    Which of these apps have you found to be the best for taking slow motion video and then analyzing your strokes?

    What's the best free app for Android? =\ Coach's Eye is available on Android but it's not free.

    If you're trying to improve your game with an app, just give up playing now.

    Video analysis of your shots are very useful. In fact last week I made a big improvement to my forehand after video'ing (can't say "filming" anymore) my practice session and looking at my forehand technique frame-by-frame, on my computer at home. I realized a technical flaw and found a way to fix it, and I'm happy with the results now.

    I do the video analysis thing once every few months, but having a mobile app to do this would make it more convenient, since I could do the analysis on the court.

    And no, I won't give up playing now, I've been having fun blasting forehands these past few days (not into the back fence, at last!)

    I'm not trying to find an app that will make me a pro overnight (a get rich quick scheme if you will). Instead, I'm just trying to find a useful video analysis app to break down my strokes in slow motion and find areas that could use improvement. My coach does it at our lessons and I find that I pick up on minor changes much easier when I see what I'm actually doing.

    You can just shoot video of yourself and look without having to buy an app no? I normally take my T3i since it can do a nice 60fps. Problem is that I don't have a wide angle lens so I can't capture the whole court but it's not a biggie.

    That is true =) As long as I can play a video frame-by-frame on my phone that would be good enough for me, but I'm still looking around for a free app (default video player on my Nexus 4 does not do it!).

    When I did video analysis on my computer I just used PotPlayer's frame-by-frame function, and it worked great. Personally I don't need the fancy line drawing and angle measurements. Maybe if I was coaching someone that would be useful, but for self coaching I don't need it.
