Applied Ballistics Reviews


Not bad  Mrniceguy2010  4 star

Now that the app has been updated and supports CDMs it’s actually pretty good. I haven’t noticed any problems so far and the only feedback I have is just feature suggestions. Mainly I’d like to see it work with my AB kestrel as an alternative to the Kestrel Ballistics app. Since I already have the CDM library on it, it’d be great to be able to transfer profiles back and forth and have this AB app talk to the Kestrel for atmospherics. Other then that, this version is a great improvement


Can't re-edit ammo information?  RTSchramm  1 star

This app has the most confusing interface that I have ever seen in on the App Store. After painstakingly entering the data, having to constantly look up the unique terms on the company's web site, I can't edit my current ammo library to change my zero settings. There are plenty of other ballistic apps the use mostly the same open source ballistic calculator that are easier to use, have a better interface, are much better organized, and are cheaper and just as accurate out to 1000 yards! This app was a waste of money as far as I'm concerned. I was conned by the paid internet reviews.

No longer works  AIAX Shooter  1 star

I just performed the latest update (10.2.1) and this app no longer works. You can change data but when you try and calculate a solution, the app quits. Please fix asap

Good App and a few tweaks would make it better  Marc Denis  3 star

Bought this after owning Shooter and studying Bryan's books. My only suggestion for change concerns the moving target feature. Target motion is not accounted for in windage displays on the reticle view. Changing target speed changes 'wind' windage but not target windage. So... a few tweaks are needed. Looking forward to field use with a new 6.5mm rifle.


Dont  ccm812  3 star

Bought this app out of curiosity. Mildot Ballistic, Ballistic AE and StrelokPro are much better apps with StrelokPro being my favorite because it already has just about any reticule built into the app. Each gives data for your loads that are comparable but with every imaginable scope reticule built into the program makes StrelokPro stand above the others.

Military Shooter

Clean Install - New Version Works Great  Military Shooter  5 star

Works great after the update, it is best to do a clean install.

No stars. Horrible.  Jon Pynch  1 star

I have shooter. Ballistic. Bullet flight etc. they all work as advertised. I wanted ab to look how crosswind jump affects impacts at longer ranges. I've never rated an app or left a review but this app is terrible So it needed one. I triple checked my inputs into ab, and still couldn't find why it's outputs were so far off. It doesn't even come close to matching my other programs which have been confirmed by shooting in he field. It has a few bugs where it would freeze and need to be restarted, but mostly it's just a faulty app. Unfortunate because the ab kestrels are widely respected.


Unreliable  Qleeraym  1 star

This app has failed every turn of the corner. Especially on the day I'm at a freaking PRS Match. Waste of my money.


Used to be good, not it doesn't work.  Ffjohn  1 star

When I bought this app a couple years ago it worked well but needed some features added. Since then most updates have broken base features while attempting to add things like local weather auto populate. Currently Manually added Bullets don't calculate any info, bullet BC editing has multiple issues and updates and customer service are nearly non-existent. I once highly recommended this app but now it is pretty much worthless. Skip it and try another.


Does not work  …..  1 star

Changing any value causes the app to crash immediately.


Latest upgrade data doesn't match existing data  Kiwi1181  1 star

Updated and uninstalled like recommended. Before the update the results were in tune with my coldbore program and my real world data. Since the upgrade the applied solution for my load at 1000m is out by 10moa. I've checked all the parameters and then double checked but can't get the program to match my real world data or coldbore anymore. Wish I never updated it as I used this program a lot.


Applied Ballistic app  milspec5r  5 star

After many years of shooting and using multiple platforms of phones. This app has always proved a 5 star rating. When it has counted I have been able to make long range first round hits . But like anything rubbish in = rubbish out. If u take the time to set this up you will need no other app . I recommend this app to my mates over all others.


Reasonable Program but has major bugs  DTA338lapua  2 star

I purchased this program to use to calculate ballistics out to ranges of 1500yds. I live in Australia and no matter what I do, after I set my unit preferences then enable atmosphere and sync to station it changes my units from imperial to metric. I use imperial units while shooting and I find this to be that much of a hassle I now don't use the program. Applied Ballistics needs to fix this problem


Couple things  gregliss  4 star

When I enter the environmentals for the bullet zero data. The altitude keeps returning to zero, can't change it. No Kph for wind speed only Mps....please add kph support for the metric guys.
