Last week I upgraded phones to a Motorola Droid X and purchased the "Shooter" app. I have been playing with it and really like the fact it is always with me. The Coriolis and spin drift corrections are easy to check and I like the fact that wind is applied in the "Clock" method rather than degrees. I want to further test the accuracy of getting field conditions from the GPS mode, but first impressions are good so far. This program is easy to run and easy for me to understand. I plan to add a bluetooth kestrel
to my pack for occations where I have no cell service to access the GPS field conditions. The swithing from GPS to bluetooth is easy to access as well. Another thing I like is the ability to page up or down on the wind speed, direction and distances by a simple touch of the + or - button. The updated corrections come up fast too.
The only thing I wish it had would be the arrows like Bryan showed in the begining post to indicate up and direction of windage correction. My program makes the elevation number in red with a + in front and the windage in green with a + or - behind it. This could prove to be confusing when you add in spin drift and coriolis. Does anyone know if there is a setting to change this so left and right corrections are easier to understand?
Just wanted to give my first impresion and I will follow up with my finding on accuracy in the field.
