Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Workdays for the iPhone is the essential date calculator for any working professional. Workdays allows you to quickly calculate the number of workdays, business days or calendar days (or a combination of the three) before or after a given date. It is simple to use and allows you to calculate multiple dates on a single screen. You can also email the results of your date calculations.
Here are a few examples of how you can use Workdays: If you are preparing a proposal that must be submitted 20 business days prior to July 15 and you want to figure out what day the proposal is actually due, you can use Workdays to quickly find the answer: Simply enter July 15 as the start date, and enter 20 workdays into the field. You can also enable the “Use Federal Holidays” switch to treat July 4 (Independence Day) and a holiday and exclude it from the calculation.
Because the observance of legal holidays varies from place to place, you can also enter your own “Custom Holidays,” such as the day after Christmas, and Workdays will treat the custom date as a holiday. Dates can also be calculated in sequence (e.g. 30 calendar days from A, 10 workdays from B, and 5 calendar days from C.)
Workdays for iPhone provides a quick and efficient way to calculate business days and deadlines without having to count by hand on a paper calendar.
What's New in Version 2.0
Updated for iOS 4.0
New Date-to-Date Mode
Improved user interface and graphics
Version 2.0 is Great
The best date calculator available for the iPhone. The new version adds some great features, including the "date to date" mode which calculates the number of workdays, calendar days, weekend days, holidays,, etc., between two dates.
Usability could be improved
This seems to be the best app of its kind. However, usability and user intuitiveness could use some significant improvements.
Wolfram alpha can do this & way more
This app works. That said, it requires more set up to get to the same info that wolfram alpha can provide with less set up time, and wolfram does so much more for the same price! I didn't even think to try wolfram for this until after I bought workdays-that was silly of me.
This app would be better if one could save "end" dates so one could quickly see how many work days remain until that date. That would make this app helpful for projects on deadline and for school semester planning!
