TL:DR: App promises a simple idea, never delivers, and the developer never answers support requests. The idea of this app is pretty great: keep track of your filament, integrate with (one of) the ways to remotely control and monitor your 3D Printer. It even features NFC so if you have multiple reels of the same filament, you can keep them straight via cheap tags. Unfortunately, the app doesn't work and I regret buying it. The developer completely and totally failed to get the key, central part right: tracking filament use. If you EVER attempt to use the sync feature (the only reason to ever actually pay for this), it will consistently fail to upload your changes, and it will ALWAYS overwrite them. It doesn't matter what device you use to make changes to your filament, it doesn't matter if you manually refresh or let it sync on its own time. When the sync occurs, the app will immediately figure out "the data on your phone and cloud do not match. Update?" It actually asks you to update. If you click "yes", it will overwrite from the cloud every single time. I emailed the developer and they never responded. I could write this off as a coding glitch, but there's other reviewers with the same problem and no contact. This is a stupidly easy problem to solve: have the app compare the two records and add the differences in. Assign each new filament usage an ID and only add new IDs to the record, then add/subtract to get your differences. Include an "add filament" or"incomplete print" event/note that increases the filament level on the reel. BOOM. Never another irradicated history. Understandably, this could be a performance problem if you had a few thousand or even tens of thousands of entries for a spool, but you can fix that either by archiving whenever you 100% refill a spool (fresh list) or by just erasing the history from the old spool. That's just for the app's existent non-function. More extensively, this honestly NEEDS an octoprint plugin. Fine, you don't want to force people into the platform, just make it an option. Printoid already interfaces with octoprint, why not let THAT automatically feed you usage results. At least that way, you can catch unused filament from aborted prints, automatically.

A reel manager for everyone else. I took the time to get my reels weighed and entered into the Reel manager and it seems to work really well since now I have some way of knowing how much I have left and the cost of what I use. There are some non intuitive UI functions such as what long pressing does that is likely why some folks are having problems. Works great with Printoid.

Great concept, but full of bugs. I purchased the full licence and that only made it worse. You enter all your spool info just to have not add a spool or crash. The app lick constantly and crash right as you press save. The dev never gets back to you even after multiple attempt. I would love an app like this for just spool management that work 100% of the time.
