Pricing App.

Post by GeoSpectrum » Fri 03 Dec, 2021 7:29 am

I spent some time a while back working on a pricing app that I could use on my iPad, iPhone and PC. I’m considering reviving it and offering it to fellow framers.

It’s quite simple and doesn’t have the bells and whistles that some of the others have but is is functional and may be all somebody needs. It allows you to calculate the price, save it, email quotes etc you can add you own mouldings, prices and other options.

This is the link to the app. Let me know if you have any problems accessing it.

Let me know what you think.

Works on android as well, I just developed it for myself and I forgot to mention Android.

You will need this app to try it out on an Android device.

Alan, it's a good start; but, a bit limiting for most framers IMHO.
You need to add at least
- various types of glazing
- a blank line or 3 for add on charges
- various types of mat boards
- various types of mounting procedures

Hi, yes all is in work. I based it on my own business model which is quite different to most, it will
Be changing bit by bit over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for the feedback.

A quick update on my app with an updated screenshot.
It can now accept two mouldings for slips etc
Vat show/hide
Saves job
Choice of mounts, glazing and backing
Discount show/hide
Prints saves emails invoices
Prints saves email Workshop docket
Print/email quotation
Record customer details
Add mouldings, glazing, backing etc
Show/hide those items not required to save screen space.

Still working on data storage and GDPR….

Some way to go but making progress. Ignore the pricing show, it’s just got a load of dummy data in it at the moment.

Hi Alan,

I'ver just attempted to try your app out, but I'm having the same problem. It says I do not have access to it.

Any way you can let me have a go?

Thanks
