    I originally designed this app because I found myself at yard sales, finding great deals on tanks but the owners had no clue on the actual size of the tank. I found myself wishing I had a pocket aquarium calculator. I installed it as a beta for a few friends devices and they convinced me to add other tank formulas and units of measure used in other countries and release it to the community. I have since been using it while designing sumps.

    So Enjoy!

    iTank Calc



    iTank Calc v 1.0 is a feature rich FREE calculator for the iPhone and iPod Touch that is used to determine the volume of an aquarium by entering a few simple measurements.

    Each calculator has been coded with the user in mind. Use it to find the volume of an existing aquarium/sump or for one you are building.

    Features
    - Easy to use user interface
    - Calculate Rectangle/Cube. Cylinder, and hexagon tanks
    - Easy touch screen keyboard
    - Each output is rounded to the nearest hundredth ie. 25.54 US gallons
    - Returns answers in U.S Gallons, UK Gallons or Liters
    - Help page with a diagram for each calculator for reference when measuring
    - In app support and suggestions email links
    - Requires IOS 4.1

    If people seem to get use out of it and I get some email feedback I will implement some additional things including:

    More tank shapes
    More features
    Graphics improvments
    Backwards Compatibility to work with previous IOS versions

    Download
    iTank Calc for iPhone and iPod touch on the iTunes App Store

    New version in store now. v 1.0.1

    Update includes:
    Minor bug fixed to autohide keyboard when Help is pressed
    Now compatible with 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 as well as 4.1
    Added Keyboard autohide to clear buttons
    Optimized coding to improve view switches while maintaining low memory usage (should switch faster and use same to do it ram)


    I am working on the bow tank calc now and it is giving me a few problems. I hope to have them sorted in the next few days. If all goes well this will be a VERY VERY accurate bow front calculator. In fact I have not seen one even online that is doing it this way which makes them less accurate.

    I wanted to give you a little sneak peek of what is coming in v1.1

    The Bow front Calculator

    Now I believe that this bow front calculator is the most accurate one of its kind. I have yet to confirm this so its not set it stone. (My formula is being sent to a mathematician and he will let me know its degree of accuracy for sure)

    BUT, what I can tell you is that all the ones I have seen online. DO NOT do it the way iTank does it. And most of them say that they are returning approximate values and rounding numbers making them inaccurate to some degree. iTank takes a different approach and returns a value that is FAR closer to the actual size of the bow front tank.

    I have tested this on a site that has a bow front calculator after entering my values was returning 100 gallons. I entered the same values in iTank and it returned 102.61 Gallons.

    After it is checked I will know for sure.

    It will still be 2 weeks or so until this is available as I still have to finish some additional updates.
    I will let you all know when it is ready for download :)
