    OK, forget the fame and money. This is all a developer really needs: Elizabeth Chambers doing a quick story on our app (MeterRead) for www.LivingGreenChannel.com

    It's the headline story right now or here's the direct link http://www.livinggreenchannel.com/302988/

    We put the app down to $.99 (reg. $2.99) in her honor for the beginning of 2009 (and because she says $.99 throughout her story) LOL.

    Major update coming very soon to include gas and water reads plus more.

    App looks ok, but for some reason I avoid stuff that makes a play on geeks with the girl angle.

    All of my favorite things collide

    I have and use this app all the time. And Elizabeth Chambers is my favorite host. I see her on CurrentTV all the time. How long has she been doing living green channel. More good apps and keep bringing me more Elizabeth pieces.

    I don't know if that's a "helloooooo nurse" or "how YOU doin?" Nummy.

    App looks like a good idea. I may have to download it when I get home. I think I have replaced every bulb humanly possible in my house with CFLs (including the darn flood lights outside). All that's left is 6 in the bathroom (waiting on them to die before replacing) and stuff like the oven and fridge lights.

    You changed to CFLs thinking you'd save electricity?

    Re: the app. Looks well done but how is it any better than entering your meter readings into a spreadsheet?

    I hear you...

    Elizabeth Chambers is a professional with a degree in journalism from the University of Texas with experience on television, the web and she even had a part in "The Game Plan" movie starring "The Rock". I'll admit that I played the "angle" a bit for marketing purposes, but definitely not to target "geeks" or any other group. I was targeting most of America. I don't want her or you to be offended so I'm changing the "Hottie" to just "Hot"... that's a better description.

    Take care and thanks for checking out the app.

    I tend to agree, and in fact entering the figures in a spreadsheet would probably be quicker as you don't have to faff around with rotary dials. The app may look nice but until it offers some input for costing and, in the UK, is able then accound for tiered unit costs (first two thousand units @2x p, then remainder at x p) as well as gas and water metering, it is of limited benefit.
