  • BaM Video Delay – The most exceptional video feedback app I have seen on an iOS device. With this app, you can simultaneously record and display delayed video. This means that a PE Teacher can have the app pointed towards any sort of discrete skill and after the skill has been completed the performer has adequate time to return to the screen to see their skill in action. See exactly how I use the app here.
  • Hudl Technique – The app formerly known as Ubersense enables you to use your iPhone, iTouch or iPad camera to record and break down your technique for instant feedback during a practice, race or game. Analyze your students action in super slow motion, compare your performance side-by-side to a pro’s or focus frame by frame. Watch a series of video tutorials here
  • SworkIt – An absolute must download. With SworkIt, students get dynamically created video routines from 5 to 60 minutes. They set the time! The digital trainer then creates the program to fit your schedule. It’s a great app for independent warm-ups and workouts. See exactly how I use the app here
  • Video Tagger – Video Tagger is a unique and powerful video analysis and assessment tool that makes it possible to capture and tag sports performance. Perfect for producing highlight videos of student performance. You can read more about how exactly I use the app here
  • FIT Radio – Music is one of the most powerful tools in the PE Classroom, and with this app you have access to an endless stream of high-energy music designed to motivate. FIT Radio lets you start pumping nonstop and original mixes. Just press play and get moving.
  • Team Shake – A simple app for randomly deciding teams in your classes. A clean but powerful interface enables you to quickly add class lists and sort out random teams in a flash.
  • QR Stopwatch - Essentially all you have to do is hold the QR code in front of the scanner. The app will then automatically generate your name and a new individual stopwatch will be started for the QR Code you scan. If you scan the code again, the timer stops. It’s also possible to resume the same watch again. Once all timers have finished you can generate an email report that contains the rankings.
  • FitnessMeter is without a doubt one of the most game changing tools available on a mobile device, making it possible for you to ditch expensive timing solutions without needing to sacrifice accuracy.
