Love the app, wish it worked elsewhere.

I love the app, for the most part it is easy to use. I just wish it worked on other platforms. I’m a PC guy and would love it if it worked in windows. Our phones are google, it would sure be nice if it worked on them. My wife’s tablet is a Kindle Fire, she would love to be able ro access it. I have the only iPad, the only device in the household that it will work on and don’t plan to replace it when it goes. I hate the idea of entering everything in here only to lose it down the road.

I have tried other apps and I’m not as happy with them. This one seems to fit the bill. If only it worker on other platforms.

One problem I am having is figuring out how to delete an item that I accidentally added in two categories. I can list it as zero, but how do I delete it?

Overall, very good

This is a great app that does what I need it to do. There is a bit of a learning curve, but I have figured out how to use most of the features. I have recorded inventory in multiple places, created my own categories and items (although it would be nice to have an icon set for user-created categories), and Use Sets feature is extremely helpful. quite robust, and for the most part, I love it!

The only problem I have had is that recently (past few months), I can’t always assign an expiration date to items in the Use Sets feature. The date wheel comes up, but the Done button is missing, so the date is not recorded. I can go into a different food, and it works. Then go back to the one that wasn’t working, and it still doesn’t work. I have re-started the app, and sometimes it fixes itself, but not always. I even rebooted my iPad, and it still didn’t always work. I don’t dare to delete and reinstall the app, as I don’t really trust the backup, and I have so much stored in the app it would take time I don’t have to re-enter everything. I try to work around this but it’s annoying when it doesn’t work the way it should.

Love this app but....

Love this app! I would like to see a category for the number of serving a can has added to the list of specifics. The freeze dried, dehydrated and canned food all have different weights to them. A better tally I would think would be in the number of servings a can holds. Weight is important too and needs to be considered as well. I know in the options you can chose either weight or servings. Both are important elements to consider. After using this app for a few years now the numbers don’t seem to change. I’ve been at 39% prepared forever it seems. I would like to see areas as to where I can get past the 39% rank. Water you can’t store a year or more for a family of say 4. There is just not enough space. What about water filtration equipment would that make a difference? Are tents & sleeping bags accounted for, clothing or other things that would make life easier in a disaster mode? Where are those categories?
