Great - one small gritch
Love this app and use it a lot. 4 1/2 stars!
I really truly wish I could turn OFF the feature to automatically check for metal price updates. It drains my iPhone battery fairly quickly. Yes, in iPhone Settings there is a way to turn this off. However as soon as I close out of the Settings section, the app turns this feature back on. Immediately. If anyone has succeeded in turning this off I'd love to know abt it.
Great App for Calculations
Wonderful application for calculations. However, I find that the list of stones is much less than half complete with an up to date list of stones. When a common stone like amethyst is not on a list of purple stones, there needs to be some updating done. Very useful though, for weights and conversions and sizes. I will be using it regularly.
I use this app all the time to help me calculate ring blank length and determine gauge sizes. IT's very helpful.
