Just looking for feedback and suggestions.
Anyway, I know there are biologists and chemists here. I need your criticisms on this program/app and suggestions on what I could do next.
I'd like to take a look at it.
The company I work for blends different chemicals together to manufacture the products we sell. It looks like I might have some use for it and even more, my R&D chemists might get a kick out of it.
We'd offer feedback for sure. Hit me up.
Here's a screenshot of the desktop version.
Just an FYI, you should crop out your task bar when uploading screenshot*. We don't need to see your Spotify and what if you had some porn on there or something....
*ABE: wait, did you already change the image file?
ABE2: we don't have Windows 8, is that a problem?

The one in the screenshot will work with anything windows from xp to now. How do I know? Because all our machines in the lab still run on xp.
Yeah, we use XP.
Uploading the virus onto my online storage right now. Will pm you a link when it's done.
Oh, well then nevermind.

I hope you realize that was a joke.
Where was the sarcasm font!?

Sorry man, that's just the computer that the IT guy at work handed to me when I started.
Our R&D chemists will be on similar machines.

Ok, it almost killed me, but I think I got it. With older machines, I have to downgrade everything to 3.5. Unfortunately, many of the codes I wrote before were for .net 4.5, so they weren't compatible. I had to rewrite some of the subroutines. There was one instance where under 4.5 it took 2 lines of code but after I reverted to 3.5 I had to rewrite it and it took 60 lines!
Dang, that sucks. I hope I represent a significant portion of your potential users, such that you're not wasting your time on this.

The dropbox link was a 404 error.
Use that appbox one instead.

Alrighty, I've got it and it runs!
It looks like I won't be able to really get into it until tomorrow afternoon, though.
