    Hi All,

    Version 2.1 went online tonight. This time, it is a standard android app update. No hassles
    Please let me know if you encounter any issues with update, or after updating.
    What's new:

    Fixed bug when the last synchronization date wasn't saved correctly.
    Fixed bug with lingering toolbar after invoking filter dialog with active selection.
    Fixed incorrect last synchronization date calculation after previous attempt failure.
    Displays correct message when zknives.com lookup fails due to unstable or invalid internet connection.
    Set default synchronization frequency to 1 week.
    Latest db snapshot as of 07/26/11.

    How to find the app on the market(if you don't have it):
    1) Search for "knife steel chart"
    2) search "pub:zviSoft"
    3) If you have barcode reader in your phone then use this QR code:



    P.S. - Not really related, but the web version of the chart now sports google +1 button. If you find the chart useful, please gimme a bump Next time you visit the online knife steel chart, click the+1 button.

    Interesting, my barcode reader picks it up and populates with the correct id, but says item not found when I try to get it. I can't seem to find it in the market either using your keyword search. Anyone else having problems? Or is it just my phone?

    awesome work Gator, thanks for the android chart. I noticed that Uddeholm AEB-L is referenced to 440B alot, but do not see it on your chart, is it anywhere else? And is there any Japanese steels competing with CPM SV's and M4's? I didn't get to go over your whole chart yet.

    I think he mentioned it having some bugs on certain phones, but I can't remember which. Well here is the link anyway, hope it works.

    Thanks

    Kalaeb, I suspect it's your phone, I've tested on 3 different ones already. One problem I saw, on HTC droid incredible, using wireless connection it would for some reason pick up an old version, as soon as I switched ot 3g connection the problem went away. PM me if the pron is still there tomorrow.

    Goodchef, never seen AEB-L listed as equivalent or similar with 440B, it's lower alloyed, cleaner, finer grained, etc... Although, I am no metallurgist, perhaps makers can answer that better.

    P.S. The bug was n application V 1.0, on HTC inspires, but it wasn't being unable to find the app on market, app was crashing after installation.

    I just came across it a few times doing research and here is one, I don't want to list the whole page so I will just snip a quote.

    "AEBL seems to be about 440B. Extremely easy to grind, in fact, I think I may have set a world record with it a few years back, over a hundred blades from bar stock to 220 grit within eight hours. Heat treat like 440C. Edge holding is best when heat treating includes a freeze cycle. Very easy to polish and buff. Very nice choice for miniatures, kitchen knives, etc. AEBL has several quirky habits in grinding that make it difficult to use on thicker or larger knives. Makes nice kitchen knives. "Hoss" uses this in his beautiful stainless Damascus and reports that it holds up very well"

    I don't use either and was not comparing qualities, just wanted to know what was in it
