Don't think "Shooter" is availabl for the I-phone. I have it on a Motorola Droid- X and really like it.

Re: Just got a I-Phone- best....?

i have both "Ballistic: FTE" and "KAC BulletFlight". Hard to say which i like more... depends what your looking for in a program, KAC has some extra features, but it is not quite as ergonomically set up as Ballistic FTE, which is really easy to operate, and has been extremely accurate for me.

I would go with Ballistic FTE, and forget about the Bulletflight, however Bulletflight does have Bryan Litz's G7 values saved into it, if that's important to you.

Let me know if you have any more questions, i'd be glad to help, have been tinkering with these programs for a long time.

I'm using Ballistic and am happy with it. I find it handy for on-the-fly calculations. I have the basic version, which I leave set for English units (yds and moa) for hunting, and the FTE version, which I leave set for metric units (meters and mils) for ballistics work. Usually I have to reboot my I phone to get Ballistic the change between English and metric. Nits include very limited documentation (go online), very limited graph options and limited crosswind profiles. I've checked it against other PC-based software and it agrees.

I haven't tried the others.

On your iPhone, while connected to the Internet, either 3G or wifi, go to the app store. Search ballistic fte, click purchase, accept the prompt. Then click download. This is assuming you have an iTunes account with sufficient balance to pay for the app.
