Ratings and Reviews
Love this app. Version 5 takes a little getting used to for users used to previous versions but the additional features are probably worth the trouble. Version 5 has been a little unstable for me which gets pretty frustrating (and the only reason I don’t give it 5 stars) but hopefully the next update will address that. Overall a great app.
Useless if you are a parent
Great concept but there's no way I can separate my two kids numbers on their swings. You have to use different bats in order to differentiate. The problem with that is the historical numbers showing improvement in the different metrics include data from all bats, in other words, it's impossible to analyze one of my boys progress because both of my boys numbers are mixed together. Would give it 1 star as it is also difficult to use and the app should clearly explain what each metric means when you click on it (small pop up box with an explanation and links to more info). Just a horrible user experience. I wouldn't recommend to anybody. Making me want to look into Diamond Kinetics.
I love the app and all the other Blast Baseball apps. But I can’t stand having to use portrait mode to use the app. These should be able to switch between portrait and landscape for iPad. If you are setting the iPad up on a tripod and you keep having too rotate the mount it gets extremely frustrating!!!
