John Lowe Brings His Coaching Manual to The Apple iPad & iPhone
The most excellent Art of Darts coaching manual by John Lowe has been in publication for a few years now, in fact we have a few signed copies left if you are more of a bookworm than app addict.
However, the 3 times World Champion is not one to rest on his laurels and has spotted an opportunity to bring his tungsten knowledge to a wider, and arguable younger audience in an interactive format on Apple’s platform.
The John Lowe darts coaching app for iPad & iPhone caters for every level of player and features nearly 40 minutes of HD video by the darts legend.
This addition of video to clearly demonstrate John’s advice on matters such grip, stance, the throwing arm and tips to fine-tune your throw is invaluable, and will convey his message in ways just not achievable by the written word.
Apps are where its at in 2012; it is reported that Apple shifted 5 million units just 3 days after the iphone 5′s release. A fiercely loyal following also sees users queuing overnight to be the first to purchase new models, even if the upgrades are fairly modest!
So at a keenly priced £1.99 and the potential opportunity to reach many thousands of users, an app by Old Stone Face would seem to be a smart move. Below is additional information from the publisher.
