About ShotCalc for Pool

This app will help you find aiming solutions for all pool, billiard, and snooker games. Hold phone in level portrait orientation for all measurements.It is recommended to rotate the phone along each of its three axes for 5-10 seconds immediately after opening the app to improve accuracy. This only needs to be done once every time you move to a new pool table.

CALCULATE SHOT ANGLE AND AIMING POINTS VIA TRIANGULATION:

(1) Stand behind object ball and align vertical white line from center of object ball to pocket or target, tap.
(2) Stand behind cue ball and align from edge of cue ball to opposite edge of object ball, tap.
(3) Stand behind cue ball and align from center of cue ball to center of object ball, tap.

CALCULATE SHOT ANGLE AND AIMING POINTS VIA GHOST BALL GUESS:

(1) Stand behind object ball and align from center of object ball to pocket or target, tap-hold for 1 second.
(2) Stand behind cue ball and align from center of cue ball to center of ghost ball, tap.
(This option is useful for quantifying your personal aiming method but is potentially less accurate)

ShotCalc uses the local geomagnetic field to calculate relative pool shot angles. The angular measurement can be accurate down to a fraction of a degree when the magnetometer is calibrated. However, the geomagnetic field is easily influenced by objects in the environment (buildings, beams, etc.) The app will ask the user to re-calibrate if it senses that the magnetometer accuracy has been compromised. All that is required is to rotate the phone along each of its three axes for 5-10 seconds (tumbling) so that the training algorithm corrects for the local geomagnetic field distortions. This procedure is required each time the user moves to a different pool table or building, or if the phone is brought too close to magnetic material.

Enjoy!

Works very well. I have played for 52 years, and can vouch for the accuracy of this app. Of course you still have to be able to deliver a straight stroke, and hit the target shown. This is a good tool for learning or teaching.
