Coriolis effect I believe is going to depend on what your latitude and azimuth bearing are as to how much it will make you e off your point of aim.
I use the shooter app and don't see where to turn the spin drift on. Maybe it's my platform. I use it on my iPhone. Any ideas??

I didn't think the iPod and iPhone were different. On the iPod the spin drift is toward bottom of page where you input your data for shooting conditions.

Also I think you have to have bullet lengths etc input as well. I have as much data as possible in there so the system has the best chance of giving the most accurate solution.

Spin drift will not show up as an option unless you input the bullet length in when you shoose your bullet.
