So you're out shopping and you see a huge sale on BlackBerry accessories. You head on over to peruse the selection and see the BlackBerry PlayBook case that you've been wanting is on sale from $49.99 with 45% off. Next to it is one very similar by some other company and it's on sale for $39.99 with 35% off. Which is the better deal? Some of you could figure this out in your head or with your devices calculator. I'm lazy and hate math with a passion so I'd BBM or call my husband to figure it out (feel free to laugh because he does every time I call for something like this). Now, thanks to the Discount Calculator a FREE app by Huy Bui, I can just plug in the numbers, see what the actual sale price is and how much I'm saving.
Discount Calculator is a useful shopping app that helps you calculate the price after discount for an item on sale.Simply input the original price and discount percentage then Discount Calculator will show you the final sale price and how much you will save. It has a simple, easy to use UI and takes up very little space (69 KB). The only addition to this app that I would make is having a spot to input the tax rate so you could see the total price you'd have to pay.

i just downloaded this yesterday at the mall! had it on my old Android device and was so glad i found a good free version on BB. I use this app all the time :) mainly cause I'm horrible with %'s :P

Really? New to our planet, or did you learn your social skills and world view from Gaddafi's Scool of Netiquette? Want to go toe-to-toe working statistical formulas with no calculator by any chance? It is NICE to have an app to work these questions when a person just doesn't want to do it mentally. Doesn't have a thing to do with IQ (unlike, for instance, comments like yours posted in a public forum). Please don't drag on the spin of the world any more than you have to.

Thanks for the tip on the app. Just might have to give it a spin.

you are right! Your social skills are much better as we can see on this public forum, your polite and friendly! chapeau!
We should all learn a lesson from you!
