What does the app look like?
Here's a walkthrough of some of Power Pong app's features (v. 1.0.1)
Here's what we are doing: • We navigate from the home screen to the Drills page. • We tap the plus icon in the bottom right-hand corner to create a new drill. This automatically takes us to the new drillís page. • We move the first ball (Ball 1) to the far side of the table to set up a service. • We change the speed/spin of Ball 1. Note the trajectory and ball color are automatically changing as we adjust these values, with the ballís color representing its spin. This is a special feature of Power Pong 5000. There's no need to guess what trajectory will work as it is computed for you automatically. • We tap on the table to deselect Ball 1. • we add a new ball (Ball 2) to this drill by tapping Add Ball. • We move Ball 2 towards the left side of the table near the end line. • We adjust the speed/spin of Ball 2. • We manually adjust the trajectory of Ball 2 by using the trajectory slider. When the trajectory is manually modified, the slider will turn green. • We deselect Ball 2 and set the duration for this drill to 40 seconds. • We toggle the Mirror setting twice to visually demonstrate its effect on the drill. • We toggle the Random setting twice to visually demonstrate its effect on the drill. • We select the ball order icons on the left side of the screen by pressing and holding them. We drag the icons around to demonstrate reordering the balls in the drill. • We rename the drill to ďServe and OpenĒ. • We navigate to the Drill Properties page and set up a few tags for the drill. • We navigate back to the drill and tap the Save icon in the header bar to save the drill. • We navigate back to the Drills page and demonstrate searching for the drill. We can search by either tag or drill name is supported.

for Power Pong 5000
on October 12, 2019
I have had this robot for a little over a month and it has worked excellent. Is able to throw any ball and ball combination I have wanted to practice with. Very easy to use, very easy to take on and off the table if you want switch between using the table for games and then practice. Also it is light, compact and very portable if you want to set it up on different tables. I don't see this typically discussed when choosing a robot. Finally, if choosing between the Amicus prime and the power pong 5000, I would say save the money and buy the power pong. There was a substantial cost difference when I purchased the robot. Robot head is identical. You don't get the tablet that the prime comes with, but get a similar easy to use graphical interface with the app. The hardwired controller is really an advantage. It is easy to program and ALWAYS works, unlike wireless connections. Overall this was an excellent purchase, my game has improved noticeably in only 1 month. Megaspin was excellent to purchase from.
