"Best" Smart Phone/Ballistic Apps?

Hi all -

Out of the gate, i *did* a search on this subject and rec'd many hits. However, most were older and phones have changed quite a bit recently.....

I'll be moving to CO soon and getting a SmartPhone w/ requisite data package for work.

I *will not* be using iPhone platform since the work-related Apps are all on the Android platform.

So, which is the "best" Android Smart Phone/Ballistic Application (price within reason please!).

I'll probably be gettting a Kestrel 3500 weather monitor and have a GPS, but it's nice to have some redundancy in electronic devices.....

Thanks!!!!

frank

PS - If this is not the correct place for this post sorry - i couldn't think of a more appropriate Forum.....

    Here is the latest and greatest as far as I am concerned.

    Applied Ballistics Mobile app


    The "Shooter" app is also very good and close to the same and is a little less expensive.

    You might want to take a look at the "Shooter" application for Android. It's the program I use.

    Great advice guys!

    OK, so there are 2 great Apps to choose from - nice to have good alternative choices.

    Which Android phone is "best" to use the Apps with?

    THanks again!

    I use and love Ballistic: FTE, but I think it's only available for the Apple platform. It also costs $20.

    If I were going to start with a new application, I'd likely give the Applied Ballistics app a try.
