2.0 out of 5 stars Promising app but it has flaws in some areas! September 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you have ever done a construction project or remodeled your home you know how much work it is to estimate the amount of material you will need for the project. With the price of materials today you don't want to buy too much and waste your money nor do you want to run short of material. Running to the lumber yard wastes time and gas. You can also run out of items that you may have difficulty finding more of like a certain color of ceramic tile that is now out of stock when you need 3 extra pieces to finish the floor.

This app does all of the geometry and trigonometry for you and helps you estimate the supplies you need. Sounds simple enough but I did find an error in the triangle calculator. I entered in 12 for side b, 9 for side c and 15 for side a. The app tells me that side c should be the longest and it is not the hypotenuse of the triangle? In addition if you enter in two of the sides of the right triangle then it should calculate the other side for you using the Pythagorean Theorem and you shouldn't have to enter in the length of the third side. It is obvious that the sides of the triangle are not marked properly in the diagram.

After finding this error I did not check the math of other parts of the app but I have to tell you that my confidence in the app fell quite a bit. This was the first thing I checked and it was incorrectly marked in their triangle diagram. There are also some other minor errors listed below like spelling and the inability to enter in negative temperatures for conversion. This app has promise but it needs a thorough check to make sure that each possible answer is correct. I did not feel that I needed to invest that much time to proof an app that is trying to sell itself for $4.99.

The HandyMate PRO really has a lot of potential, but applications like these LIVE or DIE by their ease of use, descriptions, and formulas.

I don't know who would give this app a five star rating (in its current state) because taking a closer look at it reveals issues with each and every key component.

- There are countless spelling errors.

- A few of the formulas are wrong and thus so are the results.

- It is not at all user friendly.

- Requires full network permissions.

- Costs $4.99.

- Has a lot false five star reviews.

While I do like the interface, and the fact that you can change the unit system (some other reviews claimed that you can't), NONE of that matters because this program provides you with INCORRECT information.

When the developer fixes all the major problems HandyMate PRO has, I may give it a decent review. Until that time, I don't want to bother - it is obvious the developer did not.

Side note: For more information and some of the errors, check the comments where one of the developers asked me for proof.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good concept - wrong calculations September 5, 2012
By Sam98

Wrong calculations in the tool make it untrustworthy. Not saying they are all wrong, as I haven't tried them all and am no math wizard. But in imperial measurements, a simple calculation of a 10x10 foot floor is 100 sq feet. When I enter that I'm laying 12"x12" (1 sq foot) tiles with no gap, no room for waste it tells me I need 121 tiles. If I do this same calculation in metric. IE: 10 mm x 10 mm with 1 sq mm tiles I get the right answer, 100. I don't know what imperial system they are using but apparently 12 inches does not a foot make.

Looking at the geometry calculator, I'm not good at geometry, but even I can tell which side of a scalene triangle is longer just by looking at it. Yes, they made a mistake, but these things plus the spelling errors tells me this is a sloppy tool and therefore not much use as is. It's a shame because it could be very useful, if you could trust it.

It works on my Kindle Fire but the diagrams are sometimes too small to read. I'm not sure what the Rain Calculator is for as you can only put in whether it was sunny or raining for a given day. I like math the calculator, but I wouldn't pay $4.99 for it.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's ok for what it does... September 5, 2012
By J. Webb
Verified Purchase
Just not a very polished app. Lots of spelling mistakes and a very garish calculator. Not really US friendly, especially in the paper measurement area-most of the sizes listed are European standards with no clue to actual sizes without selecting each.
It has a few neat tricks, but not worth $4.99 as is.

3.0 out of 5 stars It looks good but is troublesome September 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
I downloaded the app wondering to see if it would make my life easier for redoing the house. I am already someone of a handyman and I know how to put up drywall set tile and everything else. the measurements using this app is rather difficult it doesn't have a width setting it has length and height. I tried many settings to see if it would Adjust it still gave me the wrong amount of tile that I actually used for the job. I am sure if you figure it out it will be helpful but it is very difficult for someone who's not used only using certain amount of measurements. that is why I give it a 3 star review it is not good for the average user unless you were use already working in that type of measurement setting. also after 3 tries it couldn't even get the proper square footage of my floor.
