“I depend on Rowing in Motion to coach myself and others and monitor my training. I have tried out all the main rowing apps on iOS but, for well over a year, RiM has been the standout. It does all the simple stuff like track your distance, rating, speed and heart rate in real time and does it well. And the extras are amazing: the realtime acceleration graphs (backed up by offline analysis) have helped me focus on the parts of my technique that matter. My technique is now better and I race faster.
I have recently started using your online training log screens, which means I don’t have to log training load manually. I even use RiM when I am on my erg to log that effort too.
There are two more features that are worth gold to me: the automated race analysis with customisable splits is simply awesome - I use it after every race. The feature where you can video a rower and overlay their force curves is equally amazing. I have used this with several scullers in my club and they just cannot get over how informative it is.
Finally I want to acknowledge how responsive you were when a bug crept in, the bug was squashed within a few days. Thanks for all your effort on this amazing virtual coach.”

"The app has been fantastic already and has improved our chances of doing well at the world gig champs on the Isles of Scilly in May"
Justin Halliwell, Coach at Truro Gig Club (UK)
"I have only been using the app a couple of weeks and it has already been a big help. My stroke efficiency has gone from averaging 2.2 to averaging 2.8 and a boat a weight category higher than recommended by the manufacturer has shown to be consistently faster for me."
Mark Liddell (Masters Rower, UK)
I'm using Rowing in Motion since April 2013. I'm excited about the App and have become significantly faster since using it."

If you’re a technology-affiliated rowing geek like me, I’m sure you came across Thomas Carter’s blog rowingmusings.wordpress.com. Thomas has previously written about rowing telemetry systems and other gadgets you can use to improve your stroke, so I was particularly happy when he approached me about reviewing Rowing in Motion. “I can certainly see these combination of apps being really
