    I have an older thread running with a different title but wanted to start up an official thread to post updates, collect thoughts and opinions.

    "eJuice Recipes" was recently released to the iTunes store. It's a clean iOS 7 style recipe book and calculator. Version 1.0 is very basic and does not allow for PG/VG distinction. I'm currently putting the finishing touches on version 1.1 with the sole intent to include PG/VG calculations.

    Link to our app: eJuicer | GenerationFoul

    The app store submission process seems to be tricky with these types of apps. I had to steer away from the concept of this app being a calculator and focus it more as a recipe book before i could get it to pass apples app guidelines. Version 1.0 took about 2 months and a number of teaks to get approved. I'm hoping version 1.1 will go much quicker but anticipate having to make some comprimises.

    Below are a couple screenshots that show off the new PV/VG updates in the upcoming version 1.1. I look forward to your feedback and will provide updates during the submission process.

    Awesome, I'm assuming you can save your own recipes as well.

    Yes. Saving your recipes is the key focus here.

    Would love to see a Windows Phone 8.1 version
    Could be universal to coincide with Surface and Windows 8.

    Hope you will consider it. Thanks.

    Looking forward to the 1.1 release! I've been trying to find a good ejuice calculator for my iPhone and I think I just found it! Have you considered a paid version to get rid of the ads?

    Yes have considered a paid version. Waiting to build up enough potential customers before I add it in as in in app purchase. I suspect somewhere around v1.2 or v1.3 we will see that. Quite honestly the ads don't pay that we'll and I'm not willing to place ads near UI controls where people accidentally click on them.

    I'm really interested in a public recipe sharing function. I haven't seen that we'll done yet.

    All depends on how well this one does. I'm a .net developer so it wouldn't be too tough but do not posses a windows phone and with limited bandwidth, Id rather see the ios version mature first.

    All,

    I've just about completed my PG/VG addition to eJuicer Recipes iPhone app. I wanted to get some thoughts on how intuitive the attached recipe screen is.

    Also, I seem to be a bit challenged on what to do when the recipe is not possible to calculate. Currently i display an error that tells the user to check there values. Does that seem adequate?

    Save the recipe and the go back to the main list and tap the recipe name (not the info circle).

    In my new version not currently released to the apple store, i have changed the way the navigation works. you can now access the calculated results from the edit recipe screen.

    Remember, these are cell phones and many of us don't quite have the eyesight to read a 2pt font. I tried to keep the app clean and readable by showing the calculated results on a separate screen. Most other apps try to cram it all one one screen which works ... I'm just not a fan of that. I guess its easier from a coding perspective.

    Any feedback on the way the PG/VG is stored for my soon to be released version. Again, I personally wanted something simple and clean for myself. That said, many people complained about the lack of PG/VG. I'm currently adding that to the app and want to make sure it meets the needs of most :)
