I was wondering if anyone would be interested if I produced a page which was able to give various facts and figures etc.

The kind of things that would be on there would be a battery charge calculator, energy of weapons, FPS on various BB's lalala

It'd start off on here but have quite an 'app' feel to it and if I have time over the summer I might develop it for iOS & Android.

Let me know if you like the sound of it and as many suggestions for what could be in it would be great (i.e. what you want to calculate or other useful info)

sounds good, only thing i would love is if it was a downloadable app, then if i did, for some reason, need to calculate something on site...i could bring my laptop, i wouldnt mind paying 0-10 for such an app really, since it would (hopefully) be of high quality!

It's ares, it'll be ok...

:) android FTW! lol thing is i have an Ipod gen2 and never updated the OS on it so i think it might be at 3.(something) so if it is on iOS then i hope it isnt the most recent one :P also i just think apps run faster on iOS, so i have filled up my Ipod (8gb) with apps, 1 song ;)

It's ares, it'll be ok...

free would be better, get more downloads, maybe have some links or something back here to boost site traffic?

things I would want is like a logbook type thing for guns: what was done when and what FPS it is giving on a certain date, if that makes sense.
then obviously calculators and things.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

Love the logbook idea this is what we need. Any more?

I had no intentions for charging for it and just hoping that it would drive traffic back to the forum. At the moment the web version is what will come first (as it's easiest) but if all seems good then I'll go for the iOS and Android app.

great idea, dont want to waste time to find out people dont want it/only 20 people used it or something...

i thought maybe when you have time, the app could be updated (mobile versions only though) and have a mini version of the forum, but you need to have internet connection or something, not a great idea really but something, maybe a small encyclopedia as in, A-Z airsoft and explanations as to the answers to common questions and why these are answers, maybe a section where you can type in your FPS with a .2, then it should tell you what FPS should be with a .23/25/28/3/4/43 etc :)

It's ares, it'll be ok...

well doesnt run fast on iOS 4 AFAIK but anyway putting Marksman's guide there would be cool, if you split it into chapters..or something?

Want to keep it short and sweet for easy access and getting to the point quickly so will probably leave a big guide out.

if marksman ever had the time he could probably shorten it, to a compact guide such as,

Newbie+sniper=NO
Newbie+AEG= :D

:lol: haha joking but just a thought, or marksman can make his own app lol

It's ares, it'll be ok...

Just to say, there already is a airsoft app (called 'airsoftapp') on the market (at least for the iPhone, not sure about Android) as i actually have it, and you can put in 'x' ammount of fps and it will give you conversions from a .2 (or whatever you want) into a .25/.3 etc etc, plus there are extra sections where you can keep track of your guns and kit (what make, cost, accessories etc)

HOWEVER, it does cost 59p, so if you can make it free Dev then you would have a niche in the market, plus any other additions that will make it stand out :)

Also, i like that sound of an app for the forum, as sometimes the full site is a little annoying to work with (no offence, obv its designed for a full computer not something thats 4" by 2" :lol: )

I'd love to do the latter Lep but not sure I have the technical know-how for it and we don't have the money to get someone to do it.

Would you be able to give me a full list of what that app can do just so I know what we're up against? And anything you think it has missing. Obviously it would be great to be better and free.
