Marcus Roskosch, independent software developer and founder of Creating Your App, just released his electronic engineering app, Electronic Toolbox Pro for iPhone, iPod and iPad. Since introduction of Electronic Toolbox in 2009 this App has grown to the electronics reference App for professionals, hobbyists or students on i-Devices.
One customer recently wrote "I would have bought an iPhone just so I could use this App, it's an essential purchase if you are in electronics, it's saved me DAYS of time!"
"My App was continuously 5-Star rated since the beginning and I was amazed about the great success of my App and the huge user community who helped me to add more and more functionality to my App over the time", Marcus said.
Often more than once per month, Marcus sent out an Update with additional features and databases. Mid 2011, after more than 60 updates, Marcus decided to completely rewrite his App. After 8 months of development time, the new Version, which is now called Electronic Toolbox Pro, has just been released. Besides offering all the tools and databases of its predecessors, Electronic Toolbox Pro offers many innovations such as:
- Complete revised and redesigned user interface including many possibilities to customize the App according personal requirements
- Better Retina Display support especially for the iPad 3 by introducing vector images
- A Project tool to maintain, manage, print and share electronic circuit projects
- Database update over the air for better and quicker Database updates
- Formulas and background information throughout the whole App for novices and students
Although this App mainly focuses on US Users as this is the biggest user group, the App now supports sixteen different languages including Chinese and Japanese.
"After several weeks of testing with many Beta Testers around the world, I am happy that this version now has been rolled out as it was a tough time to support the existing version and develop a new version at the same time", Marcus said.
About his future plans for his App, Marcus mentioned that he is already working on an Update that will contain some more tools and his plans are to continue to let this App grow by working through a long to-do list with user requests and ideas. In addition, he is currently in talks with semiconductor companies and suppliers for a tighter integration of their products into his App. Besides these projects, he has plans to create a Mac Desktop Version of Electronic Toolbox for the end of this year.
Electronic Toolbox Pro 4.00.02 is $5.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
