adidas Launches World's First Football Tracking Mobile App
adidas today unveiled Snapshot, the world's first football tracking app on a smartphone. The cutting edge software tracks, records and analyses football shots and allows users to share their results with the world.
Fans that download the app will be able to film their kicks with friends, with the innovative technology calculating the speed, angle and flight time of every shot. Every kick can be analysed, giving fans important information on their game and helping them to improve.
Players can keep record of all kicks in a Library section, track their best achievements and score history or compare their shots with the world's best players led by Gareth Bale.
Features of the app include real time and super slow-motion video playback and visual effects. The app allows photos and videos of shots to be uploaded to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter and then players can challenge their friends for the highest score and achievements.
Bob Kirk, Senior Development Engineer, adidas innovation team said; "We are very excited by the launch of Snapshot, a cutting edge smartphone app which will help fans with the analysis and improvement of their own game. Some of our leading players have already enjoyed using the app and it keeps adidas at the forefront of innovation and technology in football."
The app is available in 18 languages and downloadable on the iPhone and iPod touch from The App Store.
