TimeMotion 3.0 - Time-Motion analysis the easy way.

TimeMotion takes the hassle out of time-motion studies. For sport science or coaching students, doing a time-motion study can be a real chore. TimeMotion allows you to record the activity profile of any sportsperson live during the event, including analysing an existing video from your photo library. Use the activity categories that ship with the app or choose your own. You can even turn categories on and off as and when you need to. To save the data just take a screenshot (press the Home and Sleep buttons at the same time), or you can share your results via email, SMS or Twitter. TimeMotion 3.0 has been rebuilt from scratch to take advantage of recent under-the-hood changes in Cocoa Touch (such as Automatic Reference Counting), put in place code required for future functionality, and an updated look to match that of iOS7. Oh, and by the way, it's free!

Record now, analyse later.

TimeMotion introduces video analysis to the iPhone. If you have an iOS device with a video camera (iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch) you can record a video from Apple's Camera app and then import that video into TimeMotion for analysis. You start video playback by simply tapping on a category segment. Pause playback by tapping once on the Stop button. Video analysis now allows you to analyse the same performance on multiple occasions, thereby increasing the accuracy of the analysis.

Options, Options, Options.

TimeMotion allows you to use as few as two categories up to a maximum of six. The number you choose will depend on the sport or activity you are tracking. For example, when tracking a team sport player you might use all six default categories that ship with the app because the player will move at all of those speeds throughout a match. However, if you are recording the sprint-to-rest ratio for a player you might just use two categories (Sprint and Rest). You can even use TimeMotion to record 'time in possession' for your team versus the opposition. Just give category one your team name and category six the opposition name. Then turn off categories 2 - 5. You could also do this for selected players. That is, allocate a player to each category and track their individual time on the ball and the number of possessions.

Share the love.

TimeMotion 3.0 allows you to share your results via email, SMS or Twitter. Tapping on the 'Share' button, then 'Email' will create a new email with your results embedded in a nicely formatted table. The table clearly shows the date of analysis, the players name, the analysis time and all of your results. The table will also indicate if you have turned off a category, and in TimeMotion 3.0 the table will display the mean time for each category. The email also shows the sequence of events.
