The API will be open, so anyone with developer skills can write their own app. I'm just trained in Windows development, so making a Win App is ideal for me

Perhaps a mobile version of the site, though, might do in the interim? I'll guage demand based on people's responses here.

Thanks!
Sounds great!

I use the AA app 99.9% of the time and that would be my vote.

I didn't know they had one out, but windows 7 is the best OS yet from Bill & Co IMHO/E.

Cool, well I can probably have this up and running by the weekend in a basic form. If any of you are interested in beta testing, let me know by way of a private message or by adding a note in this thread.

I'd be interested to see what you come up with. Adding fields to track levels in a planted tank would be nice too. CO2, nitrate, phosphates, etc..

Can you give me a hint what that might look like? For example what would the inputs look like for the field 'track levels'?

Also, what metrics would be useful to have for saltwater aquariums? Any ideas?

OK, tonight I added equipment lists (with maintenance and replacement reminders), water quality tracking with graphic histories, tank notes and tomorrow I will be adding a photo manager and livestock list.

Basic service for now but will add more features if you request them.

Just spoke to a friend of mine who is an Android developer and he will write me an app to connect to the site.

Cool!
