    Re: Pool Calculator for Android?

    "Pool Pal" is a free droid app that has TFP recommendations in the description, and some references in the settings. I just got it today. Looks cool and tracks changes per pool, and you can add multiple pools.

    Been using Pool Pal for almost a year now. I'm thinking I paid $2 for it when I got it, but it is free now. I highly recommend it.

    My apologies. I stand corrected. I very much appreciate your app and your timeliness in patching improvements to it.

    Re: Pool Calculator for Android?

    I'd like to add: there is another quite useful app I use in my testing. There is a flashlight app that uses the screen instead of the camera flash; it just turns the entire screen bright white. I use the screen as a lightbox for the K-1000 pH test. I find this way to be more consistent than holding the comparator up to the sky. It was also a necessity for testing during the winter as the sun was always down by the time I got out to test the pool. The app is called "Flashlight" by Devesh Parekh.

    Re: Pool Calculator for Android?

    I use the Android app. SimplePool Pro. It does indeed give suggestions for adding chlorine during the shocking process. You have to setup your pool first. And perhaps it only available in the Pro version. I set it up to use TFP guidelines.

    If you like it, maybe consider bringing that functionality into PoolPal. You could add a tab between "Log" and "Config" and maybe call it "Lightbox."

    Its a great app no matter what; I'm just thinking out loud here.

    Thanks guys, I'm going to give Pool Pal a try. I have been using poolcalculator.com in a browser and it works fine, but doesn't support multiple pools.....

    Loving PoolPal app. Makes it easy to adjust chem right by the pool. Just don't drop your phone in the pool!

    I've been using Simple Pool since late last year. I will try Pool Pal too. I like that flashlight tip as well. Thanks everyone!

    I was skimming over these posts and read too quickly. I read that as "just drop your phone in the pool!" And was like. "Whaaaaa???"

    I got a whole mental picture and everything. lol I need to slow down my reading!

    Now that's what I would call a killer app. Just drop your phone in the pool and get your numbers! Ha...

    I've been using my own spreadsheet to log results on an S3 until now - just installed PoolPal. First impressions - great!

    Re: Pool Calculator for Android?

    I have tried using PoolPal a few times, but stopped because it did not seem to have the ability to manually set the date and time of the log entry.

    I find that I don't always have my phone with me when testing. I sometimes write down the results on a piece of paper and would like to be able to input them into the app afterwards.

    I never tried but I am not sure if it has an export capability.

    These two features would make it an awesome app for me.

    I currently use Google sheets and a downloaded copy of PoolMath on my phone and tablet. Not an ideal solution but it does work. I can update Google sheets from the phone, tablet and computer.
