It’s all about one thing... Advance your skiing with automatic video!
Wakeye is a powerful water ski app designed to automatically capture every moment on the water.
Simply set your speed and your iPhone or iPad Mini ( only with GPS) will start video recording when your boat reaches the set speed.
When you slow down or stop, it will stop recording.
Designed to be used with the Wakeye iPhone and iPad mounts, to create the complete video package for water skiing and wakeboarding (

Wakeye’s goal is to ensure you capture only the skiing or wakeboarding you need or want. Using GPS speed it will know when to start recording and when to stop. You won’t have to worry about someone else pushing the record button anymore.

Easy zoom controls let you bring the skier right into the frame.

Please update!!!! Great when it works

In need of serious update....doesn’t record always and you get a black box that can’t be deleted and causes the app to crash. Works great when it works!

When it works

I love the app, sometimes. I have 2 Apple IPhones I use. My 6S has stopped recording automatically. I cannot get it to change from manual to automatic. My 6 only records in slo-mo. If I want to watch anything in full speed, I have to put it in a video editor app I downloaded specifically to deal with this issue, then figure out how to speed it up to look remotely normal. I also have the Wakeye on my pylon which was $350 but is basically worthless when I can’t record anything.


Good, bad, and ugly

What the app does well — in Auto mode, it does a great job of starting and stopping video recording at the preset speed. This is a great feature especially when taping slalom practice with just one ski buddy.

What it does not do well— image stabilization is not good. Not nearly as good as the native phone video app.

The Ugly — the app seems to take control of the built in video app away from the user. Specifically, optical zoom, frame rate, and image resolution. Especially when paired with iPhone 11 Pro Max, it is a shame to take video settings control away from the native app.

All we need is an app to turn the built in video camera on and off based on GPS speed. No need to get fancy. Just a speed based shutter release please.
