The world's most popular cooling app — Danfoss Refrigerant Slider — has crossed a remarkable milestone: one million downloads. But the Danfoss Cooling mobile app team is just getting started.
The team behind Refrigerant Slider has worked hard to make the app as useful and elegant as possible; and the response from cooling professionals has been overwhelmingly positive. The app, which is primarily geared towards refrigeration installers, passed one million downloads in late November. While this is an important milestone, there's also a cherry on top: Refrigerant Slider maintains a stellar 4.5 average star rating and has received numerous glowing reviews on the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
The feedback is important, because it means that the app is providing something that our business partners and customers find incredibly valuable. And the conversation is ongoing—the app team is constantly reviewing the comments that is left on message boards, social media channels, app store pages, and a dedicated email inbox.
The excitement about Refrigerant Slider's success is rippling throughout the company. Jens Andersen, Application Development Specialist, summed up the sentiment with this statement:
"It's exciting for us to see our customers' response to Refrigerant Slider, as well as our other CoolApps. Our mission is to make it as easy as possible for them to do their jobs and support them in any way we can, and it's moments like these that let us know that we're reaching that goal."
Refrigerant Slider calculates the relationship between pressure and temperature for more than 80 different refrigerants and includes information about each refrigerant’s Global Warming Potential (GWP). This information is key for installers setting up or servicing a refrigeration system. But users also include teachers at universities, product developers, and other cooling and refrigeration professionals.
The app team is already back at work, making further improvements to the app and planning how to introduce it to even more users. In fact, they just released version 4.0.4, which adds the following features:
Added new refrigerants – R455A + R458A
Users can now switch between the IPCC AR4 and AR5 methods of calculating GWP
User can now perform transcritical calculations on CO2
Refrigerant Slider is part of the Danfoss CoolApps Toolbox, a collection of digital tools designed to support cooling industry professionals.
