[VCC] Vaping Community E-Liquid Calculator BETA Released

We are now on BETA v1.0 :tada:

Unfortunately the BETA is not where I want it to be but due to the way the ALPHA version was working, I needed to push BETA as soon as possible as I cannot work on both at the same time, the old one was pushing the wrong data to the DB which was causing me a headache :dizzy_face:

Please note: Some of the old features will be missing

Thanks! I tried my best to get it to be compatible over as many devices as I could without actually owning any of them, which was difficult :sweat_smile:
