by Jeremy Rupke on May 12, 2013

I am very happy to announce that the iSnipe app is now available :)

Visit the itunes page to purchase for Apple and the Google Play page for Android

How the iSnipe will help you improve your shot

imageShot Counter

The shot counter allows you to input and keep track of the number of shots you have taken per shooting session.

You can keep track of each type of shot, while the grand total of shots is shown at the top of the screen.

  • Keeping track of shots helps keep you motivated to shoot more
  • Individual shot counters allow you to set and achieve goals
  • Your initial goal can be smaller (1000 of each type of shot, or 2500 of each type of shot to reach 10 000 total shots)

Video Training Tips

Each type of shot is explained in detail in the first video detailing the fundamentals of the shot, and how to perform it.

The next three videos explain advanced shooting methods, giving you new ways to shoot the puck.

The longer videos are hosted online, while shorter videos are built into the app.

  • Videos will help remind you of proper form, helping you drastically improve your rate of improvement
  • Advanced shooting tips will give you new game-situation shooting methods to practice, which will help you score more goals

On ice videos

Videos are shot on the ice so you can see how the movements will translate to game situations

All lesson, teaching tips, and movements can and SHOULD be recreated in your off-ice shooting practice

The videos go beyond the basics, teaching you variations of each shot, how to practice them, and when the best time to use them is

16 training videos in total!

 

 

image[3]Training Tools – The Buzzer Beater

Input how many seconds you want to shoot for. The buzzer beater has a 3 second delay before it starts, allowing you to set up your first shot.

See how many shots you can take in a given time, how many times you hit the net, how many targets you hit, etc.

Vary distance, shot type and shot angle to continue to improve your release and accuracy in many different situations

  • Improve shot release speed
  • Record and track your improvements with the notepad (next tab)

Training Tool – Quick Release

Input the amount of pucks you want to shoot, and how many seconds you want between shots. Shot locations are called out instructing you where to shoot.

  • Improve quick release
  • Improve accuracy
  • Improve reaction time (must adjust shot and aim according to location called out)
  • Time is adjusted in .25 second increments allowing you to gradually increase

Track and Share

A notepad area is included to keep track of your goals and achievements. This is handy to have so you can track your improvements in accuracy, quick release, and shot power (if you have a radar gun)

You can also share the amount of shots you have taken easily with Facebook and Twitter.

  • Use the notepad to keep track of goals and achievements

Every time I go to input my shots the application shuts down. Please help I think this will be a great app if I can get it to work.

I am having the programmer look into it. This is not a common problem so it’s hard for him to determine the cause.

Where did you get that iPod skin. I want to get one they’re cool.

Jeremy Rupke July 28, 2013 at 8:30 am

I got it from Gelaskins. I had a hockey one for my iPod but I lost it so in the video I am using my girlfriends

Hey Jeremy I was testing the shot counter and I put more than 40000 shots, how do i reset the counter?

Reply

Jeremy Rupke June 23, 2013 at 12:34 pm

just put a minus sign in front of the amount you want taken off. If you have 40000 slapshots then click the slapshot counter and then put -40000

Dane June 20, 2013 at 7:54 pm

Great app, but a bug to fix in an update:

If my iphone locks it stops playing in the quick release, and buzzer beater as well.
You can turn the auto lock off as a work around, but it sometimes gets bumped while in use.

Jeremy Rupke June 23, 2013 at 12:34 pm

Thanks, should be fixed in the next update

Viktor Engman June 15, 2013 at 3:34 pm

Keep up the good work!

Yes I am working on an Android version. I will send out an email when it is available.

Don June 10, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Hey Jeremy just got the isnipe and not all the videos will play

Reply

Jeremy Rupke June 11, 2013 at 12:03 pm

Some videos are hosted online, so you will need an internet connection to view them. There are two videos out of place as well which will be corrected in the new version (should be updated within the next day or two)

Mark Nelson June 8, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Do you have a reset function for the shot counter. My kids were playing around now I have 10000 shots on all my shots need to reset.

Thanks

Reply

Jeremy Rupke June 10, 2013 at 10:50 pm

To reset you just need to put a minus sign in front of whatever the number is. So if you’re at 10 000 wrist shots if you enter -10000 it will reset back to 0

Matt May 26, 2013 at 7:11 am

What day will the app be out

Reply

Jeremy Rupke May 26, 2013 at 8:45 pm

There is no set date, it should be ready any day. It just has to go through apple’s approval process. It’s been under review for a few weeks now. I’m hoping this week is the week it gets approved

Davis Eichelberger May 24, 2013 at 8:27 am

I am super excited for this app please get it up ASAP I fare tee everyone else can’t wait.

Hi Jeremy,

Tell me about the I-Snipe App!
What’s the cost?

Where’s it available?
iTunes? Your website?

How does it work?
On your phone? What ya put the phone behind the net?

Thanks! P.S. I love your videos!
I just got the EZ Goal & shooting Pad to work on my shooting this summer with a teammate! I’m watching your videos on Snap shots & shooting in close over the goalie when she’s down;, trying to learn & improve my scoring!

Thanks Velvet
