"Shoot" for Android phone's

Anyone use the Bryan Litz inspired, program "Shoot". It can be downloaded to Android phones?

Have you had good results with this program?

I am looking at getting a HTC phone and downloading this program. What phone to get?

Re: "Shoot" for Android phone's

I and my son both have it on Motorola Droid X phones. I have done several field comparisons out to 1000yards with it and comparing it to my tried and true Exbal programs. My first impression is it looks great, but I need to do more field tesing to build confidence.

Topshot,

The program is called Shooter. I provided the solver for that program, and assisted with some of the advanced features like spin drift and coriolis. It uses a point mass solver and matches JBM nearly perfectly. In other words, if you want to know what trajectory it will output, you can run JBM to see. Of course the interface it totally different. You can bring weather in from GPS, or blue-tooth link with a kestrel. The rifle and ammo libraries are very convenient and can be backed up online.

Of course I recommend this program, but if you have any specific questions about how it works I'll be happy to answer them.

Take care,
-Bryan

BTW, I've only had two droid phones, the HTC and the DroidX. For running the Shooter program, the only difference is screen size in favor of the X, however the HTC is plenty adequate.

Re: "Shoot" for Android phone's

Bryan, I noticed in an earlier thread on "shooter" you had shown a screen shot of the solution page. The windage correction was indicated with a large arrow. My version only shows the windage correction with either a + or - in front of it. Is there a way to change my setting to get the arrow? Or was that an earlier program or something?

Thanks
Jeff

Jeff,

If it's possible to change that, it would be in the main page of options.

I'll email sean (the developer) and ask him if the arrows are still an option.

Thanks Bryan, I looked and found where I could change from clock to degree for windage but havent found the arrow option.

Its no big deal but if I could it seems easier for me than remembering + = right - = left.

Re: "Shoot" for Android phone's

I have the program loaded on me HTC Hero and it works really well. I have found that when loaded with accurate information that the tables are accurate and consistent. Heck, for ten dollars you can't go wrong. Probably on of the best/cost effective investments that I have made thus far for long range shooting. Bryan is right. It matches my JBM drop charts identically for my 300 win Mag.
