Consider Blackjack risk Manager. I am not sure if it is still supported.

"Winner Blackjack" on the Apple App Store is a good software for playing or practicing blackjack, basic strategy and card counting.

Casino Verite is the simulator, which it sounds like you downloaded.

CVData and CVCX are the simulator packages, which are what you want. I recently purchased them and while powerful, they are not very user-friendly, IMO. I am still getting the hang of it, but it came in useful on my recent Vegas trip. Some questions I wanted to answer were "what is the change in EV between these two bet spreads on the same game" and "is this weak 1-4 spread still positive or just breakeven on a specific DD game" and it's great at answering those questions. I used my exact counting system (which is non-standard) with my exact bet spreads and index numbers. I haven't yet found something it can't do, but I'm sure there are more advanced counters who have a long list of feature requests :).

is there some sort of user manual included when you purchase, or are you just left to figure out all of the features on your own? Thanks for your response.

Yes, it ships with 3 user manuals, which I haven't read yet, lol. So perhaps my characterization as "not user-friendly" was not fair, but in my experience, most well-written and usable software doesn't need a comprehensive manual. But, that's just my opinion. From my brief skim through the manuals they seem to have good descriptions of how to use the software for all the supported tasks.
