With Snakeinalake Studios' Pitch Speed, you can calculate the speed of any moving object such as a baseball, football, tennis ball, vehicle, etc. All you need is to know a rough estimate of the distance that the object will be traveling.
The results will be shown in Feet per second (fps) and Miles per hour (MPH).
This is a great tool for anyone who wants to find out how fast they throw, or even how fast they run.
All you have to do is press and hold the gauge in the app when the object starts moving, and then release it after it passes the preset distance.
The faster the object, the bigger the distance should be. For example, a baseball going 70 mph should travel a distance of at least 30 feet in order to get an accurate speed estimate.
For a thrown object like a baseball, it is recommended that you throw the object at a hard wall, that way you will know exactly when to let go of the gauge because it will make a loud sound when it collides with the wall. Also, taking the measurement would be easier because you would simply have to measure the distance from the stationary wall to the stationary pitchers location.
The numbers calculated by this application are only estimates, they are not exact calculations of an object's speed and should not be used for anything requiring such accurate measurements.
