1. Angles & Targeting

Plan & visualize a shot from the start of your approach to your target, helping you become more accurate and consistent.⁠ Add overlays, such as entry angle, focal point, distance markers, and save favorite shots.

Video mode can apply all the above to previously recorded videos, or use camera more when practicing, with up to 30sec delay, for continuous action replay of every shot.

---

2. Axis Tilt & Rotation

Take a photo or video of your bowling ball with a PAP (Positive Axis Point) marker and position it in the guide for your approximate axis tilt and rotation. Great for working on control & consistency.⁠

---

3. Bowling Ball Speed & RPM

In simple mode use the start/stop button to calculate bowling ball speed in real time. Advanced mode can load in a video for more accuracy, and rev-rate calculation.⁠

---

4. Bowling Observation Trainer

When we let go of the ball, many of us immediately look up to see the end result at the pins. We don't see the journey the bowling ball takes to, and through, the pins, so don’t see differences between pocket hits that do and don’t carry. ⁠

Practice ANYWHERE with the Observation Trainer and learn to focus on four key points of every shot that give you the info you need to make better decisions and start striking more.

---

5. Pattern Library

Instant access to details & diagrams of hundreds of bowling lane oil patterns, or enter your own custom patterns. Load any pattern into Angles & Targeting to plot your shot directly over it and plan how you'll attack the lanes.

---

6. Bowling Ball Arsenal

Searchable library of over 1,500 bowling balls and a way to manage your own arsenal. Organise bowling balls into separate bags and keep track of information such as surface, layout, important dates and more. When looking for something new, use the Bowling Ball Library to find exactly what you want, with filters for brand, cover & core types, RG, Diff and more.

---

7. Notes

Keep track of information about your bowling and equipment. Create general notes, or add notes from within most of the other tools, such as for oil patterns, your bowling balls, Speed & RPM readings, Observation Trainer scores and more.

---

8. Score Calculator

Whether earning how scoring works, teaching youth bowlers how to score, or just giving your brain a rest at a Triple-X fun night, there's lots of reasons the Score Calculator can come in handy!

---

9. Spare Names

Just for fun, tap the pins to see nicknames of common bowling spares you probably don’t want to be leaving!

Helped me with adjustments

I have been terrible when it comes to lane adjustments for as long as I have known. I have a 174 average. I know I can get to 200+ This app keeps me in line. I installed it yesterday and used it that night during league. I had a very consistent series. 211,202,202. Compared to my usual 200, 160, 160. Or worse. I always over analyzed my game. I ended up tossing fundamentals out the window. With this app I learned how to observe my shot, and change my ball path before transition started effecting me. All the preparing was done before I got up to the approach. Confidently knowing my next move, and executing it precisely with positive results! Super happy I found this. Thank you!

Decent App! Maybe add a few items…..

This is a decent app which great potential! App can provide a very “basic” idea of how to initially line up and play a pattern Good settings options to be able to input some specifics such as drift, ankle to ball distance, arrow to pin targeting line, etc.
I would like to suggest the ability to add more info into Angles and Targeting. Since we can add things like Bowling Ball Arsenal, find our Axis and Tilt, Rev Rate and Speed…. It would be GREAT if we can implement those numbers into Angles and Targeting!
Example… choose Kegal Stonehenge pattern. Be able to input the Ball, Rev Rate, Speed, Axis and Tilt along with the other setting already being applied… then see how we can line up on this pattern with all the in. This would be HUGE! It would still just a starting point BUT would give a better suggestion than what it currently does now.
Again.. decent app which I use from time to time… BUT would use more often I could use the additional stuff I suggested.

Developer Response ,

I get asked that a lot. As much as I'd love to be able to make it do that, the Angles & Targeting tool is mainly for helping you plan how you want to play the lane and visualize a shot.

It can't predict what a shot is going to do because there are just too many factors. Aside from the ball and the oil pattern, there's also how that ball is drilled, it's surface, ball speed, rev rate, axis tilt, axis rotation, lane surface, lane topography, and other factors that affect the shot.

I could possibly make it increase or decrease hook if you were changing from one ball to another, but again I'd have no way of knowing how much to do that by because it would be specific to all those other factors.

Again, I'd definitely love to be able to do something along these lines, and maybe if I do some serious physics homework I might be able to do something, but I'm just not sure it would end up being particularly accurate or useful. :(

Feel free to get in touch via support@tenpintoolkit.com to discuss further! Given the low rating you’ve given I’d love the opportunity to talk to you about any other improvements that you feel would make the app worthy of a higher rating.

Bowling IQ

This app is one of a kind. In our bowling world we don’t have many tools at our disposal like other sports. With this we can train our eyes and brains while also see instant data for speed and RPM. Being able to look up oil patters, which is constantly growing is an added bonus. Going to a tournament with an unknown pattern ahead. Download now so you’ll never be left in the gutter again.
