Physics Teacher!'s Review of Vernier Video Physics

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

I am a physics teacher and love to use this app. It does a fantastic job at showing the motion of the object and then graphing the position vs time as well as velocity vs time. The use and manipulation of the app to plot points and set up your scale and origin is fantastic. My request (at to give it 5 stars) would be to allow you option to export the coordinate system with the video. Also, it wouldd be great if it would graph the acceleration vs time.

Indispensable App for Physics Teachers

TRexology's Review of Vernier Video Physics

As a middle school science teacher in an iPad school, this app has been very useful. Capturing data is a snap (use a iPad camera stand) and analyzing it is instantaneous (the App does the math). Students can focus quickly on what the charts "say," rather than spend hours trying to make charts. The only downside (4 stars, not 5) is that the timer cannot be set to 0.00 sec at the start of the action. There are times when it would be helpful to be able to start the timer with the first marking dot.

"Object lost" all the time! Garbage!

Morgynski's Review of Vernier Video Physics

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

Son was suggested to use this app for a physics experiment. It was difficult to use, has very poor documentation of how to use and he basically had to plot all the data in excel to generate the graphs he needed for his experiment. Do not recommend this app!

SFHS ADMINISTRATOR's Review of Vernier Video Physics

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

I tried this app in class with my students today. I demo'd it quickly, then had them video a ball being tossed straight up and look at the graphs. I was amazed at how quickly they caught on and the quality of the graphs they got. It only took them about 10 minutes. Now that I know it's pretty quick, we can analyze many different types of motion. It is limited by the quality of the video, faster things tend to get blurred. There is the ability to zoom in on objects moving slower to get a more accurate positioning of them at various time intervals. I found with slower moving objects, it was better to skip ahead an equal number of frames. I only wish it had the ability to find the slope of the graphs, maybe it does and I didn't find it.

Great classroom tool from Vernier!

This is a great concept from Vernier. I have loved using the LoggerPro video analysis with my class for years. The only issue I have with the software is that targeting and clicking with a second finger is a bit odd since you can't see your targeted object since your finger covers it. It might be nice if a button was added to select the target after you already know you've got it in the crosshairs. 4/5

Missing one thing

This is great, but I would like to see acceleration too. Or a table to go with the graphs so I can get more precise numbers to calculate the acceleration.

For small fingers

Balrog62's Review of Vernier Video Physics

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

The small screen makes plotting points difficult. Also, there appears to be no way to delete a point & try to plot it again. Small fingers & a steady hand are a must. Otherwise, it's a great little tool.

Very hard to control. Program locked into graph mode and I have wasted another hour on enriching apple corp.

I used this app for several months for teaching and now it crashes every time I try to open a video for analysis, the app crashes.
