iphone video app vidometer 3.2

Our Vidometer app has reached version 3.2 in just a little over 2 years. This video recording app can record all your riding data like GPS, speed, altitude, G force and more, overlaying all this info over street and satellite maps. During this time we have made considerable improvements like theme map overlays and social sharing on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.  Now we’ve made it even better in version 3.2.

High Framerate Recording
Now with version 3.2 we are excited to offer high framerate recordings for iOS compatible devices! That’s right, you can now record at 60, 120 or even 240fps for super smooth slow mo! Highframe rate recording is supported all the way back to the iPhone 4s. The app figures out automatically the highest recordable framerate available based on what hardware it detects.

Touch to Focus and Set Exposure
Vidometer 3.2 also gives you touch control over focus and exposure. Manually expose and focus exactly where you want.

Auto Video Stabilization
As with our previous update Vidometer helps you avoid jerky video by including built in auto video stabilization for smoother action videos.

Built In Power Save Mode
Save on precious battery life with our smart power save mode. Less trips to the charger is always a good thing.

Of course Vidometer includes useful features like these as well:

-Supports Bluetooth Audio; Listen to your music library while you record
-Use the app as a Dashcam while driving
-Use the app in Aviation applications

So what are you waiting for? If you can run iOS8 you can use the latest and greatest version of Vidometer.

Hitcase and Vidometer Is The Perfect Summer Video Combo


Summertime is sunny beach time!

Adventurer and Hitcase fan Tyler Streetman takes his Hitcase and furry friend out for some summer fun. Where was this shot? Which beach is it? That’s what our iPhone GPS app Vidometer is for! Check out the mapping and location data on the bottom of the screen to find out. (Go full screen as Youtube chops off the bottom of embedded videos). Now everyone can see where your video was shot. With multiple zoom levels for maps, Vidometer is da bomb for showing location, speed, elevation, g-force and more.

The waterproof Hitcase Pro for iPhone 5S and Vidometer is the perfect summer video combo.

Check out Tyler’s Facebook page and follow him on Instagram and Twitter under @stratacous to see more Hitcase photos and footage.

Transworld Wakeboarding Mag Has A Hitcase Obsession, Shouldn’t You?

Hitcase Pro 5.

Thanks for the shout out from Transworld Wakeboarding magazine for naming Hitcase Pro their Digital Obsession of the month. Here’s what they have to say.

“This is no ordinary iPhone case. It’s function combines the free Vidometer app by Hitcase and your phone’s internal sensors and embeds and displays your altitude, speed, G-force and more on your videos in real time. The case itself is shockproof, waterproof, includes a wide-angle lens option and is compatible with GoPro® mounts. It’s really quite impressive.”

Hitcase with Vidometer app - turn your iPhone 4S into an action camera


noun, pronounced /vid-ah-m-i-ter


1) A free iPhone app that shows multiple instrument overlays for the action sports videographer, turning the iPhone into an action camera.

2) Combines the readings of a speedometer, odometer, accelerometer, inclinometer, altimeter and GPS data from your iPhone and overlays them over your own sports videos.

3) Show your speed, altitude, orientation, acceleration, and more right on your videos.

Works best in conjunction with Hitcase, the premium quality ruggedized waterproof case good to a depth of 30 feet.

Have you heard about our great new iPhone app that lets you record action camera data right over your videos?

That’s right, show your speed, altitude, angle of turn and acceleration on top of your videos just like a pro ESPN video, for free!

Why Vidometer?

Before we developed the Hitcase we were already shooting action videos. When the time came to create an outdoor worthy case for the iPhone we had a total video solution in mind. We wanted Hitcase to be something more than just a case. Hitcase with Vidometer is a hardware and software combo that works together to turn your iPhone into an action camera.

We created Vidometer with Hitcase Pro to help improve our snowboarding training times and see where we screwed up. Plus it was great to show the videos on a large screen at event after parties to compare runs and tease your friends.

How It Works

Using the great built in sensors of the iPhone, Vidometer uses the iPhone’s following sensors:

  • Axis accelerometer (get magnitude and direction of forces applied to the iphone)
  • Gyroscope (accurately detect orientation in space)
  • GPS chip (get speed and altitude)

The overlay is rendered over the video in post processing. Vidometer’s post processing time is the fastest among all of the apps in this category. To watch the video with overlay requires no post processing – only when you want to share or download the video from the app.

– Listen to music while recording! Simply go to the app settings and set Audio = OFF. This will mean your recorded clips will have no audio, but now you can listen to your favourite tunes while recording.
– Audio for playback on Windows computers is improved. We are using a different audio codec now to fix some audio issues in recorded videos.
