Wouldn't it be nice to score and analyse your targets just by taking a photo of the target?

Image Processing

We spend hundreds of hours designing the algorithm which detects the target pattern and shot holes automatically.

As a result we created an iOS version, which helps over 7 000 athletes worldwide to analyse their shooting group and improve their performance.

Android port

Now it's time to bring the App to Android! However, porting a native App to another platform is quite difficult, especially when the App extensively uses low level API. Since TargetScan is a niche App the expected revenue won't cover the cost of development. That is why we need your help to make it possible!

The App will have similar functionality to the iOS version, but it will have the 'Android Feel' to integrate well with the platform:

Risks and challenges

TargetScan for iOS uses advanced image processing and not all transformations are available on Android. About 20% of the code related to image processing will need to be written from scratch. Due to memory and CPU constraints this may require us to change the method and end up in lower accuracy.
Also due to high resource usage not all Android devices will be able to run the App. We aim at Samsung Galaxy S2 or newer, having camera autofocus.
