Speedhero is built for speed shooting - whether it's your soccer shot, tennis smash, volleyball spike or ice hockey shot. Test your speed, challenge your friends, and share your results on Facebook or Speedhero.com. Use it in training, compete against the pros, or just have fun. It's very easy! Just select your distance, place your iPhone and you're ready to start speed shooting.
Test yourself against the pros:
Pro athletes from various sports have been using Speedhero - check their records at Speedhero's web service. Within the Speedhero community you can share your own results, customize your own Player Card, collect your friends' and pros' cards, and compete with the best. SpeedheroTV features pros in action - upload your own videos, and prove your records to the world.
Amazing new technology:
Speedhero uses sophisticated algorithms to detect the impact sounds of your contact with the ball and the ball's impact on a wall. Then, using a sport-specific flight time dynamic formula and the processing power of your iPhone, Speedhero instantly calculates your top speed.
"We believe that the Speedhero app will change the way people compete and train in various sports. For the first time, anyone can afford to have an accurate sport radar in their pocket to measure the speed of their smash, kick or shot. It is a perfect practice tool for teams and individuals or just a fun app with which one can compete with their friends or people around the world" says Timo Salmi, CEO of Entetrainer Ltd, the company behind Speedhero.
Speedhero has been tested against professional radar guns which are both expensive and clunky. For the first time you can have highly accurate sports radar on your iPhone.
