    Available on the iTunes App Store, Vernier Video Physics for iOS brings physics video analysis to the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Video Physics is ideal for physics students and teachers allowing them to perform on-the-go analysis of interesting motions (see student-created video below).

    Additional features include the ability to:
    - Capture a new video using the built-in camera, choose a video from your photo library, or use one of our sample videos.
