Baseball Analysis Tool #1: Coach’s Eye App for iPad or iPhone
The Coach’s Eye app has been a very important tool to my everyday baseball preparation. This has been the most user friendly baseball swing app I have seen. I enjoy how you can look at a swing frame by frame. This allows for you to see things that are very difficult to see at full speed.
Personally, in the past I’ve had a problem with keeping my head still throughout my swing. With this app I can draw a circle around my head or lines on the video so I can see exactly how much I am really moving and work on keeping my head still.
During my career as pro player, I’ve had access to some of the best, high tech computer programs that cost thousands of dollars. Coach’s eye does many of the same things as these expensive programs, and it’s only $4.99.
The only downside to this app is you can only view one swing at a time unlike others that will allow two swings for a side by side comparison. I believe the side by side comparison is not as important as being able to watch your own video with the options that Coaches eye offers. Also, I think they will eventually add this feature.
To sum things up: In my opinion Coaches eye is a must have app for any serious baseball player that wants to improve their game by watching video.
Below are some videos showing this app in use. I hope this product review on the Coach’s Eye app is helpful for you. To get the app click here.
