Brainstorming features for upcoming iOS app

I'm in the midst of creating an iOS app (just iOS for now, android perhaps later) that does basic things like you've seen in most fertilizer calculators scattered all over the internet but more streamlined and friendlier UI. But I'd like to really set my app apart from the crowd. That's where you guys come in...

I wanted to give planted tank enthusiasts a chance for input. So, what types of features would you like to see? What types of things could be done better? What would make you really want to use an app like this? What makes you say I really I had an app that did XYX?

Basic things I've got in place:
Calculators for dosing dry fertilizers directly, mixing up a solution first and dosing from that, and reaching a target ppm. Also the ability to save any of the above for easy reference. CO2 concentration table based on kh/ph. That's for starters. I have lots of ideas, but I want to hear yours...

Sounds awesome!

Im not sure if you can do it but I would love to see PAR readings for the most common lighting brands used in the hobby.

Dry & liquid fertz dosing calculator on my IOS would be nice to have!

Substrate calculator would be nice also

Let us know when its available for download
