SwimCues presents a list of swimming technique cues and animations for each of the four competitive swim strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly). The app allows a user to select a stroke and then view a biomechanical model demonstrating that stroke with perfect technique. The app provides a list of visual and kinesthetic cues for assessing and perfecting movement. The cues are organized by stroke and by arm, head and leg motion. Cues are synchronized with the stroke animations.
Swiping to the side changes the view: front, side, top, and bottom. There is a play button on the bottom of the screen and single-frame buttons to go forward or backward.
A user selects a stroke and then chooses a swim cue or phase related to arm, head or leg position and movement. Once a stroke and skill are selected, the user is given a specific swim cue that can be used to assess and improve a single aspect of swimming technique. The swim cues allow an individual to adjust his or her stroke using easy-to-follow directions. A swimmer can master a single cue at a time to improve technique and swim faster.
The app also includes a stroke-specific link to the science/research supporting each cue.

Ratings and Reviews
average adult swimmer
This App is very helpful for me. I like be able to stop the swimmer model at any point in any stroke to check body and limb positions. Having that image in my mind helps me while working on my stroke!
SwimCues has given me great insight into the skills my daughter has learned and what she needs to work on. The slow motion feature on each stroke position is such a helpful visual!
Great app for swimmers, coaches or parents
The cues are very specific and simplify instruction. Swiping the screen to the side shows the model swimmer from the front, side, top, and bottom. Very helpful!
