Shot timer for iPhone and my future iPhone app predictions.

Surefire have released a Shot Timer iPhone application called, you guessed it, “ShotTimer”. It shows elapsed time, split time and allows you to email results.

I am slightly annoyed, I was seriously thinking about writing a shot timer but looks like I was beaten to it.

I predict it will not be long until a full IPSC timer and external ballistic calculator are released for the iPhone. Both make sense for such a cool device.

  • We were just talking about these in my NRA Basic Pistol & Basic Home Defense courses.

    I commented that I bet one could build an app for my iPhone to do that.


    I now have more free time to enjoy life with courtesy of SureFire.

    Still time to do it for the Android(google) phones. I just might give that a try too.

    I tried this with my Beretta CX4 Storm in an indoor range by myself. it doesn’t read shots all that accurately in groups, but if you’re taking your time shooting single shots, it’s a good app.

    SureFire Shot Timer is not on the Apple application store.

    This app does not work as it should. It does not detect shots properly. I purchased Shot Timer pro application for iphone that works perfectly but it is quite expensive – $19 bucks. I guess you have to pay for something that works.
