App for That: How to slow down video playback to 1 fps on iPhone, iPad

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, RogerL asks:

I'm still using my Palm Treo and The Core Pocket Media Player to play my swimming, golf swing and Tai Chi training video clips in slow motion. Was hoping to move to the iPhone to use the bigger better screen.Do you know of an iPhone video player that can play back slower than 50%?

To see what we found for Roger, follow along after the break!

VideoPix: Video Frame Capture & Slow Motion Player [$0.99 - App Store link] is an iPhone and iPad app that allows you to slow down video playback to 1 fps.

The easiest way to access video files for VideoPix is through the iPhone or iPad's Photos app, but there's a good chance that Roger does not have his above mentioned videos stored there. Luckily, VideoPix also allows you to import videos with iTunes File Sharing (providing they are in MP4 or MOV format).

Anyone else have any App for That suggestions for Roger? Let him -- and all of us -- know.
