Android app please!
Android app please!
FX2 formula on the website omits the desensitiser (although this is indirectly mentioned).
(will wait for Android)
Link does not work on my iPhone. ;-)
I got it on my Iphone. Works well. Now to steal recipes off the internet and load up my app. Nothing beats home cookin'.
I started to mix my own chemistry and this is precisely the app that I was looking for. Thanks!

Here's a source for darkroom recipes I like.
Just got it--very cool. I think it would be cool if we could share formula files. I just tried creating one and exporting it. They have .drf extensions, so I think we just need to get Sean to add the file type to the attachment list. You just need to email the formula to yourself and open it up on your device to add it to your database.
I'm not so much interested in the formulas in the database as being able to add my own and then use the calculator to recalculate the formulas for different volumes of solution. To put in your own citric acid stop, for instance, you could pick any stop, change all the ingredients and amounts and the title, and save it to your favorites, and it will be added without changing the formula already there. That's how the MassiveDev app works as well--you can change everything in the processing sequence for a certain film/dev combination and update the title, save it in your favorites, and then use that without losing the info in the database.
I agree with David, the ability to copy and modify into a personal database will be useful. Regarding the quantities calculator, I think this is brilliant. I have one small issue with it though. On several of the two-part formulations I checked, Pyrocat HD, Rolo Pyro, and Kodak D-85b (in Lith/Ortho), the quantity input is used as the total of A+B rather than the total of the two components separately.
I know when I want to make a two-parter, I want the quantities specified for the total of each solution - not the total when mixed. It can make for some odd numbers... e.g. Rollo Pyro: Quantity set to 1000ml, part A start with 266.67 ml of water topping up total volume to 333.33 ml after adding chems, Part B starts with 633.33 ml before mixing in the Sodium Metaborate, for a total of 1000 ml at the end.
Perhaps the app's programmer could make either a modification to allow either setting whether we want an A+B total volume (as it currently stands) or an A, B volume (each, not mixed) as two part formulas are usually presented.
