“The V1 Golf app was developed with the consumer in mind but also with the intent of adding a mobile component and more marketing value for our V1 Pro clients” said Christopher Hart, President of Interactive Frontiers.
Plymouth, MI (PRWEB) October 6, 2010
Interactive Frontiers announced the launch of the highly anticipated version of its V1 Golf app for Android phones. The release comes on the heels of the 2010 Ryder Cup and continues the momentum of the app’s successful launch of its iPhone version this past January. The V1 Golf app crystallizes the strategic and marketing direction the company believes the future of sports instruction is heading.
Interactive Frontiers, better known as V1, is the developer of V1 Pro, the #1 video analysis software in sports with the golf industry garnering the majority of their market share. Soon after the launch of its V1 Golf iPhone app, the app was quickly resonating with golfers worldwide with app sales ranking in the top 30 in over 40 countries making it the leading sports video analysis app in the world. With the launch of its Android version of the app, V1 is well-positioned to extend its global leadership in the online and mobile technology market.
The V1 Golf app allows consumers to capture and analyze their golf swing right on their smart phone. The app's friendly user-interface and icon buttons let users get started quickly the moment they download it. Utilizing the built-in video camera on their Android phone, users can easily record and playback their swing and use one of the several drawing tools to analyze it, in both vertical and landscape views. The app also allows split-screen comparison and features a model library of top tour players to compare your swing.
“Video analysis used to be something you could only experience when visiting a teaching professional,” said Christopher Hart, President of Interactive Frontiers. “The V1 Golf app now gives golfers the ability to capture and improve their swing in a fun, yet practical way. They can either analyze their swing on their own or send it to a teaching professional using our V1 Pro software at their facility for a remote lesson.” The V1 Golf app includes video storage as well a free personal V1 locker giving users the ability to upload and access their mobile recorded content online. A library of game improvement video drills from PGA professionals rounds out a bevy of useful features and functions golfers will utilize and appreciate in V1 Golf.
While on the surface it appears that the consumer driven V1 Golf app competes with their instructor client-base using V1 Pro software at their training facilities, the app actually gives them a digital vehicle to make more lesson revenue. “The V1 Golf app was developed with the consumer in mind but also with the intent of adding a mobile component and more marketing value for our V1 Pro clients,” said Christopher Hart, President of Interactive Frontiers. “We will soon offer an affiliate program to our V1 Pro clients tailoring the app to include their branding and video content when downloaded by their students. This creates another marketing avenue and revenue stream for coaches with no additional expense.”
In addition to iPhone and Android devices, the $9.99 V1 Golf app is also available for iPad and iPod Touch (4th generation) products with new versions and future releases slated for upcoming Blackberry, Windows and Palm devices. In 2011, V1 will upgrade and convert the V1 Golf app to a more robust V1 Sports app, designed to appeal to consumers and coaches of all sports.
