Axon Athletic Brain Trainer: Written iPad App Review
When it comes to training your bran to be the absolute best that it can possibly be at something like sports, there are really a lot of variables that get tossed to the wind. Or, to phrase it another way, there are a lot of facets that must be considered before you can be the best athlete that you can be. To help you along your way, though, you can always use Axon Athletic Brain Trainer by Axon Sports. The app is a productive and effective way to train your batting brain to be lightning quick and ultra competitive. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, then head on down below the break to see what we have to say about the app!
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind Athletic Brain Trainer goes something like this: Within the sport of baseball, there are a million and two variables that a batter must gain an understanding of before he can begin to bat well. Furthermore, he must know how to respond quickly and effectively to these variables as they change, adjusting his game to match so that he gets results. Now, you can spend years training and playing to obtain this sort of knowledge. But what if you could use an app?
Essentially, Athletic Brain Trainer presents the player with a real, live batting situation. The pitcher throws the ball, and the player must then either identify the pitch or put it in or outside the strike zone. The app judges for accuracy, and as the round continues, the player is given a rating. In this way, the app makes it fairly simple for a player to get a good handle on how keen their eye is, as well as how quick their arm can get to the bat—so to speak, anyway.
Design and Interface
Overall, we just could’t find much to complain about when it comes to Athletic Brain Trainer’s overall design. The interface is simple enough, and we had no problem using the exercises that are included within the application. We had a few minor quibbles with the pricing scheme, however, which we’ll elaborate more on in a second. Overall, just know that this is a sporty looking app with a solid navigational scheme.
Overall, we have very little to complain about within the pricing scheme of the application—though we still managed to find a single gripe. The app gives you Level One training for free, while Levels 2 and 3 require an addition five dollars for both Pitch Identification and Pitch Location. Then again, ten dollars total is not a lot to ask for when Axon has a tremendous potential to improve your game (and is based on hard-fact science.) So at the end of the day, we’ll simply say this: Go ahead and download Axon for the free trial of Level One training. If you like what you see, and feel the app will continue to hone your skills like none other, then we promise the ten additional dollars for all the features will be well worth it. Overall, this one is a game changer, and comes recommended.
Axon Athletic Brain Trainer requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
