The ONLY WAY to actually get BETTER AT HITTING by playing on your phone.

Seam Reading is the ability to recognize a pitch by how it looks.

Each pitch has a different “face” that the spin creates. Knowing what each pitch looks like could be the difference between strike 3, or a home run.

In Seam Reader all the balls and pitches use real life analytics in RPM as well as MPH. From a little league fastball all the way up to a major league heater, the app has it all.

Discover what every pitch looks like in our one of a kind Learn Mode, that features 6 pitches for baseball and 6 for softball.

Practice a variety of pitches and difficulties in the Batting Cage mode. Here speeds vary from your average little leaguer to your major league or Olympic level ace!

Test your Seam Reading skills in Career Mode. With increasing variety of pitches and speeds, the accuracy is as real to life as it gets on a phone.

Download now if you want to get better at “the hardest thing to do in sports” - hitting.

Not Realistic enough

I feel like this isn’t realistic enough like you only have a second to guess in Little League and I feel like it should be 1.7 seconds because I am doing this to get good practice and also maybe it could be like if you say 4 seam fastball and it is 2 seam fastball it should just be like a 50% chance of getting a hit maybe and for Majors level you could like have real pitchers like Jacob DeGrom Verlander etc and it will tell you 50% 4 seam 5% curveball or something like that

VERY buggy

I had this app at one point and it worked just fine. No bugs no glitches but then all of the sudden when I tried opening the app it froze and never opened so I deleted it and reinstalled it and again it started working just fine until today. Now it either kicks me out or (it rarely kicks me out) sometimes it doesn’t let me start the career mode and when it does sometimes there a small yellow dot on the softball that really stands out and it eventually crashes the game. :( One other thing… its saying I have 0 high school hits. It’s showing my little league, college, professional and Olympic hits just not my high school hits. Anyways that’s all I have to say. Please please please get it fixed bc I don’t want this app to be a waist of time and money

Spins of Pitches

2 Seam FB, 4 Seam FB, and Slider have the correct spins, but the curveball spin isn’t right. It’s not suppose to spin like a bullet, the slider is. Curveballs are 2-8, 1-7, 12-6 spin, sometimes 1-8 or 2-7. Also Changeups don’t spin like a FB unless you throw a Split Change or something close to that. It’s either a Split Change, Circle Change, 3-finger Change, or Vulcan Change. Split and Vulcan are the closest ones to a FB spin. I know it’s nitpicking, but it’d be a way better app if these changes were implemented.

Developer Response ,

From that a data we have seen and collected many pitchers throw 2 seam and 4 seam changeups (with slower rpms, just like in the app) and curveballs that create a large circle on the face. the point of the app is to get players to recognize different spins they will see in real life because there will be differences in every pitchers pitches.
