The Little Helper series is designed to make your life easier. People working in the Oilfield have to make crunch decisions in a timely manner often with external pressures and very little sleep. The Little Helper's are designed to make your life that bit easier by allowing you to analyze a situation and perform complex calculations on your iPhone.
The Little Helper series consists of four main applications, The Logger's Little Helper, The Geologist's Little Helper, The Company Man's Little Helper and The Driller's Little Helper.
There are two versions for each application, one for the international oilfield which utilizes both SI and imperial units and one for the USA which uses imperial units exclusively.
They all have built in checks and limits to validate user input, prevent typo's and preclude erroneous answers from being returned. The checks and error message setup is such that you will not be prevented from working with values outside the built in limits, rather a warning pops
up to let you know the values in question are either very high or very low for a given situation. However, where the answer makes no sense at all you will be prompted to check the input. You can leave the applications, make a phone call, find a restaurant, play a game, whatever it happens
to be then come back to the Little Helper and any data that you had entered will still be there. You can take a screen shot of the content by depressing the home and power button, this image will then be saved to your photo gallery and from here you can transfer it, email it or print it with a number of free Apps available at iTunes. Once you are done with a page you can shake the phone and the page will reset.
For any given page in any App the analysis is initially performed after the last input has been entered, if you need to go back in and change up the values there is a calculate button on the bottom of the page which will also perform the calculations.
