The advent of ever-more sophisticated software being at our immediate disposal via smart phones will continue to transform our lives in many ways, some we probably haven't even considered prior to now. The USD$5.99 iSwing iPhone application allows users to record their golf swing on video and replay it frame-by-frame in slow motion and analyze their flaws by drawing lines over their screen to make sure they’re “on-plane.” This swing analysis application represents remarkable value, given that professional swing analysis usually costs USD$60 a visit. Coming soon on Android too.
The creation of mobile software company, Keuminotti, iSwing also creates sequence photos like Golf Digest centerfolds that can be used as a virtual reference, or that you can share with friends via Facebook Connect. The iSwing sells for $5.99 and is offered for the iPhone 2G, 3G & 3GS.

After 8 months of research, development, and beta testing, the iSwing hit the App Store this August. Since it’s debut, the iSwing has already broken into the top 5 most downloaded apps in Japan Sports and stands currently at #1 in Korea Sports. “The success we’ve seen in Asia is translating well to the US where golf can be an expensive pastime. Professional swing analysis can cost an average of $60 per visit. And for the price of a bucket of range balls, one can analyze their swing on a device they already carry in their pocket…”, says Charlie Keum, CEO and Founder of iSwing.
Note that iSwing is also the name of a Toyota Personal Mobility Concept.View gallery - 2 images
