  1. Squad Mortar Calculator App (Android)

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean, though this may be because I haven't tested it using the safari browser (you can open up android apps in the safari browser?). On the app it has a title on each page which tells the user what to do. The first page says "Enter Mortar Coordinates", the second page says "Enter Target Coordinates" Would you be able to PM me a screenshot of what you're seeing if you get a chance? I'm curious to see what it looks like in the safari browser. That's a good idea, I'll have to look into that for both apple and android at some point.

    Hey everyone. I appreciate all the support, this week we cracked over 1000 installs! I've unfortunately been pretty busy these last few weeks so I haven't been able to work on the Apple version. When I get more time I'll do some research and start working on it. I'll keep everyone in the loop as far as progress goes. Thanks again guys! I love seeing people in game using it and all the great feedback the apps gotten. If you have any more suggestions feel free to post here or PM me, I read everything even if I don't reply directly.

    Hey, thanks for the feedback and taking the time to do a mockup. I like the idea of having the keypad selection and subsequent subkey selections all in one column. I'm not completely sold on the grid input on the left, however. I'll mess around with the editor and see if I can get something working. I worry about making any sweeping changes to the design without feedback from more users, however. I can certainly implement it and test it, though, and see what works. Thanks again for putting this kind of effort into improving the app, I appreciate it.

    As of now elevation of the mortar emplacement and target are out of the scope of this project. Ideally we could use the height maps of the level, along with the coordinate, to be able to calculate the height very accurately. It will be something to look into at a later date, however. Ide thought of saving mortar positions (see possible future features), but I hadn't thought of saving target positions. Its a good idea, I'll look into it for a future release. Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Update 1.5: Much higher precision: can now input sub-subkey and sub-sub-subkey. These inputs are optional, as that level of precision is not always necessary. Scroll down on the key and subkey input to see these new options. By far the most requested feature has been to add the ability to set sub-subkeys and sub-sub-subkeys. I've added that functionality to the app. You can now set mortar positions and target positions much, much more precisely. Adding these keys are optional, and set default to 5 as that is the middle of the next highest subgrid (if you select Grid A3 Keypad 4 subkey 8, it will hit in the center of subkey 8). Please let me know if anyone has any issues with this update, or any suggestions.Thanks again for all the support, and thanks for the pin mods!

    Absolutely, I'm currently looking into adding additional subkeys while still keeping the GUI simple. I think I've figured out a good way of doing it, keep your eye on the app for the next week hopefully I'll have it updated. And of course you're not coming off as too critical, I love getting feedback, I appreciate it. To everyone else thanks for everything. Nearly 300 downloads! I was expecting 50 tops!

    I'm gonna look into getting it on Iphones and Ipads. The back end of the app would be pretty easy to transfer over, since it's just math. I just have to learn Apple app development, shouldn't be too difficult.

    I appreciate it!
