Shoppers CalculatorShoppers Calculator

This is a simple, calculator for your shopping trip. It’s designed from the belief that having information like the total to hand is really important so I’ve tried to make sure that this info stays visible through adding items, editing them etc. For those in locations that use Sales Tax, it can calculate this for you as you go along.

It has a couple of features that are really helpful.

  • Shopping Lists
  • Shopping History
  • Statistics about individual items
  • Item quantities by weight
  • Support for multiple Sales Tax rates
  • Shopping History ($1 for the complete history feature)
  • 8 Categories of Discount (19 with In-App Purchase for $1)
  • Can get your local tax rate (In-App purchase for $1)
  • landscape mode – I think it’s the only app in this field that has that feature.
  • A buy everything purchase options

Get My Sales Tax

Get My Sales TaxThis is a quick tool to get your sales tax rate wherever you are in the USA.  It provides a neat breakdown by city, state, county and district as well.  This should be really useful to people who travel a lot around the US. It now also provides a history, so you don’t need to look up places you’ve already done.

The service that I am using to get the tax rates charges for usage and so while I’m providing a free trial, that trial includes adds and is severely limited.  To remove the adds and all other limitations, buy it outright for $1.Get it from Microsoft
