I just wanted to jot down a quick note about this app because its about to transform the way I analyze my golf swing. Until now, I was using V1 Golf, an awesome app for iOS, and I’ve also been using SwingReader. Both are great for being able to add plane lines, check angles and control slow motion video of your swing …. at 30 FPS.
30 is great and all I needed, until I found SloPro. With the iPhone 4S, it captures true 60 FPS video and the playback is like butter. With this app, I’m able to see things about my swing that I haven’t seen before. Doubling the frame count really does matter! And if I want to, I can crank up the Slo Mo, to 500FPS or even 1000 FPS, which a few optical tricks of course. But even at 60 FPS, I’ll be able to look at my swing, especially key areas such as transition, with a new lens. Unfortunately, the hardware on the iPad just isnt there yet to truly harness this app, but it still works just with a little more trickery.

I'm the Vice President of Digital Innovation and Mobile, which is probably the coolest job title out there. You can learn more about my work in emerging technology on the About or Work Pages.
As for this site, it's a place where I can jot ideas down and share some of the stuff I'm working on. The views are my own and some of them might not make much sense, but hey, that's part of the process. I'm also working toward being a single digit handicap golfer, so I post a lot about my golf game.
