[prMac.com] Stinnett, Texas - Announcing that Blackleaf Software LLC, the developer of Concealed Handgun License State Reciprocity List, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Until now, travelers with concealed handgun permits have had to do hours, if not days, of tedious research to learn which states recognize their concealed carry licenses; but Concealed Handgun License State Reciprocity List 1.6 puts reciprocity information for all 50 states right at their finger tips. Information is quickly accessible and users can save time and stay on the good side of the law by knowing exactly where they can carry, before they even leave home.
These are some of the features that make this a must have app for handgun owners:
* The latest state reciprocity changes as of June, 2010 for all 50 states
* Easy to use onscreen controls
* Easy to read, color coded maps
* Reverse reciprocity look up
* Internet buttons to learn about handgun laws within each state
* Read the second amendment right in the app
* Supports portrait and landscape modes
When they open the app, the user simply picks their home state from a list by tapping the screen. The next thing they will see is a complete list of states that recognize concealed handgun licenses issued by their state (reciprocity).
New for this version is the Reverse Reciprocity feature. This button allows users to quickly see a list of states whose concealed handgun permits are recognized by the state they are currently viewing.
While viewing a list, simple onscreen buttons allow the user to see these states on a color coded map, or learn more about a particular state. Portrait and landscape views are supported, to make map viewing easier.
It's a gun owner's responsibility to know the laws of any state where they intend to carry their gun. To make this easier, Concealed Handgun License State Reciprocity List 1.6 now gives users a "Website" button which takes them directly to a state's website, where they can learn everything they need to know without leaving the app. With the second amendment to the US constitution contained right in the app, interested users can also learn more about their constitutional right to bear arms.
When asked why he thought there was a need for an app like this in the app store, Dustin Irvin had this to say: "After taking a concealed handgun course my family and I had trouble gathering a list of states and their laws. We travel frequently so this app was exactly what we needed to quickly reference our ability to carry our handguns in states. Then, if we had any questions about specific laws, we could access the website directly within the app to go over specifics of concealed carry with that state."
The developer points out to responsible handgun owners that state reciprocity lists can sometimes change between app updates. It's their responsibility to carefully check all information so they can carry safely, carry legally, and know where they can go.
