What is it about?

Video Radar Gun (VRG) can be used to determine the pitching speed of baseball and softball pitchers. With VRG, obtaining the speed of a pitch is as simple as taking a video with your iPhone, then simply choosing the video frames where the pitch is released by the pitcher and caught by the catcher. Just simply position yourself to the side of the pitcher and catcher so you can clearly see the ball when it is released by the pitcher and caught in the catcher's glove. VRG works from virtually any distance or angle as long as both the pitcher and catcher are in view. It is great for use at the ballpark - even from the seats - when you are wondering how fast the pitchers are throwing.

App Store Description

Video Radar Gun (VRG) can be used to determine the pitching speed of baseball and softball pitchers. With VRG, obtaining the speed of a pitch is as simple as taking a video with your iPhone, then simply choosing the video frames where the pitch is released by the pitcher and caught by the catcher. Just simply position yourself to the side of the pitcher and catcher so you can clearly see the ball when it is released by the pitcher and caught in the catcher's glove. VRG works from virtually any distance or angle as long as both the pitcher and catcher are in view. It is great for use at the ballpark - even from the seats - when you are wondering how fast the pitchers are throwing.

Videos with the calculated speed, pitcher name and pitch type are stored for future reference. VRG supports MPH, KPH and various pitching distances for softball and baseball. Coaches can also draw on the video as an aid when discussing mechanics and form with players.

Video Radar Gun is the only pitch speed app that uses the camera of your iPhone and provides an immediate speed result. No need to switch apps, import videos, or wait for a long processing period. Unlike other apps, VRG does not rely on the accuracy of your fingers and reflexes. Because of this, VRG provides speed calculations that are far more accurate, especially when dealing with pitches traveling at 50+ mph.

You can also enter custom distances which allows you to measure the speed of other short duration activities, like the speed and time it takes to run from home to first base.
