Do you find yourself getting frustrated when you quickly try to figure out percentages in your head? Maybe you are trying to add a tip to a bill, or perhaps you are trying to figure out what the discount translates to in dollars. The Percent Calculator app for your iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone gives you a quick and easy way to get the answers you want. Thanks to this app you won’t be stumbling over the figures in your head as you do the math.
One of the great things about this app is that so many people can make use of it. If you happen to work in sales this is a fabulous way to quickly conduct calculations. This is also handy for just everyday purposes as mentioned such as figuring out the tip on a bill. The app boasts one-touch percent keys, which is exactly why it's so easy and quick to use. It is very basic, but that's the look it's going for.
Now this app isn’t anything new to the iTunes store; in fac,t it’s been around for a while without any recent updates. I don’t feel it’s suffering though because this isn’t meant to be a fancy feature-packed app. The comments are very complimentary with people raving about its ease of use and that it really acts as a go-to calculator for these types of calculations.
Using the App
As soon as you launch the app you will notice its neat and uncluttered user interface. For me, I almost find that it’s too simple and for that reason you are left a little confused about what you should be doing. If you feel the same, check out the information key that takes you to a brief tutorial. This will clear up any questions you may have. I feel like this app almost sells itself short in a sense that it can do a lot more than you may initially think is possible.
Use the TIP/A% to set the discounts and mark-ups. You can add tax, subtract, and split it. There is even a sell-cost-profit-margin feature that is ideal for salespeople. Your answers show up immediately and you can also copy and paste them, which is a cool feature to have.
