**Version 3.0 is a huge update which has just been submitted on 4/16 and greatly simplifies your sales tax settings. Look for it soon!*****

Have you been looking for an auto finance app that lets you save your deals and reload them later + handle all the important details of a car lease or purchase. iLeaseMyCar Pro lets you store and reload your deals as you shop around at different dealers and handles all the details of auto finance. For those in sales, you can save a customers deal, reload it when they come back, edit it if they want to change something and save it again! Use deal garage to store monthly lease programs for quick payment calculations.

When you are going to spend thousands of dollars on a vehicle spend $3 on an auto finance app that handles the entire transaction from trade-in, payment, drive-offs, and sales tax for a purchase or a lease. iLeaseMyCar Pro helps you with complex auto transaction details like rolling sales tax and fees into your transaction, handling sales tax in states that don’t simply tax the lease payment, handling trade-in sales tax credit, and reverse calculations. iLeaseMyCar Pro gives you much of the functionality car dealers have in their software, in the palm of your hand for a fraction of the price. No other app comes even close. iLeaseMyCar Pro uses helper views that allow you to quickly enter all the details of your deal. The first snapshot shows 4 of the 5 views that make up the lease calculator. For the sales professional, don’t lose a customer going back to your office to calculate their payment–run numbers for them right on the showroom floor!

iLeaseMyCar Pro is the premiere tool for closing the deal without leaving the showroom floor. This tool has been tested with numerous real deals sent to me from sales professionals like you. If you sell or buy cars for a living it is a must have. All of the items mentioned in the reviews have already been added with version 2.1. You’ll pay for this app hundreds of times over by negotiating a better lease or purchase deal and for the sales professional with just one commission.

PanoLab$0.00 from Originate Labs PanoLab

PanoLab is the first application to enable photographers to capture and assemble multi-frame panoramas and collages directly on the iPhone. PanoLab makes it simple to align photos that you pull from your photo library or capture on the fly. Once you’ve finished building your panorama, you may save it back to your photo library for viewing, emailing, and sharing online. PanoLab’s features include:

— a multi-touch, OpenGL-accelerated interface for exploring and editing your panorama
— hemispherical panoramas — up to 180° field of view vertically and horitzontally!
— capture images on the fly using the iPhone camera, or use existing images in your library
— linear projection — output images contain no distortion
— up to 1024×768 output images

Unlike collage applications, PanoLab applies perspective correction and linear projection to make many photos from one viewpoint align into a cohesive wide-angle view.

Unlike other panorama applications available for iPhone, PanoLab joins photos both vertically and horizontally, and can combine as few as 2 or as many as 30 images.

See what other photographers are doing with PanoLab and PanoLab Pro at and

Check out the Pro version of PanoLab for advanced features such as:

– EXTRA-WIDE AND HIGH-RESOLUTION EXPORTS: a wide variety of aspect ratios and resolutions for saving images back to your photo album.

– EXPOSURE ADJUSTMENT: adjust exposure and white balance manually, or let PanoLab Pro do it automatically.

– AUTOSAVE: works in progress are preserved when you exit PanoLab Pro or take a call.

Auf dem IPhone kann man malen
Mein kleines Spielzeug, das IPhone hat viel mehr auf Lager als man glaubt. Heute habe ich mich mit der Bearbeitung von grade damit geschossenen Fotos befasst und dabei ist mir auch folgende kleine Software aufgefallen…

Auto Loan / Lease Calculator$1.99 from Mobile Simplified Auto Loan / Lease Calculator

This is a simple application that makes it easy to determine the details of a Loan or Lease for a new or used car. Just by entering in the loan amount, down payment + trade value, interest rate and loan length term, the calculator will do all the hard work of calculating the loan monthly payment. For a lease, additional information such as money factor and sales tax will be required to calculate the monthly lease payment. This utility is meant to be easy to use and provide quick information to both car buyers and car sales professional alike.

Reverse Loan Mode Selection: This lets you choose from calculating the monthly payment if you know what price of car you want or reverse. You can also determine the value of car based on knowing what monthly payment you want.

SHAKE for background color selection. If you don’t like the background colors, just shake your iPhone/iPod and the background colors will change.
