Les Holgate Webitorial - June 2011


This month we take a great leap into the world of apps. If you don’t have a smart phone, you might be wondering exactly what an app is – I did! App is short for ‘application software’ and an app is simply a small computer programme that can be downloaded and used, without the need for a conventional computer, via an iPhone or iPad. It is the advent of the Apple iPad and similar devices that have made our Target Shooter app a useful extension of our downloadable on-line magazine. Yes, we realise that only a small percentage of you will have these devices but it is undoubtedly the way that our means of communicating is changing. Although 14, 000 of you, from over thirty countries worldwide, download and read Target Shooter every month, we realise that sitting in front of a computer screen is not the ideal way to read a magazine – unless of course you have a sneaky read at your work desk! Downloading the magazine onto an iPad is quick and easy and suddenly, you have Target Shooter in an even more convenient format than a paper magazine. Not only that, an iPad will store every back issue if you like – plus all of your other favourite magazines, newspapers or books! Many other magazines are already available as an app, including American Handgunner, AR Guns & Hunting etc. Does this mean that you won’t be able to read Target Shooter for free? No – Target Shooter will remain free, on-line but if you do choose to download the free Target Shooter app., a small charge will be made for each issue of the magazine you download. Small fee? Just 59 pence for UK readers or 99 cents for our American friends. (A third of this fee goes to Apple). Annual subscriptions can also be purchased from within the app itself. If you have a smart phone or iPad, you will be familiar with apps but if not and you want to see what all the fuss is about, visit the iTunes website – it’s free – and have a look at what you might be missing – go to www. apple.com/itunes/downloads/ and click on App Store. Don’t be put off by the ‘tunes’ thing – that’s just the name of the website.
