This is not an advertisement, but more of a look to get some ideas from the ski instructing community. I've been developing an app for the last few months as I wanted something that was portable (put on my tablet or mobile) that I could use to record students and then whilst on the chairlift analyse what they are doing with them. Also to have the ability to share that with them via email or bluetooth so they could take it away and work on certain points.
So I got some help and after some long nights, QuikCoach was born. I've had lots of feedback from the other ski instructors in New Zealand via the NZSIA. But what i'm looking for is what does everyone else in the community need and want. Hopefully with a bit of work I get something out there for everyone that is useful. I have a very cheap full version and I also have a free Lite version. I love instructing and making a useful product for other instructors is really enjoyable.
A quick run down about QuikCoach, but full details can be found at http://www.twicely.com/quikcoachand also https://market.android.com/details?id=com.twicely.quikcoachapp
QuikCoach is a mobile sports video analyses application for tablets and mobiles. QuikCoach gives coaches and instructors the ability to quickly record and analyse their students performance. This not only gives them a quick and easy way of analysing video, but also gives the student important visual feedback on what they are doing wrong or more importantly doing right. QuikCoach has been developed with the help of coaches and instructors from many areas of the sports industry.
The great thing about QuikCoach for skiing, is that it can be put into your coat pocket or ruck sack and pulled out whenever you need it. Imagine you've just filmed a student skiing, once you get on the chair lift you can start the video up again and analyse it with them.
