[prMac.com] Bethel Park, Pennsylvania - Independent developer Shawn Berry has announced the release of Gift Card Calculator version 1.0 for iOS, the new utility app that is redefining the way people use gift cards.
Got a gift card over the holidays? Have you ever been out somewhere with only a gift card and no extra funds for purchases? When you are buying a meal did you ever find yourself not knowing if your gift card would cover that extra side or drink once taxes were applied, or if gratuity would even be covered? The same could happen with a department store gift card because it can be confusing when some items are taxable and some aren't. What about when you are at the checkout and you see something that you would like to have, but you have no idea if that extra impulse item will put you over the card balance? The Gift Card Calculator will help you get an indicator of what you can really spend with your card and stay under the card balance.
* Simple easy to use interface, no swiping back and forth in multiple screens
* Add transactions as you walk around the store to see a running balance and display of what you would pay if you checked out right now
* Add a gratuity percentage if using a restaurant card. Displays tip amount to be given
* Simple Tax On/Off switch when adding in a non-taxable item
* Helps teens understand what they can really purchase with their Gift Card, without calling their parents for financial backup
* Great assistance tool to use when shopping on the web with a gift card
* If you ever had a gift card, you NEED this app to aid in making smart decisions
* Great app to complement holiday gift cards
"After a trial run in December, Gift Card Calculator is now ready for the world! It equips iOS users with a powerful tool that keeps focus on spending goals." says Shawn Berry.
