I'm always interested in making things easier for myself. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this item:

It comes with test strips that a phone is supposed to read. People have been reading bad API test strips since they were invented.

I'm not being snarky with you OP, but seriously. If you want to use test strips, you don't need your phone to do that.

No, but I'd hope there is a simple way to save the data to a spreadsheet from the app.

Are test strips that bad?

I'm not sure if they are the same ones I used in the past (without the phone) but some pH ones I tried once had the graduations too far apart to be of use. They went like 6.2, 6.8, 7.4, 7.8. We need to know more specific than that. 6.8, 7, 7.2, 7.4, 7.6, 7.8 etc

I would make sure you aren't running into that before you spend the money.
