Has anyone used this app?

Used it a couple times and I have a couple techs that use it regularly. It's a okay app for basic superheat and subcool measurements. Entering the return wetbulb and drybulb and supply drybulb, it helps decide if the airflow is high, low or correct. You can email a report from it once you've filled in the data and it has some simple diagnostics. Nothing really fancy, but a decent app. I think I paid $6 for it, but one of my techs told me it was $10 now.

I have had it for a month, not to bad for quick sh or sc when no manufacturer specs. You enter your pressures, liquid and suction line temps, od temp, and return wb, and it shows you your saturation temps, sh, and sc, and recommended sh and sc if no manufacturer specs.

I have it and used it a few times but it didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know. I carry a general superheat calculator chart but if you don't have that then it could be useful. For new techs I think it could be very useful because it makes you take every reading under the sun.

Used it a handful of times, mostly to confirm my own calculations with pen and paper or in my head. Cost me $6 from memory? For a basic superheat / subcool calculator it seems ok, puts you in the right direction if you need to - good for someone like me who is still learning and needs the experience under my belt!

Well I went ahead and purchased it. For the cost it is helpful. Like the indicator if the system is in, over, or under range.
