Want help keeping tabs on your spending? There’s an app for that. The Ez Shopping Calculator iPhone app from Dougals Harris is a simple way to keep track of your spending before you make it to the cash register. Read our iPhone app review to find out why this app may be every couponer’s dream come true.
But it gets better. There’s also an option to enter coupon totals, so your total is completely accurate. How’s that for savings?
A few additional key features such as the ability to enter more than one of any item with a simple spin of a wheel, an editable list view where items that go back on the shelf come off your total and a clear entry or clear all option, round out the Ez Shopping Calculator iPhone app.
When it comes to keeping track of your grocery tab, this app does it all, except carry your bags.
We do have one suggestion for improving the app. An integrated bar code scanner would make getting your total even faster, and improve the app considerably.
Layout & Design:
Since shopping can be hectic, it was important that the Ez Shopping Calculator app be streamlined. The app’s main interface looks a lot like a normal calculator, and editing your list is controlled by a simple swipe gesture for optimal efficiency.
The app’s three main areas are organized in tabs at the bottom of the screen (calculator, sales tax and list). So accessing any of these options is simple.
While simple is good in this context, the app could use a little freshening up. Maybe a selection of skins for the app would give it an extra umph. Still, the app is practical and, despite a few garish color choices, easy to use.
At the end of the day, the Ez Shopping Calculator is an extremely useful little app, with a clear concept and no frills. It costs $.99 to download the app from iTunes, or, if you include sales tax, approximately $1.09. That’s not too bad for an app that could actually save you money.
Ez Shopping Calculator iPhone app requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
