Useful But Not Great

I have 3 bathrooms getting a full upgrade-including new flooring, tile tub surround, paint, and counters. I also have 2 other rooms and a hallway needing paint and flooring. This is a handy way to label and store my dimensions for each, and I appreciate the estimated square footage. I like the options for doors and windows for paint calculations. The paint coverage has a default listed but can be changed. (Beware, it calculates based on one coat of paint.) I haven't tried any other apps yet, but will do that this week.

I have had some issues with this app. 1)For one thing, it asks for the price of the flooring and tile, but doesn't actually seem to bring the final cost into the saved listing.
2)It also randomly closes when I click "calculate", but at least it doesn't crash my phone.
3)It doesn't have a way to enter the width of flooring roll which will throw off my calculations. For instance, the room is only 8.5 ft wide, but the carpet is 12 ft wide, so I will have a lot of waste, but the square footage is calculated as an exact in this app. (OK for square stick-down tiles, but not rolls)
4)It asks for tile dimensions, but doesn't tell how many of them I need, it just re-states the square footage measure. Why ask if it won't calculate it?
5)A minor thing, but it keeps defaulting back to metric. Needs a way to choose and lock into metric or Imperial.

don't waste your money

there are no helpful instructions granted it is a basic app but you'd be better off buying a book
