Ratings and Reviews

Hardly industry leading


Since all of the 5 star reviews for this app are obviously fake, I thought I would be the first to give a “real” review. The good... The visual representation of the handrail is nice as it lets you see exactly what you are entering, but personally I don’t like the number input method. It is intuitive, well laid out and easy to use. The not so good...Only gives you the centers of the balusters...only gives you two types of handrail options... maximum spacing is limited to 12”....200” is the maximum run which is somewhat limiting........1/16” is the smallest increment you can use which is useless if you want to cut a pile of fillets.... $7.99? Seriously? There are much better baluster apps out there at a fraction of the cost. On its own I would give this app 2 or 3 stars because it is a bit limited but since the developer posted a bunch of bogus reviews to make it look better than it really is, I figured I would give it one star.

Excellent app


Perfect for my every day use. Calculations give me everything I need in one easy to use app. Accurate results and saves me from jotting things down on paper.

Absolutely great


This app has been very helpful in quickly figuring out my stair balusters. Very accurate...highly recommended
