Good, but could be better.

The app is good and has what it absolutely needs. But there are three features that would help it be much better.

First is that it really needs to disable the automatic screen lock when running. Alternately it not pausing when the screen locks would probably be sufficient.

Second is that it would be real nice if the timer didn’t start with the reset time. For example practicing quad loads, reset takes involves unloading and putting everything back on my shell carriers. I need 10-15 seconds for that but I’m always fully reset prior to hitting the go button for a new set and that just wastes practice time. Making it toggleable would be good. But if I have set up to do 5 strings, I only really need three resets.

Third is the random start. It would be best if you could contain the maximum and minimum delay.

Only up-to-date drill app

Searched for a while and was not impressed with the apps I was finding. Some of them had not been updated in at least a year, most of them over two years ago. Unacceptable.

This app does everything I need it to, for my defensive draw dry fire drills. I like the custom options a lot.

Most of all, I like that I can see the developer has recently interacted with their customers. I really appreciate this. Whenever a phone updates and creates bugs developers need to fix, I need to see the developer acknowledge and be transparent about their plan to fix it. Great job.

Now that they have updated the app to increase the reps of the drill, I have increased my previous review to 5 stars. Thank you, Developers, for listening! (Incredibly, many developers pay no attention to reviews!)

I gave it 4 stars for only one reason: You can only get 5 repetitions of the drill before you have to stop, reholster, then reset the app. Please give us the option of an endless loop. You can also take this to the range for effective live ammo practice. Just put your earbuds on under your normal ear protection.

This is fixed in version 3. Thanks for the comments.
