I was checking up on Mo Calc over at Windows Phone 7 marketplace today and I came across an interesting finance app.
It’s called Loanster. Check out these screenshots below:
Despite drawing inspiration from Mo Calc, I am assured that Loanster is a completly legit and independently written app. Its author Tony was nice enough and agreed to tweak the UI in the next version in order to differentiate Loanster from Mo Calc a bit more.
Despite my earlier blog post, I decided to take part in the “sexiest” mortgage calculator contest after all. It seemed like a perfect excuse to give Silverlight 3 a try. The end result may not be the sexiest (I’m a developer, not a designer), but I think it’s fairly functional. Actually, I wish I had a tool like that when I was shopping for mortgages. I had a lot of fun writing this app, and I learned a lot.
Check it out!
EDIT: Nice – I just stumbled upon a website of Rene de Paula jr that mentions my calculator (translation from Portuguese). News travel fast on the internets =)
Congrats to the winners!
