Our IAP Bushings & Tubes App reached 700 downloads in November and is rapidly approaching 800 downloads.

Thanks for your continued support and use of the app. Please send me any suggestions that you might have for improving the app.

Over 900 copies of our IAP Bushings & Tubes app have been downloaded from the Apple App Store to date.

We are working on updates to our database, but I can't give an ETA for when they will be available just yet.

We continue to appreciate your comments & suggestions for improvement to the app.

Edgar

Edgar,
My problem may be unique to me thanks to my scatterbrained approach to turning and my poor organization but I wish there was a way to search the information for a tube of x diameter and y length (+/- a given amount). I know how I would do this if I had access to the spreadsheet but I do not have that on my phone.

There is limited capability along those lines at the present time. For example, the Bolt Action kits have a tube length of 1.97" and a diameter of 0.368". You can enter a search term of 1.9 .36 (leaving a space between the two numbers) and the app will return a list of kits with the same dimensions or slight variations such as the Southwest (1.92 & 0.368) and Flat Top American (1.99 & 0.368).

This particular search will also find kits matching just one of those terms (such as the Chairman with 1.97 & 0.268) because the search looks for matches on any of the terms in any field.

The search algorithm is pretty basic at the present time, but we may add more sophistication in the future to allow such things as AND (match all terms), specific parameters rather than any parameter, and range bounds rather than exact matches.

I can't give you any time frame or promises on such additional capability, but we do appreciate your suggestions and will take them into consideration.

Thanks
Edgar

Would this app be compatible with my Windows PC if I download the iTunes app? Thanks.

Short answer is no.

It only runs on iOS devices like iPhone, iPad & iPod. Although there may be iOS emulaters available, the user experience would be nothing like that of an actual device. The app uses a lot of gesture features that do not perform well in emulation environments.

Thank you for your quick response. I hope this app will be available for Android or PC in the future.

Is there any way I could get the bushing/tube chart in a different format than PDF? It would be extremely helpful and save a lot of time if I could do a word search (you can't do a word search with PDF). Thanks again.
