App For Calculating Cost Per Ounce When Shopping

I made an app for iPhoneiPad and Android that helps you calculate the cost-per-ounce of products when you are grocery shopping. It is great for comparison shoppers and couponers.

Scenario: Let's say there is a 32 ounce box of cereal for $5 on the shelf, and on the shelf below there is a 24 ounce box for $4. This app helps you quickly figure out which one is actually the better deal. In this case the $5 box is the better deal at about 15.6 cents an ounce whereas the $4 box ends up costing about 16.6 cents an ounce.

The app is very easy to use: Just enter the dollar amount and the ounces, push the button to calculate the cost per ounce, and there you have it!

Tip: Even though the app was specifically made to calculate cost-per ounce, you could possibly also get away with using it to calculate cost-per-pound, cost-per-gallon, and even cost-per-diaper if you wanted to.

3 Ways To Edit Office Documents From Your iPad

While Microsoft has not released a native app that allows you to edit Microsoft Office documents on an iPad, there are multiple tools that allow you to use Word or Excel through a streaming remote session.

Here are three services that I recommend looking into for using Office programs from your iPad:

1. Nivio
Nivio actually logs you into a remote session of Windows. You can use Word, Excel and more.

2. CloudOn
CloudOn opens Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in full screen mode. It connects to, DropBox, and Google Drive.

3.  OnLive Desktop
OnLive Desktop also logs you into a remote session of Windows where you can use different apps including Word and Excel.

A WiFi Internet connection is required in order to use Office programs on all three of these iPad apps because Word or Excel itself is not running on the iPad. Instead you are connected to a remote server where it shows you an interactive screen-share of the app.
