Easily measure the speed of cars, boats, skaters, skiers, cyclists, running dogs, model cars, footballs, etc, etc. Uses motion detection, so you only have to hold up the iPhone towards the moving object. Also includes a motion controlled timer and two distance estimation tools.

Speed radar
Uses the camera to detect and analyze motion: Set the distance to the object you want to measure. Hold the iPhone still and let the object pass over the the screen. The speed is automatically displayed. The sensitivity setting let you adjust it for different situations like large or small objects, background motion etc.

Uses motion detection to start and stop a timer. Useful for timing laps of runners, cars, motorcycles, horses etc. Or to track repetitions during workout.

Distance tools
The stadimeter uses the size of a known object, e.g. a person, to calculate the distance.
The clinometer uses the angle of the iPhone to estimate the distance to a point on the ground. Hold the iPhone in front of you, align the point in the camera and get a direct reading of the distance. The distance can then be used in the speed tool.

Neat Idea: Amazing how this app works, takes a little bit to setup but once you do, you will be measuring everything. Compared this to the radar in my police cruiser, amazing how close the speeds were.

Awesomeness! It just absolutely astounds & amazes me the absolutely stunningly innovative & cool ways Apple's portable hardware's made to perform via apps. MUST BUY!

Cool app: A great idea that works well. A friend drove by in his car at about 40 mph and speedClock showed 42.

It is very precise if you get the right distance between the iPhone and the moving object. I highly recommend this app, I love it.
