Interesting app for your bow sight
« on: October 19, 2016, 10:11:10 PM »

I like tinkering around with technology items. I've been getting my bow sighted in over the past few weeks, but the indoor range that I go to has a max distance of 25 yards. So, it's a bit difficult to sight it in at 30 & 40 yards. A couple of weeks ago, I was reading about an app for your phone that can allow you to adjust your 30 & 40 yard pins once you get dialed in at 20 yards. You need to know your arrow speed and then you just overlay your pins onto the phone and dial in the30 & 40 yard pins.

Here's what the app looks like:



Just align the 20 yard pin on your bow on the 20 yard line on the app, then adjust your other pins to the desired marks on the app. I did just that on my bow today, and my first arrow at 30 yards was dead on. I was really skeptical when I first heard about the app, but I'm a believer in it now.

Something similar could be made with would hold the phone out at a distance from the scope, but this app won't work because the scope is not going to allow for the phone to be laid right on it.

It works the same way the HHA sights tape works though I suppose
