Smartphone Chrono App

Hey guys, just wanted to share a free app I found in the Google play store and my thoughts on it. It's called Chrono Connect Mobile, and as far as I know its the only app out there that lets you chrono airsoft guns from a smartphone. Basically you just set up a range where the target is ~10m away from where you're shooting, and the app uses the difference in time between the shot and impact sounds to calculate the speed. Granted, this calculates the average velocity and not the muzzle velocity, so its still no replacement for a proper field chrono. That being said, it seems to be giving me values pretty close to what my guns are actually shooting, and it definitely beats the old coke can chrono.

Curiousity and awesome weather got me to go outside and try it out. I put 5 shots across my calibrated table top chrono (331,334,332,331,334 fps) I entered the correct parameters into the app and took 5 shots. The app was able to register all 5 shots and gave me a velocivty reading of 304 fps. The accuracy of the app depends upon the individuals correctly entering the necessary values so I would def not treat it as a replacement for calibrated chronographs ( ambient noise at any airsoft event chrono station would probably render the app useless ) but it seems to be ok to give you a general idea of the range you're in. More useful than the old coke can chrono if your at home the night before an event trying to get dialed in.

Your touch screen can be used as a chrono. All you have to do is shoot directly on the screen, and the pressure of the bb is measured and analyzed by your phone.

Was that app created by the same devs that created the weight scale app that turns your smart phone into a 300 lb scale? Just stand on your phone and it will tell you how much you weigh.
