Description

iPocketChange is a new and useful way to keep track of your coins.

Do you have any coins in your pocket?

KEY FEATURES:

* Saves the quantity of each coin that exists in your wallet.

* Tells you whether you can pay for something with exact change.

* Automatically subtracts the amount you're paying from what you have.

* Saves you money by keeping track of your coins and helping you to utilize them.

THE PROBLEM:

A Subway sandwich is $5.41, including tax. You have six $1 bills, 1 quarter, 1 dime, 1 nickel, and 4 pennies. What would you give the cashier? If this question takes you more than 10 seconds to answer, stop fussing. Use iPocketChange, and save yourself the time and hassle.

You do these kinds of transactions every day. Eventually, we each have an enormous jar of coins. It's a hassle to count and wrap the coins, and it costs money to pay a machine to count them. iPocketChange is the solution. It keeps track of your change at the touch of a finger.

WHY I USE IT:

I have a bunch of coins in my wallet right now. Although I know there are coins in there, I have no idea which coins. It turns out that I have 6 quarters, 4 dimes, 1 nickel, and 1 penny. But once I dump these back in my wallet, I'll have no recollection of how many that was. All I'll know is: "I have a bunch of coins in my wallet."

USAGE SCENARIO:

iPocketChange tracks the change you get, as you get it. When you pay for something with cash, you get a few coins back. Take out your iPhone or iPod touch, open iPocketChange, and tap the coins you just received. Sleep your device, and you're done. It's quick and easy. The app saves the information automatically, and now it knows what's in your wallet or purse, or whatever.

Now here's the cool part. The next time you go to buy something, let's say the total is $8.58. Normally, you'd have no idea whether you need to pay $9 and get change, or if you have the right coins to pay for it exactly. Pull out your iPhone or iPod touch, and on iPocketChange's first screen, there's a sliding wheel for selecting the cents part of the item's cost. Scroll to 58, and the app will tell you whether you have exact change, based on what it knows is in your wallet. Let's say you have exact change. Tap "Pay", and the app automatically subtracts from your wallet's contents 2 quarters, 1 nickel, and 3 pennies 58 cents. Sleep the device, and pull out your wallet. You can be confident that you have the right coins to make exact change.

FUN EXTRAS:

* Original photos taken with a professional digital SLR camera.

* Coin sound.

* Accelerometer support: move the coins around the screen!

iPocketChange currently supports only U.S. currency, but if you're interested, we may add support for other currencies.

AMAZING

:
OMG! This has to be most fantastic useless app ever. I dont know how I function without it. For example I bought a newspaper for .75 cents. I
was totally confused whether I could afford this luxury purchase. First thing I did was whipped out my trusty ipod touch and started this app. I then I yanked every freaking coin from every pocket in clothih

It's a good idea but I never use it because it's kinda weird to just take out your iPod and take like 5 minutes to get change
