    Cool idea but I have a very hard time getting the app to consistently recognize the smart targets. Even mid-drill the blue outline will drop and then it will miss shots. Seconds later it will recognize the target again even though I haven't changed anything. Finiky
  • Another incredible product from Mantis Dec 14, 2020

    By Alex Chesterlee
    I’ve been a MantisX user for years, got one of the first Blackbeards this summer and recently participated in the beta for this app. I have used several other laser training apps/subscriptions the last few years in combination with a SIRT pistol, and was often frustrated by technical issues, software limitations, etc. My time using this app has gone flawlessly, it is the best laser training app I have used. Very quick and easy setup, reliable shot detection, drills that make sense, and recording training history are all fantastic features that set Mantis apart. I’m excited to see where they take this from here. Highly recommended for anyone serious about improving their shooting during these times of scarce ammo.

    I've been using the app for just over a day now and so far it is pretty impressive but there are some bugs with my OnePlus 7 Pro running Android 10. It has an issue where hitting the back button to go back from the live practice shooting to the training scenario list will kick me out of the app. There are other times when that happens as well but not as much as previously mentioned. If I can add a request, when reviewing multiple targets, to make it possible to double tap a target to zoom in to see the shot groupings a bit better? Thank you for the great work, My son and I are really enjoying it to the point he wants his own now!
  • Over all Pretty Good, looking forward to updates, some issues Jan 1, 2021

    Used it for several hours with friends and family. Great way to introduce new shooters and teaching technique. Using the printable targets from Maxis website was the way to go. It detects them and does a pretty good job of detecting shot placement. However, detection of the target happens after each shot and sometimes is looses one of them. The slightest change of lighting can loose it. (I.e people walking around many yards away (even away from main lighting source). Manually setting targets “remembers” where it was, but doesn’t score as nice. Shout be a way to lock the targets for while and then force detect as needed (if tripod set up gets bumped). Pro version is insanely expensive and makes not sense as you could buy all the upgrades for cheaper (at least for now). I could not buy any upgrades however when I tried. Not sure if that was an Apple problem or a Manis problem. Great Tool... Not quite there yet, but I think they will get it there.

    Update 1.0022 seems to have fixed the "Legacy camera issue"! Thank you all at Mantisx for continuing to work on this issue until you found a working result instead of just abandoning us! This laser training program is far superior to all the others on the market and I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a laser training product. Thank you for not just taking my money and walking away when there was an issue! Great job folks!
  • Pretty good Dec 30, 2020

    By Jeff Uberstine
    Pretty good however I’d like to see the following features adding. Global laser offset. It shouldn’t reset each time a mode is changed. Automatic offset. First shot could be a calibration shot or add a calibration space off the target to calibrate offset.

    I did have some issues to start but customer service is top notch. They were able to resolve them with some screenshots and input from me. I do really like this app and the company that produces it. Works great, and had helps immensely with trigger pull and muscle memory between trips to the range. Not to mention it's just fun.
  • Newest update split times broken Mar 31, 2021

    By Soup31314
    The newest update the split time always detects first shot as .0 and is the fastest time. Also the ballistic offset doesnt work unless the cross hairs are on center of target. You can’t move the cross hairs to the center of the target you have to adjust the camera

    These guys are legit. Everything they put is rock solid, and Laser Academy is no different. This app is a ton of fun and way better than anything out there!

    Best shooting app so far. Would help to be able to make the target take up more of the screen and have casting built in to go to your TV.

  • Wasted 5 dollars on feature that was worse Feb 20, 2021

    By zac3828227288228
    It’s impossible to know how the feature works before purchasing. I like the break one since I can choose the par time. The problem is I can’t go above 5 second par for practicing safe access. I paid for the holster draw non par one thinking I would have unlimited time to draw. This is not true. Now I don’t know which one would giving me unlimited or at least more than 5 seconds. Could pay for others and waste of money till I find one that works. They’re all basically the same feature with different names. Why not make one you can just customize they way you want? Besides I already spent $85 on the laser.

    Laser Academy hates android. New phone; android 10, will sit forever on the calibration screen and never show anything through the camera while it calibrates. The app then crashes repeatedly when backing to the main menu or checking settings. With other android devices the application reports the camera uses legacy standards not compatible with the app. This product is useless to me currently.
  • Feb 25, 2021

    By TheFirebringer13
    The app looks quite nice but everytime you try to undertake an action it crashes and closes itself. The camera permissions are enabled but still has no image and just has calibrating displayed until it crashes
  • No sound for iPhone users Jan 26, 2021

    Training with both no beep nor visual indicator makes this application useless. I’m not sure if this only works for iPad users. Will update this review if support manages to fix it.

  • Much better Mar 25, 2021

    By Decible84
    Good app worth the cost to upgrade. Please move from entertainment to education category though.

    Best in class app! Kudos to the dev team at Mantis! I love the smart targets, and I love progress/history is tracked, and synchronized to the website. If you're taking wishlist requests I have 2: 1. It would be awesome to see a grouping functionality that tracks size of group from various distances. 2. It would be awesome to have a unified app that combines both the the laser trainer and the MantisX.

    I finally made it work, n its the BEST! It took me a minute to understand the adjustment settings. But once you get it, perfect. This app does exactly what i want it to do, mainly dry fire drills, n draw time. Thanks!

    Great app. Works extremely well. Superior to my buddies iPhone app. Please donate and support the developer. The more I use this app, the more I like it, it works extremely well. Best Android shot timer I've tried.
  • Mar 5, 2021

    By Willms Mei
    The only thing this app is missing, is the ability to set and remember different par times for various shooting drills. Dispite that, this app is still better than a stand alone shot timer!
