At the moment Taxometer is available in English and German language. Taxometer is available
for Windows Phone and Microsoft Smartphone devices. If there is interest a Pocket PC edition may follow.
The Windows Phone edition is only available through Microsoft's Marketplace for Windows Phone!
At the moment the Windows Phone edition of Taxometer looks like:
For taking the screen-shots I used a real world example when I used a taxi in Vienna by myself. On this date/time the idea of this application was born since
I liked to know if everything (price calculation) was correct.
The real world example for Taxometer (invoice given by the taxi-driver):
Everything was correct of course but I thought that specially for tourists or people like me only infrequently
taking a taxi it would be helpful to know which
costs a cab ride in Vienna will cause.
Since the price calculation depends on several aspects (e.g. distance, time, method of ordering the taxi, red-letter day,
idle-time, ...) the result of the calculation by this
app is only a (good) approach since the 'idle time' is not listed on the invoice. The 'idle time' is the time when the cab stops (e.g. red traffic lights,
traffic jam, ...).
For the real-world example the idle time was about 5.8 minutes which sounds reasonable for me.
The tip was not included in the invoice so that I got a good basis for starting
developing the Taxometer application.
Even so the calculation was developed using TDD and test-first approach I cannot guarantee that it is absolutely
accurate and error-free.
I cannot provide warranty of any kind. The result of the calculation is only an approach and gives you an idea if everything is correct or not.
