Great Reference Tool
For me this app has been a great tool for estimating projects and rates. Other reviews gave this app a bad score mainly due to the NaN (which I have never encountered, but the developer explains how to avoid it), the estimates it provides, it the lack if a huge library of professions to choose from. I think those folks didn't really understand who this app was actually designed for. As for the estimates, it's just that. Estimates. If the app says you should charge $20 an hour but you feel like your worth $50 then charge $50. The app only estimates what you need to cover your expenses and make a 30% profit, just likes it says it will. If you keep a level head then you will find this app does exactly what it says it will do...
An Unfortunate Purchase
I bought this because I needed help coming up with a good framework for charging my clients. After my purchase I try this app out, register for it, and attempt to calculate an hourly rate, then a project after putting all my info in. It comes back with a "NaN" error, and absolutely anything I do, nothing will work. I see that the developer's are aware of this, but this does NOT help me what-so-ever. I understand you have previous customers that this app has helped, and may still work for some, however since this is my first experience, a "We're working on fixing this soon" does not help me at all. I am sorry, but no. That does not work for me. I wish I could give 0 stars!
Every designer should have this
In a list of apps for new designers to download, this should be in the top 10! Every time I've used this as a new designer, I've cross referenced and realized that I am right at what I should be charging. It even takes into account what I have to pay for as a freelancer and what state I live in. It's REALLY helpful and takes a LOT of stress out of coming up with a price for my clients!
