Challenge #175: Tire Size Calculator

Hey @lmorrell 

 

Thanks for pointing out how to export the chained app.

 

I ended up organizing the needed files inside a Files folder. Let me know if it works please.

Fun challenge, and great practice. My solution is pretty similar to @NicoleJohnson's.

OK, this works but I'm sure my method was all wrong.  I've used the Interface tools a bunch but not for chaining apps, so this challenge was both illuminating and frustrating.

 

Edit: Now that I've looked at @NicoleJohnson's solution I'm feeling a lot better about my work.  Path varies but the hand-off between apps was similar.

Hi @JORGE4900 

 

Great work! Happy to say that I'm able to download and run your app with everything packaged inside the .yxzp

No idea how to create one app that handles this input, but here's my template you can cut in three parts and use sequentially.

Never actually made a chained app before. Yay for weekly challenges that introduce you to all these topics.

See attached for my app!

 

One weird thing I noticed-- try running the app selecting 152.4 in the first drop down. There is clearly a record with that point, it shows up in the summery tool, but filtering on that exact value does not yield results. Anyone know why?
