With the Blast Vision Ball Flight app, you have the power to visualize the results of your baseball, softball, and golf swing from the convenience of your mobile phone. You’ll get the most important features of a professional launch monitor to help you understand the effect of your swing, without the expense. Blast Vision will display your launch angle, exit velocity / ball speed, and estimated ball flight distance, providing you with real-time analysis and voice feedback. Best of all, there’s no charge to try it out for the first two weeks.*
Simply place your phone on a tripod, setup the camera, and hit a few balls into a net in your backyard, batting cage, golf range, or golf club fitting facility. When you’re done with your session, you’ll find each video individually clipped with your stats overlaid on top to show you a visual representation of each hit. You can review your stats, replay your video clips in slow-mo, check your ball flight spray chart to see where you hit the ball, and save your best clips to your camera roll or send to a coach for feedback.
If you’re looking for a fun challenge, take turns competing with one of your friends to see who can hit the ball the farthest, has the best ball placement control, or best combination of stats, averaged across a session.

Ratings and Reviews
Works Amazing with Two Additions
My daughter and I spent a frustrating hour playing with this app in my garage during her last BP session. Inconsistent exit velo and only a 10% capture rate.
The app works precisely as advertised, however you must eliminate camera all vibration and help your phone camera identify the ball though-out flight. Follow in app setup process and use
A) a tripod
B) a clean backdrop with good contrast to the ball
Without this the app is complete trash. Only 4 stars because I do wish that the app integrated the BlastMotion sensor data.
Love it - first try!
My boys hit in cages that has HitTrax and I found this while looking for a similar DYI project. We followed the instructions perfectly (5ft in front : 8ft back) while using a tee (w/ whiffle balls in the front yard). We didn’t setup a tripod yet but it captured every swing. The depth and details are great. This $10 app is an amazing alternative compared to a $30k setup. Even if the exit velocity isn’t completely accurate (didn’t verify) as long as its consistent you can track progress.
The next step will be tracking living pitching. The one issue I see is the ability to get the distance required in a cage. Either way - thank you for building this, so I didn’t have to :)
I’m a fan!
Not very Accurate
First off I love the concept and thought it would be an amazing tool and it kind of is. In terms of exit velocity it is horrendous with exit speeds over 75. I have tried it at varied distances trying to be as precise as possible. Tried it during live bp, front toss, and tee work. I must be coaching the most baseball gifted hitters in the world. Most reading are upper 90s and into the 100s. I don’t think my guys are that gifted. Compared to my radar gun the readings are juiced to say the least.
In terms of launch angle that is very precise and it has been a good tool to use so far. But for our program we are looking to train intent and exit velocity is a big staple to track our training and development.
Again great concept hopefully we can see improvements and consistency to the exit velocity readings.
