Imp, I would assume certainly not - it's designed for rifle fire. 

 

The problem with using the band slap noise for the muzzle shot, you need to know exactly what point the bands make that slapping noise. Half a foot is a significant difference when you're talking about a projectile travelling a couple of hundred feet per second over a fraction of a second. 

 

Here's how I did it at my old house. I recommend using a system that doesn't drive you crazy like this one did, but I managed to get the measurements fairly accurate (when the paper isn't shot to helton)

It gave me a 381 just once and other figures over 350. I would think it tops out at 999 or more.

Priorities Imp... priorities. I remember my wife called me once during a slingshot shooting video I was making. She seemed to think she did nothing wrong.

Very interesting information ! Am I to understand from all the above, that the app works ok on the iPod but not the iPhone! Or am I missing something that will make it click?

if you are not going to to use the 2 paper method and avoiding "secondary" noise this application for me is useless, much better is Audacity analysis, you can obtain average speed to target, or the same 2 paper method for the iPhone, I've learned to interpret correctly the 2 bursts noise pattern of a slingshot to match very close the 2 paper method without the cumbersome of it's installation and let me know the speed of every video I record  ... my 2 cents ...

Cheers

The app does not work on Apple. It works only on Android devices.

I know I am responding to an older thread. Great info too in this thread!

 

I did however notice that Apple now offers the app for Chrono Connect too now.

 

So are we allowed to use the Apple version of Chrono Connect also? Or only the Android version of Chrono Connect?

If it's anything like their maps, I'd say no! ;-) (kidding, I'm sure it's the same. Try it out!)

I don't have an iPhone, so can't test it. I do have an iPod and will try to give the app a go later this week.
