Not sure if this is a problem with the app or it's the way I'm using it.

As soon as I leave a screen for test results/add chemicals, my test result I entered disappears or reverts to some other number. Then go to the CSI, and all fields are blank. I suspect it may be that I need to create a log each time I test anything and also will need the subscription, which is fine, but the process just seems counterintuitive with extra steps to me. I feel like the last numbers entered should stick.

Example... go into FC, my CYA is 40, I set it to 40, my FC is 3.4, I set it to 3.4, then when I go back and then into FC again, it has reverted to 20 and my FC reverts to 0, and the target is off because the CYA reverted.

I've been using it this way since getting the app, just want it to work better for me.

You do need a subscription to store test data.

When you enter the test results for that test session, then touch the check mark in the upper right to save the data.

Ok. Still seems like extra steps. Just saying.

Best way to setup subscription? Through the app? On Android here.

Yes. Use your Membername and password for the forum. That way you can share your poolmath logs.

Subscription enabled, logged out and back in... still does not retain any of my testing entries, and there is no check mark in the upper right that I am seeing.

I wnet to the FC screen, entered my CYA, FC, and what I want my target, went back to main app screen and entries are all gone. Same goes for pH, TA, CH, etc.

It looks like this on my Andriod tablet. Check mark is in upper left right corner.

I got it now... I was just entering test results on the individual screens from the main screen instead of starting with a new log of test results. Wasn't clear to me all this time, but now I got it. Subscription definitely needed to do testing like that.
