A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this app is for gun aficionados. It displays realistic-looking firearms, which shoot and reload when you shake the phone. It doesn't set a particularly good example for kids, and is definitely an airport no-no.

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.
