With a background as an electrical engineer, I don't actually need an app to work out loads, but potentially I can see it's value to others as it's a fairly frequent question on this forum, so well done on that score.
There are a couple of points that confuse me with the app, why do users need any kind of 'account', and why would you need internet access to use app? The number crunching to obtain values or conversions is very basic arithmetic indeed that could be done internally, neither is internal data storage of personal set ups likely to be a problem, and for a great many campsites where this app would be useful, there is no or very poor mobile signal coverage and therefore no internet access, does this render app unusable in those circumstances?
My cynical nature makes me wonder are you data harvesting with your account/internet access requirement, but for what possible legitimate use is certainly beyond me. Personally I avoid apps that require sign ups/interconnectivity when I can see no need/benefit from it. Every unnecessary internet link is just another weakness in protecting the security of your phone and personal data.
Sorry if I'm potentially erroneously reading anything 'sinister' into a legitimate need or use, but it's far from clear to me why! Maybe more clarity in your app description would allay concerns.
