Price: $5.99 Score: 9/10 By Michael Essany
Unfortunately, we inhabit a world where complex calculations are frequently required for folks who, shall we say, are less than mathematical scholars. For this reason, our standard built-in smartphone calculators have proven horrifically inadequate for the needs of many. And while there are plenty of applications that offer a variety of advanced calculation functionality, Appitudez Financial Calculators – Deluxe Edition from Appitudez Inc., is gaining a relatively inexpensive leg up on the competition.
If you just need a little help with your multiplication tables, this app may be a bit too advanced or sophisticated for your needs. But if you’re looking for full amortization schedules and the option to save complex calculations and even email them to yourself, this app is a must have. Particularly valuable for home buyers or mortgage lenders, this app gives you an on-the-go financial tool capable of making your life a lot easier and, most importantly, free of the common errors of our mental or pen-and-paper calculations. There are 11 calculators in all, including calculators for fixed and variable rate mortgages, credit card payoff, refinance, compound interest and retirement.
Although there was little effort placed on making the application particularly visually appealing, such an app doesn’t necessarily warrant a high-gloss finish. Moreover, the app is easy enough to use and diverse enough in its utilities to warrant the $5.99 price tag. And Appitudez Financial Calculators Deluxe Edition comes packed with a host of features you’re unlikely to find in most standard calculation apps.
- Quickly and efficiently compare loan options.
- Save and email results.
- Loan Calculations include full amortization schedules.
- Savings and Retirement Calculations include accumulation schedules.
- Records previously entered values.
In general, financial applications don’t generate much excitement because they tend to inform us how much we owe or plan to spend. But those situations call for reliable calculators that walk us through the cumbersome processes that we’ve all been through before and likely will endure again. For this reason, it’s wise and well worth the download to have Appitudez Financial Calculators Deluxe Edition with you when you need it.
Appitudez Financial Calculator requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch.
