Hitcase Goes Swimming With GoSwim

iPhone Apps, News.

There are so many ways to use the Hitcase that we are always amazed at what our customers come up with.

The people at GoSwim, swimming’s leading provider of educational video content and official technique video supplier of USA Swimming use the iPhone with Hitcase as a coaching tool for swimmers.

GoSwim’s site hosts thousands of videos to teach swimmers perfect form and view other top swimmers in action. Recently, they developed an iPhone app called Deckshot that allows coaches a simple inexpensive way to record their swimmers in the water then review and share the videos with them.

GoSwim chose the Hitcase as their iPhone camera case of choice because according to them “the BEST case for your iPhone is the Hitcase!” and “Cases that are simply waterproof have too narrow field of vision, which makes it incredibly difficult to film unless you’re IN the water and seeing what you’re filming.

For a regular, daily filming, the Hitcase, has a wide angle lens, which allows consistent filming while just walking down the deck.”

Find out what makes the Hitcase so good at waterproofing on our page describing the ShockSeal.

GoSwim liked the Hitcase so much they had us create a special GoSwim bundle for their site’s members and users of Deckshot.

You can find out more about GoSwim and their Deckshot app here. All the footage in the video above was shot with Deckshot and Hitcase.

Improve Your Pics With These Instagram Apps

iPhone Apps.

We post to Instagram every day. While we’re fans of Instagram, it often lacks extra features we want. These Instagram add on apps helps us achieve the look we want with just a few clicks. Our newest member to our product line, the Hitcase Snap, also helps us achieve the look we want and is the perfect addition to your iPhone to help create eye-catching content at the drop of a hat.

Whitagram

 

Whitagram Whitagram 3.6.1

We use Whitagram when we want to show the original rectangular aspect ratio of a photo. Whitagram fills the background with white or a color of your choice. It’s very useful for when you want to show the full widescreen effect of the iPhone without Instagram cropping the edges. The app allows you to create some basic special effects and add frames and stickers. You can add labels with the upgrade to the paid version. You can also export to Camera+ and then move the images back into the app for final editing later. Think of it as an add on that gives features Instagram should have included.

Instasize

instasize instasize

 

Instasize is another Instagram companion app that we can’t do without. While Instasize can add filters, overlays and text on photos and video, the most useful feature for us and we suspect for most users is the creation of collages. Instasize offers the quickest and easiest way to create a collage for Instagram. All you need to do is pick a pre set frame and add your favorite photos.

PicPlayPost

Pay app PicPlayPost is like Instasize but with the ability to add video to your collages. Basic editing like trimming and filters are available, although higher end features like adding up to 6 videos and extended videos up to 10 minutes are only available if running iOS7. You can even add music from your library to the video collages.
