by  SwingAcademy     
 

So now that we have a fancy new design, you might be asking
what else is new?

 

Here is a rundown of some of the many feature additions.  Sit back as this may take awhile.

  • Still free!:   Yes, we strive to provide basic technology that everyone on the planet can take advantage of to improve their swing!  Oh…and yes it’s still FREE.  In fact, you can register here with your Facebook account!
  • Sometimes free isn’t enough.  Get your own group:  Over the course of the last couple of years there have been many of you who love our community and analysis tools but want more.  Our premium groups are just what you have been asking for.  Our groups are an awesome solution for golfers or all ages, families, teams of all ages, leagues, academies, brands and more.  Starting at 29.99 a year…these are a can’t miss.  Check out the feature run down here.
  • Facebook Connect:  You can now register and share all your SA activities with your Facebook network. If you are already a member of SA, click on your profile and go to the Facebook icon to connect.  To register for SA using Facebook, click here.
  • Improved Profile:  Our profiles are designed to enhance and optimize learning and communication.  The new profile has new friending features, new private message management, and new video upload and privacy controls.  The new “my page” addition allows coaches, players, fans to customize and personalize their profile to better communicate their resume’s and experience. 
  • Video Copies:   A much requested feature, the video copy allows any member of a private group to copy videos to and from public and private groups.  Ideal if you have video that you want to appear in several different groups. Ideal for instructors who may want to do a Skillcast analysis of someone’s swing!
  • InstaPlay:   Were you tired of waiting for your swing clip to load?So were we. InstaPlay instantly plays your clip while we work our slow motion magic.  
  • SkillCenter Updates:   For many of our beta virtual academies, otherwise known as SkillCenters, you will notice a few changes.  One being, the intention of our redesign was to minimize our branding and put the focus on your brand and SkillCenter.  We think we accomplished that.  Another fantastic feature is our added article and blogging tool.  The article and blogging tool allows you to add value to your community with blogging for the community as a whole.  A private newsletter of sorts.  Even better, articles can be assigned to specific users and private for their eyes only.  This will allow you to offer personalized teaching via text while also including links to drills, workout plans, analysis etc. Learn more about how you can generate new revenues for your business here. 
  • Don’t Forget:
    • SkillCast:   For those of you who haven’t experienced Skillcast, give it a test drive by registering for a 30 day free group trial.  As the pioneer of web based analysis tools we continue to push the bar of what is possible on the web.  Sure apps are great…but 2 billion people have web access around the world.  Skillcast adds the ability to do analysis over a moving swing!  Check out a sample here.
    • Side by Side:   Ever wondered how your sing looks vs. other golfers, pros,etc?  Get a premium group and use SBS to take your game to the next level.
  • Coming Soon:  Like the recent updates? You are going to love some of our fantastic new features and apps coming soon!  Have an Android phone or Tablet?  We love Android!  SA is compatible with most Android-Gingerbread tables(Motorola Xoom, Asus,etc). Now you can film, upload, and view all from your tablet!  Same holds true for phones using Android Honeycomb or Gingerbread.  Have you tried the new Blackberry Playbook?  Let us know how SA works on the Playbook. 

 

These are just some of larger updates among many smaller.  Certainly design and rebranding was a big one as well.  Have questions about any of the new features?  Click the “Ask Us” button to reach out to a representative.
