Ratings and Reviews
Elegant and Thorough
I bought and tried most of the tennis stars apps before settling on ProTracker Tennis. Be sure to check out the documentation on the developer's website to really understand how thorough and powerful the App is, and how you can easily customize the level of detail you wish to capture.
Loving the app
Very impressed with this iPad/iPhone app and its "sister" PC app (which I think you'll need if you want a serious reporting/distribution capability).
Yes, the two apps are pricey, but they have been obviously carefully thought through and everyone is amazed at how much quality data (and analysis) I can accumulate in a given match. And since most of the matches I'm covering are doubles, this pretty much eliminates the competition.
Again, this program overcomes most of the complexity of catching all the important elements of a doubles match and attributing appropriate characteristics to teams and individuals as appropriate - again, very well thought out.
Although fairly intuitive, this app will require a little bit of a learning curve, and some practice to keep up with the play and gather accurate data, but it gives you as much help as it can. After a little time practicing on, say, some televised matches, and then a few practice "live" matches to get the flow, you'll be busy but you can collect the data fairly comfortably.
Finally, Eric (the developer) is very responsive and very helpful in answering questions. He will clearly not leave you high and dry if you're having a problem or needing a question answered.
Best return on investment in tennis development !!!
This is the most expensive App I have ever bought, but it is also the most valuable...by far.
If you have a child that is serious about tennis, you are probably spending thousands of dollars on equipment, private lessons, academies, court time, travel, etc. I recommend you seriously consider purchasing this App as it is the best return on a $49 investment in tennis development I have ever made....hands down!!!
ProTracker is the best app I have found for tracking tennis matches for my son who is moving up the USTA Standings in the Eastern Section. It enables HIM to objectively and accurately view his strengths and areas for improvement immediately following matches without me needing to say a word...Priceless !!!
Additionally, it allows us to share detailed information with his coaches to facilitate more effective practices. The reporting capabilities are astounding and have been extremely valuable in his development, coaching, and match planning.
The interface is simple and elegant, allowing you to watch the match while tracking important statistics with ease in real time. I watch most of his matches and this gives me a way to stay constructively engaged in his development in a very healthy way.
I recommend you try using the app while watching a tennis match on TV/Internet at home, just to get a feel for how it works. You will become proficient very quickly (5-15 minutes).
After a very quick setup (names, descriptive info on tournament, first server and side) you have four inputs per point:
1) where the serve lands
2) where the return lands
For the shot that ends the point
3) origin point / stroke type
4) landing spot
The designer/developer had built a very effective interface that makes this process quick. There are many features built in to ease the tracking and even allow you to quickly add points and/or games if you happen to get distracted or take a break.
Just by tracking those four events, you end up with a very rich data set. The App has amazing reporting capabilities enabling you to visually review shot tendencies; serving and returning placement; and winner/error ratios and locations for specific strokes.
Recent version updates have included excellent advances in this already robust reporting capability that allow you to really hone in on key factors like performance on break points when up or down and many more.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
