Precision Laboratories has released an update to its Mix Tank app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The Mix Tank app, launched in March of this year, is the first of its kind to determine the proper mixing sequence for pesticides, adjuvants and foliar nutrition products to help avoid tank mixing problems.
Version 1.1 of the Mix Tank app, available as a free download on the App Store, includes an entirely new home screen user interface, allowing users easy access to the app's primary functions. Also included in the update is an easier way for users to share the app with others, and an optional email signup to receive app-specific updates before they're released publicly.
"Our first update to the Mix Tank app was based on the great feedback we continue to receive, said Jim Reiss, vice president of agricultural chemistries at Precision Laboratories. "Users expressed that our mixing sequence videos, as well as where and how to submit missing crop protection products, should be more easily accessible. We've responded to their feedback and think they'll enjoy this update.
Since the Mix Tank app launched, more than 150 crop protection products have been added to the database, putting the total at over 900 products.
"Before the app officially launched, our team quickly realized that the app was no longer ours, said Reiss. "The Mix Tank app is for the users and we'll continue to make it a valuable tool they can rely on to avoid tank mixing problems.
The Mix Tank app is available as a free download on Apple's App Store. Additionally, an online version of the Mix Tank app is located at www.mixtankapp.com and can be accessed from a computer with an internet connection.
