Splits is now easier to use. The shot recognition procedure has been improved. There is less need to adjust your phone’s recording capability. But, when there is a need to adjust, due to environmental conditions, adjusting Splits is even easier now. Splits now includes a graphical image of your shot string.
Splits is Android 6.0 compliant. After installing the app, Splits will ask permission to save the metrics files to your local storage. Splits will also ask permission to use the audio recorder.
Splits is almost as good as the dedicated shot timers costing $100 or more. And, Splits is free! You can spend the money on ammo or other accessories instead.
Splits records your shot sequences on your device’s storage so you can see your improvements. Splits provides an expandable list of Stages and Drills so you can categorize your shot strings.
Splits 2.15 introduces charting to visual display your progress for each drill. Splits 2.25 includes a graphical presentation of your shot string for both adjusting your phone’s sensitivity and analyzing your improvement over time.
Splits includes the capability to adjust your phones sensitivity for the shot string just fired. You won’t lose a string of fire because the sensitivity was too high or too low. That is correct. You will not waste a shot string to adjust the phone’s sensitivity.
If you are shooting by yourself, splits includes a timer delay so you can “Make Ready”. The timer delay can be set to zero so the beep sounds at the press of the start button.
The metrics that Splits retains by Drill include: Total reps of the drill, total shots in the drill, average shots per drill, average elapsed seconds per drill, average first shot, average mag change, average split time between shots (excludes first shot and mag changes), average shot or split time, accuracy and the ratio of hits to misses. The metrics can be filtered by date range and the details of each rep can be displayed. With version 2.25, you can also see the graphical presentation of each shot string (recorded with version 2.25 and going forward).
There is more to Splits than that described above. Splits is free to download and use. For a small fee, you can remove the advertisements.
The Splits screen layout and coloring works well in the sunlight at outdoor ranges.
