App Calculator for Cattle Auctions
Specifically this app is a calculation tool for use at livestock auctions. A local cattle farmer asked me to do it to help make decisions more quickly at cattle auctions. The app will quickly calculate the price per kilo or lb. of livestock lots. Incorporating a number wheel to keep up with the auctioneer’s call, the price per kilo is displayed. This depends on the estimated weight of a beast with a 10% leeway. As this auction calculating tool also keeps track of purchases along the way, you know how much you are spending. This app makes auction calculations easy and fast giving you the advantage at any livestock auction.

An app which is a learning to read story book with activities on each page. There are word searches, crosswords, dot-to-dot, colouring, mazes, geography and word jumbles. Consequently this encourages learning and literacy. It concentrates on Australian animals and flora. Beautifully illustrated, the story can be read to the child whilst words are highlighted or the child can get help with words or just read themselves.
