Any chance you can port this to the IPAD as well? Running the tiny screens of the ipod apps is hard on my old eyes.

Been out hunting for a week and just checked the thread.

I will work on the suggestions. Thank you for the feed back.

Make sure you all have updated your version of the app. Review it as well.

iPad requests still out number Android requests, so iPad has higher priority.

Gun Log 3.0 for iPad

You wish is my command.

Okay, I finally got the iPad app finished. It is a Universal App, which means it is the same app on the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. The "views" are updated to take the space available on the iPad. Orientation changes are now detected as well, but honestly on the iPhone portrait is the best, in my opinion.

For security reasons Gun Log doesn't export your data in anyway. Because of this you cannot share data between an iPhone and iPad version. It is a trade off.

Enjoy this update my friends.

Gun Log 3.1 available

There was a concern about the target view where you view photos you take of your firing session's target.

I went through it and re-wrote it. It was too busy. A scrolling view inside of another, so that the controls could be pushed out of the way. Well now the controls set on top of the picture and just tap and hold and the fade away. They are also transparent which helps a lot as well.

Requests for additional calibers and manufacturers have been fulfilled as well. Especially for the .45-70.

After the next release, which is well under way, I am thinking of slowing down development and going out and doing other things with my evenings.

For $0.99 I think the Gun Log has a boat load of features.

Thanks for all of you early adopters. You helped fund my FN SCAR purchase and I think of the support every time I shoot that fine weapon.

I am considering changing the price of the app after the next major feature release. I am 99% sure that a price change will not affect those that have already purchased, if it does, I will lower the price back down and let it alone. I will not punish those that have done me a good turn.

If a "major" sponsor want to dress up a version I am willing to work out an arrangement and maybe we could get the app to be free or something, or maybe they could fund some features or such.

Don't forget the blog and the users group.

Chris B, Androids and Electric Sheep? Maybe in their dreams...

Meanwhile, the app seems to have potential. Are there possible security issues? Yes, but that's true of any cell phone, iPhone, iPad, online computer, etc...

GunLog seems to have similar features to MiGuns App for the iPhone and iPad. I saw that MiGuns just lowered its price.

Isn't competition great!

I just read MiGun's support page. Very nice app.

Quote:
Fields Include: Company, Gun Model, Gun Type, Caliber, Finish, Barrel Size, Purchase Date, Amount and a generous note space area.

• Customize all the fields including the drop-down menus to fit your needs.

• Use the Note Field to keep track of when and to whom you sold a weapon.

• Search any word on any field in your gun collection
Gun Log also has make, model, type, caliber, purchase date, purchase amount, notes.

It seems the driving usage or function for the apps are different. MiGun's usage seems to be based around tracking critical and important information that can be used for reporting stolen weapons or recalling what you paid for a gun, and related uses.

Gun Log was developed around the idea of "shooting". Because both apps store gun descriptions there is some overlap in functionality.

http://gunlogapp.blogspot.com/2011/10/gun-log-32.html

Not only can you take store a picture of your gun, you can store a picture of each configuration of your gun. Also you can store a picture of your targets.

There are fields for group size, point of aim, point of impact, firing stance, and other related firing information.

There is a bullet drop estimator that gives you an idea of how to sight in your weapon and the path of the bullet.

There are reports for weapons, firing sessions, and ammunition.

So, two nicely priced apps, originating around a different usage model, and surely destined to become more and more alike.

Some screen shots of the Weapon Information stored...



-----


-----

----

But Gun Log is about shooting, recording your results and weapon/ammo failures, maintenance logs, and the relationships of how certain configurations, ammo (including hand loads), all work together.

The goal of Gun Log is to go shooting! These are the results:


Buy the app the fits your needs. At the price the apps cost, get them both!

Not me. I guess I'm paranoid. But, a paper log works perfectly fine for me - and I don't have to worry about "hackers", "trackers", or gun-haters from California gathering my gun information on devices they create.

No kidding; the cheap price of apps is a blessing. Compare to desktop apps costing typically $30 or more. Apple's App Store has eliminated layers of middlemen (distributors) making it possible to sell these programs so cheaply.

When there are half a dozen apps that serve a purpose I need very much, I won't hesitate to buy several and then compare them. I'm only out maybe $10 for the entire lot! What else can I buy that's that cheap ? A single router bit can cost $50 or more.

When I read user reviews of apps, I'll sometimes come across a review from some ingrate who is downgrading the app (as in, 1 star) because it sells for $0.99 instead of for free. Astonishing.

There have been a few releases of Gun Log and Gun Log +P since the last post.
Passcode added, all kinds of things.

I finally decided that a comparison needed to be done on some apps, so I made a comparison/review blog.

http://gunappreviews.blogspot.com/

The apps sell consistently and are often in the top 10 of what's hot in the Sports category on iPad.

As for the funds going to my next toy, as I posted earlier to the forum, I got my Browning 1911 A1 22 that I had been saving for and looking for.

Thank you all that helped make it so.

Gun Log 5.1 was just released. All of you Gun Log users should upgrade! The upgrade is free as usual. No ads, no in-app purchase for new features, you get it all. Enjoy the app.

Gun Log +P will be updated with the new functionality later this summer.

I just got the app a few days ago mainly as a way to catalog my inventory and track serial numbers. One thing I noticed when adding my guns is a lot of redundancy in the options. Things like the option of selecting "S&W" and also "Smith and Wesson" as a make. Same thing with the options of "9mm", "9x19mm", and "9mm Parabellum". Too many redundant choices available.
