Coach’s Eye is a video analysis app aimed at coaches across all sports. The iPhone version has proved immensely popular and this week the app has been updated, is now a universal app, and has a full iPad version.
Here’s some background on what the app offers:
Coach’s Eye provides the most effective way for anyone to coach or learn form and technique. Improve your pitcher’s fastball, straighten your golf swing, easily break down a volleyball serve, improve soccer skills, or even demonstrate weightlifting form. Every coach, parent and athlete needs an edge and Coach’s Eye delivers. Coach’s Eye is the easiest to use video analysis software ever made and it’s packed with amazing capabilities. Neither you nor your athletes will be disappointed.

I’m not a coach, nor could I play one on TV, but I think this app looks very impressive. It’s got strong testimonials from some notable coaches on its App Store page as well. I imagine this should be quite a useful tool for coaches at youth levels and similar.
Do we have any coaches here? If so, have any of you tried this app? What do you think of it?
Here’s an App Store link for Coach’s Eye: it’s priced at $4.99.
