    As a (serious) vaper, and DIY enthusiast I’ve been searching for apps that can do what I want to (do it well and do it easily), but I have not been able to get anything that fully meets my needs… So, I started to do my stuff in Excel. This soon evolved to an Access database. But being stuck to a computer is a problem, so I started to develop bits and pieces in Apps for my smartphone. I have now comped all the different pieces into a single app – VaporSuite.

    My goal is to have the ULTIMATE tools for DIY coil-builders and juice-makers, as well as help vapors to keep track of their consumables and vaping expenses.

    The app is just about ready for testing. I am just busy with some final cleanup and my own vigorous testing, but it should be ready for external testing in a couple of days. I am looking for people that will be willing to help me with beta testing.

    My requirements for beta testers are:
    • Have an Android Smartphone (version is not important).
    • Regularly design and make your own coils.
    • Design your own recipes and make your own juice. (Doesn’t have to do both coils and juice, but it will be beneficial.)
    • Will do vigorous testing and report back on any crashes, funnies and questionable results.
    • Give feedback on what they like and don’t like, and suggestions for improvements.
    • Willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement – valid until the app is released publicly.
    Anyone interested in (or willing to do) testing can contact me here via pm. Please give a bit of information about yourself and why you would be a suitable beta tester. I will send you a questionnaire and make a final decision in a couple of days.

    In the next couple of posts, I will give a short description of the app, the different modules, and some of the features.

    VaporSuite_0_MainScreen.png

    VaporSuite main screen: gives access to the 5 different modules:
    • Juice Recipes
    • Coil Design
    • Journal
    • Ohm’s Law
    • Vaping Achievements (shown on the main screen). This module keeps track of the motivational info: days smoke free (or days vaping), cigarettes eliminated, cost savings, etc. Makes provision for completely quit smoking, or reduced smoking.

    General Features of the VaporSuite app:
    • Live calculations throughout – i.e. no need to ever click “calculate” to see the results.
    • Three-way data entry for often-changed data: number input, increment/decrement, and slider.
    • Full CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) functionality for all data tables with easy access to each.
    • Most items can be set as favorite or not, enabling all lists to be rapidly changed to show all items or only favorites.
    • Automatic backup at exit, including user selectable copy of backups to Dropbox.
    • International - User selectable currency symbol, date and time formats.
    • Notes can be added for just about everything. Note boxes expands to always show all the notes entered.
    • Help for every screen (under development).
    • Video tutorials (under development).
    • First development is for Android devices. iPhone app may be developed after that (if allowed by Apple).
    • User Interface is designed specifically for phones (smaller devices). It will work on tablets, but may not look as nice as on phones!

    Not exactly a solution for the mainstream cell phone user.

    I would like to port the app to iPhone as well (after development on Android has been completed), but I believe that Apple is not allowing any vaping related apps on the iStore. I Will look deeper into this when the time is right.

    Good choice of text and background colors, easy on the eyes.
