Very good app, only a few possible improvements.
Dark Fire write:
The app is great and does what it needs to very well. It is an easy interface to use and looks professional.
My only points to improve the app is:
• Put a refresh button to manually update the metal prices. Many times I am connected to the internet and the prices may or may not update.
• If there was an addition to track the metals you own based their characteristics, current value, and cost you bought it at along with historical charts, this app would be PERFECT! Other apps have this capability, but none do the calculator, charts, and investment tracker in one (that I have found).
This is an updated review on version 2. Love the new interface! Much more readable and professional looking! Does this program do everything? No, but if you expect it to for $3, you're completely unreasonable.
Very Useful for Gold Buyers
5 Stars easily if it wasn't for a mediocre user interface and spelling errors. This is after all a calculator so the interface needs user input to calculate the type of precious metal (Spot price is calculated instantly and is updated when you start the app and again anytime you push the price button again), also, the user must choose the weight type (Troy Ounce, Gram, Grains (spelled wrong in app "Grian", very annoying), etc.), then the purity in the metal, then percentage of spot (Percent is also spelled wrong in the app).
When clicking through these options, there is no [Done] button to return back to interface, for example, when you spin the purity wheel in Gold from 10K to 18K, you are stuck at the wheel, I could only figure out to click outside the wheel on the GUI to get back to it.
Aside from all of the other great ideas in previous reviews I still say it is a very useful app and I use a metal detector so I find gold jewelry all the time, this gives me a quick value right in the field. Because this is how "I" use it, I really liked the idea of having the future ability to save a calculation and to be able to take a picture along with that entry, and when it's in the saved folder and named, all calculations are updated immediately to spot when you view the folder containing your saves. Also in gold . . . The ability to enter a numerical amount besides the preset standards on the wheel (10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, 24k, etc.). I want to have the ability to enter .825, etc. Maybe even have a button that launches a quick popup window with a conversion chart (.750 = 18k, etc.).
Very well done - useful and easy to use
