank you for the positive feedback!
Great App !
Absolutely love this app ! Very easy to use and very accurate ! We have used expensive radar guns to track pitch speed and got the same reading using this app. I love the fact that it uses videos from my phone and with the frame by frame, it's very easy to pinpoint the release point and when the ball crosses the plate. Thank you for a great app !
