Fully Automatic Sprint Timing App
Photo Finish brings a highly accurate timing system for running and sprinting directly to your Android smartphone.
With Photo Finish you can use multiple phones as measuring points. For example, a sprint out of the blocks with a split time:
The first phone is placed at the starting line and gives the starting signal over the speaker.
The third phone is placed at the finish line and measures the final time with the camera.
The exact chest position of an Athlete is detected via image recognition, using the smartphone camera.
Very high timing accuracy is achieved, outperforming professional light barrier systems.
Automatically connect two or more phones to record times at multiple positions. Timing information is transmitted in realtime between devices.
Place your phones on the track and choose one of the modes: "Lap Times", "Flying Start" or "Out of the Blocks". The app takes care of the rest!
Photo Finish outperforms conventional light barrier systems.

"Awesome! The recognition is the hammer. It's great fun to measure your sprints with it. And compared to a light barrier system, it's super affortable."
"I guess the athletics world doesn't know it yet, but this might actually replace expensive laser systems in the near future. Easier to set up, more accurate and only a fraction of the price. This is what progress looks like."
"Top! Main advantages compared to conventional timing systems: - unbeatable price/performance ratio - portability: hardly any additional equipment required - use also conceivable in schools etc. - use also possible outside sports fields."
If you want to connect several devices in multi-session mode, for example to measure 30m flying sprints or sprints from the starting block, you need Photo Finish Pro.
Only one smartphone needs Photo Finish Pro. The Pro version is available via a monthly subscription or a one-time purchase.
The first 14 days of the Pro version are free! There are no costs if you cancel within the trial period.
You can get the pro version via in-app purchase.
