The App is a good, however switching between operators and facilities on a PCA 400 is not possible. It defaults to the last created operator and facility. Makes it difficult when you are doing work at multiple facilities for different contractors. Otherwise all the other app functions seem to work great. And the PCA 400 is a stellar analyzer.

The app and the qr scanner seems to work well with my intech analyzer. Only one problem is i scan the qr code and add my details in the description and for some reason the last 3 jobs are not in my saved records. How foolish of me to rely on the app without double checking. I would have been further off writing them on paper.

Spent 3hrs trying to figure out why the hell I cant download and repot readings, had to go through these comments to find out that they need to be saved to app on the phone and not the pca400. Now i have a bunch of readings that i cant use for the customer, very embarrassing. The fact the app cannot access items saved on the unit is pathetic. There are many field situations especially in industrial settings where i dont need to play with my phone while I have a analyzer running out of range
