Great app! I am new to soaping and this app is very useful. Very easy to use and having the built in lye calculator makes things much easier. My only complaint is that the app adds in the water and lye weights to the total batch size, which makes the batch not fit in the mold correctly. Mold size calculations are for oil weight only!
Few bugs, but nice to have I am happy to have the option to formulate with percentages. Would like a sign in or link to my BB account, I had to change phones and lost all my recipes, plus I can't access the recipes on other devices. Would like reminders for HP soap, minimum timer is 21 days. Would like to name each batch separately, if I use the same recipe for multiple batches they all have the same name, makes it difficult to figure which one is which without going back to the recipe page. Even with images the reminder page changes
I would recommend this. I love the feature to set a calendar reminder and add a photo to a batch. Two things I would like: 1) Allow renaming of a batch based upon a recipe 2) Allow resizing of batch based upon oils only. Currently, you can only resize based upon total batch weight. Other than that, it's a very handy app, certainly worth its low price.
Need an integrated fragrance calculator. No place to put fragrance oils and colorants, preferably in list form not just a note box. Needs water discount feature. Can't override lye for things like pulp additions. Too basic for a paid app.
Love this app I make soap on a regular basic now I hate to look back at my writing notes every time I'm making soap. I love this app very easy to use and so easy to find my recipe.I recommended it for beginners and professional soap makers.
Bugs. Pics change. Freezes. This app would be great if it worked. It doesn't. Reminders for batches sounded great. Ok, well. Can't name batches, but can take pics. Ok, yay! BUT- the app changes pics of the soap randomly. So, that feature is useless. Camera freezes it EVERY TIME. Reminder editing freezes app, forget clearing old reminders. No ability to calculate recipe based on oils only. No safeguards built in to tell a new soaper that their recipe will fail (values absent, but thats an ann marie thing). Pass. There are better apps
