It’s a pro gun app. Fine for adults, ok for teens who want to goof around, but yes, promotes gun use, and can promote gun violence if teens are not careful. It does not “teach” anything about guns except that there are a whole bunch of gun types. Seems like the app promotes a bit of propaganda with the whole: watch this video to gain special coins, and do this to get your Declaration of Independence. I discourage my 16yr old from using it because he’s already just enjoying “killing” his friends with real gun sounds. I’m a big supporter of “pew” “pew”! :-)

Is It Any Good?

For when pointing a finger isn't enough, iGun Pro can transform the iPhone into 13 different real-life semi and fully automatic weapons. For the best effect point the phone and flick wrist to fire. Vibration, smoke curling from the barrel, and the sound of empty shells tinkling to the ground add an extra shot of realism. The gunfire could be more realistic for the particular weapon, and we did not experience the promised recoil, but the app's good enough that we jumped at an accidental round.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
