I’m amazed

First time writing an app review - I just had to for this. I’ve been trying to balance my ceiling fan on my own for hours and just couldn’t figure it out... trial and error over and over again. Asked myself “I wonder if there is an app that can help”. Found this app and figured for .99 I’ll give it a shot.

I followed the instructions and it identified blades 1 and 5 to put weight on. It also specified the distance from center to put those weights. It immediately improved the shake but not by a degree that I wanted. My ceiling fan might not by like typical ceiling fans, there is a lot of weight to it. So I added additional weights and moved it a little further back than the suggested distance and it eliminated all wobble.

Only giving 4 out of 5 stars cause it’s not “perfect” but it tremendously helped me identify how to better balance my fan. Highly recommend anyone to give it a shot.

Good lighting was key to it registering

4.5 Stars really. This app has saved me many hours of fiddling with getting fans balanced. I read the reviews and instructions and the right lighting was key to it registering the movement. I replaced 6 ceiling fans in our house. Prior to finding the app, the first fan took over an hour to balance, then I tried using my phone to take a slow motion video to track the shifting, which was a good idea that didn’t work. I guessed correctly that if I could think of it , someone smarter definitely did before me. When I replaced a fan a year or so later, I had issues downloading because of software updates, but the developer quickly responded to my email, that it was a temporary issue with the AppStore, and in a day I was able to get the new version and it worked as well as it did previously. Please support this app. I even offered to repurchase and pay more, but he assured me it wasn’t needed.

Great Tool !

I was having trouble balancing a 60" fan. Tried moving weights around and just couldn't find a good starting point to add weights. This tool will help you find what blades weight needs to be added and you can run the test procedure a second time after adding weights to really get it good. Also just using the wobble check to move the weights back and forth on a blade to find the sweet spot will help you find the perfect spot. Took a little time to get the feel of what it can do and it really lets you measure your progress . My fan really had a heavy spot so it finally took weights on three of the five blades in different places to get it good. One other thing I found it better to switch the camera mode on my phone so I could look down at the screen instead of standing with my phone over my head and looking up at the fan.
