Center Of Gravity iPhone App

I hope I'm not breaking any rules (I checked but didn't see any that apply) but I wanted to let the small aircraft pilots here know that my CG Finder iPhone App was just added to the iTunes store today.

The main purpose of this app is to give you an easier way to see how the change in weight of a particular station affects your center of gravity. The app doesn't use the traditional graph to display your CG. Instead, it uses two sliding rings that are green if you are within your CG envelope and turn red when your weight is too far forward or aft. You can select one of the stations (lets say your rear baggage compartment) and move a typical iPhone slider left/right to add/subtract weight. As you move the slider you'll see your CG move in real-time. No need to go back a page, enter values and reload. Once the initial values are entered, the slider basically does all the work.

You can see it how it works on the support web site before you download.

I hope you find it useful and send feedback so I can make improvements in the next version. I already have plans to allow you to customize the names of Stations 4-8 as well as store initial data for multiple aircraft.
