This iPhone and iPod Touch app allows any archer to keep track of their most important shooting data, including:
- Round Scores
- Sight Marks
- Personal Bests
Keep track of your Round scores, while you shoot, so that you always have your scoresheet data to hand for later analysis. Choose to shoot Indoor and Outdoor Metric or Imperial rounds, or create your own custom practice or club rounds.
Enter your arrow scores for each end, and iArcher automatically totals your ends, dozens, distance totals and round total, as well as telling you what classification you have achieved, and the score required for the next one (NOTE: Updated to reflect October 2014 classifications). Once the round is complete, iArcher will now calculate the handicap that was achieved too.
iArcher now also lets you score a round for yourself and up to 3 guest archers - ideal for competition shoots. Any guest archer's details are saved for easy selection during future shoots.
You can also add notes to each round you shoot, allowing you to record event information, weather conditions, arrows used, bow set-up and any other notes. Rounds can also be flagged as Competition shoots.
You can save each scoresheet for loading and viewing at a later date.
iArcher allows you to enter your existing Personal Bests, and if you shoot a new PB, iArcher will tell you and record it, with a link to the saved scoresheet for easy viewing. Personal Bests are now recorded with the bow type used, so you if you shoot different bow styles, you can track PBs for each bow style separately.
iArcher also allows you to record your Sight Marks, for Metric and Imperial distances, including sight bar (in/out) and sight pin (up/down) positions. Sight Marks are accessible directly from within the score sheet, so that you can change your sight accordingly when changing distance mid-round. iArcher even reminds asks you if you want to view the sight marks when it detects a change in distance. New with V3.0, iArcher now supports multiple groups of Sight Marks, to allow for different bow set-ups or arrows sets etc.
Shot rounds, sight marks and personal bests can also be exported from iArcher via email, in CSV format, for backup and further analysis on your desktop platform. iTunes File Sharing is also enabled, allowing you to copy off all of the important iArcher documents, so that you can restore your scoresheets/personal bests/sight marks onto existing or new devices should you need to. For details of which files to save, see the iArcher website.
iArcher contains most of the recognised Archery GB, World Archery and NFAA target rounds. For a full list of the supported rounds, please see the iArcher website (URL below).

iArcher has been tested with iPhone OS 9.0
NOTE: The minimum iOS version supported is now 7.0, due to restrictions imposed by Apple. You must have iOS 7.0 or higher for this version of the app to work.
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.
- Fix for end-totals not displaying correctly since iOS 9.
- Family Sharing enabled - I don't want to be accused of being downright greedy!
- Prompt added if historic PBs exist that haven't had their bow types updated and so are unknown - please add the bow types so that they can be compared against by iArcher when you shoot the rounds again.
Ratings and Reviews
Needs some maintenance
I started using iArcher about 7 years ago (maybe longer) and is my first go to scoring app. It performs beautifully in competition allowing me to score for everyone on my target. V 3.01 was a very useful update with the extra features, I have been trying to contact Julian to suggest further updates but my mails now bounce back such a shame if it’s gone.
Developer Response ,
Hi SKBJul - Thanks for your review - As it happens, I've been spending the last week updating iArcher to bring it into line with Apple's latest user interface requirements, to support all of the more modern iPhone screen sizes correctly, and iOS 13.3. This is taking a long time, as iArcher has 22 views within it, and I'm having to update the layout of most of them. So I am actively working on it right now when I can. Once updated in this way, I will be in a better position to add functionality to it. Apologies for the email issue - my old domain has been decommissioned, so please send emails to iArcherSupport@joolsmail.co.uk. Stupidly, I cannot update the email address in the app details on the App Store without submitting a new version of the app, so cannot easily broadcast the updated email address. Hope this helps - Jools.
A perfect app for archers and very helpful service
I have used this app for around 3 years now and i have never had a problem with it until recently i upgraded my phone and all my files didn't transfer over so i contacted Jools (the apps creator) and he was very helpful and in one email it was fixed! I recommend this app for every archer out there !
Does what it says on the tin...
Very good app. I've used it for over a year, during which I've recorded my rounds, personal bests and sight-marks. It would benefit from a chart of rounds and classifications, rather than having to repeatedly re-load differing rounds to remind oneself of requirements- distances, numbers of arrows etc. Nevertheless, nicely done...
