Ballistic has come quite a long way since version 1.0. The victim of a $5.99 theft in the App Store, Ballistic was the antidote to a headache created byÂ what was, at the time, the only iPhone app thatÂ had the gaul to call itself a ballistics calculator (and inaccurately, mind you). Today, Ballistic is beloved by avid hunters, top competition shooters, and even the military. And unlike some of the competing applications in the App Store, we didn’t have to fuglify Ballistic with olive drab green themes to make it look more commando-fashionable, add silly pictures showing the user how to hold their gun, or cutesy icons to show you which way the wind was blowing. Why? Because Ballistic is an application for shooters. Ballistic’s success has shown that shooters are smarter than your average consumer, and demand a rugged, high performance ballistics computer – not a toy app. Ballistic has led the way in new and revolutionary features the competition has sought to copy to stay afloat. With version 2.x, Ballistic incorporated the world renowned JBM ballistics engine, which is the gold standard other ballistics applications use to measure their own performance. Ballistic’s best days are still to come. So my question to the intelligent and experienced crowd out there using my application is: What do you want next?
Here are the rules. Whatever features you ask for have to be something a large portion of the user base would use; it can’t be a personal preference feature. Features must increase a shooter’s capabilities, rather than decrease them by dumbing the shooter down (for example: no pretty pictures). Features must overall make the application something more usable in the field, but without making the application more complicated to use. Finally, all features must be useful, and not just “cool”.
