    As an engineering electronics technician, I work with 60-100kw inverter systems for a living. After reviewing the relevant information related to my job, I can tell this is going to be one of my most valuable tools for the electrician aspects of my job. Thanks for finally porting this to IOS. IPhone 7 plus works great and easy to navigate to the needed information. Great port!
  • Close but....

    I’ve been waiting for this app for a long time but the very first calculation that I tried ended up with an answer that was 2 decimal points off. I tried to calculate amps when I know watts, voltage, and power factor. The app gave me an answer of 738 amps when it should have been 7.38 amps.
  • Plan Review, Inspections, Field, Must Have

    By Inspector-Gadget
    This is awesome. I constantly use my iPhone for Plan Review and Inspections; however, if you are an electrician in the field this is extremely valuable as well. The advertising does not cover anywhere near all the tables and calculators this app contains. T250.122, T250.66, chapter 9 tables, conduit and box fill tables and calculators, motor and transformer calculators. It has all of your outlet configurations, all the NEMA classifications, voltage drop calculator, etc, etc, etc. For the past several years I have been using several other app, which will no longer work under the next iOS! Shoutout to the developer; thank you for keeping the electrical industry alive on the iPhone! Suggestion; if you could also add a Fire Pump calculator that would be awesome!
  • Doesnt work

    After reading these reviews, I was hesitant. I went to the Uglys site and was reasssured by their forthright explanation of the changes made to the app and they confirmed that it was a one time payment. OK, perhaps all the prior reviews are just bad experiences. Purchased app. Installed, and the app gave a brief tutorial on how to navigate through it. It then crashed. Now it doesnt work at all. Shows splash screen for a moment then quits. I guess "I hate it" for 1 star is a little harsh, as opposed to "don't like", but for $13, it better do more than nothing. I have requested a refund from the app store. I hope the app developer is paying attention to these reviews.
  • Poor customer service

    Purchased the app and once my trial period expired it said that I had to pay another 10 bucks. Tried emailing support and that's been about a month ago and still no word from them
  • Total crap ripoff

    By trickysparky
    I bought the app for $9.99 3 weeks ago. Now it says I have to subscribe for another $9.99. Not gonna happen. If you want to get screwed out of your money, go ahead and download this app.
  • Major Glitch

    By DysthymicDolt
    After I received the email saying that the subscription plan was dropped and that you could purchase the app once and "own it forever," I figured I'd go ahead and buy it. Well, here I am, 10 days after my purchase and when I open the app I'm greeted with the message that my trial period has ended and that I need to purchase a subscription to unlock the content. Seriously?!

  • A step in the right direction

    They have begun updating app. Still not the most user friendly but much more improvement over initial release. Developer seems to be addressing concerns for improvement of overall app. Hopefully with continued updates, app will become the UGLY'S that I've trusted and have gone to for over 20 years.
