    Hey fellow catapultologists<br>I saw somebody in the german section posted a chrony app, i was curieus and the app was free so i downloaded it.<br>I first tuned it in, for instance your distance between you and your catchbox.<br>Then i tested it with only my catchbox but as this app is measuring with sound i only measured the impact and not the release, *error* was all it said.<br>So i put a piece of paper in between, retuned the app and tried again. This time i got measureings but i also missed 99% so it i now have no 14 mm steel left <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3"><br>Conclusion; the app is usable but not very practical. The fact that is free does make it worth a try tho.<br>If anyone would like to test it, here it is: <br><a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.chronoconnect.mobile.lite" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.chronoconnect.mobile.lite</a><br>I don't know if it is in the app store too but you can search the name, it is called chrono connect mobile lite

    Cool! I cant find any free version in AppStore, but there is AChrono that costs one dollar! I have to test that.

    okay, i tested this one again and with some changes in my setup i was able to get some readings, i had 9 good readings all between 154 and 159 fps which i think is not bad with 0'C

    I checked it out, it definitely would be better for airguns than slingshots.

    I have tried Achrono as well, doesn't have as much settings but it works just as well. <br>I still prefer my audio method with Audacity because if the distance restriction in Chrono connect (min 5m) I don't have enough space at home. But I suppose it would be ok for outside.

    Cool, that makes it more usable. <br>I just came up with an idea to see your target when using this app.<br>Instead of paper use a layer of plastic wrap on a picture frame ( I suggest a big one:). <br>It makes a noise and is easy to replace.

    That is smart, i messed up at least 10 shots because i couldn't see my target.
