    OK, other than V-Planner and Multideco, what's out there that does as good a job or better?

    The MD schedules and gas consumption predictions approximately match what I use. I need to use "Kentucky windage" to compensate for gas heating when I mix, but I'm used to that.

    Price is a factor to some degree, but it's not a controlling factor within reason.

    If I need tables, I usually print them with MV-Plan.
    Baltic Blender has temperature compensation for mixing gas. It works quite well.

    Subsurface is my go to for dive planning.

    PastoDeco, for Android, is also good.

    I use iDeco Pro on the phone, has all the usual dive planning suspects (GF, VPM, CCR and trimix) as well as a pretty sweet blending app.

    I'm glad people brought up Android, since I forgot to mention it was important! Anything else integrated out there or are people using two apps, one for planning and one for blending?

    Tagging for interest. I recently switched to Android as a precaution against arrest for burning Apple headquarters to the ground, and I need to replace some apps.

    My favorite on my iPhone were Baltic and Baltic Blender.
