Description

The iTarget Pro app is designed to work with the iTarget firearm training system available from our website. Be sure to check out the instructional video on our website. The app allows you to use your phone to monitor a paper target for hits from the iTarget laser bullet. The iTarget system allows you to safely practice dry-fire training while perfecting the fundamentals of firearm shooting and marksmanship. The iTarget Pro app makes dry-fire training more fun by keeping score and displaying your shot placement while you are shooting. It also allows you to save your final results to your camera roll for sharing with your friends or friendly competition. Dry fire practice is used by the FBI, the US military, police departments and competitive shooters. Dry-fire practice is recommend by most firearm instructors and is used extensively by professional marksman because it allows you to get more practice time in without the expense of range time. To use the app, select the game mode you wish to play. At this time, only Bullseye is available. Next, you need to agree to the safety precautions. Please read and follow these precautions for your safety and those around you. Adjust the sled so that the image of the target fills the screen of the phone. Better results may be achieved by moving the target further away and using the zoom. Do not allow the camera to see off the edge of the target. Use two fingers to scale the red scoring overlay and drag it over the image of the target. If your scoring is off, this is where the adjustment is made. Go to settings to adjust the sensitivity. Different lighting conditions require different sensitivity adjustments. Adjust the sensitivity until the target area is black. Test with the laser to see how the app responds. Pressing the green play button will start the practice session. If the app registers false hits, lower the sensitivity and make sure the camera is not seeing off the target. If the app doesn’t register the hits, raise the sensitivity. Changing the lighting conditions in the practice area may require a change in the sensitivity adjustment. When done practicing, you can save the target image by pressing thumbs up and the download button.

    Set up doesn’t seem to get easier with this. Have to constantly fiddle with the adjustments and it still never sets up right on my iPhone X. The target is always a little skewed as I have to angle my phone to get close to a proper picture of the target. And I’ve watched the video and spent time trying to adjust everything. I’ve used in varying degrees of light with different settings and it constantly just starts showing rounds impacting on the target without me “shooting!” The sound works intermittently and I’ve deleted and reloaded the app to see if that would work to no avail. Not sure why that is. At $80 for the whole setup I’d expect a little better. When it gets close to working properly it’s fun for dryfire training.
  • Garbage app

    Concept is cool and when the app works it is cool. Every time I launch the app and try to use it the screen on my phone has a green tint and the shot counter goes off on its own and I have to delete and reinstall the app to be able to use it. It is very annoying. Fix the app and you would have 3 or 4 stars from me. Still outdated. Last update was more than a year ago.
  • Terrible execution

    The app does not calibrate to the target at all. Good thing I can download G-Sight and still use the target with it
  • Not Bad, Needs Work

    Not a bad app. It works as advertised. The sled platform seems a little flimsy and the target is a little difficult to see unless it’s under a good light. I tried to purchase an additional target (quick draw) but nothing happens... with a few key updates this app could easily be a five star app.
  • Good deal •Beginner or Advanced

    I’m in a condo 20x40 so with a long hallway I can set my target at a tape measured 30 ft / Works perfect after a little setting / 1st thing that helped me tremendously was my led lighting with a dimmer as I could adjust lighting perfect / had it for 2 days and my arms are killing me / SO SO much fun and you learn at the same time / I put 1873 rounds on target /Its helping my finger control 100% /only negative is they should have made the Target double sided with the silhouette and offered it as and option /
  • Needs redesign

    iTarget pro is a very good concept, but needs a redesign and remake. Customer support is great, five stars. Had to return sled (see below), customer support understood my problem and accepted the return. Refund was made to me the same day they received the iTarget pro from me. Impressed!!! Sled - the current sled is made out of weak plastic. An iPhone 8 Plus physically fits in the holder, but it wobbles because the holder is only supported on one side and is too weak to hold the phone firmly. This wobble makes it impossible to adjust the red scoring circle over the target on the phone’s screen accurately. Software - works well, but could be made better. The sensitivity is adjustable and needs a bit of patience and trial and error to set up for the lighting condition; this is an individual issue for each user and can be worked out. The improvement I have in mind concerns the red overlay scoring circle. Currently it is adjusted in size and positioned by using two fingers on the phones screen. Ones the fingers are removed the circle disappears and there is a possibility that it has moved as the fingers were removed. It would be better if the circle remained visible while and after adjusting the size and position. This way the user is assured that the scoring circle is at the correct position. Turn it off when the green “play” symbol is pressed before the rounds are fired. The red scoring target overlay is the main part of the hits recognition and scoring system. Not knowing exactly its location creates a doubt, am I missing the bullseye or the system is not set up accurately.
  • Decent training aid, but needs work

    Bought the setup a couple of months ago and by and large it works pretty well. It registers the hits and you get instant feedback, which is positive. On the negative side, trying to stop false hits is a challenge at best. Often I have to place the target holder in a dark corner of the room. Have a adjusted the sensitivity settings numerous ways with moderate success. Just when I think I have it set, false shots start to register. Finally, there is a feature that allows you to save the target image to your photos. This only works about half of the time. That is a pain because you lose a target and you cannot analyze you shots. That said, the app is free and the expectation should be commensurate.
  • Round hits, please.

    This was given to me as a great Fathers Day gift. With a full understanding of the set-up I had it working is short order and it’s proving to be a solid dry fire tool. My only complaint is: ragged target holes. Real bullets almost always make round holes in paper targets. The only exception to this may be when there are overlapping hits or when a bullet tumbles (which is an entirely different problem). Please consider changing the hole image. Thanks Bill
  • Too sensitive

    I pulled the trigger 10 times, but it recorded almost 60 shots. The app constantly thinks you’re firing even in consistent light.
