Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This application will help the user calculate sale prices on individual items by allowing the user to enter the original price, percent discount, and optionally an additional "out-the-door" discount (a discount applied AFTER the original discount has been calculated).
Settings include the option to enable/disable sound, use the "Additional Savings" field, use small or large sets of picker values for percent savings, or even opt to use a keypad to enter percent savings instead of the pickers.
Tax rates can also be applied (as an option in the Settings), so you know what the final price will be. Also, you can enter the tax rate specific to your area.
What's New in Version 1.3
The selectors for "Percent Savings" and "Additional Savings", when used, weren't being animated on the screen. This appears to be an issue with iPhone 4.0, and has now been corrected (i.e. worked-around) in my code.
Thank you for your support!
It works, but...
It's a great idea, but the way this is set up, the calculator app is faster. Showing the full keyboard instead of the number pad is cumbersome in this situation. And why the picker for the discount? The number pad would be faster there as well. The ability to use a dollar amount instead of a percent for the additional discount would be helpful. And as long as I'm dreaming, a tax value that uses GPS to adjust itself would be totally awesome! But this app has not been updated in over two years, so I won't hold my breath. I guess I'll mourn the waste of 99 cents and keep using the free app I was hoping to replace.
This app has everything you need to figure out your discounts. Also fixed a bug immediately with an update and now it works flawlessly. Thank you for the great comma and follow up.
