- The world's best billiards training app -


Rack 'em up for some solo-session practice in a variety of pool games. Become a better player by practicing shot selections over-and-over until you find new ways to run out the rack. It won't correct your stance in real life, but recognizing angles and patterns is the second most important part of pool aside from mechanics.

One of the best ways to practice is to rack up the game you want to practice and press the shuffle button in the quick menu.

Shuffle the balls endlessly to help harden your visualization of the out. Nothing is more impressive than seeing your out immediately after the break.



We include a variety of drills for you to practice ranging from beginner to expert. Each has its own set of rules, like if ball contact is allowed, how many rails to contact, etc.

There are endless drills because you can make your own with ChalkySticks Pad! Create and share diagrams with your friends using Pad, then import them into Trainer and try to complete them. It's the perfect way to handle WWYD situations.

Go to on your desktop computer to create your own diagrams.



Billiards is a beautiful and classic game that's making a comeback. Give it a chance and you'll fall in love. There's no better game for learning and recognizing patterns than billiards.

Quick tip: There's three balls on the table. You shoot at one of the balls (yellow or red), travel three rails, then make contact with the remaining ball. That's one point. You can also travel three rails first and make contact with both balls (yellow and red).

You'll notice balls roll further on this table because it's a heated 10' table; just like in real life.



We haven't released everything yet and we're not even close to being done. Look forward to seeing SNOOKER, STRAIGHT POOL, and BLACKBALL in the near future.

Get ready to TRAVEL by going to famous pool halls and pubs all around the world. Each location will have different drills, prizes, and events for you to explore.

Collect or buy new CUES, GLOVES, and CHALKS. Each will have a different effect on your game. Some cues may give you a longer aim line, some products will help you apply more english, and more.

Cool app but, very glitchy

Racks are never “tight.” Have to break at 10 momentum to get a good spread. Sometimes the pool cue disappears. 10 ball re racks when the 9 falls. It’s 3D but, top view only. It would be nice to have a view down the shaft of the cue. Sometimes the cue and cue ball disappear and you have to restart.

Sometimes balls will stick to one another and go into a “binary star orbit” and just swirl wildly around the table. That’s the only way I can describe it. On kick shots the cue ball always swerves unrealistically after leaving the last rail. One rail: you get an unrealistic swerve, two rails, between the first and second, the ball travels fine, three rails, after leaving the third rail, wild swerve!

Very difficult to aim! It’s way too twitchy. Most of the time you will never get the angle you want ever. Cheating the pocket is almost impossible. If you do get the aim you want, you’ll be dissatisfied because it will change just as you lift your finger!

There is help when you first open the app but, after that you’ll never find it again. No re rack button, can only move the cue ball on the first break. No ball in hand after misses/no rail contact in games...

Practicing pool is about tuning your aiming, stroke mechanics, momentum control, and English adjustments. You can only to the last one half way with any of these apps. You need your cue and a surface 29-1/2 to 33 inches from the floor to practice the first two and a good table with balls to do them all...

Great for pool players

The drills really make this great and I’m really excited I can play billiards on it too. Looking forward to the snooker and whatever comes next

Phenomenal App

This is a great training aid and goes well with their other app “Chalky sticks” that makes connecting with like minded pool players in your area a lot easier
