    Shooting software like scoring programs, apps, loggers, diaries, balistic calculators

    A friend of mine at the range was telling me there was a nice iPhone app for logging your targets a few months back. At that point I could only find software for the iPhone and not any other phone such as Android (which I have) or Blackberry. I have looked again, and in the short time frame there seems to have been some new entries into the market.
    This has made me wonder what other software (whether it be for the phone or computer) people use. Please post! This is what I have found so far:

    iPhone:
    -ShotPlot http://www.shotplot.ca/ - target logger
    -iSnipe http://isnipe.ca/ - ballistics calculater
    -ClayTracker http://claytracker.com/ - logger/diary and stats for skeet and sporting clays
    -TrapScore - logger for trap
    -RingHunter - http://www.notmann.eu/Welcome.html - Score logger
    -TotalScore - I think it is a logger but I can't find any info on it and I don't have an iPhone to search the AppStore

    Android:
    -Target Calculator http://targetcalculator.blogspot.com/ - target logger where you can take pictures of your target and get group sizes, etc.
    -Plink Log http://plinklog.blogspot.com/ - target logger and shooting diary
    -RangeLog https://www.rangelog.com/ - shooting diary, maintenance log, training, etc
    -Target Trainer - training aid, log your shots on target and it will give you suggestions (i.e. heeling, pushing the trigger, letting grip loose, etc)

    PC:
    -On Target Precision Calculator http://www.ontargetshooting.com/index.html - target logger where you scan in your target to your computer with a scanner and determine group sizes, etc

    This is what I have found so far. I am using Plink Log and really like it for Android. Please share your thoughts and experiences. Also, let's avoid shooting games. There are LOTS of those out there.
    Thanks!

    I've used RingHunter. It's a score tracker. It's not perfect, but it does keep getting better. It's not bad for the money, but it's not a deal either. There was a thread about this on TargetTalk, and I was quite scathing. I have moderated my language, but not my general opinion. Probably better in it's native language (German?)

    I have just seen a post about ISSF Trainer application for iPhone as well, and that seems pretty good: http://www.doublealpha.biz/daa-iphon...er-application
    There is a video on this website showing how it works. This is a target logger/diary.

    Target Scan

    I have created one for iPhone:
    - Target Scan - the App lets you scan you multiple targets and calculate group statistics: Max Spread, Mean Radius, Windage, Elevation

    As of now only ISSF 10m Air Pistol targets are recognised, but I am working on the the version which will support more targets.

    Does any one know if there is a logger suitable for a Windows phone?

    Strelok+

    I've been using Strelok+ (paid) on my Android phone for about 6 months and it is great. I've just added Shooter (paid) but initial thoughts are that I prefer Strelok+. Both on Google Play.

    iStrelok

    I'm not familiar with these apps but I downloaded this for my iphone and I love it. Put in your stuff and it shows a reticle with the aiming point.

    I've tried a few Android apps, but I haven't really spent enough time on them to say how good or bad they are.

    Airgun Helper Mobile 3 Seems to do a bit of everything, the pellet database is very handy, as is the gunrack, though very US oriented. If I could concentrate on it for a day while at the range, with a chrono and proper measuring tools, I might do it justice.

    Airgun Wizard Pyramid Air primarily a calculator app, but useful.

    If you pay for Strelok+ it allows you to set your scope magnification and it then scales the reticle to the magnification so you can see where the shot will fall. Also, as you alter the magnification it gives a readout of the distance each reference point on the reticle would give.

    Using the BC and pellet weight from here (http://www.photosbykev.com/wordpress...pelletdata.htm) I have added the data into the program and the output looks pretty good so it looks like it could work well for airguns too. When I get my rifle back I will set a proper test up to confirm it.

    I started using this a week or so ago, and today I was lucky to attend the GB youth training squad, well not as a shooter (as way too old) per say but by a couple of the staff so I could bench test my new pistol, while there I did do some shooting to see how it shot after tuning, afterwards my targets were scored, and when home I used Target Scan to save the images,m the scores were exactly the same including some tight line cutters, again its impressed me. I can really recommend this as a worthwhile purchase, especially as there should be some good updates in the future

    Just seen these posts ,at our rifle club lanight a newer member had an app for Ipad and Iphone, on shooting his targets he just placed them verticaly on our monitor screen , took out his Iphone ,the same as taking a picture veiwed the shot target , the phone adjusted the rings on the phone to suit the target, and instantly the target was scored, it also logs each target ,give you your averages and thermaly gives your hottest score? each shot is shown on the target in great detail and records each target to be viewed later, it was quite an eye opener next visit I will try and find out what it is, and post an update unless you know already what it is.

    Chair gun is available on all 3 platforms now, and iirc was written by a BBS member.

    Do your research on the pc version and then use the phone app while out shooting.

    Cheers
