Thanks so much. Would you mind if I post your reply in the RCU thread? This is exactly the kind of feedback I am looking for. If others see it, it may inspire others to participate and other testers would see the feedback. That will really help me.
I have included a new APK file that has Temperature and Displacement on the Unit Converter.
But because of this email I had a eureka moment after reading it. On the Wing Area calculator (and some others) the screen is reconfigured based on a selection at the top. So I enabled the Wing Area calculator in the version attached. It is not functional, but it does re-layout the screen when you pick different wing planforms so you can see what I am talking about.
What I am thinking is that the Cylinder selector can change the mode of the Engine Size calculator to just a Displacement calculator so the user doesnโt have to go to the Unit Converter. I donโt have the unit changers change the input units anywhere because we found that that led to confusion during operation., But in Displacement mode on the Engine Size calculator, it would just have From: and To:
I will be making this app available in the Android Market and in the Amazon Appstore, so installation issues will be non-issues there. For testers, it is just a little more complicated. Using something like ES File Manager is convenient. ES File Explorer is available in the Android Market and in the Amazon Appstore.
I will have a web site at [link]http://www.ModelCalculator.com[/link] with more calculators done in Microsoftโs Silverlight technology. But they will only run on Windows PCโs and Macs. I plan to have tablet versions of some more advanced building , designing, and performance calculators as well. The web site will be the support system for the Android and iPhone/iPad apps as well.
My goal for this app is to have something that someone can use in the shop or out at the field even if they donโt have a good network connection. And a large part of the goal is developing the skills to develop, test, and deploy viable Android applications. So when you have any issues, please let me know.
