Nikon "Spot On" scope software

Nikon has launched a handy online application called “Spot On”. A user can select the Nikon scope and the ammunition they are using and then application will then generate a variety of printable charts and tables for the user to use at the range or in the field.

The application is written as a Java applet and on my Mac runs very slowly.

    I saw a video mentioning that Nikon might be making a phone of the "Spot On" application. Do you have any idea when this might be?

    This program is amazing. If there is one thing that drives me crazy it is doing math calculations to figure out bullet drop compensation – mils, moa, converting moa to mils – etc., etc. it gives me a headache! With my Nikon scope and this software I just create a cheat sheet that I tape to my stock. Using my BDC reticle, the Spot On program tells me exactly were to hold over. With my Nikoplex reticle, it tells me exactly how many clicks to come up at any given range. No more guesswork or trying to do calculations in my head. Nikon has made my long range shooting vastly easier, better, and more enjoyable.
