    App for IPhone

    Does anyone know how to find the App for the pool calculator for the iphone? I've search but don't find it. What's it called.

    Put in Pool Calculator and it's the 2nd choice. The one with the floating calculator.

    Yep!

    If you are using iPad and have wifi, the website pool calculator works just fine by the way... but on iPhone the app is better.

    Great what a joy that will be to have it pool side.

    Another option - I use a plastic cup and take 12 or so ounces into the house and do my testing inside, except for the CYA test.

    I've done that before also but my pool is a distance from the house so I'm looking forward to doing it all pool side this year.

    Mine is too. I'm on 1.25 acres and they set my pool in the middle of the back yard.

    I've got the same app, but mine won't save the settings. Has anybody else had this issue?

    Yes, the failure to save settings is a known issue. It's been years and there hasn't been any sign of them fixing it, so don't expect anything to change. It does save settings for a while, how long varies dramatically, but eventually (or often) it loses them.

    It will save my settings as long as I don't turn my phone off. It's still handy.

    Re: App for IPhone

    It will probably retain the settings so long as the app isn't explicitly shut down -- when you double-click the Home button quickly and you see your actively running apps. If you close the app in that list, then you'll likely lose the settings. As long as the app is just suspended (which is what apps do when you close them normally), then the settings will likely be retained. Powering off the phone obviously explicitly closes all apps.

    Re: App for IPhone

    That's correct chemgeek. If the phone is on and the app is running in the background it saves the settings. I tried sending an email to them but it doesn't work

    Oh well. App still works.

    There is a large thread discussing SimplePool development somewhere.

    Re: App for IPhone

    I don' t know how this would work on an iPhone but with the iPad, you can use Safari to open the web page you want, like pool calculator page, tap on the share button and choose save to home page. It will put a button on your home page that will take you directly to that site. I have a pool calculator button and a TFP button on my home screen. Works great! You can also edit the verbiage for the button name.
