Pros and cons of Ballistic: Advanced Edition app for iPhone and iPad
Ballistic: Advanced Edition app good for
I am really impressed overall. There does however seem to be some things missing. The biggest for me being the MOA calculator, it would be really nice to have the option for "True MOA" (1.0476" @ 100 yds) or "Shooters MOA" (1" @ 100 yds). This makes a huge difference. Also if in settings for HUD, you select 1/4 clicks, instead of haveing to figure out in your head what 27 click will show on you turret as (6.75 or 6 whole clicks and three, 1/4 clicks). Much faster in field.
Ok. Trust it and you will hit your target. It works almost flawlessly. Great selection of calibers and loads. HUD helps you when shooting up or down (angle compensation). One glitch: when comparing the performance of different loads, the charts are transposed on top of each others and this leads to false energy/drop readings
rigelx- I dont know what your problem (or motive) is but this app has worked perfectly for me and Ive compared it to numerous other ballistic programs, and the updates and fixes are frequent.
I bought this app since I wanted something faster than going to JBM online. I like the app overall, a lot. But, it has a few glaring omissions, notably that its missing the Litz and rimfire projectile models, in addition to target lead for moving targets. I dislike that you cant choose the units in both columns of the output like you can online. I like the output to be both mils and MOA, as I rarely communicate trajectories in inches. I also dislike that you cant set it to round off mils to one decimal, which thankfully IS done in the HUD. Overall, an excellent app. But, I do hope these deficiencies are addressed in the next version.
Overall pretty good, have to use it a little to get used to accessing and saving data, would be nice if it had a feature that would calculate your zero distance based on the point of impact at a known range...like the nightforce program has
Couldnt ask for a better ballistics app for the iPhone!
Ive been waiting a long time for an app that lets me input wind data from multiple points downrange!
This app has the options of choosing a simple user friendly HUD with a pre loaded cartridge; to advanced options including user defined: projectile, drag model, spin drift, and coriolis effect.
This is a ballistics app using JBM calculations with any variable I could think of using.
Some bad moments
Save your money, gentlemen!
This app is unstable. The weather, for example: you never know what U gonna get, Im switching from NOAA to Geonames with very little result, numbers pops by themselves and dont match my GPS or Aeroweather app, which takes report from NOAA too.
Altitude is always different. Cant obtain location or shows wrong numbers. Temperature jumps from -17c to +20c (what?). U close the app and loose all your entries, even when the SAVE is on. Need to re-enter agane.
U choose one amo - it jumps to the other...
I can continue forever...
What a headache!
Save your money, gentlemen, save your money.
Sent from Rigel.
The problem looks to be pretty good BUT unless the developer writes some proper instructions or better yet tutorials (like other ballistic apps have) for first time users the program is essentially useless.
This seems like a good app so far, but, there is no support for Federal ammunition what-so-ever.
I use all sorts, from cheap, to top cost ammo.
Would really like to see support for federal and others for .308Win/.223Rem.
Will rate higher.
Ok just bought this app. Not what I expected totally useless!! -5 stars
Downloaded this morning. Screen is locked on trajectory. No response from any pick point.
The app will not open. It is locked up on the Trajectory screen. I didnt mind paying for the app, but I was expecting it to work.
