It doesn't matter if you are currently in the market for a gemstone or diamond or you just have some at home that you'd like more information on, we've got an app that will help you determine the weight and thickness of them. The Carats app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is a great way to calculate the carats of a particular stone. The app takes into account 12 different facet styles and 86 gemstone types. The app estimates the type, facet style, size, and gravity in order to provide the weight and thickness.
Thanks to the Carats app there is no need to be a professional jeweler in order to calculate the weight and thickness of diamonds and gemstones. After you perform your calculations you can also send it and the conversions by email. You may need to send it to your significant other, a jeweler, your insurance company, or even a copy to yourself. The app automatically will save all the inputs you make so your calculations aren't lost, and it is a universal offering that will work across all your devices. The app supports iOS 5 and 6 and Retina Display.
In its latest update there were a few minor bug fixes to provide smoother performance. The app has 4.5 out of five stars from users who seem satisfied with the offering and find it very useful and simple.
The Tools and Features
Even though the Carats app is performing some pretty detailed calculations you will find that using the app is a very simple process. Calculations are determined extremely fast and there is no need for any math on your part. The carat size is based upon the girdle width, girdle length, facet style, and stone type. The carat weight is shown in points, grams, carats, and milligrams. The gauge thickness converter features a distance converter that converts from inches to centimeters and vice versa. The area converter converts from square centimeters to square inches and vice versa. As an added bonus this app is truly flexible since it doesn’t require an Internet connection.
The user interface feels a bit clunky and dull but really for what this app sets out to do it's perfectly fine. Flashy graphics and sounds aren't really the focus here. Just make your inputs and you can then email it right from within the app or reset and start again.
