* Frames Per Second- recording at higher fps makes high speed action shots less blurry and slow motion shots smoother. It also makes huge files that fill more space on your mobile device.

**The scrolling wheel is used to scrub through the video. This means you can play the video forwards and backwards at whatever speed you like. You drag the wheel with your finger to control direction and speed. Nudge it for frame by frame progress, or fling it for high speed play. The scroll wheel is the one of the best things about video analysis apps.

***The progress slider bar shows you where you are within the video, which useful for longer clips. You can drag the head of the progress slider bar to move quickly through the video

****The scroll wheel makes slow motion playback less important. One slow motion setting is enough.
