Ballistic Programs For Android Phones ??
Does anyone use these? If so what kind do you have? I been looking at them and this one seems to be one of the better ones. It's $ 9.95 to download it. I've never done anything like this before, and I don't know if my phone, (a year old Motorola Moto G), will support it? For example do I need to download a GPS program, or is it already in the phone? Also, how can I tell if my phone is v-1.6 or higher? (That's what's required for the download).
I'm more afraid of myself than the product. A lot of these are really information overload, but they are really nice once you figure them out. Are they relatively easy to use? Right now I'm trying to educate myself before I download anything. I mainly want the drop tables out to, and beyond 1,000 yards. They have these with most all of the modern, long range bullets currently on the market. And it say's they are always providing updates for new bullets as they become available. What say you guys?

If you have an Android phone, you can look under settings & find out what version you are running. You should also have Google maps on the phone and that will act as a GPS device, providing you have your location turned on in the phone settings & you have a data plan.
As far as apps, I have always found anything I needed in the Google play store under free apps.
Note! If it's not in the Google play store, it's a 3rd. Party app & you are taking a serious risk downloading it.
I would not!
