Track My Roll
By Gerald Petrole
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Mobile shot tracking is here! Track My Roll will give you a very good approximation of your shot's position and speed as it travels down the lane. If you can't get to Kegel or the IRTC, this is the next best thing. You can track YOUR roll when and how YOU want.
Track My Roll harnesses the power of Computer Vision and Object Tracking. It can adjust for small camera movements so there's no need for setting up equipment or for lengthy calibrations.
Track My Roll gives you shot graphs and valuable data including launch angle, break point, entry angle, ball position and speed. Graph multiple shots to a single set. Then export the graphs to your files or share them on your favorite social media sites. It can also store multiple bowler profiles and ball arsenals. Anyone who loves to get immersed in the technical aspects of bowling will want to have Track My Roll in their pocket!
Track My Roll attempts to give you the best shot tracking possible in a highly unpredictable environment. Lighting, camera angle, camera movements and boundary settings can all affect the way the shot is tracked. In order to get the most accurate tracking possible please follow our Best Results guide.
Note: ** The app may have difficulty tracking bowling balls with two highly contrasting colors, black and silver for instance. or a single light color like orange or light blue. Darker colored balls will general produce the best results.
This app does take a bit of trial and error but once i got used to it it is pretty cool. I use it when giving lessons and during practice sessions. I emailed support a couple times for help and Jerry was helpful and replied promptly. Worth it.
Doesn't Work !
I really love the concept and despite the high price I decided to purchase. But after trying it on video after video I have yet to get it to track a single video.
I have yet to get a single working video. I also paid for a tripod stand and tried every position one can think of with my phone to no avail.
