Do you ever idly watch joggers, skiers, boaters, maybe even a race horse zoom by and wonder exactly how fast they are moving? Thanks to iPhone, speedClock can now figure out pretty closely the speed at which people and objects are passing you by. This ingenious app uses motion detection, so you only have to hold up the iPhone towards the moving object. For added convenience and accuracy, speedClock also includes a motion controlled timer and a distance estimation tool. After all, the more information you are armed with, the better off you are! speedClock acts like radar in detecting speed, but all for good purposes!

How does it work? Well when you use the iPhone’s camera, you are able to measure distances and then use that same information to calibrate or set the app's speedometer feature. The camera is then used to gauge the speed of the object on which it is focused. Some of the awesome features of speedClock are as follows:

- Speedometer
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.

- Timer
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 tool
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.

speedClock amazingly uses all the tools your iPhone has to offer to turn it into a very helpful utility app. It is not perfectly accurate yet, but well on it's way to getting there. This is also one of the more unique and innovative apps to hit the App Store.

COOL CONCLUSION: "speedClock is a useful app when you need to check the speed of yourself, or an object for exercise, racing or simple curiousity."
