I hate it. Ruined a good program.
I agree.

On my phone, when using the arrow for wind, it seems to be upside down, because the red spot, should be at 12 o clock, but i ats 6 o clock, so I need to turn my phone 180 degrees to get it right. Is yours like this too?

Re: "Shooter" for Android Table Question

I guess I have not gotten this update for the " wind Arrow" Or is it an option I do not have turned on? Many things are optional like the choice of + or - or L or R for windage adjustment. I really like the L or R for this.

No Broz,
If you have automatic updates turned on, your phone should download the latest version.
There is no option to turn this feature off unfortunately.

With this wind feature it is impossible to input a 0 wind reading. The smallest input is 0.5 mph. To get a 0 wind input you need to use the solution page and then scroll down the wind speed.

The only other way to input the exact wind speed is to tap on the Humidity input section then hit the enter key and hope it tabs to the right spot on the next level which is the wind input. Sometimes it does, sometimes it does not.

Topshot, I have not had this update. I do not let updates happen until I know what they are.

But my son is here today and has the update on his. We played with it and don't really care for it either. But the way around it is to skip wind on your field data entry page. Then once you are on the solution page enter the wind speed and direction with the page arrows like you said or place your curser there and type in the data manually.

This is how we do it anyway since the wind often is changing and we prefer to enter it last anyway. So this update will not affect us and the way we have used the program.

Broz,
That is the way that we have decided to use the feature as well.
It also effects the wind angle. So will now just have to live with it.

Another pain is that it only remembers the wind speed and angle from the front input page. In the field when you change the wind speed and angle at the last minute on the solution page, that info is lost if you go back to the main input page. Tthe default wind data then takes its place. This could lead to an error if you are not very careful.

Re: "Shooter" for Android Table Question

yes, I agree. It would be nice if last inputted data, both wind and distance, would stay no matter what page it is entered, if you have that option checked.
