Meter Readings (iOS)

mricon57 Closely monitor your household energy and water usage and the chances are you will SAVE MONEY!

This useful application makes it easy to MONITOR your household utility meters. Once you start entering readings, your usage, costs and savings are calculated and displayed in easy to visualise graphs.

For UK users, you can also compare your usage and costs against energy supplier prices in your area to see if you can SAVE EVEN MORE money. You can even switch suppliers directly from your device!

The following sections summarise the main application screens, and describe what you can do with each one. For a detailed description, follow the “More information” links.

Note that all the screen shots shown are from an iPhone, however the iPad equivalents look very similar. The only real difference between the iPhone and iPad versions is that some screens are shown as popups rather than sliding a whole new view into place.
