BC Calculator for Android?

I have found a bunch of apps for iPhone, but I want one to calculate the BC in the field. The only ones I can find for the Android simply give you adjustments based on data you enter, including the BC. I don't want to have to learn Android Development just to code a calculator. I find it hard to believe that there isn't one out there where I can find it.

Well, my son didnt know of one, but he will look. I hope we find one as this could really be useful. I have come to believe that every rifle to a certain degree, implies some factors that affect the final BC of a bullet. An app to fine tune the actual BC of your personal rifle/bullet could really speed up the time saking task of finding actual field drops.

Re: BC Calculator for Android?

This is the article and formulas I was going on. The formulas were on a few other sites that I looked into. Those are the main things I was looking to calculate.

Edit forgot to put the link to the formulas
