Ratings and Reviews
I used to use Soap Calc before they disengaged the free mode and forced you to buy the Soapcalc Pro. But I had already wrote all my recipes down. Now that i’ve moved to a different country, i needed to change some things around, and needed a calc to calculate my lye to water conc., bc you don’t want to play around guessing the lye/water info. So i read the reviews, bought the app, and it’s a beautiful thing. VERY easy to use, and it’s straight to the point with everything the old app i used to use had. This app is BEAST!!!! Worth every 1.99!!! A soapers dream Soap Calc!! Thank you so much app developer!!! You are the best!!!
It’s OK, but very annoying to edit recipes
Been using a little under a year now. It works, does the job, my recipes are turning out just fine. I like being able to see the properties of my recipes, it gives a range which is cool. I have this downloaded on my phone. It’s quite annoying trying to put notes in my recipes!!! I have quite long notes and descriptions and this happens every time I need to make an adjustment or edit the name/notes of the recipe. I find where I want to make an edit somewhere in the middle of my notes... I click that area, then the screen will automatically scroll all the way to the bottom and then I lose the cursor in my screens view, I have to scroll back up to find the area I was wanting to make the edit. And sometimes I am amble to make that edit... but sometimes I press another area on the text and it scrolls all the way back to the bottom and I have to repeat the whole darn process again until I’m able to see my cursor while I’m typing. I hope this makes sense in some way. This minor annoyance is actually why I’m trying out other apps now. This annoyance is very time consuming when trying to make/edit recipes. I dealt with it for a while, and now I’m just over it.
So far I like it.
I feel like my feed back is somewhat limited in value since I just began CP soap making. With that out of the way, I have enjoyed this app as it helps me better understand how the characteristics of each oil effects my recipient. It has caused me to learn more about the acids and the qualities of soap in general.
I do have some enhancements I would like to request.
1) It would be handy to view the qualities of each oil in isolation. For example, what values does Shea Butter, as a stand alone oil, have for each of the qualities and acids?
2) it would also be nice to compare 2 or more recipes side by side in a table format. Starting with ingredients, followed by qualities, followed by acids. All in the same tab so you don’t have to jump from tab to tab. This would also be handy to compare the quality and acids of specific oils (see 1)
I do also wonder where the values for the soap qualities come from? Qualities like conditioning and creaminess, what is the approach that is used to assign a number to that value for each oil?
All in all, I think this is a very handy tool, and I have yet to explore the record keeping functions.
