ELR website vs app?

I see there’s a nice app with the same name on android store. I’ve been using it a bit and I really like it. My phone is a galaxy A01 with 16GB of storage. This thing is total garbage and the elr website is very difficult to use with this phone as the buttons are small, I misclick stuff, it takes forever to load, will freeze for 30 seconds, unfreeze and then register all my screen taps afterwards causing it to freak out clicking stuff everywhere. It does this quite often so I’ve switched to the app for now but I’ve read there’s no affiliation between the website and the app. Like none at all? Not even a syching option for transferring recipes from one to the other and vice versa?

I need a good android tablet for mixing my ejuices. It’ll be simply for that but I don’t want some old turd. I want a decent tablet with a decent sized screen that isn’t trash. A bigger more accurate screen would make it all come together as I could then be able to easily tap the buttons and the website won’t be slow and glitchy. I’m trying to learn to mix as I just got 45 flavors with a lot more stuff on the way. I just started out so getting frustrated with my phone is not wise right now as I’ll be prone to breaking it out of anger, I know because this has happened before, so I’m looking for solutions. The app also keeps track of live inventory stock records and catalog. Any and all advice is welcome. I have no feelings so you can’t hurt them. Lol
Thanks!

Samsung Galaxy tablets are good. High-end phone without the phone. 10 inch is very nice.

I am assuming that you are currently lacking a desktop or laptop. This would make sense, as there is no logic in using a phone when sitting down to blend.

There are loads of sites for refurbished kit and I rely on them for most of what I get as they have better deals and warranties than any other. Backmarket and Giffgaff are two I use in the UK.

I’m with @JiM210 100% on this one @Surgeon1.

@Surgeon1 don’t feel bad, I’ve got a Sammie S21 Ultra, and I’d never try and mix with it, just too much of a PITA. I picked up an HP Spectre which although might be overkill, is dedicated just for my mixing, spreadsheets, labeling, and order shipping.

It works for me. I use my phone every time I mix and every time I build coils.

I use ELR, of course, Google Spreadsheet, Vape Tool Pro, PT Design and Print for a Brother Cube label maker, and the calculator app.

Our Samsung Galaxy tablet needs a screen replacement and a new charge port. It provided many years of trouble free service before it got smashed.

I know I am an old guy, but I use my phone for calls and texts. When I got my first smartphone I was most interested in call quality because…it’s a phone. All the reviews talked about features, speed and camera, and I had trouble finding reviews about call quality. Soon it will be time for me to get a new phone because my battery life is fading. I will still be interested in call quality, but will pay more attention to the camera quality.

For pretty much everything else I use my ASUS laptop, except for work I have a Microsoft Surface Pro which works fine.
