    Pool Calculator for iPhone !

    Just wanted to give two thumbs up to Jason for making the most excellent pool calculator available in the app store for iPhone. I downloaded it yesterday and am enjoying how well it works, and also how it is a quick reference guide to the basics of BBB and chemical use/application.

    It was nice to be working out by the pool yesterday and not have to come inside to get to the desktop pool calculator. I could always load the calculator by going to the TFP website on my iPhone too, but the dedicated app is way more convenient, and dare I say "Mac-Like".

    I love it and highly recommend it

    I love it too.

    Any plans on adding some more features? Like the ability the log your test results and log the amount of chemicals you add with temperature and anything else? The ability the export the informations or transfer to a website?

    Livinright, thanks!
    fharczuk, yes, there are some new things coming. Unfortunately, I can't comment on just what for a couple of weeks.
    GrantsPool, no, there isn't a Blackberry version yet. I will add you vote for Blackberry support to my wish list for possible support in a future version.

    iPhones can dream of electric sheep if you get the right app.

    Re: Pool Calculator for iPhone !

    Love the Ap! Is there a way to set the "goals". Mine shows "goal: not set up" but I can choose the target and it works fine

    The only thing I can think to make it better would be to include BBB instructions for each condition. AK too low? Add xx oz. of B.

    The one I'm using does that - but only when you need to (you are off of the target value)

    Yes, on the iPhone version go to the Goal tab on the bottom bar. To see the Goals tab you have to slide the bottom bar to the left. On the web version you need to scroll down to the yellow Suggested Goal Levels section near the bottom.
