I'm a fan of the original quick reference books and so naturally i purchased the app. It supplies all the original information and as an added function, performs plug in computations for various formulas. The only thing missing is a better interface. It needs something to facilitate quick access to the various sections without having to look under multiple sub categories. The search function is available, but in a rush you want to have a visual cue (maybe different colors for categories).

I have an Ugly's spiral book and love it. It's very useful on the job, loaded with information & helpful tables for all aspects of the job. I was expecting the app to be a digital version of the spiral book. Not even close. It's extremely stripped down to the point of being nearly useless. For what's actually included, there are free apps with more information. Helpful for a first year apprentice. A bad joke for a journeyman electrician. Not at all worth the $12.99. Got the refund & uninstalled.

It's good. The information is there. maybe build in a few more interactive features(maybe a follow-along for some of the wiring diagrams so I can click on components to bring up further information, or a pipe bending chart with a slider bar so I could drag my finger on the bend/lengths to increase/decrease values). Maybe clean up the UI to more of a picture based list. I can find everything though, so it's good enough to stay on my phone
