BlueShot - Record Chrono data to your Android device.

Hi,

I am keen to find out more about Paintball. My brother and I have been developing an Android app and interface - BlueShot - to directly record shot speed data from a Chrony F1 or Combro Chrono, and wondered if this would be of interest to other Paintball enthusiasts?

Some of the features we have so far -
- Simple to use, just plug the BlueShot interface into your Chrony or Combro and Android phone, then start shooting.
- Use it anywhere, you don't need a PC.
- Accurate - Gets the shot data direct from your Chrono.
- See the shot data how you want it with Dashboard, List and Chart views.
- Simple export of your shot string via email.
- Each display updates as you shoot, see what is really happening. Easy to change settings.

My brother and I have made a short demonstration video of it in action -

ZBM2 - Android Apps - BlueShot

This is with an air rifle but, we have also tested it with a Chrony F1 Chrony, which would work great with a Paintball marker.

As a newbie to the world of Paintball, I would really appreciate your thoughts and feedback.

Thanks!

Regards
Nicolas

I would be interested on iOS but Android would be good to have too. A lot of us do efficiency testing and manually record chrono data and produce charts off of it so something like this would be useleful. Maybe add some more analytical functions to it like average velocity, standard deviation, etc? It would also be cool to record the environmental conditions at the time as the running of 12g co2 are temperature sensitive.

Check out my thread here on efficiency tuning for a marker:

Due to Apple restrictions I do not currently have plans for an iOS version. Interesting idea adding an option to record temperature. BlueShot already has basic stats and graphs, but I could certainly add others that people would find useful. If you have an Android phone handy you can load up the app and try it in "demo" mode - you don't need a chrono connected to see the features and try it out. The app is free.
Thanks again for your feedback.

You can find the app here

Do let me know what you think of it. Thanks.
