    Pool calculator Android app

    I was wondering about the pool calculator app for Android, or another app. Is the calculator app worth it? I downloaded a free app called pool pal, but the amount of bleach varies between it's calculations and that of poolcalculator.com. Does anyone have any experience with this app or another similar? Thanks for your help!

    A number of people on the forum recommend Simple Pool for Android devices.

    I cant seem to find this Simple Pool in the market is it/or was it only a beta version?

    is it possible we may someday see the pool calculator on android? That would be sweet then my pool care would be 100% mobile as I have my spreadsheets and graphs all on my phone just need a pool calculator app and I don't need to fire up my laptop. However I can use my browser to access the calculator, but an app would be sweet!

    +1 - could also use a recommended one, or better yet the PoolCalculator ported to Mobile.

    Yeah, that simplepool is a pretty good alternative. I've noticed a couple inconsistencies between it and the pool calculator.

    Re: Pool calculator Android app

    My big problem with "Simplepool" is the options for making adjustments. The one I need to deal with most--chlorine--has no option for 12.5% bleach which I use exclusively, so it is no use to me at the moment. That is the best priced bleach in my part of the world, $2.99 a gallon.

    The option for 10% and 12.5% chlorine will be in the next release... which is coming out tomorrow.

    I don't mean to detract from the specialized Android apps, but you can access the normal Pool Calculator on your android phone using a web browser. Works just like normal.

    Yeah this is what i have been doing since simplepool didnt have tge 12.5% option for chlorine this mornings update fir simplepool has added the 12.5% option. I prefer an app as it eliminates the pinch and zoom effect via browser abd works still if you donf have wifi or network signal. The simplepool app is ok but i think im staying with the poolcalculator as there are some slight inconsistancies between the two.
