We've got no distribution channel so honestly I must recommend you purchase software currently available.

For a side project like this, time to market is of secondary importance so unfortunately it might take some time before we can offer the software -- but we are determined to offer it, not everyone will an iPhone or a full-featured PDA so I definitely see a market among the low end cell phone users who are also long range shooters.

I found a cool software for Iphone that looks great and has cool features like HUD and supports G7

Ballistic: The Pro Ballistic Trajectory Calculator for the iPhone and iPod Touch

Just want a Iphone now

Thanks magg,
I've added 'Ballistic' to the list.
Seems iPhones are covered now with 2 apps supporting G7.
I'm itching to get started on something for other mobiles (blackberry, windows mobile, etc).

How would the Iphone ballistic programs compare with the Patagonia ballistics?? Same features and reliability?? The Iphone price is way lower but thge hardware is possibly more expensive and delicate.

Re: Quest for g7 ballistics programs (can we please make a list)

Our cell phone software is feature complete and bugs have been ironed out as far as I can see. I had to remove localization support for the time being ( to hurry up some heavy code refactoring ) so just metric for now but it'll be quick to re-implement imperial units, it seems we're in no big hurry as far as distribution channels go... Still looking for interested parties to take care of distribution or to buy the whole IPR off us.

Toyed one day with G7, below is a mrad elevation comparison chart of our "G7" vs. JBM. 190SMK @ 900 m/s, std ICAO conditions, 5 cm sight height, 100m zero. G7 BC 0.270. The bullet goes subsonic already at 1200 meters so a mere 0,1 mrad of error at 1400m isn't too bad at all! Of course the error would be even further out if the bullet started off with more velocity, this is something like a 300WM load ( I get 850 m/s in my 23" 30-06 with N550 ) .

Code:
range 	JRu 	JBM
200 	0,4 	0,4
300 	1,1 	1,1
400 	1,9 	1,9
500 	2,8 	2,8
600 	3,9 	3,9
700 	5,0 	5,0
800 	6,3 	6,3
900 	7,8 	7,8
1000 	9,4 	9,4
1100 	11,4 	11,3
1200 	13,6 	13,6
1300 	16,1 	16,1
1400 	19,1 	19
1500 	22,6 	22,2
I'm not sure of how correct JBM is but as far as I know it's close, and this is just to point out we can fit different types of curves without any changes to our software -- G7 as an example. I still think it's pretty awesome for something that goes with you all times ( normal cell phone ) .

BTW -- Thanks a lot Bryan, now we need to make another name change for our software! ;)
