Hammock Hang Calculator
By Codeality LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Get the most comfortable and safe hang with your hammock! The Hammock Hang Calculator lets you calculate how high to set your anchors based on the size of your hammock and distance between points. Figure out how long your suspension lines need to be, even if you have a built-in ridgeline!
And with the new clinometer, you can measure your hang angle more precisely. Even more ways to get that perfect hang.
This calculator is useful on the trail, in the backyard, or if you plan on hanging a hammock indoors.
In addition to calculating hanging information, this tool lets you know the physics of a hang: how much tension and force are being applied to the anchor points, suspension lines, and hammock. Experiment with values to "dial in" your perfect hang.

Does the job is you are trying to figure your anchor point, but as another reviewer noted, it CAN'T calculate your suspension needed if you have a known fixed anchor height.
Also, it let's you swap between metric or Imperial ("English") measurement styles, but bizarrely forces you to use decimal style feet instead of using feet and inches (14.6 is not 14'6" which is 14.5). Since all this app really does is a single math formula for you, forcing you to do some of the math before input is unfriendly.
Simple to add that, but this app has not been updated in a long time. It's pretty, though, and if you avoid its limitations, does its job, albeit in a rather overpriced way.
Good but incomplete.
This is great because it eliminates trial 'n error setup, which is frustrating. But it does have a fixable flaw. The equation of this app focuses on anchor height, but what if the height is set and you need to know suspension length . This is the case with patio hammock stands. With a stand, all other variables are fix numbers. Knowing how long you need your suspension rope to be is the only unknown. Back to trail 'n error. Simple make all elements in the equation variable with a lock to mark which element is the unknown "X".
It works great!
I have a double nest eno, and before I was hanging it up in my room with no room in it. Once I did this, I have enough room and comfort to really fit two people in it.
