Basically all free ones on android are crap.
Pyramid airsoft wizard
Useless, more or less.
Basic FPS converter. Converts to m/s joules etc. Won't say FPS for different weight bbs.
Battery charge calc seemed to work ok.
Had airgun stuff.... no clue about that stuff.

Airsoft FPS calc basic.
Will say the FPS for different weight, but only has .2, .23 and .25 options.
Easy to use though.

Airsoft FPS tool basic.
Same as the last-minute exactly but also includes a save feature to remember FPS readings, like you guys were talking about
Easy to use, helpful due to being able to save.

Airbana.
Lots of features, places to play, events, even teams. Had a region filter to.
Had an FPS calc.it worked well but....to change bbs weight, joules or FPS u have to use these fiddle sliders which are a nightmare. It took me 2mins 43 secs to set it at 350fps on .28's
It was good except for the FPS calc.


What a good one needs.
Easy to use is a must, having to type in numbers is better than sliders.
Personal FPS diary is good.
Battery charge calc would be good.
Must be easy to use is the most important.
Oh and advertisements for the forum :P

I think it would definitely be free as it is something that hopefully people would find helpful and come to the forum for more help or just to be a part of the community.

Those that have said they would pay, we already have the patches or just a straight off way of donating if you want to help us out financially.

I'll definatley get this if you go ahead with it. Do a diary section maybe. Have you seen the SAS survial guide app? There's videos on that, maybe you could do something like that if you have the time and can work out how to do it! :lol:

Yeah I had already started:

Nothing complete about it though so don't be surprised if you see bugs in it.

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.


Ahh its no worries mate, tbh i should be getting my computer fixed soon so its all good :)

Right... its divided into three section: calculator, weapons and gear
Calculator: This can change the fps at any weight of bb to another weight of bb (ie 350 with .2 to 313 with .25), it also gives mph/kph/meters per second and flight distance in meters/cm/foot/inches (using muzzle height which can be changed to your specific height in settings). Then theres field settings with AEG, GBB and sniper settings (the fps limit, current fps and the 'delta', ie how much over/under)

Then theres the Weapons section, where you can keep track of all your 'gunz', in addition to acessories (foregrip, scope plus their makes) plus number of mags and what type they are etc, which is pretty much similar to the Gear section too (name and make)

Hope this has helped, as you can see theres a fair ammount of stuff in this app, but the calculations section is by far the most useful :)

Updated it with an FPS calculator.. let me know how I could improve it as I'm not sure the wording is perfect.

http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/app/#

You can enter any BB weight you like and it'll sort it out for ya ;)

Edit: Have introduced error checking so you can't give it minus values etc. if you have an idea to try and break it please let me know and report back.

Thanks :D

Still work in progress though. Hope to make it a little snazzier but not had any ideas for that yet. Hopefully the design will be a little better by the end.

Still need to sort out range, switching speeds into different types i.e. mph etc., also thought of putting a 'spring suggester' in there to tell you what spring you'll need to buy if you want to be firing 'x' FPS with 'x' g BB's.

Not too sure on getting the gun notes etc working on the web, think that would require log ins and stuff, would have to brush up on my Javascript. Definitely something to go in the mobile version if I can manage to code it.

Edit: Added the FPS converter now, let me know what you think on that too.

Any feedback on the app BatHat? I've realised the FPS converter isn't that great as you can only convert from FPS at the moment so I'm looking in to making it possible to convert from any type of speed to another.

Very nice, kinda wishes i new how to code... i would give it try but i don't know what software u need... the only problem with that app is the fact i dont know what FPS my gun fires at, so i cant use 3/4 of it :P apart from that very nice, but it would be good if it had a "log book" and "videos" section... that reminds me, are u gonna convert the forums youtube account into a community video channel, as im looking at doing a review of my GR16 as soon as i fix it...

@Mitchell, as much as the community channel sounds good, you know your gonna get some idiot who decides it is funny to get the account banned or deleted etc.

also my gun fires 250fps with a .25? cool :)
also i would do a video of my G36 if needed, i could always send you the raw/edited video so you can upload it (@Dev) ;)

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

for 5 minutes :lol:

No lol, I didn't even know u hdad one lol.

@dev its great, however on the FPS calc, it would be useful to be able to see the FPS result for more than 1 weight ;)
As you say, other speed units may be useful, however I don't think I'd use them too much, others might though :)

we have a forum YouTube?
