Also - check out my other apps if you haven't already.
Robust and full featured
There are other calculators out there including free and online but this one is very convenient and full-featured. Exploration is easy - looking up the effects of ingredients and reverse look up based on effect. I especially like the ability to create combinations yourself - and excellent UI makes it very easy.
And if you’re willing to put in the effort to create your inventory in the app it pays off in the ability to make money/alchemy skill/speech skill. Once the inventory is entered the app shows a list of potions you can make sorted by price. Once you make the potion you can subtract each ingredient from your inventory with one touch.
I would love to see more info about ingredients - where to find large quantities in Skyrim, what they look like in the environment. But even without that information this is an excellent app
Great App For Both Leveling and Using Alchemy!
I've used this app for a number of characters now, on all three platforms (PC, Xbox, and PS3). It is truly awesome, especially for leveling your Alchemy skill. It is also very convenient when gathering ingredients to make potions/poisons for specific effects. It works very well, and has a number of features beyond what I normally use. It is my favorite Skyrim app. I highly recommend it to anyone who plays Skyrim and uses Alchemy. I only wish there was a similar app for Oblivion, though I certainly understand why no one has created one or such an old game. Particularly when there are so many Alchemy calculators online for Oblivion. Still, it's incredibly convenient to have such an app available on the iPad, rather than to have to go online. Kudos to the author - great job!
Not worth the money.
I don't think it's worth buying, seeing as there are much better programs/calculators online. If you (tediously) enter in the ingredients you have in your inventory, it will still show all of them when you go to the calculator or planner section. Not to mention all the ingredient values are automatically at 1 when you use the app for the first time, you'll have to change them all to zero if you don't have the ingredient. You also have to manually change the values -1 unless you are doing the alchemy specifically for money, which I do not. I simply want to find the characteristics of every ingredient. Then focus on money. I suppose this would be a great app if you already know every characteristic of every item and hoard your ingredients for a long time then binge on alchemy usage. Otherwise, I'd suggest using an online calculator or looking the ingredients up on the Skyrim Wiki.
